Product Description

Splendor is a fast-paced and addictive game of chip-collecting and card development. Players are merchants of the Renaissance trying to buy gem mines, means of transportation, shops — all in order to acquire the most prestige points. If you're wealthy enough, you might even receive a visit from a noble at some point, which of course will further increase your prestige.

On your turn, you may (1) collect chips (gems), or (2) buy and build a card, or (3) reserve one card. If you collect chips, you take either three different kinds of chips or two chips of the same kind. If you buy a card, you pay its price in chips and add it to your playing area. To reserve a card — in order to make sure you get it, or, why not, your opponents don't get it — you place it in front of you face down for later building; this costs you a round, but you also get gold in the form of a joker chip, which you can use as any gem.

All of the cards you buy increase your wealth as they give you a permanent gem bonus for later buys; some of the cards also give you prestige points. In order to win the game, you must reach 15 prestige points before your opponents do.

Great fun for 2+
November 28, 2016

My wife and I are always on the lookout for games that play well with two. Splendor definitely fits that category. We tend to get in a rut playing ticket to ride games, so this is a very nice change of pace for us. The replay value is excellent as there are so many cards, you won't have a problem there. We also enjoy playing this with other couples as it tends to be pretty easy to learn and can be a good introduction into strategy games.

The cards are very good quality as are the chips. I would probably prefer a board to set up pieces, but it really isn't necessary.

All in all one of our favorites, whether playing with 2 or more.

Best New Game of 2014!
November 03, 2014

I love this game for a few reasons. First, it's very easy to learn and my seven year old son and I play regularly. Second, it's just as good to play with two player or three or four. I bet it's only a matter of time until the come up with an expansion that allows you to play with five or six players. Third, it's a quick game -- last about 30 minutes - so games go quickly. Lastly, it's a blast to play. It's fun to pick a strategy and stick with it. Lots of options to play. Great game for all ages!
