Took a few min to get into as most board games do for the first time, but after that we've had a lot of fun playing this.
We ended up altering some rules for the cards you can draw as one of your two actions to make sure the game would last longer and be more fun.
The game is easy to learn (we've had games with a lot more confusion) and a lot of fun with 2-4 people. The pieces and tiles are nicely made and we felt it was good value for money.

The cutest game around. There's a couple of versions of this (long box like this, and square box my friend got) they're the same though. Still fun! Great for all ages. Forever recommending

Great boardgame which really appeals to everyone. This game presents so many possibilities to take home the biggest score and gives it lods of replay value... and hey, it has a Panda.

This game is a good modern-euro game. It has a similar point scoring mechanism to Ticket to Ride, and people I have played with have agreed that it is a similar level of complexity (i.e. a good "gateway" game for people who still think that Monopoly and Scrabble are the best games out there).

This game stands out for being one of the most relaxing games. Though it is competitive, both the theme and the mechanics are quite peaceful. Players are more likely to accidentally help each other than hinder.

There is nothing wrong with this game (if you're happy with the theme), but the only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is that it has a bit less replayability than some other games, I suspect because of it's lack of tension. After the first time I played it, I did want to play again, but after that day I have never felt the urge to play it more than once. The lack of 1 star should be seen as my personal preference to have a little bit more tension in an average game, not as a sign of the game lacking anything it claims to include.

It is a good medium sized game, lasting about an hour, and at the end you will usually feel happy yet ready for whatever game will be played next.

Firstly, the game artwork is cute. No one likes an ugly game, no matter how good the gameplay. But they haven't skimped on the gameplay either. The game is fun and not too complicated to learn. I haven't played it enough to get into complex strategy, but I can tell that the more one plays, the more interesting it will be to play as players learn better strategies. Finally, I played with my father, who hates board and card type games. I had to cajole him into the first game, but he has actually initiated several games since then. So, all in all I can say that it is fun to play, easy to learn, and visually stimulating.

There are only two (mildly) negative things I have to say about the game. First, I wish they had included more wooden action markers. One of the variables of gameplay is that you get an extra action, but because there are only two action markers per player, another marker would have been nice. Not a hard problem to solve at all, though, I just use one of the spare gray cutout pieces. The other thing is that this game probably doesn't appeal so much to hardcore gamers, as I suspect it will turn out to be a little too simple, with not enough variables for people who game a lot. However, for beginners or younger players, it's an excellent game, and for more experienced gamers, it is cute and good for a few games or games with less game-inclined friends. Not least of all because no one doesn't want to play a game with pandas! Overall, I would say it's an excellent addition to any game collection.

This game is just full of cuteness. Who doesn't love a panda bear? Especially one so cute as in Takenoko. A game that appeals visually. It is probably the most beautiful game I have played. I wasn't sure if the game itself would do it for me. But the game plays very nicely and has a peaceful feel to it. As someone else said, your moves can sometimes help other players rather than hinder. I would recommend this game for families. I can see kids really enjoying the beauty and fun in this game. That said adults will very much appreciate the beauty and fun of this game too and it a great choice for a relaxed game session. Rules are easy and the rulebook itself is beautiful (surprise, surprise). Easy to learn and fairly quick to play. You can see quite quickly this game has a unique feel to it, but there is a strong game in there too.

Only negative - it's a bit expensive but everything you get is good quality.

Very nice game and I hope you join me in making 'nom nom nom' noises when I move the panda to eat some bamboo! :)

If your into gaming in a proper way (i.e. beyond Monopoly and Trivial Pursuit) this is a great game for introducing younger players and those less geeky than you. Each player has a set of objectives (to grow bamboo, feed the panda and lay out more grid tiles) which are achieved by working together (although this is unintentional). Like many games you have two actions on each go to try and achieve these tasks as well as a dice throw which may or may not help. Playing time is not too long (usually can be done within an hour or less). Rules may seem complex at first but even my 4 and 5 year old boys and the Grandparents were OK after a couple of practice runs. The price tag may seem high but the production values are reflected in this. Each piece of bamboo as well as the figures are very well made and durable - almost too good to use! Overall:

PROS:
Quick, well made pieces, easy to pick up rules, endless variety of games and fun.

CONS:
High price.
