Title from container.
"Long, long, ago, the Emperor of China, in a gesture of peace, offered the Emperor of Japan a giant panda. You have been appointed to the delicate task of caring for this politically-important panda and tending to the Emperor's illustrious bamboo garden. You must cultivate plots of land using irrigation and intelligence so that bamboo, the only food that the panda will eat, grows in abundance. But beware of the sacred animal's uncontrollable appetite for crunchy young sprouts. The mission: to farm parcels of land, irrigate them, and have green, yellow or pink bamboo grow. In turn, players see what the weather brings and perform two actions from among those offered to them: get a new plot of land or irrigation channel, grow bamboo, feed the panda or draw an objective card. The game ends when a player has completed 7 to 9 objectives (depending on the number of players). The player who gets the best score by adding the total value of completed objectives wins the game."--Container.
