Great way to learn your mushrooms

My partner, I and 11 year old son, all love this game. Since my partner is Czech, she already knows a lot about mushrooms and she likes to collect her favourite Bolets. My son and I enjoy the challenge of choosing what to collect and what to let rot (how does a frying pan rot? go rusty I suppose!). The artwork is lovely. This is one of the most played games in my collection. My one complaint is that in this newer version they use Latin names rather than the common names (as they did in the earlier version called Morels).

It is a great 2 player game

An excellent 2 player game if you tweak the rules slightly

After tweaking the rules so that instead of only have one move per player-turn, each player has 2 moves in their turn, this game is a small gem. Really enjoyable, really affordable, and easily transportable.

I've given it 5 stars based on the tweaked-rules we play with. (I wouldn't score it so high if we used the original rules.)

Great set collection game. Interesting choices and planning. Rules a vague in places though.

Fun 2 players game

A very nice and smart 2 players game. It also has beautiful card drawings.

However, I agree with Darren: sliding all the cards after every move is not ideal and the alternative layout is confusing.

OVERVIEW

The woods are old-growth, dappled with sunlight. Delicious mushrooms beckon from every grove and hollow. Morels may be the most sought-after in these woods, but there are many tasty and valuable varieties awaiting the savvy collector. Bring a basket if you think it's your lucky day. Forage at night and you will be all alone when you stumble upon a bonanza. If you're hungry, put a pan on the fire and bask in the aroma of chanterelles as you sauté them in butter. Feeling mercantile? Sell porcini to local aficionados for information that will help you find what you seek deep in the forest.

Fungi, a strategic card game for two players, uses two decks: a Day Deck (84 cards) that includes ten different types of mushrooms as well as baskets, cider, butter, pans, and moons; and a smaller Night Deck (8 cards) of mushrooms to be foraged by moonlight. Each mushroom card has two values: one for selling and one for cooking. Selling two or more like mushrooms grants foraging sticks that expand your options in the forest (that is, the running tableau of eight face-up cards on the table), enabling offensive or defensive plays that change with every game played. Cooking sets of three or more like mushrooms – sizzling in butter or cider if the set is large enough – earns points toward winning the game. With poisonous mushrooms wielding their wrath and a hand-size limit to manage, card selection is a tricky proposition at every turn.

Following each turn, one card from the forest moves into a decay pile that is available for only a short time. The Day Deck then refills the forest from the back, creating the effect of a walk in the woods in which some strategic morsels are collected, some are passed by, and others lay ahead.
