Legendary Forests is a multiplayer world-building game based on solitaire mechanics. Players are responsible for the creation of their forest, which they expand by placing tiles. Each player has the same tileset and begins with the same starting tile. Then, on each turn, a 'Leader' draws a tile, calls out its number and every player places their corresponding tile onto their landscape.
Each tile is made up of a combination of four colours, and tiles must have matching adjacent colours to be placed. If a Leader draws a red numbered card, players must also select a tree to place. Trees appear in three colours and must be placed on a matching landscape.
Legendary Forests is a reworking of Toshiki Sato's 2017 hit game 8Bit MockUp (8ビットモックアップ), 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 the new theme.
