Rocky Road à la Mode is fun game that is similar to splendor, but different enough that I enjoy owning both. It is also a small box and portable.

As a counterpoint this is the comment I left on the the game page after buying it based on exactly this kind of endorsement:

Quote:
Wouldn't turn down a play but don't be drawn in like I did by claims that this is Splendor-like with Patchwork turn order added to the mix. While that's not completely inaccurate and it is reasonably fun light fare it's SO much more fiddly by comparison, and lacks the elegance that makes Splendor special by a wide margin.

As a counter-counterpoint, I'd play Rocky Road a la Mode over Splendor any day. I find Rocky Road a la Mode to be lighthearted fun and Splendor to be dry and boring. Splendor also has a tendency to get bogged down in mathiness, which I think is more easily avoided in Rocky Road.

While it is probably fair to say Splendor is more "elegant", I have more fun playing Rocky Road a la Mode.

It takes all kinds!

Rocky Road, for me, is lacking because of the under-sized components they used to get it to fit in a small box. The board/4 cards that act as a board is especially frustrating. I really wish they would have made it a bigger game.
