There’s a ton of games out there. And when you live in certain regions, there’s a chance you might never get a chance to play some of them. The folks at IDW Games and Hutch! think that’s terrible. Everyone should have a chance to play all the cool games out there. As such, they’re working together to bring Torres back to North American gamers.
From the announcement:
Torres tells the compelling tale of a city in need of hope. Following a massive destruction, the King has entrusted his successors to rebuild the city, one castle at a time, to reclaim its prior majesty. That’s where you must act, as a prince in control of 6 knights, stacking castle pieces on top of one another to rebuild the city. Where you place your knights influences how many victory points you earn for the turn.
Torres presents beautifully on the table. With fully updated art and pieces, Torres comes with over 90 sculpted plastic castle pieces that stack on top of one another, 28 beautiful knight figures, 1 King figure, cards, and more. In terms of gameplay, it has the cut and crunch of a Eurogame, with the beauty and elegance of an abstract.
As thematic as it is strategic, this game will force you to make careful moves with your trusted knights, build towers to not only help you score in the short-term, but to set yourself up for your next consecutive turns. Torres provides players with the opportunity to strategize and think ahead for massive long-term pay-offs.
Reclaim the glory of this Spiel des Jahres winner. The cost to build this castle is $49.99. Releasing in August 2017.
