Leene’s Square – 1000 AD
If you want to gather more info, it’s up to you to visit the other houses near Mayor’s Manor. After that, head north to Leene’s Square. There is a lot of different things to do here, so we’ll go step by step. Remember that the currency to buy things here are Silver points that can be obtained through the mini-games in Leene’s Square
Upon entering Leene’s Square, go north before you do anything else and don’t talk to anyone. Find the girl that is running around Leene’s Bell, talk to her and take the pendant. Her name is Marle. Let her join you and return the pendant. Now you can enjoy the mini-games of Leene’s Square. Let’s take a look at them.
The first game is Ring the Bell, it is located in the first section of Leene’s Square (when you enter). The goal of the game is to time your shot so Crono can ring the bell. If you win, you receive one silver point.
Another game is Guess the Winner. This game is also located in the first section of the square. To begin playing, talk to the staff in front of the blue tent. The goal of the game is to guess the winner of the race. There is four racers, so 25% chances to win. However, you can get a hint on the result of the race by talking to the old man near the starting line before the race begins. If you guessed right, you will receive 20 silver points.
The third game is Norstein Bekkler’s Lab. The game is also located in the first section of Leene’s Square near a pink tent with a skull. You have 3 different bet you can make (10, 40, 80) and each bet has it’s own specific game. For a bet of 10 silver points, you’ll play the find the person mini-game where you have to locate a certain person among three dudes. Upon winning, you’ll get a Poyozo Doll that will be useful later in the game and that can serve as decoration in Crono’s house. If you bet 40, you’ll get the mimic mini-game, where you have to copy the movements of the clone. If you win, you’ll get a Clone of Crono who will be very important later in the game and that will also serve as decoration. For a bet of 80 Silver points, you’ll play the Push Monsters Mini-game. It is the toughest mini-game. The goal is to prevent Crono from falling into the flame while pushing the three coins to place the monsters in the door at the back.

Back to the story!
After doing all that (I know, it’s long, but you’ll see it’ll be worth it in the end !), go to the fountain in the center of the first section of Leene’s Square. Talk to the girl sitting at the fountain. After hearing that Lucca finished the invention, go north two times towards the third section. Let Marle buy her candy and don’t move or push a single button while she is doing that. I repeat, don’t push a single button and don’t move. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. After buying the candies, head north to the third part. After the speech on the invention, talk to Lucca. Step into the open pod. After you turn, talk to Marle. She will try the invention and.. boom, she get sucked into a portal. Lucca will help Crono. Let's find Marle! Take the portal and the business begins!
