Days of Wonder is working on a digital adaptation of the popular board game Splendor that'll be out on iOS, Android, and PC this summer.
The physical version of the board game sold over 200,000 copies across 30 countries so there are plenty of fans out there.
If you're one of them, you may need convincing of this adaptation's quality. Well, previously, Days of Wonder brought us the fantastic adaptation of Ticket to Ride.
But if you need further convincing, then know that the publisher of board game is working alongside Days of Wonder to ensure its top notch.
As such, the adaptation should play the same as the original board game. This means you'll be playing as a wealthy Renaissance merchant trying to get the most Prestige points. You win by having the most money and being the most popular merchant.
It's played as a strategic multiplayer turned-based game with cards and a board. The way you gain popularity and wealth is by being crafty and cruel.
You exploit mines and caravans as well as hire craftsmen to leverage their influence with the nobility. How else do you expect a wealthy elite to get what they want?
You can see the first images from the Splendor adaptation above. That's all we have to satiate you for now but it'll be out soon anyway, so just hold on a little longer, and you'll have it in your hands.
