For those of you who didn't already click "Buy Now," we'll elaborate. The aim of Takenoko is to keep the Emperor happy, but when there's a giant panda on the board, we forget these things. As a player, you draw certain objective cards which have various points assigned. You then tend a garden which grows bamboo, fertilizing, irrigating, and fencing as needed. You also let the panda eat the bamboo and attempt to bring certain plots of land together. The player with the most points once one player has achieved 7 objectives is the winner. But when it's a game with a giant panda, we're all winners.
