I searched the forums here, but couldn't find any comments about it.

During a game last night, the question of how to sell the Cocoa beans came up again. The sell prices listed on the card are:

1 bean - 2 gold
3 beans - 3 gold
4 beans - 4 gold

Which seems really strange... why would anyone plant more than one bean, and where do you get the extra gold from?

We decided that it was probably a typo and should have been 2 beans - 2 gold. Is that correct?

Yeah, after I posted, I looked through all the images and didn't see any with my typo. I think I'll take a picture and post it here to prove I'm not insane. (And also look at the pics to make sure all my beans are good!)

My set is the same way. If I remember correctly the typo was in the first printing and was fixed in later versions.

No, I said "oh, brother," not "go hover."

Ken is correct. Early on they (either Amigo or RGG, can't remember) offered replacement cards, but that was a few years ago and I don't know whether they are still available.

I just bought a copy of this game a couple of weeks ago, and I have this misprinted card. We have just been grabbing an extra bean from the discard pile when selling it.

some editions have replacement cards in an envelope under the insert.
