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 ityou 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.

Fantastic game

We bought a number of games (different styles and number is players) but Splendor has been the one my wife and I have played the most.

Great game, lots of strategy and tactics but also very simple to teach and play. Highly recommend. I can only imagine it gets better as you wrap your head around it more, and increasing the player count would certainly add to the tension and uncertainty of other people's turns.
