On the new god cards, the requirement for building obelisks talks about "rounding up" and "rounding down" stones. I wasn't sure how to round these numbers, but here are my guesses. The numbers indicate the required total stones to build 1/2/3 obelisks (not that I can see anyone building 3 in a turn):

Thoth (4, rounded up): 1/5/9
Anubis/Khnum (4, rounded down): 4/8/12
Sobek (6, rounded up): 1/7/13

I based it on modulus division, with any remainder rounding up for Thoth/Sobek. How far off am I?

Also, on Abubis' card, there's an awkward phrase, "each time a card is moved to and/or from a player's hand to the discard pile." Is the "to and/or" an artifact from the previous god card's wording and can be ignored?

Your rounding looks right.

As for to and/or from, I would tend to think that sentence means "moved between a player's hand and the discard pile," I.e. discarding cards or drawing cards from the discard. But I could be wrong. There is definitely a typo in there.

Yes, it seems quite strong to be able to grab two stones for using that ability...
