The recent war has left all the king's castles in ruin. Only the foundations of these once magnificent monuments remain. The war not only robbed the king of his castles, but also of his youth. The now elderly king must choose a successor from among his sons. He has charged them with rebuilding his castles and promised the throne to the one who can rebuild the tallest and largest castles.

Tired of war, the king requires that the building be done in peace and a spirit of co-operation. Thus, the princes may not attack each other or the castles being built. Each prince has six knights to supervise the building. Two or more princes may work together on a castle with their knights competing to control the highest towers of the castle. The king will spend each year in a castle and will reward the prince whose knights are guarding him.

Once a year, the king will tour the castles to judge the progress of each son. After he finishes the third tour, he will choose his successor and prepare for his own death.

The players earn points at the end of each of the three years for every castle where they are represented by a knight. The score is the product of the surface area of the castle and the level where the knight stands. The player who collects the most points over the three years is the winner.

Torres was designed by Wolfgang Kramer and Michael Kiesling and is published by Ravensburger (German edition) and Rio Grande Games (English edition).
