Cool, I love this game. Been thinking about buying my own set for about the last year - now I can hold out until October.

My good buddy owns the main set (??edition) and all the expansions. We've had some monumental game nights with those.

I have seen a picture " at a flgs " of the new board and a few of the characters around it about two weeks ago. It came as a little pamphlet. If I see it again " and someone is interested " I can scan and post a pic of it. I really liked the third edition because it tighten up the game a little and came with the miniature that I promptly painted. I know it did not have near as many and I know also that mini's were available for 2nd ed but the pic I saw of the upcoming release showed those paper characters with the small black stands. I was kind of put a back. I am sure this will not matter to some but I was a bit disappointed somehow. The board looked as cool as any of the releases have.

Hi Whitewind!

There really has not been a whole lot of information leaked out yet on the new Talisman release. If you have pics of the new board, I would LOVE to see them! With or without new minis, I'm still excited about the new release. If I have to, I'll use my own character figures...heh.

Thanks for the info -- looking forward to seeing that new game board.

~Cheers

For all of you Talisman fans out there...and you know who you are!
Here's the first real close-up look of the new 4th Edition version of the game that is slotted for Oct 2007 release. There's some pretty good pics here and I think the cards and game board look very nice. Hopefully there will be some new expansions for it later down the road like in past editions...some new minis, I hope!

Board looks cool. Little disappointed with the cardboard cut out markers, thought they would have gone with some plastic minis :) but looking forwards to it none the less :)

Board looks great! Hope they do they expansions!!!

I wonder if we can suggest the WoTC plastic minis as substitutes for each character?

I know what we can use for the TOAD....

With a big enough collection of DDM I think it would be possible to cover just about any of the creatures from the old game! :)

Yeah, I agree guys...I'll be using my own minis with this game when it comes out. I guess they were trying to keep the game price down to a comfortable level with the cardboard cut-out characters helping with that.

Personally, I would have loved for the people of Talisman to have collaborated with Dwarven Forge; creating a "Polystone Dungeon Gameboard". Man, that would have been cool! Of course the price of the game would then have had to be at least a couple hundred dollars...lol. The scary thing is, I would have gladly paid it!!

I have never played this game but I suppose by the fans on this forum I would like to try it. I tried Settlers of Catan recently and loved it. The board does look great.

Fun game, we just have a house rule, you can only collect spells at the beginning of your turn. Those that have had a prophetess and someone with the wand... you understand.

Indeed - that was a rule a could never figure out, and I like your adjustment to it!

There was another character in one of the expansions which had the same collecting spells problem....maybe the sprite? I can't remember...
