Bamboo Harvest is a game of geometry and resource management, played with two standard decks of cards and a few tokens.

Your goal is to build a path across the bamboo forest, using wood gathered from the forest itself. You begin with two spaces, and can harvest from nearby spaces. With enough harvested bamboo—and the right claim on the land—you can build another spot elsewhere in the forest. You decide whether to build along your most direct route across the forest or where there is the most bamboo to harvest. Swap parts of the forest itself to improve your future harvest, diminish an opponent's, or move a card into a path to be built upon later.
