Takenoko sees you compete in a gardening, tile placing, bamboo consuming panda fest of cuteness.
Players are given a number of objectives for example math a particular tile layout or consume a set amount / type of bamboo and on completion of tasks you score out the card and at the end of the game the player with the most victory points win, simple enough.
Players take turns in completing actions like move the panda who then eats from the tile he lands on or move the gardener who will then grow more bamboo you could also increase the landscape and draw then place new tiles.
This is a great family game however I have got some more dedicated gamers to play it on game night so this is certainly suitable for ages 7/8 and way up..
The setup and tear down times are great and the cuteness factor will certainly encourage non games to take interest.
