My daughter, friend and I got a chance to play this today at GenCon during an afternoon session. Chris with Dice Hate Me and his friend Dan played with us. I should note I did Kickstart this game.
Chris explained the rules and we started playing....I should note I was the biggest loser....
What a fun game with lots to think about, but both turn order and poor brewing did me in. My daughter really picked up on research and picking up extra beans. She then cornered the market with the red beans and was able to really brew some good coffee on multiple turns.
Chris was able to partner up with her a few times to take advantage of her brewing abilities, then as Dan cornered the green beans she partnered with him. She scored almost every round.
I was unable to pull the right beans from my roast bag after realizing I had to many different color beans in my bag.
We thoroughly enjoyed the game and even though the one we played was not the final production copy the games was very nice.
If you have not played the game yet go brew a cup with Dice Hate Me.
