About

Looking for a new and exciting board game to play with family and friends? Planet Panda – Road to Bamboo is a fun strategic board game. The goal is simple, getting there not so much… 

Get to the last bamboo forest first to become the winner. But there are many dangers that lie ahead. Do you have the strength, agility, focus and speed to make it to the forest alive? And are you smart enough to outsmart your opponents? 

There are several tactics you can deploy. Do you love to sabotage your opponents? Or do you rather choose to form an alliance? Another option is flying solo. What's your choice?

Let's play to find out!

All the designs are ready, gameplay is thoroughly tested and fun is guaranteed. Everything is set to get production started. All we need is your support!

In a galaxy far far away there’s a planet not inhabited by mankind, but by pandas. We call it Planet Panda. The pandas have always lived in peace with each other and did what pandas do best; eat all day long. But then disaster struck; a devastating virus destroyed the most important thing in the lives of all pandas. Every bit of bamboo disappeared, leaving nothing but an empty, barren world. The pandas were close to despair. 

But then messages of hope appeared. One bamboo forest was left untouched by the virus. One source of food. The pandas had found a purpose again! But there’s only one problem; the road to the mysterious bamboo forest is long and treacherous. And even if the pandas can reach the forest, they don’t know if there’s enough food for everyone. Driven by both hunger and hope, they start the long and dangerous journey. Who will reach the forest first and who will conquer the tasty Bamboo?

Planet Panda - Road to Bamboo is a fun-to-play board game. There are four characters to choose from, each with their own unique set of characteristics. The characteristics consist of an unique blend of focus, agility, speed and strength. Choose your character wisely, because the mix of qualities determines your success during the game.

The playing field is built with four boards. The goal is simple: reach the end point first. The way to get there is always different, since the boards can be mixed randomly. Because of this flexibility you can also choose to use only two or three boards, to shorten play time. This set up also enables us to release additional boards in the future.

At the start of the game every player receives four cards: two luck cards and two fail cards. Luck cards can help you to finish first, fail cards will slow you down. There are 8 different luck cards and 9 different fail cards. 

Some examples of luck cards are:

  • Master Panda: Congratulations, you've mastered the ancient art of Pandaism. The ultimate state of focus. 
    You’re invulnerable to focus failure cards for the next 3 turns.
  • Black belt Panda: You’ve succesfully completed the “Ninja for Dummies” course.  
    +3 agility points .

Some examples of fail cards are:

  • Let’s play: Wow, what’s that? Looks like a slide. Ow joy!
    < 8 focus points? Skip a turn.
  • Wet fur: It’s raining, man! Your fur is getting wetter and heavier.
    < 5 speed points? For the next turn you’ll have to halve your number of steps.

During a turn the player throws the dice. He/she advances the thrown amount of steps. Every cell indicates an action to be made. After this action is completed, the player gets two cards: one luck card and one fail card. He/she is obliged to play one luck card and one fail card. Depending on the unique mix of characteristics of your character you'll have to perform another action giving by these cards. Some cards can also be passed to another player, to sabotage his/her progress. Luck and fail cards must be played wisely in order to win the game.

Planet Panda - Road to Bamboo can be played with 2 to 4 players and is a true family and friends game. Game time varies, since you can choose how many boards you want to use. The box contains the following items:

- 4 playing boards (transparant plastic for high durability)
- 2 wooden dice
- 4 pawns
- 4 character cards
- 50 fail cards (9 different items)
- 50 luck cards (8 different items)
- 1 rulesheet

The game is packed in a high quality cardboard box. 

We've received feedback on the card designs, so after a couple of changes we came up with these designs.
