Each player has 2 bean fields to work with. Players may buy a third bean field for three coins at any time. On a turn, players will do the following 4 actions. At any time, players may harvest their bean field to gain coins.

When the deck runs out, reshuffle the discard pile to create a new deck.

Harvesting beans

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.
