2017 felt like the year of the abstract game. So popular that titles such as Azul, Sagrada and Santorini were sold out world wide. Reef, the latest in these beautiful abstract games, is expected at our shores in August.
In Reef, each player starts by taking an empty reef board. On your turn you can do two things, either take a card from those available or play a card from your hand.
When you play a card simply resolve the top and then bottom section of the card. The top of the card tells you which coral pieces to take and place them on your reef board. They can be placed anywhere and even stacked. The bottom of the card indicates how you will score points. Scoring is done by matching the coral patterns on the card to those placed on your player board.
Reef is a 2-4 player game and plays in 30-40 minutes.
