After the 1000th rating, thought we'd celebrate by jumping into the pool. As a small studio, we are so incredibly thankful for all of the well-wishes, advice, and support that have made Morels a project that has glowed with fun from the very start. We're thrilled that there are folks enjoying the game as much as we do. You have our sincere wishes for many an intriguing foray and for engaging gaming across your collection!

Really enjoying this one! It's a creative blend of different elements that we love: easy rules with many difficult and challenging tactical decisions. Plus it's one of the most attractive games we have seen in a long time.

Rating likely to go up after more plays. In our last game, my wife edged me 22-21. Loved it!

Purchased from Two Lanterns and are waiting for hand-crafted foraging sticks.

UPDATE: Raised from 9 to 10. This is one amazing game. It has everything we could possibly want from a 2-P game and is it ever FUN!

How often do you get a game that is deliciously tense but enjoyable, has been precisely designed so everything fits together and compels you to play your very best if you expect to win? Plus it was thoroughly play tested before it went to print and the rule book has answered every question we have had.

A brilliant effort by a first-time designer who also is active on BGG. Buy it, enjoy it then buy some for your friends. It will be interesting to see what other games Brent Povis designs for us!

What A Find!!!! Fun, Fresh, Beautiful!! 2 player set-collection hand-management card game about mushroom foraging in the forest. This'll be a timeless keeper for me and my wife. BTW, she kicks my butt often at this game.

Gameplay can get ruthless when you start collecting 'shrooms the other player is looking for! Timing is key; do you forage, do you sell one of your collections, or do you cook it up for points? Quality artwork! Physically and play-wise, Morels is of Kosmos caliber. Rulebook is very satisfying.

Reminds me a little of Monopoly Deal and Jaipus, BUT CERTAINLY STANDS OUT ON IT'S OWN.

First play. Excellent game. I needed to change the way the "conveyor belt" system works. It was very annoying moving cards all the time. There's an excellent discussion of this here on BGG. Use the circle/square method instead. It's better and smoother!

Beautiful artwork and smooth gameplay. I made my own parts for it as well. Should be designing some hikers for the circle/square system soon.

This is the first small 2-player game in my 25+ years of gaming that I would rate at a 10/10. It's easy to pick up and play but the tactics can be quite subtle and pleasingly tense.

If you like a tactical game with wonderful art, & a novel theme, that plays in under 30 minutes, this is a sure-fire hit. It's got set-collection, variable costs to balance, important decisions to make every turn, subtle but meaningful interaction between players, and always leaves you wanting to do more than you can on any turn. Fun and rewarding play from a talented indy designer. Enjoy.

Brent Povis has been a great communicator with the distribution of the game, and even a suggestion for an alternate rule.

Game 1 Rachel 40 Rob 39
Game 2 Rob 36 Rachel 30 (Rachel with the "Morels" meld)
Game 3 Rachel 36 Rob 33 (Rachel with "Morels")

There's something captivating, for me, about this theme: the casual atmosphere of a hike in the woods, foraging ahead with your walking stick and collecting mushrooms in your wicker baskets; the idea of cooking those same mushrooms out in the woods using a heavy pan set over a small, smoking bonfire with some butter or cider, or both; it's just pleasant. But, on top of that, there are meaningful and occasionally quite tough decisions to be made, timing to be planned for, and exquisite tension in the wait to see whether your opponent will take that one card you really don't want them to have. I think it's a wonderful, dare I say delectable, game.

This is one of my wife's favorite games and it is probably my favorite 2p card game to play with her.
I was also lucky enough to get the actual frying pans and wooden sticks, they look awesome.

- Excellent cafe game, this game has a small footprint.
- Great theme and beautiful artwork; I especially appreciate the different art found on the night time cards.
- May be the best had management game I own, the limit on hand size combined with that fact that you can not just discard cards creates a nice amount of tension in the game.
- Brent (the designer) is extremely helpful and supports the people that play his game.
I have had two separate issues and he has generously sent me replacement cards!

This game is easy to teach and quick to play, with beautiful art and meaningful decisions. It's affordable and very portable. The theme is calming, and it also doesn't have any direct attacks against the opponent, which is great. This is currently my favorite game, and I would play it a lot more if I had more opportunities to be in a 2-player-only situation.

This is a fantastic two player game that is fast paced and addicting. My boyfriend and I have been playing it almost everyday for the last seven months. Want proof? Oh, I have proof, my friends. We have been recording our scores for every game, usually playing a three-game series, so we can claim a true victory at the end. The two key elements that I love about this game are a) it has the perfect balance between strategy and luck and b) one of the reasons we like to play so much is because there are a vast number of strategies you can use, which means every game has a different outcome, usually resulting in one of us exclaiming, "I can't believe you did that! Rematch!" Game ensues...

Brilliant design. Relaxing, fresh and beautiful to look at. Mechanics are unlike any other two player game I own. If you game with two - do not pass this one by.

it's hard to explain what makes this game so fun for us. The game play is simplistic (it's set collection in its simplest form). The art is good. And the theme is ok. But we love playing this as much as any strategic two-players game like say 51st State. It must be that it somehow manages to be greater than the sum of its parts.

Picking mushrooms was a newly found hobby before I even saw this game, so the theme really appeals to me. I love how simple it is yet challenging too. Art is great. The game play really makes you feel like you're out there picking and cooking mushrooms- perfect for when you're waiting for the really hunting season to begin!
