Game's details

Dive into Splendor and journey to the Renaissance era as a merchant competing for supremacy against your rivals.

Strive to establish the best trade routes and acquire the most gems in this exciting card development game, created for 2-4 players age 10 years and older. If you’re successful enough in your merchant ventures, you may even gain the attention of the Nobles, which in turn increases your status.

The goal of this strategy-driven card development game is to be the first merchant to earn 15 victory points. Players earn points through a mix of buying cards with gems of varying colours and values, and also by earning the attention of the Nobility. Players take turns choosing whether to take gems (don’t forget the colour of the gems matters as well), reserve a card to get a gold token, or to buy a card from the table. Spend your gems wisely to acquire the cards you’ll need, to buy even more important development cards in the future. You’re all essentially working to set up your engines, in order to create your own well-oiled merchant trade systems that will earn you 15 victory points the fastest.

Perhaps the most important aspect to winning in the Splendor board game is planning ahead. To be a successful Renaissance merchant, you need to consider, for example, which resource cards you’ll need in the future, whom among the Nobility you should work toward, and even which opponents you can hinder by blocking their next move. Splendor is a game of open information, meaning everyone can see what the other players are doing at all times. You’ll be able to spot how many game pieces your rivals have and perhaps be able to predict what they’re aiming to do. The rules of the Splendor game are very easy to learn, allowing new players to be up and running with game play in as little as five minutes.

The game flows smoothly, and plays in an average of 30 minutes. Both kids and grown-ups will have fun competing to collect the most precious gems and proving their strategy skills. With its imaginative and family-friendly theme, the Splendor board game is a great option for family game night, creating an exciting backdrop for your time spent together.
