I just downloaded this game on my iPad the other day (was on sale for 99 cents). I've quickly fallen in love with this game and I could see me playing it 2P with various family members -- quite often.

Anyways, I went to go buy it from Amazon and all they appear to have is Splendor with some new artwork (tan curved border on the left side), which I personally find atrocious compared to the old artwork -- even the nobles have the wrong shape for the colors (circles instead of rectangles). I really will not purchase this game with the new artwork. They really need to switch back. (This is just my personal opinion so please don't take any offense).

SO anyone know where I can buy it with the old artwork? If I am forced to buy the new artwork version, I"ll be forced to spend many hours retheming it, printing it, cutting them out, sleeving etc.

There is no "new" artwork.

The picture you see on Asmodee's website and Amazon are of an in-development version that existed before the game was ever published.

The publisher has used those pictures in advertising by mistake. I have informed Asmodee several times and they've done nothing to fix this.

I just edited my reply because it was unclear. What you refer to as "new" artwork is actually old prototype art.

I've tried contacting Asmodee again, pointing them at this thread.

Interesting. It looks like the costs of the patrons changed as well.
