Torres is a great little game that is simple to learn and hard to master, but those who put the effort will gain a mountain of enjoyment. It's one of those games that will scratch your head at first since there isn't a lot to learn as far as rules go. Most people will look at it and think it's too simple and say, "that's all there is to it?" And yes they would be right, since it doesn't require a long rule book to explain its intricacies. Yet, after a couple of plays (or even just in the initial play, like it happened to me) you start to uncover a deep strategy game where every move you make will make a difference down the line. In short, this game is for those that like to think and show their mental dexterity. People should really give it a try.

COMPONENTS

The game brings a lot of little pieces. You get 92 little tower segments, 24 knights if four different colors, four scoring markers, one king, and a set of action, master and codex cards along with a rule book and game board. The knights, king and scoring markers are made of nice wood painted with a good shiny paint. The game board is nice and sturdy with beautiful artwork and the rule book is nicely made. There were a couple of misspelled words here and there, but that's the only drawback on that side. The tower pieces are made of good plastic, but it isn't the best plastic around. They'll last a while, but you won't be wowed by them. The worst aspect of the components is the action cards. They have nice art work, but they aren't made of the most sturdy of materials. It's very flimsy paper stock so after continuous play they will degrade. Try to touch them as little as possible so you don't end up with warped cards.

This is one of my favorite games. Good price on Amazon too. It's only four players but once you get the rules down you will be happy with it. Game play is short but once again you have to invest time into learning the rules. You won't be disappointed. This game is for those who like games like Ticket to Ride or Settlers but maybe want something a tad less family oriented and a tad more strategic. This is one of my favorite games and I don't think I've ever won!

A friend got me Torres as a Christmas gift and I must say it was a fine present indeed. The instruction book is a little daunting, but read through it, knowing the ins and outs of the rules makes the game much more fun.
I've played it a handful of times now and the game gets better every time. I'd have to say that 3 players is perfect though, but 2-4 like it says works well too.
I liken the game to chess. Easy to learn, Difficult to master.
