Won 2013 Snakey for "BEST GAME WIL WHEATON INTRODUCED TO US, AND THEN SUBSEQUENTLY LOST AT"

http://www.snakesandlattes.com/blog/83/The-2013-Snakeys:-
-Part-3/

I gave this game to my sister for Christmas. it's a cute family game, not too complex, but still challenging. The object of the game is to gain points via objectives cards, which score by different combinations of tile placement, bamboo growth, or bamboo eaten by the panda. The weather die gives each player a random bonus ability each turn, aside from the 2 base actions, which gives the game some variability without being overpowered or too random. Overall its a great starter family game.

My only gripe is the component quality. The copy I gave as a gift ended up missing the weather die, and one of the bamboo base pieces was chipped, which I'm following up with Asmodee's Canadian distributor.

Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! [4 of 5 Stars!]
