Long, long ago, the Emperor of China, in a gesture of peace, offered the Emperor of Japan a Giant Panda. You have been appointed to the delicate task of caring for this politically-important Panda and tending to the Emperor's illustrious bamboo garden.

You must cultivate plots of land using irrigation and intelligence so that bamboo, the only food that the Panda will eat, grows in abundance. But beware of the sacred animal's uncontrollable appetite for crunchy young sprouts ...

This game is adorable. It isn't the best at anything - not in terms of dynamics, artwork or general enjoyment but it is fun, easy to learn and it has a panda, so I can't complain too much.

Essentially, you have two characters - a gardener and a panda - and a lot of goals to achieve. You can gain points in a number of ways; by growing bamboo as the gardener, by eating bamboo as the panda or by arranging hexagonal tiles in certain patterns.

It sounds easy but it can get quite tactical - if you sense that your opponent is trying to build bamboo of a certain colour, you may wish to move the panda over to their tile and eat their bamboo, gaining you points in the process. There are also tiles that can assist you, which you can pick up if you roll a certain symbol on the weather die at the beginning of your turn - these can prevent people from stealing your bamboo or make it easier to grow bamboo on a specific tile etc.

It's a fairly good gateway game as it's quick and easy to teach. It's also family friendly if you're looking for that kind of game.

Overall, I enjoy it when I play it but very rarely do I feel the urge to pull it off the shelf. There always seems to be some other game that scratches the itch better.

One great game for all ages

The game is simple to play and playable over and over again does not take to long to play either.

The art work is cool both on the box and the game pieces the Panda and the Gardner are well done and the best bit.

So worth getting and a winner for Birthdays etc
