When everyone has circled around their board once the game ends, with four scoring opportunities at each corner and Life Energy are Points


The turn is divided into 5 steps:

Firstly, everyone picks a new tile from those presented to them

Secondly, you can either place or discard your selected tile

Thirdly, check to see if you have gained a Divine Entity

Fourthly, Activate Tiles and Divine Entity

Fifthly, Move one space clockwise and check for scoring and/or start from step 1 again

Step 1

Take a tile from those in front of you, the remaining tiles will be available for your neighbour on the next turn (Left neighbour on moon turns, right neighbour on star turns, designated by the space your counter is on)

Step 2

If you choose to discard your tile, you gain either a spore token to place on a tile which does not have one or you choose to gain 4 Crystals

If you choose to play your tile, you must be able to afford its cost in crystals, then you may place it anywhere on your board including spaces which already contain a tile to replace them. There are 3 main cost types: various numbers of crystals, specific spaces on your board, or free

Step 3

If, by placing the tile, you complete a line of matching symbols then you gain the corresponding divine entity regardless of who may already hold it

Note: As some tiles contain multiple symbols, it is possible to gain multiple Divine Entities at the same time

Step 4

If you gained a Divine Entity in step 3, its power activates. If you hold Divine Entities from prior turns, they do nothing.

Regardless of whether you gained a Divine Entity or not, you can activate all spaces in your current line in an order of your choosing

Spaces and Divine Entities can be activated in any order or not at all, e.g. you could activate space 2, activate Divine Entity, activate space 3, ignore space 1

Step 5

Move one space clockwise

If you reach a new line, return to step 1

If you reach a corner, a scoring phase occurs before moving again and returning to step 1

Scoring Phases

There are 4 scoring phases, one at each corner of the game

All Divine Entities, regardless of when you gained them, activate

All spaces with Spores on them activate in an order of your choosing

Similar to Step 4, Spaces & Divine Entities can be activated in whichever order and mixed together as you wish

In addition, water scores. Find out who has the least number of water, they score nothing. Everyone else scores in relation to the difference, e.g. if lowest has 1 water and you had 3, you have 2 water to score on the following chart

0 Difference = 0 Points

1 Difference = 1 Points

2 Difference = 3 Points

3 Difference = 6 Points

4 Difference = 10 Points

5+ Difference = 15 Points
