About

The OFFICIAL digital adaptation of the best-selling board game Splendor.

In Splendor, you embody a rich merchant during the Renaissance. You will use your resources to acquire mines, transportation methods, and artisans who will allow you to turn raw gems into beautiful jewels, attract nobles and earn prestige.

Press Reviews and awards:

  • Spielbox: "The app is a sparkling jewel…"
  • Pocket Tactics: "... I’m not sure there’s a better looking board game app on the market."
  • Pocket Gamer: "... it's a sure-fire winner."
  • Forbes: "...high replay value. Looks and sounds great, plays smoothly..."
  • Play Board Games: "The Splendor App is pretty splendid..."
  • Purple Pawn: "The quality of the tabletop-to-mobile adaptation is first-rate."
  • Honor: Best Board Game App 2015 (BoardGameGeek)
  • Received the award of the Golden Geek Best Board Game App 2015

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.

Splendor reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Danish
Have had to delete and re- download several times. When playing, the cards or coins get stuck often in the middle of the screen, destroying the game and the experience. Sometimes after a card has been bought, it does not get replaced (despite enough cards in the stack on the right). Other times, the game does not allow you to buy a reserved card even if you have all the coins to be able to do it. Overall it’s too expensive for the annoying / frustrating experience, so not recommended at all. Buy the physical card game instead - it’s much better and more enjoyable.

This is completely unplayable on my iPhone XS Max. Freezes upon launch and crashes. Uninstalled and installed again, restarted etc. On my older iPad Air 2 it plays almost fine. Bugs of various kinds. Coin floating in the middle. Items unelectable. Few crashes. Hi briped.dk, We are sorry for the issues you're encountering with Splendor! For any bug report, please contact our support team here: https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/splendor/?fbclid=IwAR1Q_44ZAO-xaqnfbBP1v2a11KUUNX8Gqnu85BzySMZIoQCD2VpB_DBsEn4&p=ios Know that we are working on fixing the app at the moment. Best regards, Asmodee Digital

This game deserves 5 stars as it is really nice and the parties are relatively quick to play so between two something and well it is easy to indulge in a game calmly. Thank you to the development team that has taken into consideration the comments and especially mine and I am delighted today to be able to assign a 5 star rating because it really is worth it! Thank you and keep it that way! Hello Editueur Xilius, thank you for your return on splendor. We are sorry for the problems you encounter with the game. Be aware that we are bringing back these bugs and that our teams are currently working to provide you with an optimal gaming experience. A patch will soon be deployed. Thanks to you, the Asmodee digital team.

I downloaded this game after testing the games cards. Very good app but several problems. First of all my account disconnects regularly by deleting all my data and no longer allowing me to reconnect. Today I can not enjoy the online version is a pity... Secondly when I could still play online it happened frequently that I could not book cards while I was less than 3 reserved cards. And finally, today and for three days I have not managed to open the application. Is this a known and temporary problem? What is the solution? Very frustrating. Hello, we are sorry to see that you are experiencing different connection problems. Feel free to contact support to ask for help: https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/splendor/sincerely, the Asmodee digital team.
One of the first Asmodee Digital Title's purchased. Well done. There have been some that have complained that there is a way to cheat while playing online, but I have not seen it. A lot of content for single player as well as online play. The challenges they have are quite difficult, but very fun
