NAME OF GAME: Splendor
DESCRIPTION: 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.
RATINGS & OPINIONS:
A QUICK HOW TO:
THE DOWN LOW:
Splendor is a great 2-4 person, family game. It is easy to play even from the very first time you open the box. The rules are simple to understand for all ages. Splendor is the perfect game for those who are just getting into card and board games. Likewise, Splendor has a few educational components such as economic concepts and resource depletion as well as historical connections to the Renaissance era. This makes it perfect for teachers to include in their classroom. Overall, we recommend Splendor to just about any family since it provides a healthy amount of competition without the clawing and ferocity that usually occurs during Monopoly.
