In Kodama Forest, everyone works with their neighbors to cover as much of their shared player boards as possible. Every round, each player places one tile on the board to their right and one tile on the board to their left. Forests are penalized for every uncovered dirt section and the game ends when one board has covered all of ist "5" and "10" dirt spaces. Players score both of their shared boards, with the lowest combined score determining the winner.
Balancing cooperation and competition is the key to victory.
