The once-prosperous Panda Lands have been overrun by a merciless ninja brotherhood! Anyone that travels the roadways is at risk of being attacked by these bandits. Now, the time has come for the Panda Clans to reclaim and rebuild their once-magnificent cities! Which Clan will be most influential in the rebuilding efforts and win the Emperor`s favor in Way of the Panda?
In Way of the Panda, players take on the role of the leader of one of the four Panda Clans. Using their Monk, Warrior, and Governor, they will move around the map board, defeating ninjas as they go. When the roadways around a city have been cleared of threats, players can start to construct great buildings. Defeating ninjas and erecting buildings will bring prestige to their Clan. The player with the most prestige at the end of the game takes their place at the right hand of the Emperor.
