Talisman (Revised 4th edition)


In Talisman, the classic fantasy adventure board game for two to six players, you’ll embark on a perilous quest for the legendary Crown of Command. You’ll choose the warrior, priest, wizard, or one of eleven other heroes with powers both magical and mighty, and you’ll race your opponents through a perilous realm. Each player rolls a die to determine his movement around the regions of the board, where he encounters dangerous foes and claims powerful rewards, all in preparation for his final climactic test.

Talisman takes you on a journey through magical lands, as you endeavour to reclaim the Crown of Command. Each turn will see your hero advancing, battling, gaining knowledge and power necessary to defeat the guardians lurking between the Portal of Power and the Valley of Fire.

    A remake of a game I really enjoyed as a child, though I’m not sure I’d recommend playing it with children. It’s a rather long but simple game and a relaxing way to spend an evening.
