Law of Forest is a board game designed in Hong Kong, introducing to players different local creatures in Hong Kong, their habitats and how we, human, directly or indirectly affect their living.

Infamously known as a concrete jungle, Hong Kong is a lot more than mere concrete as its reputation suggests. With about 70% of its 1,100 sq. km area being vegetated, Hong Kong actually has more green than grey. Amongst the greenery are over 3,300 species of vascular plants, within which are:

  • more than 60 species of mammals; 
  • more than 500 species of birds; 
  • around 80 species of reptiles; 
  • some 20 species of amphibians; and
  • tens of thousands of different invertebrate species. 

These animals strive to survive every day. To them, Hong Kong is a dangerous place. To survive, they will need to be able to find food and suitable habitats, avoid predation, out-compete other competitors and be able to adapt to or be lucky enough to avoid a myriad of human disturbances. 

 If you are now part of this community, will you be able to master the Law of the Forest and survive in this harsh environment?

《森林的法則》是一副於香港設計的桌上遊戲。透過此桌戲,玩家將可認識到香港不同的本地物種、其生境、以及人類如何直接或間接地影響牠們的生活。  

香港雖被謔為石屎森林,但這形容與事實相符嗎?實際上,在香港 1,100 平 方公里的土地中,其中四成為郊野公園,共七成土地被植被覆蓋,當中擁有不同的生境,如草地、灌木林、次生林等等。多樣的生境孕育著豐富的生物多樣性,包括超過 3,300 種維管束植物、約 60 種哺乳類、超過 500 種鳥類 、約 80 種爬行類、20 多種兩棲類、以及數以萬計的無脊椎動物。

在這弱肉強食的大自然生存法則下,這些動物每天也在掙扎求存。對牠們來 說,香港是一個危險的世界!要生存,牠們必須經過重重考驗:尋找食物和棲息地、躲避敵人、與其他動物競爭、逃避來自人類的種種威脅…… 

如果你是這生態系統的一份子,你又能否掌握森林的法則,在這殘酷的世界成功生存下來?

Risks and challenges

It is our first time to launch a kickstarter project. Although we already have all of our designs and quotation ready, we still expect some uncertainties after the launch. We will try our best to make the project comes true.

Being driven by our affection in Hong Kong nature, we are not aiming high at profits so our fund raising goal is comparatively low. We want to prove to the public that Hong Kongers care about not only money, but also what give birth to us. Law of the Forest is a little gift to our nature, no matter what the result of our fund raising project is, we hope to raise some noise among Hong Kong to pay more attention to our environment.

這次是我們第一次於kickstarter眾籌。雖然我們已經完成設計、報價等各方面的工作,但我們仍然要為未知之數作好準備,務求令此項計劃順利進行。

我們熱愛香港的自然。比起金錢上的得益,我們更注重計劃背後的意義,因此,我們眾籌的目標金額相對較低。我們相信,香港人亦同樣關心我們的大自然。我們希望透過<森林的法則>為香港生態出一分力,不論是次眾籌成功與否,都能喚起香港對生態的關注。請大家多多支持!
