The Splendor rules state: "In case of a tie, the player who has purchased the fewest development cards wins."
I played a 2-player game against the AI on the Splendor app and we tied on 15 points and while I had 19 development cards, my opponent only had 16, so naturally the victory should have been theirs...
...However, I was awarded the victory! (?)
I looked at the details of the prestige points and have come to assume the app used the fewer number of development cards with prestige points as the tie-breaker criteria, as I only had 6 development cards with prestige points on them while my opponent had 7.
A very strange occurrence, but I think that if two players ended with the same points total and number of development cards, the fewer number of development cards with prestige points would work as a second tie-break criteria.
Having said that, in my games, if you have the same points total and number of development cards I’d call it a tie.
