Morris is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 2021 by Dee Cooke. It was an entry in PunyJam #2 where it won 1st place.

In this small game, you stayed too long in this Pokey End pub, and now the village square outside is filled with Morris dancers! You're terrified of Morris dancers! How will you escape? (Two ways to win.)

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the game.

SPOILERS AHEAD. Reading a walkthrough prematurely can sometimes diminish one's enjoyment of an interactive fiction game. Please make an honest effort to play the game before reading this walkthrough.
