Enter the Panda
this is the game that started it all.
Built around 4 players, combining strategy, partner-play & chance - PANDA is the basis of revered eastern games such as Tai Pan & Zheng Fen & many Western games such as Poker, Euchre & Bridge. Travelling continents, languages and time - the time is now to play the ultimate card game.
how to Play
stirringly complex, simply addictive
PANDA does not pride itself in being a complicated game, but one that has so much depth and so much to learn that no one can truly call themselves a master.
Each player in turn must play a higher card (or combination of cards) than the previous player. A player who cannot or does not wish to beat the previous play can pass.
Starting with single-card, double-card and triple-card gameplay through to full-houses, straights and the deadly four-of-a-kind, the players who use their arsenal wisely are often the most victorious.
How to win
Commonly played until a pair reaches 1000 points - the aim is to accumulate points during each round by collecting point-worthy cards. However this is compounded by the strategic advantage of finishing first.
Finally - the ultimate declaration. Panda.
A tale of deception, conquest and honour.
Rumoured to pre-date the earliest dynasty's of Japan and the East - this story not only redefines our misconception of a great creature, but puts into context ancient rivalry and the ultimate consequences of failure.
After the theft of the Panda, the 4 ruling families were embarrassed and relegated from the royal ruling class. Marginalised from direct rule over the kingdom but still within the shogunate - tantalizingly close to power because of their wealth and perceived loyalty.
