Code Omega is a speed puzzle solving game. Players each have a set of colored strips, with each strip containing a couple black bars across them, with the goal of solving puzzles by aligning the black bars on those strips.
At the beginning of each round, each player takes a board which limits the placement of strips. The board also shows eight groupings of strips that may be used for the round (3 strips for a beginner game, and 4 strips for the advanced game). A player then rolls an 8 sided die which dictates which grouping must be used for the round, and then players race to fit the strips onto their boards in a way that creates a continuous black bar across all of them by ordering and lining the strips up properly.
The first player to finish gets to roll 4 dice, the results of which allow the player to advance down a scoring track. The second player to finish gets to roll 3 dice, and all other players who complete the puzzle in the time limit get to roll 2 dice. So, finishing early means a better chance to advance further on the score track, but does not guarantee victory due to the luck element.
Once a player advances to the end of the score track, the game is complete and that player wins!
