Morels teaches in about 10 minutes, plays in 30 minutes, is for 2 players, and is designed for both adults and kids. You'll make fun and tactical decisions while playing, but it's relatively light and moves at a nice clip. While in truth it was designed it for adults, kids also love it. 10+ is the recommended age on the box, but we've seen sharp 6 year olds have a blast with it and 8 year olds play impressively well.
The game features 10 mushrooms in varying quantities, as well as some cards that perform various actions (butter, pans, baskets, moons, etc). The mushrooms are:
- Honey Fungus
- Tree Ear
- Lawyer's Wig
- Fairy Ring
- Hen of the Woods
and the to be avoided Destroying Angel :) Your strategy for which to collect evolves during each game and from game to game.
