It was great to play this classic again. Ignore the slapped-on theme; Torres is really an abstract about building 'castles' and claiming the highest spots. A game consists of three 'years' with 3-4 turns per year, and at the end of a year you score your current position. The trick is, castles score by multiplying their surface area (number of squares covered) by the height of your 'knight' pawns, so you are always looking to grow your castles and climb higher. Players also have a deck of special action cards that can be bought (in lieu of making moves) and played in future turns to give some rule-breaking moves. All in all, a good thinky Euro.

Greg is new to the game, and I've played a few times but a long time ago, so we weren't really surprised to have been beaten by the more experienced players. It was a really good game regardless, and a great way to end the evening at our table.

Final score: Dan 38, Tom 30, me 22, Greg 13

Blimey, I only watched the last turn of this game, but there seemed to be a lot going on!
