Legendary Forests is a reworking of Toshiki Sato's 2017 hit game 8Bit MockUp, which won Best Game at Tokyo Game Market 2017. Although the game has been relabelled, the mechanic will remain the same. Instead, all changes will be purely aesthetic and linguistic to fit this new theme (for example, all 'monuments' are now 'trees').
In Legendary Forests, scoring occurs based on the formation of circles through tile placement. The edge of each tile has a crescent shape that, when put together with another tile, form complete circles (called 'cookies' in 8Bit MockUp). After all twenty tiles have been placed by each player, scoring is completed based on the positioning of the trees in relation to completed circles, and the player with the most points wins!
