Players care for the Nippon Emperor’s giant panda by keeping up with his bamboo plantation. Players cultivate land plots, irrigate them, and grow one of the three species of bamboo (Green, Yellow and Pink). At the end of the game, whichever player has earned the most points from his objectives wins!


The chart indicating Takenoko requires 2-4 players and recommends a party 3, plays in 45 minutes, features an animal, environmental, farming, and territory building themes, and offers contracts, dice, end game bonuses, grid movement, set collection and tile placement mechanics.
