2016's been about as strange a year as I care to remember so far. The news is a constant mix of the unexpected and the unpleasant. Yesterday's events in Nice were both of those and I wanted to play a French game as some slight indication of SGOYT sympathy, support and solidarity.

I managed to cook the morels with some cider (17 points)*, 4 chanterelles with the night card (24 points) and three chicken of the woods, with the night card and some butter (18 points). *As every chef knows, you can't cook morels with cider so a total of 54 - a higher number than I expected if I'm honest.

***

When I posted about this game last month I promised to have a look at the apparently fiddly solo rules available on BGG. I've had a quick look and I agree, they are a bit fiddly and I'll probably keep playing the same way. For those interested, here's my variant:

I adopt an automa approach that is designed to do little more than mimic the principle action of an opponent - taking cards. To do this, I set up the game as normal, with the 'feet' card above the seventh card in the row. I play first. During the automa's first turn, the feet move one space to the right, over the eighth card, and takes it. On its next turn, the feet move one space to the left, over the seventh card, and takes it. Through the rest of the game, the automa does exactly the same thing - the feet move one space to the left or right, over the seventh or eighth card, and takes it.

When the automa takes a card, it goes straight into the discard pile. If it takes the seventh card in the line, the eighth one goes into the decay pile, as normal.

#8 - Morels

If you would have asked me a year ago, I would have named this game quite a bit higher in a list like this. I still really enjoy the game as the cards are cute, it's easy to learn, setup, and doesn't take very long to play. Also, it introduced us to the phrase, "honey fungus", in our lexicon.

I have had this sitting on my shelf for over 2 years now and this last week we finally got it played! A really great game. My wife (who is not a gamer, but will play certain games with me) really loved this one. The theme, the cute art, and most of all, the great gameplay had her asking for it several times throughout the weekend. The game moves fast, but can be a little fiddly. Overall a wonderful little game - perfect for couples.

Another game that has fallen by the wayside. A very nice set collection game with great art, a welcoming theme and just enough bit to make it interesting. Our one quibble is the row of cards for the forest but we will now play with the official appendix on the circular forest.

Got another game of this in on Monday evening with the new way of laying out the forest according to the appendix I found from Mr Povis. Have to say it is a much better way to layout the forest it is not as frustrating as the original, slide every card to the left way. Will not make the change mentioned in the appendix with regards to the Destroying Angel cards. I won 42 - 39

I managed to get my girlfriend to play a couple of games with me last night, on the day that she worked out that we've now been together for eight years. Which I think makes the relationship longer than the one I had with my wife. Anyway, I finally get to contribute to this list!

First up was Fungi, the less fun name for Morels, which I picked up while working on the Pegasus Spiele stand at the recent UKGE. It's a simple but fun set collection game with one or two ambiguities in the rule book. After our first game, I asked her if she wanted to play it again or play something else.

'I've just learned how to play this, I don't want to play something else now.'

Not high praise, but I see it as a positive that she was willing to play another game straight away.

thumbsup Simple concept that my other half managed to pick up through one game.
thumbsup Great theme.
thumbsup Nice art.
thumbsdown Some ambiguities in the rules (we debated, for example, whether the multiplication night mushroom cards applied to the set or to the card - I argued for the set and won; we then had to debate whether that included bonus cards like butter, she argued against and won).

Not sure why, but the idea for an automa-based solo variant of this game suddenly popped into my head last night, so I decided to give it a go.

I managed to grab the last set of Morels with my final turn, which is always satisfying, which led to a final score of 52. I'm pretty happy with that. I think it's a respectable score and it compares favourably with what I get playing with my girlfriend. I actually had a potential score of another 8 points sat in my hand at the end of the game that I couldn't lay through lack of pans - the automa managed to do a great job of denying me both the pans and the night mushrooms (I only managed to pick up 2 all game).


My display and hand at the end of the game.

Overall, I think this worked pretty well and I'll probably give it another go next time I want a quick and light solitaire card game. It'll probably take a few games to figure out what a good or bad score is when playing solo.

IN COLLECTION

Fungi (Morels) is a set collection and hand management card game. The game tasks you with looking for mushrooms in the forest, cooking them, and eating them for victory points. That should be weird enough.

---
(05/30/16)
Morels is our go-to two-player game. It doesn't have the straightforward aggression of Star Realms or the potential AP of Patchwork, so it works for us. Judith and I have been playing this since 2014.

Judith doesn't like the new version (Fungi). I like it because it's German. This is the second half of the Secret Santa god guess.

(Brand New, January 2016)
