Put out by Days of Wonder, the app version of the game offers two types of play. One is a faithful adaptation of the tabletop game and can be played against the computer or in pass-and-play mode. The other, called “Challenges”, is more of a solitaire puzzle experience
For its $6.99 price, digital Splendor is a good deal. The quality of the tabletop-to-mobile adaptation is first-rate.
The underlying game too is much more than one of those mindless time-wasters, yet it’s not so complex that it requires some high-level dedication to learn or play reasonably well.
