All my friends and family have loved playing this!

A beautifully designed, easy to pick up and play game with just enough strategy to get people invested and excited to play. This has become my go-to game to take to family gatherings or introduce to people who don’t play as many board games. The mechanics are easy to teach and can be picked up pretty quickly.

Gorgeous game

Takenoko is one of the most beautiful games I've ever played. The entire production is stunning with gorgeous artwork and lovely components with great attention to detail (even the panda and gardener figures are beautifully painted).

Beyond it's good looks though there is a lot going on. It's a relatively simple game to learn so it's a great gateway game, but it's also addictive! Once you've played it a few times you'll want to go back to it over and over to try different strategies and improve your score. We play it probably more than any other game because it has a nice level of challenge, especially after a long week when we're too tired for anything too heavy, and of course it has great replayability.

Appealing theme, great components, good level of challenge that will appeal to a broad range of people. I'd recommend this for both adults and families alike. It's my eight year-olds favourite game so we've just invested in the Takenoko Chibis expansion, which I'd also reccomend if you want to make the game a bit more 'thinky'!

Fun and strategic.

Played this with my boys (10 and 12). Took one game and a you tube video to learn, but then the gameplay leads to some very different games. The turns don't take too long and the game moves on well.

Good all round game with strategy, integration and some luck.

We love it.

A Bamboo Gateway

This game is a great gateway game to give new players to the boardgaming-sphere a fun and gentle introduction.

The nature of the scoring system means it's anyone's race, right up to the finish.
