This is Takenoko. It is a family game that has the cutest miniatures I’ve ever seen on any board game. If you have kids or prefer really light games you should check this out!

The whole premise to the game is that you are trying to achieve one of three kinds of objectives. Either you are using the gardener to grow specific colors of bamboo, or you are using the panda to eat bamboo, or you are flipping colored tiles to make specific shapes. The variety in ways to score makes it just deep enough for an adult to enjoy.
