Splendor is a game of chip-collecting and card development.
Splendor is a 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.
Simple premise and game engine. Surprising variety of tactics/strategies can be applied but very easy to pick up and play. My 7 year old had the principals mastered in about 1 or 2 rounds of play. Easy to play it nice and Basic with the whole family or apply more 'sabotage' to other players with a grown-up audience. Whole family found it very addictive!
Great game and very easy rules. Fun even just with two people, the best is with four.
