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.

What's New in Version 2.0.4
A few bug fixes
Showstopping issues with multiplayer
1) you have to decide exactly how many players you want when you create a match. You can't start the game with fewer than you picked if nobody shows.
2) I randomly got timed out twice and had to leave the game. There was no indication of a time limit, and I was not particularly slow. I don't even get to choose a time limit when I create the game. Nothing more infuriating than getting to the end and having it cancel the game.
3) In one game, an opponent didn't take a turn for 10 minutes, presumably due to some bug. I finally left the game and it docked me karma!
I'll wait for an update before recommending or playing again.
Haven't been able to complete a game yet.
Love this as a board game. The app however runs so slowly between turns being completed for one player then starting the next players turn that it quickly makes you lose interest or disconnects you. My wife and I were in a game sitting next to each other on the couch and 10' from our router, she gets a message saying she left the game and gets docked karma points even though the game booted her. I wish the app was as good as the game is but it's quite a ways away from that at this point.
Fix the bugs!
I love this game and for the most part it works fine. I mostly play against my husband. There are definitely bugs. Most times as turns progress, the names are not correct so we have to follow the pictures of what character we are. Every now and then it will freeze after we have taken a token but if you return them all to the bank and try again it usually works. If these bugs are fixed I'd gladly give 4 stars.
