Create a beautiful zen garden with friends or family. Craft a unique landscape using tiles representing meadows, mountains, forests, and water. Illuminate it all with magical lanterns that let you transform tiles and perfect patterns. Win by being first to create your secret pattern twice!
Zen Garden is an artful struggle and two games in one. The basic game is a fast and simple tile-matching game in which you attempt to form patterns on the board before your fellow players can do the same. The first player to form her signature pattern on the board twice without wilds and with her special symbol scores maximum points.
Players seeking more of a challenge can compete in "Rock Garden", in which players receive twelve "rock" cubes and play them on sets of tiles matching their pattern tiles. Place all of your rocks first to win.
