The following rules were printed on ancient clay tablets unearthed in Sabrabulko in the 1780s. In an astounding coincidence the words seem to describe, in english, a game similar to Hungry Hungry Hippos. In fact they are written in a long forgotten cultic language. In that language every word has a vastly different meaning and the grammar is not like any contemporary language. The instructions are rife with subtext and implications that would have been known to initiates of the cult, but have since been lost to time. How was that ancient game played? We will never know.
