The digital version of Splendor faithfully adapts all the various elements of the Space Cowboys’ award-winning board game:
- Fast and easy to learn, yet hard to master.
- Lavish graphics and cards, true to the original game.
- “Renaissance” graphical and musical ambiance.
- Solo mode, pass & play and online multiplayer (2 to 4 players).
- 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.
- Achievements board.
- Worldwide leaderboards and rank system by connecting with a Days of Wonder account.
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.

- Miscellaneous bug fixes
Don't waste your money
Wow...the game was already buggy on 3 and 4 player games so I only played 300+ two player games. Now the update last week makes 2 player games buggy.
As much fun Splendor is, don't waste your money on this app...I am running on an iPad and all of my other game apps are fine. You read any of the posts in the game and there is about 1 post for every 5 saying this game won't work right.
For instance, I can't reserve cards in middle of game...the option just won't be available despite space available in my reserve.
It will freeze up and kick you out in any 3 and 4 player games...if you get a complete competitive game in it is a miracle...not kidding.
Time to go back to ticket to ride or maybe try out terra mystica...been hearing good things about it.
Online is horrible but...
We LOVE this game. We've been playing the board game for a while now but this is convenient when on vacation. However, the latest version has a LOT of kinks and needs to be fixed.
Horrible horrible game
I've spent a great deal of time playing the game now (1000 games in hand), so I can tell you I've explored the most of the good and bad of this game. And to sum it up, it can only be described by 1 word: HORRIBLE. Yes, deservedly in CAPS.
This experience will not just be mine, but shared by ALL the players in the game. Developers, if you take just one second to look at the chat box of the players complaining about bug, you will see. How is it possible that after a LONGGG period of time filled with bugs, you release an update that unleash even more bugs??? That's right. The game now will definitely run into some form of trouble about 15 minutes into the game. This is just irresponsible. You ruin this beautiful game with your terrible devs skill that put all these players into frustration. I don't know about Android but look up Steam too and you'll see what Im talking about. I wish I could get my money back now. $7 for a long period of despair and frustration. You will definitely run this game to the ground. No one will ever play this game anymore. Such nonsense.
