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 saute them in butter. Feeling mercantile? Sell porcini to local aficionados for information that will help you find what you seek deep in the forest.

This version of the game comes with little frying pan and foraging stick tokens, not the cute actual mini versions that the original had, such as in Rahdo's youtube video on how to play this game. FYI, my husband went to the store and just bought some cheap golf teas and used a knife and dremel tool to whittle them into walking sticks, and we found some cheap little mini dollhouse frying pans to add to the set for extra cuteness.
Okay, yes, the price is daunting for a small card game. BUT, you get the enjoyment of a 2-player game that will work great in your gaming rotation if you like Agricola All Creatures Great and Small, Alhambra, Carcassonne, Jaipur, Dominion, Catan, Bazaar, Castles of Mad King Ludwig ... you will probably like this one. The artwork is lovely and the concept is simple: make groups of mushrooms in increments of 3 or more to earn points. My only complaint, and it's minor ... it's almost impossible to get all the morels because there are literally only 3 cards, and you have to have all three to make a group to earn points. You either have to shuffle really badly, or be extremely lucky. It has decent re-play value, although I wouldn't sit and play it 5 times. We play games regularly, and we will play this about once every week.
It's small and wuick enough that a game can last 15 minutes if you go quick. So if you want something to play with someone who is not into gaming, or with a kid, this is a good game to spend a few moments on. We liked this game so much we bought it and gave it to a friend and her husband. They too have problems finding 2-player friendly games that aren't scrabble or SkipBo.
Family game? Not too sure the kids would be too into this after a few rounds, it's pretty slow and doesn't have a lot of engaging elements to keep the kiddos excited... Overall, I'd recommend this for a mellow game to play when you're not feeling too competitive. Great couples game. Bonus, the artwork is absolutely beautiful.
After a handful of plays, everyone who has tried Morels with me has enjoyed it. Gameplay is elegant and flows well, and it allows for light to medium strategy and planning. The art is beautiful, too; the various settings for the different mushroom types, as well as the differences between day and night cards, shows great attention to detail and passion for the subject matter.
The only downside of gameplay is that it gets a little fiddly, continuously having to shift the cards on the table to the right as new ones are revealed. I can't think of a different mechanic that would work better (although I have heard of a alternative circular layout), but it does tend to bog down play ever so slightly. I also wish that the game came with the plastic foraging sticks and frying pans that were made available at some game conventions. For a game so steeped in theme, having those upgraded components in the baseline package would have put it over the top.
All in all, Morels is a tasty two-player game that brings a one-of-a-kind theme to the gaming table. I'm looking forward to seeing what's next from Two Lanterns Games. (Also, if you want a more in-depth look into the design process for Morels, I recommend checking out the Two Lanterns website. I enjoy the game's theme even more after reading about the love and research that went into it.)
