    In Hieroglyphs, players take on the role of priests who are trying to gain the favor of the Pharaoh and the Gods. To do this, players must play cards (tablets) on to their player board. Cards are dual purposed. The top half have hieroglyph symbols that when placed in a specific order, will gain bonus points from objective cards or from one of the Gods. The bottom of the card activates straight away and will either give points based on the other cards on the player's board, hieroglyphic tokens that allow you replace card hieroglyphs or additional action cubes that allow you to gain favor with the Gods.

    On a player's turn they can do one of the following three actions:

    • Draft a card from the central selection to gain it to their hand.
    • Play a card from their hand on to the board.
    • Use one of the five God powers available in the game. God powers will allow you to either, manipulate your card draft, move or remove cards on your board, gain additional resources (tokens) or cause a little chaos to opponent boards.

    The player with the most points after a player triggers one of the four end conditions wins the game.
