Fungi are a valuable resource in our forests. In Galicia, general knowledge about fungi is scarce, and thus it is a very important task to popularize them, especially as a means of conservation.

In Galicia, people have always had a complicated, love-hate relationship with fungi. Whenever fall comes around, it's impossible to not to notice these organisms sprouting all over fields and forests, fascinating for some and terrifying for others.

In the past, these beings have been called derogatory names by those who feared them, like "Pan de sapo" ("Toad's bread"). Our intention is to reclaim that moniker, and make something positive out of it, without forgetting about its past meaning.

"Pan de sapo" is a card game in which you will have to be the wittiest toad, in order to forage the most valuable mushrooms, while also facing other toads with the same intent.

The game consists of three short rounds, in which players will have to put eight mushrooms in their ecosystem, while trying to get as many points as possible.

Additionally, everyone will have to solve a secret mission, which will also mean extra points.

"Pan de sapo" includes 60 mushroom cards, 12 toad cards (equipped with special abilities) and 8 mission cards.

Monetary contributions will be used for funding the development and distribution of the "Pan de sapo" game, as well as shipping, campaign costs, and lastly the Verkami commissions.

If our financial target is reached, every patron will receive a series of mods in their basic game set at the end of the campaign.

Besides, they will be able to choose a language preference for the game (Galician, Spanish or English) both for the player's handbook and for the cards (see also: stretch goals).

Patrons will be able to choose between a wide array of rewards.

The simplest ones are the "Toad's bread flash" which will be available for 48h, and "Toad's bread", which will allow you to purchase the game for a cheaper price (shipping fees included).

If you don't live in Spain, you can choose the "Wandering Toad" option, so we can ship the game to your preferred location.

In case you can't have enough of our mushroom content, you can purchase "Toad's bread"'s big brother, "The mushroom game", a pairing card deck for little kids. You can also add "My first mycological guide", a lovely little book for learning about Galicia's mushrooms (only available in Galician).

If you liked our game's pet design, it is available for purchase as cute handle-less mugs, tote bags, prints and pins. Who knows, maybe we'll release more products if we reach our extra goals!

For those shops that would like to purchase a bigger number of products, we've got the "Merchant Toad" version, which includes 5 units of the game, and will also grant your store's logo a place in our campaign.

Moreover, just by being a patron, you will have the option to choose a language for your game, between Galician, Spanish and English for now. Adding languages upon request from patrons will be an option too.

If everything goes according to plan, once our campaign is complete, we'll take the following steps:

November 2021 - January 2022: manufacturing of the games and products, and developments of the special rewards.

January - March 2022 - January 2022: packages ready for shipment, postal delivery to patrons.

The greatest rewards: in case that we reach our financial target, a wide array of presents will be unlocked for all patrons who chose to select the "Extra goals" options. Some of these will be known from the start of the campaign, and some will be revealed further down the way.

Target reached at 125%: player's board for up to 5 players, and individual point counters.

Target reached at 150%: bigger box to be able to fit the board inside.

Target reached at 175%: 6th player unlocked (including board and counter), additional cards for the deck.

These extras are exclusive to our crowdfunding campaign!!

We are a group of Galician biologists with a passion for environmental education. Our work niche involves both Botany and Micology. Through our work, we realized the importance of divulging and making people aware of the intrinsic value of the natural resources present around us.

MycoGalicia Plantae was born out of these concerns, in the Micology lab of the University of Vigo, where we work upholding our values through education, research and mycological and botanical advisory.

Each and everyone of us takes up different tasks, according to our abilities: Paula Estévez (designer), María Cabaleiro (admin), Hugo Fernández (communication manager), Marisa Castro (scientific advisor) and Andrés Cordeiro (computer specialist). Even though our duties differ, we are all bound by our love for nature and our goal to protect the natural and rural environment.
