In Takenoko, the players will cultivate land plots, irrigate them, and grow one of the three species of bamboo (Green, Yellow, and Pink) with the help of the Imperial gardener to maintain this bamboo garden. They will have to bear with the immoderate hunger of this sacred animal for the juicy and tender bamboo. The player who manages his land plots best, growing the most bamboo while feeding the delicate appetite of the panda, will win the game.

Here at Surfin’ Meeple, we concentrate on bringing creative and innovative games from Europe to the US market. The Collector’s Shelf from Surfin’ Meeple is an extension of this idea, bring deluxe and collector’s editions of games to you the fans! In addition Collector’s Shelf from Surfin’ Meeple has plans to produce limited print runs of new games that don’t necessarily fit into a mass market framework, but are games we believe in and want to share with the board gaming public.

Help us make this Kickstarter a success! Thank You. 

The only thing more awesome than a great board game is a GIANT version of that game! You know what else is awesome? Pandas! Especially giant ones.

Word on the street is that Giant Takenoko & Giant Takenoko Chibis are becoming increasingly difficult to find.  We have heard the the community’s desire for another printing. After much consideration and working closely with Bombyx Studio and Matagot Editions, it was determined Kickstarter was the best way to get these games into your hands. By funding these games on Kickstarter we are able to provide these special offerings at a great price and add some additional cool stuff.  

How about some adorable giant baby panda figures! The first 3 are included in the FULL PANDA Pledge Leave. And cool Takenoko themed products. Even MORE baby pandas to unlock through Stretch Goals.

Join us in our quest to go FULL PANDA!!! 

If you have Takenoko or both Takenoko & Takenoko Chibis in their standard size do not fear we have a Pledge Level for you SMALL PANDA. Back at $1 to be eligible to get Broken Token’s wood box insert for both standard sized games. Also, blue acrylic water to replace the blue wood water and 3 nice silk print bags to keep all 3 colors of  bamboo organized. Upgrade your standard game for the special bundle price of $35.00 during the pledge manager phase of this campaign. 


NOTE: Argentina, Mexico and Chile must be shipped by air from China.


Shipping & Crowd OX

The above is a list of rough estimates for shipping in the US, based on volumetric weight for each Pledge Level. Keep in mind these are just estimates, and costs will rise based on weight increases from unlocked stretch goals and any optional buys you choose.

We will be charging shipping after the Kickstarter concludes based on the actual costs incurred to ship. Collection of shipping will occur during our pledge manager after the campaign ends, using most Major Credit Cards and PayPal.

This is so we can be fair to our backers as shipping is rarely one size fits all.

Risks and challenges

The Collector’s Shelf is a new way for the Surfin’ Meeple team to bring cool games to you! Our team has years of experience with publishing games and our team is comprised of members with an impeccable track record of successfully delivering Kickstarter projects to thousands of supporters. That said, there are always complexities and considerations in a project of this scope that may cause delays. There are many steps in the process of manufacturing and fulfilling a game, many of which involve partnerships. Through careful and thorough planning, common mistakes can be avoided. However, possible delays can occur from circumstances beyond our immediate control. If such an issue is encountered, our team will adapt and no corners will be cut to course correct as needed. Our greatest obstacle is simply the funding capital to manufacture such an ambitious product of the highest quality capable. Your contribution makes this a reality!
