In the game Reef, players take on the role of the reef itself, alternating turns in which they carefully select the colors and patterns in which to grow and expand — the more beautiful the reef, the more points they score!

Reef is suited for players aged 8 and up. While it could take thousands of years for a coral reef to grow, a game of Reef should take only 30-45 minutes.

Customer Reviews

A must have game!

If you’re into abstract strategy games like Santorini or Azul, you simply have to add this to your collection.

Awesome simple to learn abstract game. Quick play time, easy to set up and perfect for players who are not into deep complex games, but, this does allow for a fairly good amount/layer of strategy where you can build up your combos for scoring points. My only only complaint is... There is so much space in the box, yet they didn't make the slots wide enough for the player boards to sit nicely in... Now it hovers on top of the other components when you pack away - my OCD cringes every time I think about it!! But that's silly minor... Enjoy. Totally worthwhile buy
