My friend Shlomo came to visit Israel briefly and stopped by for shabbat. I taught him Torres, and he was happy, so we played again. I told his that since he is returning to America via Germany, he should try to pick it up on the way back. Actually, he should have picked up some games on the way over, tsk tsk.)
Torres is just one of those games I get pretty well. Not too challenging. Since most of the people I play with also get it, the game comes down to fighting over a few points, and most of the moves play themselves (or some equal alternative). Still willing to play to see if I'm missing something deeper.
Puerto Rico was two player with my wife, as usual.
