I was excited to finally play Takenoko. It seemed like something I would like from the get-go and it was. With its mellow tile-laying and set-collecting gameplay all wrapped up in a cute theme featuring a hungry panda and a hard-working farmer, it’s hard not to like this game.
I think it’s safe to say that I’m an Antoine Bauza fan. I’ve enjoyed Hanabi, Tokaido, 7 Wonders, and now Takenoko.
