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.

Ratings and Reviews
Not working properly with iPhone, works okay with iPad
I love Splendor and would love to be able to get my fix (and hone my strategy) while on the go. I downloaded the iPad version of the app, and while there’s some glitchy-ness, it does not affect gameplay. Some things could be added, the the ability to go back on decisions you make (like which coins to give back when you’ve taken over 10) and possibly better readouts/visuals of what all everyone has as far as tokens and prestige. I think it’s a lovely version of the game, but something needs to be done to get the iPhone version functioning. It won’t progress forward with my selections unless I get out of the app and go back in — then it will freeze again. Sometimes it will just crash my phone completely out, too. If you are privileged enough to have an iPad, download the iPad version and enjoy! For the iPhone, we need an update to fix the glitching.
Amazing app version
I was first introduced to the board game, and immediately became obsessed (once I understood the game play). I gifted it to all my game loving friends. The downside of board games is finding someone to play with. I saw that there was an app and immediately purchased it, and two years later I haven’t regretted it (except perhaps when it’s kept me up way past bed time). You can play against the AS, pass and play, or play online (which I haven’t tried yet). The mini challenges are fantastic variations of the game, but there haven’t been any new ones in ages, and I really wish there would be more released. I usually play against the AS, and you can pick your opponent and their strategy. It’s exactly like the board game, and I love the strategy element of having to think ahead, yet also having to depend on luck of the draw. It may take a minute to really grasp how to play, but once you learn, you’ll never go back. LOVE LOVE LOVE. But developers, please release more challenges!!
This game desperately needs a major bug fix release. The game is great and fun. The problem is that about one third of games are completely ruined because of bugs. I’ve had a game where the opponent could purchase any card and never pay a single token for them. I’ve had a game where a player picked up a 2 point card that should have taken their score from 7 to 9. Instead, their score jumped to 25 and I immediately lost. I’ve had 5 wild tokens in hand, only to be removed from my hand and placed back in the draw piles. Three hands later, they showed back up in my hand, but missed opportunities and total confusion.
Splendor is a fantastic board game. Online play is potentially GREAT, but the developer has completely ruined the experience by writing incredibly buggy software that is not being properly maintained. It’s a crapshoot whether a game will actually play legitimately to the point that it makes it not worth rolling the dice to find out if the game is going to screw you or not.
