In Living Forest, you play as a nature spirit trying to save the forest and its Sacred Tree from Onibi's flames. In each turn, you will get new cards with forest defenders who will help you achieve your goal. This can be done in three ways: by planting 12 protective trees, collecting 12 sacred flowers to awaken the great forest guardian Sanki, or extinguishing 12 flames to banish the Onibi forever.
