Sorry if this is a really basic question but why should we write the word 'much' in the following sentence?
'This was not as fun as that'
'This was not as much fun as that'
To me they both mean the same. Thank you for any help
Actually, fun is used as an adjective now.

I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
No i'm not sure
'This was not as fun as that' - this is also correct (as Barb_D pointed out).
And I think you're right, there's no difference in meaning.
Please note that I am not a teacher and can be wrong.

You should strictly reserve the use of 'fun' as an adj where informal tolerance is felt acceptable. That is my story and I am sticking to it.–adjective
Informal. of or pertaining to fun, esp. to social fun: a fun thing to do; really a fun person.
Informal. whimsical; flamboyant: The fashions this year are definitely on the fun side.
