Board game review & gameplay of: Splendor

  • 8/10
  • 10+
  • 2-4 players

Splendor is a strategygame in which players act as wealthy merchants, collecting gemstones and developing businesses to attract wealthy patrons. Players use gemstones to purchase development cards, which provide bonuses and victory points. The first player to reach 15 points wins the game.


Overall, I think Splendor is a solid game that is great for both beginners and more experienced players. It's a good choice for those who enjoy games with careful planning and resourcemanagement.

👍 I enjoy the simple yet strategic #gameplay of Splendor.

👍 The game is easy to learn, but there is enough depth and complexity to keep it interesting.

👍 The artwork and components (gem/pokerchips 😍) are beautiful and add to the game experience!

➖ The game can after a while feel a bit repetitive or slow, especially in the mid-game when players are trying to accumulate enough gemstones to purchase higher-level cards.


A copy of this game was provided to me by Asmodee for the purpose of writing this review. My opinion however remains my own.
