Also new in from Asmodee is, Takenoko

In this game players take on the role of courtesans of the Nippon emperor who have been given the responsibility of caring for his Giant Panda by growing a bamboo plantation.

Their task is to farm parcels of land, irrigate them, and grow green, yellow or pink bamboo with the help of the Imperial gardener.  They will have to bear with the ravenous hunger of the sacred animal for the juicy and tender bamboo.

The player who grows the most bamboo, managing his land plots best while feeding the sacred Panda will win the game.

Calling all comic book superhero fans.  Adding to our deck-building games is Legendary: A Marvel Deck-Building Game from Upper Deck.  1-5 players can play cooperatively or competitively to determine the ultimate victor.
A Marvel Deck-Building Game

Upper Deck
Following is a game excerpt from Upper Deck:

…Besides popular Marvel superheroes like Spider-Man, Iron Man and Wolverine, the game also features a never-before-seen game engine. Each player starts with a deck of basic cards and then improves that deck throughout the game by recruiting Marvel’s greatest heroes in an effort to take down evil Marvel super-villains like Sabertooth and Dr. Octopus. Legendary has all the cool combos of a trading card game featuring 500+ cards…

The game actually fights back, with an evil mastermind like Magneto working on a dark scheme to crush all the players at once. Every time you play the game, a different evil mastermind will be pursuing a different dark scheme with different rules and it is the player’s job to thwart their evil efforts so good can prevail. Not only will players battle the evil masterminds, but also each other as there are several instances during game play where conflict arises within the team and it is up to the players to work through that.
