Grow bamboo and feed the hungry panda - all in a days work at the imperial court.

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.

Great game for new and old gamers

I find this game has you tying yourself in knots trying to fulfill goals while another player could be helping you achieve those goals. This always leads to funny interactions between players. Always something worthwhile to do on your turn which is why this regarded as a good gateway game. The component quality is really high - those hexes are way bigger than I expected!
