Rules for playing the “Magic Porthole Coral Reef Memory” game on line alone or with your family and friends. Click on the cards to see descriptions on the backs and surprise videos.

Players take turns attempting to identify the reef creature and to provide additional facts.
Each back has facts such as the name of reef creature and location.
If you answer correctly, you win the card plus a point for every fact.
If you are challenged, the challenger loses a point for every unsuccessful challenge but wins the points if correct.
