- “Renaissance” graphical and musical ambiance.

- An exclusive game mode: scenario-based “Challenges”.
- Historically-accurate background stories for Challenges set in the 15th to 16th centuries.
- Multiple types of Artificial Intelligence, based on unique strategy behaviors instead of difficulty.
- 3-minute step-by-step interactive tutorial to learn the game and digital interface.

Splendor introduces a special game mode called Challenges. Challenges are based on historical events and anecdotes of the 15th and 16th centuries, setting up a real scenario in various places across the world. They teach you advanced techniques and offer rules variants. They put the player in unique situations with a goal to reach. Either earn a certain number of points or pick up a special card combination, in a limited time or limited number of moves.
Become a game expert and achieve 48 challenges along the trading routes of the world (Madrid, St. Petersburg…), not to mention duels facing great historical figures such as Charles V or Marie Stuart.

Amazing app version
I was first introduced to the board game, and immediately became obsessed (once I understood the game play). I gifted it to all my game loving friends. The downside of board games is finding someone to play with. I saw that there was an app and immediately purchased it, and two years later I haven’t regretted it (except perhaps when it’s kept me up way past bed time). You can play against the AS, pass and play, or play online (which I haven’t tried yet). The mini challenges are fantastic variations of the game, but there haven’t been any new ones in ages, and I really wish there would be more released. I usually play against the AS, and you can pick your opponent and their strategy. It’s exactly like the board game, and I love the strategy element of having to think ahead, yet also having to depend on luck of the draw. It may take a minute to really grasp how to play, but once you learn, you’ll never go back. LOVE LOVE LOVE. But developers, please release more challenges!!
Love. Convenient. Fix probs plz
I play this all the time and I love it. Hubby bought the board game and then told me there was an app. I like all of the challenges and the achievements you can go after. Just noticed two glitches back to back. Had to resign from a two-player v AI game because it didn’t put out a fourth blue card for the market. I restarted the game and it didn’t correct the mistake,
Hence I resigned. During the very next game I wanted to buy a card and I could more than afford it, but it wouldn’t highlight the card to purchase it. If I touched it to purchase it I would have to take a yellow chip to reserve it. I still won the game, but that problem has made me wonder how many times that has happened in the app before and may have changed the outcome of the game. I have screen shots to prove both situations. Please fix. Great job on everything else. :)
Fun but needs work
The graphics are good and the game play is generally smooth, but it has a few problems. It glitches and swaps player names, so you have to depend on the avatar in pass-and-play to know whose turn it is. It regularly logs me out and fails to recognize my login, so my progress is frequently not saved. It isn't true to the rules in some ways (which gems you have to return if you go over and the tie-breaker rule, for example). Finally, it lists all the expansions in the store but only has two available to buy. Note that they're under development or give an expected release date. Something. It's silly to list them the same as available ones.
