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.

A set-collecting game at heart, “Morels” is easy to pick up and play. The effects of the destroying angel can be a little confusing at first…luckily there’s a Q&A in the back of the manual. The artwork is eye-catching and the gameplay pretty fun. I like that the cards serve a dual purpose in that players can choose to either use it for VP or earn sticks, the latter of which can be used to expand upon your picking options in the future. It’s a little pricey at $25 (the current price on Amazon as of 11/6/15), but still worth picking up if you enjoy two player light-strategy games.
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.)
I think that's because we played as two players only. A lot of these games are much more entertaining if played by 3 or more.
Cards slides easily and great graphics. The cards are a little thinner than what I hoped for but understand that the deck has many cards so a tiny box might not hold all if each thickness is increased.
Btw. Wife won every single time might also be a reason that husband doesn't like it as much
