A long time ago at the Japanese Imperial court, the Chinese Emperor offered a giant panda bear as a symbol of peace to the Japanese Emperor. Since then, the Japanese Emperor has entrusted his court members (the players) with the difficult task of caring for the animal by tending to his bamboo garden.

In Takenoko, the players will cultivate land plots, irrigate them, and grow one of the three species of bamboo (Green, Yellow, and Pink) with the help of the Imperial gardener to maintain this bamboo garden. They will have to bear with the immoderate hunger of this sacred animal for the juicy and tender bamboo. The player who manages his land plots best, growing the most bamboo while feeding the delicate appetite of the panda, will win the game.

    Takenoko is a beautifully designed game from the artwork to the mechanics.
    The components have some really lovely attention to detail for a game of this price – not to mention the very cute panda mini.
    A great ‘entry’ level game which is family friendly but with enough interesting mechanics to be properly enjoyed by adults only too and with enough variety to play different strategies. Set up is minimal as you play tiles out of the game box in order to build up your hexagonal game board as each player tries to complete their own objectives while guessing who best to thwart their opponents.
    While 3&4 player games make the objectives tricker to accomplish the game does also work well with 2 players. Would highly recommend as a board game shelf staple.
