TableTop Fun: Splendor

Simple. Easy to learn. Not easy to win.

From BoardGameGeek:
Splendor is a fast-paced and addictive 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.
The theme in this one is pretty light... but the components are AMAZING. The chips are nice and heavy. It doesn't feel like you're holding a gem of course... but, for whatever reason, the weight of them feel so nice. Pretty simple game in that it's a race to get 15 Prestige points. Ian almost always wins... /eyeroll

*We played this back in October... so yes, Emma is super young in these pictures. :)
