last night jeremy taught me how to play 'bohnanza', a card game whose objective it is to harvest and sell your cards which are made up of different types of beans*, (or 'bohnes' in german. get it?! BOHNanza?!).
it's a very fun game that isn't that hard to learn but becomes more and more strategic the better you get at it and the more skilled you become at bargaining a trade (or intimidating your opponent into submission**).
plus, the next time you're out with friends you can talk about how you're now a very successful bean farmer which is really impressive when they don't know you're talking about a card game.
* jeremy says the 'garden bean' pictured above, looks exactly like me with my game face on.
** i am in no way suggesting that swinging your fist around in a suggestive manner or baring your teeth like an angry gorilla are successful trade negotiation strategies. these are just things that seem to work well for me.
