I picked up Carcassonne and Bohnanza on Friday. L had seen them at SciFiGenre and thought they sounded fun. I agreed as I was going to get them anyway. We played Carcassonne that night. It was fun as I knew it would be. Z really latched onto it. We really didn’t play the farmers so much. Just the cities and roads. It made things easier. I believe he won the first game. We played one more before bed time. As the next day was Saturday, we got up and played Bohnanza. It was fun too but a bit more complex. It took me a couple of read throughs of the rules to get it all. (I’m battling allergies right now and my thinking is wonky.) But we played a while until we had to leave. The reason for leaving in the next post. All in all Bohnanza has a lot of promise I think. Z and I played Carc again a bit ago. He beat me by 12. He scored a 32 point city!
And I have Homesteaders waiting at the game store. I’ll report on that one soon.
