Splendor is a game of chip-collecting and card development.

There is very little chance in Splendor than other games on the market - it requires a strategic mindset and will appeal to those looking for a game of mental skill over dice rolls.

On your turn, you may (1) collect chips (gems), or (2) buy and build a card, or (3) reserve one card. If you collect chips, you take either three different kinds of chips or two chips of the same kind.
If you buy a card, you pay its price in chips and add it to your playing area. To reserve a card—in order to make sure you get it, or, why not, your opponents don't get it—you place it in front of you face down for later building; this costs you a round, but you also get gold in the form of a joker chip, which you can use as any gem.
All of the cards you buy increase your wealth as they give you a permanent gem bonus for later buys; some of the cards also give you prestige points. In order to win the game, you must reach 15 prestige points before your opponents do.

Top tip: Try and grab our attention – what is it about your new toy/board game/idea that will capture the imagination of customers?
As a business we want to do business the right way. Our customers can always buy from us in the comfort we maintain the highest ethical standards and protect our planet from waste and emissions.

Additionally, we believe customers should feel comfortable the shops they buy from treat their staff and their suppliers well. We are committed to paying – at a minimum - a living wage to all employees, moreover, we will not use delivery companies that fail to ensure guaranteed wages and pensions for their employees.
As a result of our commitment and following review of all potential suppliers, all of our deliveries for 2020 are to be distributed by Royal Mail.
