Development cards are a central element of Splendor and are used by players to earn prestige points and gain bonuses. There are three levels of development cards in the game. Each development card specifies its gem cost (represented by different colors), the prestige points it's worth, and any bonuses it provides. Bonuses from development cards can be used to offset the cost of future card purchases.

Level 1 Cards[]

These are the easiest to acquire and have lower point values and requirements. They typically require fewer gems and bonuses to purchase.

Level 2 Cards[]

These cards are of medium difficulty to acquire, with slightly higher point values and requirements compared to Level 1 cards.

Level 3 Cards[]

Level 3 cards are the most challenging to obtain but offer the highest point values and bonuses. They often require a combination of various gem types and bonuses.
