This is Takenoko. In this game you are managing the bamboo gardens of the Japanese emperor. Controlled mainly through actions selected on your player card and affected by a roll of the special die you cultivate plots, irrigate and fertilize... and contend with the recent gift from your employer's Chinese counterpart, a bamboo loving panda. The object of the game is to get enough completed cards to trigger the endgame at which point your scores will be tallied. These cards are completed through guiding the panda towards specific colour combinations of bamboo, irrigation of specific plot configurations and growing the right combinations of bamboo.
This is one of those games that is great for so many levels of gamers. A six year old can easily grasp the concepts, an adult wondering what's out there beyond the traditional picks will find a good balance of luck and strategy. If you've been playing more complex games there are a number of house rules and variants which can be used to add a bit of weight. Anyone will be interested in the components. Lots of wood, cute miniatures, big hex tiles with great colours. This looks great on the table and is sure to engage. Plays pretty quick and you won't be bored.

Our first play of Barony, a game designed by Marc André (known for Splendor). We somehow neglected to build our Strongholds... so there is definately a lot of room to get better at this! But a very fun game, can’t wait to play again!
Who's ever played Corto by @editionsmatagot ? It's a really unique area control game with stunning art, which is the reason I bought it! It's co-designed by Sebastien Pauchon of Jaipur fame, and based off a comic book series from Italy called Corto Maltese. In the game, you basically play cards, placing your markers and removing other players markers based on card actions and move the Corto and Rasputin markers to do the same. You will score points based on markers you have adjacent. Killing character cards also gives you points. What's really cool is the game comes with 6 boards (called adventures) and you choose 3-4 (depending on player count) to use during the game, which leads to lots of replayablilty. And each board has other objectives you can use to gain points. @jacklynszabo and I tried it last night, and I'll tell you, there is really nothing like this game, both in art and mechanics. It's probably one of the most gorgeous games I own, and want to try it with more player counts. And it's making me want to read the comics as well! We gotta try this one @dragonpuplees !
First impression of „Meeple Circus“: I’m normally not that keen on dexterity games, but this one caught my eye, mainly because of it’s theme. Over the course of three rounds each player gathers different meeples and components, representing performers, animals and props to create his/her own circus spectacle. The first two rounds are rehearsals where all players work simultaneously. Players get victory points by achieving different meeple configurations in their circus arena. You get more points if you have managed to acquire the most useful performers and props during the preparation phases and if you’re courageous and skillful enough to arrange your meeples in more difficult and thrilling configurations than your opponents. The third round is the great premiere, where every player has to demonstrate his or her planing, creativity and dexterity skills in front of the others. To make it even more fun, the premiere-round runs on a timer and is accompanied by circus music. On top of that each player gets a specific task to do during the premiere (like clapping in your hands every time a new performer enters the circus arena) that gives additional points if done correctly. This game is so much fun! I like the fact that „Meeple Circus" doesn’t rely on the dexterity aspect alone, but also offers and rewards a few tactical and strategic choices. The main seller of the game is definitely it’s theme. Everything you do in this game fits the theme perfectly and it all comes together to create a really fun experience. #firstimpression#meeplecircus#cedricmillet#matagot#dexterity#boardgames
during season 1 of tabletop, i saw this game and immediately fell in love because of its cuteness.. but besides the cuteness there is a great game underneath it.. the components are great and there is just something about the tactile-ness of those bamboos that relaxes me.. the strategy can also be cutthroat, as the map can be tight real quick and the bamboos can grow out of control quickly.. what's challenging about this game is the strategy in which whatever you move might be more beneficial to your opponents.. there is always the angry gardener who just want to do his job and please the emperor.. but there is always the panda, and who doesn't like a cute naughty panda? #bgg#boardgames#boardgaming#tabletopgames#tabletopgaming#asmodee#matagot#takenoko#astorybehindeveryboardgame
