A special thanks to these two for letting me use one of their cars for a couple days and helping me get to and from my conference while I was in Denver. I got to hang out with them quite a bit during our visit since they are living with my parents right now, but not for long because they just bought a house! Congrats Milan & Rachael!
During much of the time we were hanging out, they were immersing me further and further into my new obsession. They taught me a game called Bohnanza and we played it almost every single night I was there. Now I’m in withdrawal since I haven’t played in 10 days!
I was skeptical at first—a game where you’re a bean farmer? WHAT? After playing once, I was hooked. It really is a fabulous little game. When I went to look for it on Amazon, I noticed that it got five stars! It’s not that often that you see a five star rating on something with 40 reviews! It’s fun watching how different people play the game, based on their individual strategies and negotiation styles. And I love that there are very few rules when it comes to the trading and negotiation—my brother Milan’s been playing for years and Patrick and I introduced him to some strategies he’d never thought of before! Watch out—the game will never be the same!
(If you don’t understand the title of this post, well, then I guess you’re just gonna have to go get the game!)
