My initial thoughts of the game (prior to purchasing or playing) wasn’t amazing. It was my husband’s game choice. Once opened I was intrigued, the game has beautiful components. As we set it up, I began to get excited about playing it!

It’s a very simple game. You collect gems (3 different gems or 2 of one kind) to purchase cards that then are used as a permanent gem. Each card is worth 0-5 victory points. You can also get VP by gaining one or more of the nobles (each worth 3VP). First to 15VP wins!

The best thing about Splendor is how easy it is to learn. It’s so simple that I was able to teach my 5 year old. He’s not “great” at the game but he’s picking it up quickly and loves it!

The only downside that I’ve come across so far is the fact that my husband rarely wins, therefore is becoming frustrated and doesn’t want to play it with me anymore.

Splendor is definitely on my top 10 list. We’ve played the game over 50 times and still enjoy it as much as the first time. It’s still one that we reach for nearly every game night (and we play weekly!)
