The European Renaissance opened up more ways of becoming rich than the continent had ever known before. Global trade routes became a reality. Nobles, once content with large castles and fur robes, now seek dark sapphires and glittering diamonds.
Experience the riches of this era in Splendor, a fast, elegant, and intuitive game in which players vie for control of gem mines, trade routes, and storefronts to master the gem trade and attract the attention of nobles. Become the most influential and rich merchant at the jewelry market by optimizing your trading strategy. In this competitive world your strategy must be flawless if you intend to win, by collecting the most prestige points!
Splendor’s elegantly simple gameplay is supported by plentiful historic detail and beautiful components. Players begin the game by collecting gem tokens. If you manage to produce just the right jewels, a noble patron, perhaps even King Henry VIII or Queen Isabella of Spain, will take you under their wing.
With simple rules and streamlined set collection mechanics, Splendor is an excellent game for younger or less experienced gamers. A simple but unique economy makes Splendor easy to learn, but offers a challenging puzzle every time.
