I found a copy of Bohnanza at Goodwill it it was missing one card, a black eyed pea. I assume that it isnt that big of a deal, but I just wanted to check.

I guess you won't notice it in gameplay, but given the price of this game, I'd say go and buy a new one meeple

If you will be usng this copy, as a courtesy, I would tell every1 before the game starts that there is indeed -1 blackeyed bean. I've noticed this is one game where people make more effort to keep track of what cards have gone by and what's left, often with good results.

If you bought a German version of the game, we would be able to send you the missing card. If you bought the American version however, you might have to contact Rio Grande Games. :)

Take care,

This is my chance to convey something meaningful! Darn. Wasted it.

I'd say that it matters enough that it should be made clear at the start of the game, but doesn't matter enough to be a problem.

The rules in the Rio Grande version suggest that you remove certain beans based on the number of players. So if you're removing the coffee beans, for example, just leave in one coffee bean and tell everyone it's a black-eyed bean. Not aesthetically pleasing, but it's one option.

Thanks for the replies, everyone. I had someone offer me an extra card they had so luckily I won't need to play with an incomplete set for long.
