Yeah, we had one game where we had about 8 folks playing. At certain points in the game, the 2 of us would cast spells for 15-30 minutes, then we'd all look around and say "OK, whose turn is it again?". Thus, the house rule.

Hey gang -- here's the latest update on the new Talisman release...

www.blackindustries.com/?template=TM&content=talisman-adventure-art

...a nice article regarding the artist involved, and examples of the "card-art" used in the game. If you haven't noticed yet, I personally can't wait for this game's release in October!

~Cheers

Oh well won't be getting this version as I have third and have painted the mini's and added a few. Just wish that once they reprinted the third edition like they did a while back that they would do the expansions for it also but they did not. Would have preferred not yet another version of the game. It does look nice but I won't purchase the game over again. LOL.

Hi, All -

I will DEFINITELY be getting this edition !! I played Talisman (1st ed.) for the first time the other day and absolutely loved it !! Yes, I live in a cave but we do have running water ;)

This updated set looks fantastic and for a better price than the $75 version released a few years ago. I hope it sells well so they do make the expansions !!

After seeing it more on the site I don't think I'll be able to resist. I guess folks are right that we can substitute mini's for the cards " they even give a few suggestions ". I like the artwork and there are even coins for gold. Very nice. I hope they do expansions. YES! Someone mentioned a 3D version of the game? I have the 3D Catan and a similar one for Talisman I would gladly fork over the money.

I was able to finally to pick up the NEW edition of Talisman! I am very pleased with the new edition, as the game pieces are greatly improved over the older releases. The Adventure Cards, Spell Cards and Purchase Cards are of a high gloss card-stock and the artwork is beautiful in comparison to the previous editions (and I own all of them now!). To round out my short review, the Gold Coins are very nicely detailed and the Game Board is beautifully colored.

Instead of using the basic "cut-out" character pieces that come with this one, you will definitely want to use the Talisman mini's from previous editions/expansions. I'm hopeful that there will be follow-up expansions and mini's in time. I guess they wanted to keep the initial price down to an affordable level for all. In my opinion, the whole package here was well worth the $50.00 price tag...a really nice upgrade from past editions and with very high quality game pieces in comparison to the older releases.

I hope this helps, if there are any other big Talisman fans out there that are thinking about picking this game up.

...oh yeah, I almost forgot to add here. The game mechanics for this new edition are almost exactly the same as 3rd edition, if anyone is curious. For the most part, in my opinion, this Edition was just an improvement in over-all artwork and better quality in game parts. The rules and mechanics remain true to the previous releases.

Another note here, for those of you Talisman fans that had the "Dragons Tower" expansion that was placed in the center of the game board to substitute the original "Crown Of Command" end-game...well this new game board is a good size larger. The Inner Region is twice the size now! You can fit 2 Towers in there now!

Hopefully we'll get an update with a bigger and better tower soon! I guess time will tell.

THANKS for the update!

Question - how many different characters come with this version and how many do you think could be substituted with DDM minis??

Hi Harneloot,

The game comes with 14 different characters (not bad for the basic game) and ALL of them can be substituted with DDM mini's. The most challenging one to find a mini for is probably the Minstrel.

Here is the list of the 14 characters you get--

Wizard
Druid
Assassin
Warrior
Troll
Thief
Sorceress
Elf
Dwarf
Ghoul
Phophetess
Priest
Monk
Minstrel

It's a nice spread of characters to start with. I'm still hoping more characters will be added with new expansions though.

You could use Delvis, half elf bard for the minstrel!

Any new thoughts now that the game has been out for a few months?
