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 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. This will be a tournament format to see who is the best merchant. Familiarity with the game is suggested, but rules will be taught beforehand for new players.
