Everybody loves pandas. Built for the wild with incredible strength, cousin to the ferocious grizzly bear... however, pandas are a law onto themselves. Causing themselves harm and mischief everywhere they go. Even in captivity.

There is a new board game heading over to Kickstarter this month, entitled Pilfering Pandas, where players will take the role of a cheeky panda, who needs to stock up on supplies before making an escape from the zoo.

Pilfering Pandas is a co-op or competitive card game, where 1-4 players can take the plunge of the great escape. Using a rummy twist, players will need to plan their escape from the zoo. But, escaping with finesse is not going to be too easy for a panda - or group of them I might add! The zookeeper is watching, and there are a ton of supplies you need too. Players must attempt to not arouse suspicion by drafting certain actions to keep the Zoo Keeper's gaze averted.

It is not just pandas that are up to no good, the meerkats seem to want to help the master plan. Players will need to collect sets of cards and trade them over to the meerkats to earn some points. But players must keep an eye on the zoo-keeper and ensure they are using their card-drafting abilities wisely.

Myself, I am very much a fan of basic card games such as Rummy, but I tend to get bored after one or two playthroughs, as my usual playmates have a shorter attention span with the repeated nature of Rummy and Go Fish. However, this new take on set-collecting and the chance to go about the panda-monium (sorry, not sorry) solo, whilst working cooperatively or competitively to achieve the goal intended.

The Kickstarter is going to be going live at any time this month, so keep your eyes peeled for the panda-escaping board game. But if you would like to give it a go before committing to the pledges, the game is up on Tabletopia as we speak - so you can get a practice in before planning a mastermind monochromatic breakout.
