4th edition huh? Interesting... I did find this reference link en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talisman_(board_game) at wikipedia... Down towards the bottom of the page under "References" there is a link to the press release for 4th edition... (I can not access it from work), but maybe someone else will get the info...

Well, as promised I picked the brains of the folks that blurted out the complaints about the mechanics of the 4th edition being "wonky." This time however, they denied any knowledge of saying that or of anything related to the game, so my attempt to find out more was frustrated, to say the least. I don't know if it was that they were talking nonsense to begin with or if they know some things that they aren't supposed to be talking about.

At any rate, I'll probably pick up a copy of the game when it comes out as I very much liked the original edition. Damn the torpedoes!

Dante,
Thanks for trying anyway :) Press release did say they were modifying the mechanics, supposedly keeping a lot of the old but also with new additions to 'improve' things. As with you, I too will probably pick it up, amongst my other growing lists of wants....just a question of when :) Might wait for your review first :D

LordVoid,
Feedback on your set would be great when you get your AT-43 :) Was looking at that over xmas and the set is huge :) But with my recent splurge on DF stuff, kinda hit the brakes with spending on other gaming stuff :)

Lupus,

I will deffinately get back with a report once I get ahold of it... I ordered it through my FLGS, which is notorious for taking their time as they are small and need "Minimum" orders when they do specialty requests... But I am very curious myself...

I've been trying to keep close tabs on the new Talisman, 4th edition release and it's progress, but there just isn't a whole lot of information released yet regarding gameplay or game component details.

If anyone is interested though, here is the game box cover art that will be used when it is released in October 07!

...also, here is the shortcut if you want the desk-top wallpaper:

I know of many fans out there that feel Talisman was (is) the greatest fantasy BOARD GAME of all time! I've got all 3 editions so far and I must admit, it's been a lot of fun!! I hope their newest release lives up to it's own legacy. Now, if I can just find out some more details on it. *laughs*

...and here's some examples of the art-work:

There's still no hint of gameplay rule changes or anything, but I'll keep all posted : )

Love Talisman. I'll probably pick up the game. I have the third edition and like it. Play it with the family. Although we prefer dungeon quest because it is shorter and well just more funny. I painted up the characters of both games so come October I may have to paint a few more. It might be a good twist if they come prepainted??? MLV I was unable to find anything more from the links but was cool looking at all the other versions out there.

Great News, it's been many years since I played, Talisman, we even finished a game once! Though not with all the add-ons :D

Here's some unexpected news for Talisman fans. It sounds like this will mirror the new boardgame's release sometime in October 2007...

...not sure what to think about this one though!?

It sounds like they are really building up the new Talisman game release...pretty strong statement here at the end. We will see! ~Cheers

Black Industries can also confirm the recommended retail price for the game will be $50 US, £35 sterling and €45. Mal Green, Head of Global Sales for Black Industries, said, “We are astounded at just how fantastic this new edition looks, and at such a great price point it will be affordable for everyone. The quality of this edition is unrivalled in the hobby board games market at present. Talisman will raise the bar.”
