Space Cowboys Splendor Board Game
Splendor is a fast, elegant, and intuitive game in which two to four players compete to build Renaissance Europe’s most lucrative and prestigious jewelry business. You begin by collecting raw gems and use those to fund the development of mines throughout the world. Once you’ve mined more gemstones, you must acquire the means to transport them, artisans to shape them, and finally a storefront where you can sell your polished jewels. If you produce exactly the right jewelry, a powerful Noble may become your patron, but even then they won’t just hand you victory: the player whose business earns the most prestige wins. Deceptively easy to learn, Splendor involves quick strategic thinking and produces intense interpersonal competition!
