Game Arrivals: Week of May 4th - 10th

This week's arrivals includes a newly released game and a new game expansion.  Here's a look at what hit the shelves:

Newly released and on the shelf is Splendor from Space Cowboys/Asmodee.
Space Cowboys/Asmodee

Splendor is a fast-paced lite strategy game.  In the game, players take gem and gold tokens to purchase development cards which are worth victory points and/or gem bonuses.  The cards with the gem bonuses allow players to purchase subsequent development cards at a lower cost.  Additionally, the gem bonus cards allow you to purchase a visit from a noble. Victory points are achieved from a combination of development cards and visits from nobles.

We have an open copy of Splendor available in our Demo Game Library for you to come in and try.
