The Snakescast: Game Spotlight: Splendor

Play

A simple, beautiful, and wonderfully accessible new game

This year's Spiel Des Jahres awards nominees have been announced, and the front-runner is Marc André's "Splendor", a game about collecting coloured jewels and cashing them in for points. It's simple to learn, beautifully presented, and offers surprising depth considering how easy it is to learn. It's a quintessential SdJ nominee, and this week the gurus will be talking about it.
