Splendor Duel: Battle Head-to-Head in Splendor!
For whom the duel tolls! Confront your rival guild in a race for victory. Take Gems and Pearl from the common board, and gain royal favors and prestige!
The award-winning game Splendor returns with this fresh take on its classic drafting gameplay. Featuring the clever engine building that Splendor is known for, Splendor Duel offers a compact, tight two-player experience that will be instantly recognizable to fans of the original game, while also adding new decisions and mechanisms that offer deeper strategic options.
The new common board has players drafting Gem, Gold and rare Pearl tokens from a 5×5 grid. Only allowed to draft up to 3 tokens in a consecutive line, taking tokens will create gaps in the board and will limit how many and what kind of token players will be able to take in future turns.
Co-designed by Marc André (Splendor) and Bruno Cathala (7 Wonders Duel, Kingdomino), Splendor Duel is an exciting new entry in the Splendor product line.
