Cities of Splendor provides four separate modules that can individually be played with the base game. The designers have understood the importance within the simplicity and sleekness of Splendor's design.
The Cities replaces the noble tiles with randomised objectives that must be satisfied with a combination of prestige points or development cards, and you need to fulfil one of them to win the game.
The Trading Posts are special bonuses you earn by acquiring an array of development cards.
The Orient adds three decks of cards (one for each level of development cards). They are added on the right side of the regular cards and you place two of them face-up on the table for each level. The new cards have special powers (like double bonus cards or joker cards which take the colour of one of the developments you already own).
