REEF was created by the remarkable Emerson Matsuuchi – author best known by the Century series. During a game of Reef, each player embodies a coral reef which, at each turn of the game, must carefully choose the colors and the arrangement in which to grow. The better his reef, the higher his score!
Reef is designed for players ages 8 and up. While it takes thousands of years for a coral reef to form, we estimate the duration of a game at around 30 to 45 minutes.
