What is Reef about?

Reef is an abstract game themed around trying to build a reef to house marine life. To build the reef, players play cards and place reef bits to complete patterns and score points. The goal is to score the most points at the end of the game.

During the game turn, players take a card from the display or deck and add it to their hand or play a card from their hand to grow their reef or complete a pattern.

Depending on where the player takes the card, they will either spend or earn point tokens.

Players can then choose to play a card and take the coral pieces associate with it and place them on their player board to score the patterns for that card. Points are scored for patterns that appear on their reef. 

The game ends when one color of coral runs ou and scores are tallied.
