Rebuild the Kingdom...
Welcome to the wonderful world of castle building and knights.
Torres is the latest game from designers Wolfgang Kramer and
Michael Kiesling who brought us Tikal. This time you are a Spanish
prince rebuilding your father's kingdom. Torres expands on the
limited action points system from Tikal, adds action cards such
as in El Grande and introduces a 3D element to
the gameplay. Since being released in 1999 Torres has already
earned critical acclaim by winning Games Magazine's Game of the
Year 2000 award. If you like strategy games with very little
luck then Torres is the game for you.
The tournament format will be single elimination - a late
change from the printed Pre-Registration form. The game will
be played with tables of four players each unless there is an
odd number of players. This means that the winners of the first
round (and any second place finishers to round out to16 players)
will advance on to the 16-player semi-final. The four semi-final
winners will then play in the final game. If there are more than
64 players, then the top 16 points scoring first place finishers
The standard game rules as well as the variant that allows
players to draw three cards and select one from their stack of
action cards will be used for play. Come see what all the fuss
is about and play the newest German treasure Torres.
