This game is so much fun. I first played it at my homechurch many years ago at a game night. You try to corner the market on a certain commodity by getting all the same cards of a certain kind, for example all the corn cards or all the wheat cards. You keep trading cards with everyone to try to get all the cards you need, and you don't know what you're going to get in the trade. And if you end up with the Bear card in the end you lose points (and sometimes with the Bull card you do too). It's most fun with lots of players, and it gets kind of crazy! I've played with Gene and Jean and my mom and others, and we really get into it. We add our own touch in that whoever ends up with Bear card and the Bull card at the end of the hand has to make that animal sound.
