Product description

Product Description

Takenoko

A board game for two to four players by renowned designer Antoine Bauza, Takenoko allows you to work the bamboo plantations and care for the Emperor's panda yourself. Colorful miniatures for the giant panda and the Emperor’s gardener suit the game's light-spirited tone, and these figures will be critical to your designs to grow the most beautiful bamboo stands. Takenoko includes more than four dozen plastic bamboo sections and twenty-eight beautifully illustrated garden plots, which combine to create a uniq

From the Manufacturer

The players take the role of courtesans of the Nippon emperor. They take care of his Giant Panda by growing a bamboo plantation. Their mission: to farm parcels of land, irrigate them, and have green, yellow or pink bamboo grow. In turn, they see what the weather brings and perform two actions from among those offered to them: get a new plot of land or irrigation channel, grow bamboo, feed the panda or draw an objective card. The game ends when a player has completed 7 to 9 objectives (depending on the number of players). The player who gets the best score by adding the total value of their completed objective wins the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clever and cute game that plays in less than an hour. Oh and....that adorable Panda!
By New In Shrink Reviews on February 13, 2020
I absolutely love games that draw me in from the moment I lay eyes on the box, yes I admit it, I'm a sucker for great looking boxes. Better yet is when the same great art and visuals carry through to the game once it's set up on your table. Takenoko continues to deliver that same whimsical, pastel colored are style straight to the table and all the way through to the end.

This game is an absolute gem and easily pleases many types of gamers, it also is easy to teach and learn so new players need not be left out of having a great experience with this one. As mentioned before the box will draw the eyes of new gamers in your Group or possibly those who aren't as familiar with board games, and thus Takenoko excels at being a wonderful introductory game for them.

There is a great feeling of playing a competitive game with everyone without any of the stress of games with more conflict; everything is very calm and relaxed as players take their actions. Even when someone moves the Panda to eat the bamboo you've been growing for three turns, it's all very fun and forgiving. Who could ever get mad at that hungry little cutey happily munching away at all your hard work? The limited confrontation that is introduced with his mechanic of you choosing to grow bamboo while another player might be choosing to eat bamboo is good friendly fun. Besides, you better believe that afterwards you'll be trying to fulfill your own Panda objective and get them back on your next turn.

This game plays very quickly but still delivers a decent amount of planning and tactics that you can experiment with. I find it a very rewarding game with its charm and beauty being forefront among its qualities. The random element of the die roll at the beginning of your turn can add some additional variety and change to each of your turns, but a lot of your game choices will be a bit of give and take with the other players. It's almost cooperative at times in that some of your actions might secretly be benefiting your opponents and vice versa, again coming back to how simple and relaxed game play is.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone, this plays wonderfully at 2 players and above and is quite kid friendly. You'll have no trouble teaching this to anyone and be playing full games in less than 10 minutes or so, most players can even pick up and learn the game just by having experienced players go first. Takenoko may be too light of a game for someone looking for advanced strategy and wanting lots of confrontation and optimization. This game will however be perfect for anyone just wanting to play and explore a lovely bamboo garden, find joy in placing stacking those great pieces higher and higher, or anyone who just saw the Panda and knows they can pop it around the board and gobble up points. This is a winner in our home, and a game that we'll come back to for a long time; we hope you enjoy it as well!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality game that is fun and easy to learn
By Card Holder on November 18, 2019
I really like this game. The quality of the game pieces is very good. The hex cards are heavy cardboard, the bamboo, water, token and die are made from wood. I really like the storage tray they designed to keep all the pieces sorted. All the other components are a nice quality which will help the game stand up to many hours of playtime. As for the game. I have really enjoyed playing. I watched some playthroughs online to help learn the game. After playing through myself I quickly got a good understanding of the game. I don't have any other games like this one so I like that it is unique. I host game nights for college students. Many of the students that come to play games are international students. Having a game that relies on pictures and symbols is a huge plus. I would definitely recommend this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun game
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on April 15, 2018
Takenoko is a very fun game. You have to grow and harvest shoots of bamboo while completing tasks for points.

Each turn you can take multiple actions in an attempt to satisfy the criteria on the cards to score points. These include collecting bamboo, arranging tiles on certain patterns, or growing bamboo to certain heights.

You use a farmer to grow the bamboo, but there's a hungry panda to eat the bamboo too!

Games take 30 minutes or so, and is great fun for 2 players. The figures, cards, and tiles are very nicely illustrated, and they all feel high quality.

Whole family loves this game. It looks lovely and the components are good quality. Takes about 45 minutes to play. I like playing 2 player because it reduces the downtime particularly if you have slow players! Also colourblind friendly. Delivery was quick and well packaged.
