Hi Steffi! If you want to play a new board game and you love adorable fat panda’s with belly buttons, you have to play this game!

You can watch TableTop play this game right here:

You build the land, grow bamboo, and make the panda eat the bamboo to complete missions for points. Whoever has the most points at the end wins! There’s handy player cards, bamboo shoots, and tiny mission cards. The panda token is the cutest thing you will ever see.

There is a collector’s edition version of this game that is super-sized, but there were only 400 released in the US. It’s running over $200 on amazon.

I settled for the collectible giant panda figurine. Him with his umbrella was just too adorable.

International Table Top Day!

Hi Steffi it’s Tuesday and last Saturday was International Table Top Day! We were so sad you guys could not come, so here’s some of what we did.

I attempted to make meeple shaped treats. (Meeple are the game pieces for Carcassonne in case you didn’t know.) I watched a Nerdy Nummies’ video in preparation and they sorta came out well..haha.

I made rice crispy treats and cut out stars and then re-shaped them to resemble meeple. I put them in the freezer for a few mins to solidify the shape.

Then I dipped some lollipop sticks in some melted candy and shove them up the meeple butts.

They would probably come out less lumpy if you had deeper bowls so you could completely submerge them. I had to kind of scoop it up over them.

TADAAA! They were super tasty at least.

Grayson bought a new game I’ve wanted for a long time..Ticket to Ride!!

We got into no less than 3 nerf gun wars. This is literally a fraction of the arsenal. We had about 60 guns.

We played lots of Mario Party 10 and blind tag and it was a great day of games. Til next year, PLAY MORE GAMES!
