The colors (red, green, blue, pink, black) of the various lines on the cards indicate which lines go together.
The cards with alphabets and lines encrypt sets of letters.
The solution card produces a set of letters that leads to the final code, but you'll need the hint to understand it.
The four alphabet cards with bright colored lines each encode one word of the four-word hint.
You can use the symbols around the edges of the two cards with words (The Hint and The Solution) to find the right letters on the alphabet cards. Unscramble those letters to make words. It's easiest to start with the alphabet card with the fewest lines. If you place the ruler symbol correctly, it points to the letters F and O which make the word 'OF'
Each letter in the solution represents a number, but in an unusual way.
The symbols around the edges of the word cards are rulers, of a sort. Match the dots on them to the dots on the alphabet cards, and the triangles will point to letters.
The four hint word letters are TSRIF, TTRLEE, OF, and USRNMEB. Unscramble them to get the hint words.
The hint is 'FIRST LETTER OF NUMBERS,' which is what the solution letters are. The solution letters are NZOE, in order from 1-4 as marked. That corresponds to nine, zero, one, eight.
