Different Strategies

There are many main strategies in Splendor, which applies for everyone and have no preference over one another. Here are some of them:

Card Reserving

  • First, reserve important cards, mostly level 2. This can prevent opponents to get them.
  • Then, buy a few level 1 cards, at least 1 of each type. This should build up your basic engine.
  • After that, start buying cards you reserved and reserve new cards, gaining you lots of points.
  • Do note that you can reserve cards from the deck, which is a good thing when you don't want to destroy the current position.
  • If you notice your opponent aiming for a card, reserve them first to waste their effort.
  • This strategy is what strong players usually do. Therefore when the gold stock is empty, consider other ways to counter...

Engine Building

  • First, buy about 7-9 level 1 cards to get discounts.
  • Secondly, buy cards that can get you nobles. That are valuable in return of your engines.
  • Lastly, start buying point cards with little cost after discount. Some better players can even get cards for free!
  • This strategy is mostly useful for players who have some gaming experience. Do note that everyone wants them and it can be tricky!

High-Score Aiming

  • First, sellect a target. You can reserve it if you want. Then, start collecting lots of gems fpr it.
  • You want to get point cards, especially level 2 and 3 ones. Therefore buy any point card if you can afford.
  • This strategy is mostly useful for beginners with little experience in gaming. It can be effective, but can be blocked easily.
