Play the Reef Game!

Revive your reef by pinning corals, fish and other reef animals on a devastated reef background. You need a metallic clip board/chart where you fix the devastated reef background to; you may want to adjust its size to your board's size when printing it (download ready to print file, see below).

Then you need as many magnetic clamps as you want creatures in your reef (download ready to print reef creatures, see below). Cut out the corals and reef creatures and fix them on the clamps; we use double-sided adhesive tape instead of glue. Ready to go!

You may want to play the game just as it is, enhance the gaming level by introducing the different animal groups (corals, grazing fish, predatory fish, anemonies, and more; download ready to print list, see below) or do it as a 'blind man's buff' game :-)
