"Mori" is the Latin word for death and the Japanese word for forest. Both of these interpretations are represented in this artwork of this card game.
This is a game about growth and decay - the circle of life, so to speak.
Trick-taking … with dice! How does that even work? If you think about it, dice are just a color and a number, just like a card in your hand, but in Mori the dice break all the rules.
Mori is full of “tricky” decisions, as players manipulate their hand of cards by playing tricks and using the dice to find their way to the best possible score.
