Fungi is a strategic card game for two players, uses two decks: a Day
Deck (84 cards) that includes ten different types of mushrooms as well
as baskets, cider, butter, pans, and moons, and a smaller Night Deck (8
cards) of mushrooms to be foraged by moonlight. Each mushroom card has
two values: one for selling and one for cooking. Selling two or more
like mushrooms grants foraging sticks that expand your options in the
forest (that is, the running tableau of eight face-up cards on the
table), enabling offensive or defensive plays that change with every
game played. Cooking sets of three or more like mushrooms – sizzling in
butter or cider if the set is large enough – earns points toward winning
the game. With poisonous mushrooms wielding their wrath and a hand-size
limit to manage, card selection is a tricky proposition at every turn.
Following each turn, one card from the forest moves into a decay pile
that is available for only a short time. The Day Deck then refills the
forest from the back, creating the effect of a walk in the woods in
which some strategic morsels are collected, some are passed by, and
others lay ahead.
