Splendor Board Game Strategy Guide

When you play Splendor for the very first time after hearing the rules explanation, the game flow seems self explanatory. Splendor’s strategy appears to be focused on drawing gems until you can buy cards, then get some more gems to buy some more cards, and again and again. And when your engine is up and running, you start buying some of the more expensive cards which give you points. You might then look at the cards in front of you, look to see what sets of gems the nobles are looking for and aim towards collecting the needed sets so you can get your points from the nobles and win. That way of playing is fine. That way of playing is good! You’ll learn a lot, have lots of fun, and get a better feel for how the game plays. But as you play Splendor more and more, that way of playing isn’t what will allow you to win. To win, you’ll need to dig a bit deeper and be a bit more ruthless. To win, read on, or watch this video below: So here’s how you’d approach Splendor from the mindset of trying to

Splendor

Overview Splendor is a 2-4 player game that’s best played with 3-4 players. The game places you as a gem merchant in the Renaissance where you’re looking to catch the eye of the nobility to become Chief Gemologist. To do so, you’ll have to work hard, using gems to fund development efforts like trade caravans and mining operations… all of which is aimed towards acquiring more gems and gem developments. The more developments that you have that match the Nobles’ taste, the more the Nobles are attracted towards you as a patron. Furthermore, some of the developments you acquire in the game will give you additional prestige. I’m talking things like trading caravans, fancy shops, and great fleets of ships. Be the one to have the most prestige from these developments and the favor of the Nobility and you win! But beware. Other players will be jockeying to get the same developments and gems that you’re going for or try to flatter the same Nobles you’re try

April Games

April games bring May... ?Wow... Where did April go!? It feels like it just FLEW by!!! Here are the games we played through the month...Monday, 1 April 2019We kicked off April with a game of Terraforming Mars. We played on the Elysium board.  I played Terractor, Amanda played the Mining Guild, Finnegan played Phobolog, and The Girl played Thorgate.This was a lower scoring game than some of our other recent games. Not sure why? Everyone rushing to Terraform the damned planet and grab as many Terraforming points as fast as possible…?Amanda took Ecologist and Tychoon milestones, I took first for Celebrity Award, Finnegan took second for Celebrity Award, and The Girl took Specialist Milestone - but only because she went before me that turn! Had I gone first that turn, we would have ended up tied for second one point behind Amanda. As it was The Girl won with 69 points, Amanda was second with 65, I had 59 and Finnegan had 44.Wednesday, 3 April 2019My friend Kurtis came over for supper and a game. I made some

March Games

In March, we played a few games....Friday, 1 March 2019The first of March was a Friday, and therefore Family game night. As we hadn’t gotten to play a game on my birthday, I chose to play Terraforming Mars. This was our fifth play of it so far this year (half way to 10!). While I (and probably Amanda) are far from tiring of this game, I think the kids are… well… interested in playing other things…?This evening we played with the Hellas board. My stuff at the end of the game.Amanda Plante played Ecoline, I tried out Credicor, The Girl played the Tharsis Republic, and Finnegan played Inventrix. I felt like the game went crazy quick – like I was barely getting going… and it was all over!? I did managed to take the Rim Settler milestone and first for the Space Baron Award and tied for second in the Magnate Award. Amanda took the Tactician and Polar Explorer Milestones and first for both the Magnate and Cultivator awards. Finnegan came in second for the Space Baron, Magnate, and Cultivator awards.Amanda won with a

February's Games

We did play a LOT of games this month...Friday, 1 February 2019Friday night is Family game night and this first Friday of February Finnegan took us through the second scenario in his narrative campaign for Sentinels of the Multiverse. In the last game, we defended the Freedom tower from Ambuscade. Having defeated him, we discovered he had attacked the building at the behest of Baron Blade who wanted him to try and steal some piece of technology that Baron Blade wanted to use for some nefarious purpose. And so it was decided we must go and put a stop to Baron Blade, but to do that we would have to travel to space…. But how to do that? Well, apparently, the Maerynians have a few laying around, so we travelled to the Maerynian Refuge to see if we could borrow one… but when we got there AKASH’BUTA showed up and wreaked havoc upon the island… we had to put a stop to that!And put a stop to it we did! We were a little concerned when Finnegan put out the villain card and it had TWO HUNDRED hit points on it!? Yowza! B

January Games

We got in a few games over the holidaze in December, and kind of tried to keep the ball rolling into the new year...Tuesday, 1 January 2019We started the new year off with a bang by having Kurtis and Brent over to play a few games.To start off Kurtis, Brent, Amanda and I played a game of Nations. I played Rome, Amanda played Greece, Kurtis played Egypt, and Brent played Persia.This was a bit of a departure from the last few games I’ve played where I played China and tried to focus on Stability and Grain production and more or less ignore military and wars and stuff and grow population as much as possible to get piles of meeples on industrial age buildings at the end of the game for loads of victory points.It hasn’t worked. I always end up going last (because military determines turn order) and get nothing good and never, EVER get to use my special ability (first to pass gain extra grain…)So, I thought I’d go a different direction and do military….It didn’t really work out either…There were startlingly few bui
