In Deus, players work to develop their own civilizations in a
shared environment. Each player starts the game with five building
cards, and on a turn a player either uses one of these cards to
construct a building or discard one or more cards to make an offering to
a god. Cards come in six colors: red for military, green for resource
production, blue for trade, brown for scoring, purple for temples, and
yellow for a variety of effects.
When you construct a building, you build it in the appropriate location
on the modular game board — which is sized based on the number of
players with the hexagonal tiles composed of seven landscape "circles" —
then you place the card in your personal tableau in the appropriate
stack of colored cards and activate the power of all of those cards
already in your tableau, starting with the card at the bottom of the
When you make an offering, you discard cards, then receive the help of a
god associated with one of the cards that you discarded, with the number
of cards determining the strength of the associated action. You then
refill your hand to five cards.
The game ends either when all the barbarian villages on the game board
have been surrounded and attacked or when all the temples have been
constructed. Whoever has the most points wins.
