Can anybody help me with the following sentence:

Thanks in advance.

scores means a large number, as in the following example:
7. scores Large numbers: Scores of people attended the rally.

the phrase you wrote means his eyes were the place where a lot of dancing elf-type smiles played

translation:

...sus ojos un lugar de juego para miles pequeñas sonrisas traviesas, danzantes y trémulas
