- Plant it themself
- Trade it away
- Donate them
When the deck runs out, reshuffle the discard pile to create a new deck.
Players may harvest any time. Look at bottom of bean card to see how many cards to flip over as coins when a certain number of beans are traded in. Coins are kept with the player and the other bean cards are placed in discard pile. Player must choose a field with 2 or more beans to harvest unless both fields have only 1 bean each.
The game ends when the deck runs out 3 times. The current round finishes (possible for only one card in market). The player with the most gold coins wins. Ties broken by most cards in hand.
