Torrock in HakenCourt

This picture shows some people playing Torrok in HakenCourt early in Morningday and in the spring of the year, before the bloom. One cook already has a caldron of oil heating for lunch but most people have just finished breakfast. Back in the Starship Age, Alan and Desa lived six levels above the couple watching from their balcony. The scene has changed little since then.

In Torrock and all games in its class, the goal is to reach the center cell. Anyone who lets the ball touch the ground in their cell or hits the ball into an unoccupied cell goes back to the entry cell and everyone else moves up. This means the current occupant of the center cell is usually kept pretty busy.
