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.

Ratings and Reviews
Update: pass and play mode appears to be totally broken now. Tried to start a 2 player PnP play game 5 times. The first time the names and portraits were switched (not unusual). The second time something bizarre happened that I don’t recall (yes, random bugs in PnP mode are so common that bizarre doesn’t necessarily mean memorable), so we closed the app and restarted it. The third time it displayed a series of alert messages complaining that game rules couldn’t be loaded (first time I’ve sent that one! Woot!). The four and fifth times the game simply crashed. We gave up decided to play a game of Nach Mal! at that point... Downgrading my rating to 2 stars.
Original review: Uh... just updated to the latest version, went through the Strongholds tutorial, then started a 2 player classic game. The computer won after 4 turns with 16 points. I guess it decided it didn’t need any cards to be able to buy anything... I’ve run into weird bugs in Splendor before - especially the ever buggy pass and play mode - but this one beats them all (except possibly the game where I was about to win at 13 to 6 and the computer suddenly “won” by buying a card and ending with 71 points. No joke.) Yeah the computer is a shameless cheater!
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. :)
