Splendor is a game of chip-collecting and card development. Players are merchants of the Renaissance trying to buy gem mines, means of transportation, shops—all in order to acquire the most prestige points. If you're wealthy enough, you might even receive a visit from a noble at some point, which of course will further increase your prestige.
To win the game, you must reach 15 prestige points before your opponents do!
On your turn, you may do either of the following: (1) collect gems or (2) buy and build a card, or (3) reserve one card.
All of the cards you buy increase your wealth as they give you a permanent gem bonus for later buys.
Some of the cards give you prestige points.
