Update - 13th January - Mac version and free characters!

Mac version released! Free characters! New Achievements! Many bug fixes! Read on for a gigantic list of new features and fixes...

Mac Version -
The game is now available for Mac OSX. Cross-platform multiplayer works between PC & Mac. Android and iOS platforms will be added to cross-platform multiplayer in the next few weeks.

New FREE Characters -
The Pirate and Ninja are now available to select in-game and have been included for free to thank you all for your support over the last year of Talisman: Digital Edition development.
Unseen since 1986/7, these two characters are updated to fit with the 4th revised edition.
If you have the 'Standard Characters Only' House Rule on, you will not have the Pirate or Ninja in your game.
You can read the Pirate and Ninja's stats and abilities HERE -> http://www.talisman-game.com/ninja-pirate/#more-5406

New Achievements -
We've added 51 new achievements to the game, which mostly cover the expansion packs and extra characters. 11 of them are for the Highland expansion, as yet unreleased, so they cannot be achieved yet.

New House Rule -
Winner Takes All - Requires the Dungeon expansion pack.
The first player to defeat the Lord of Darkness wins the game.

Re-Join Online Games -
You can now re-join an online game without everyone having to leave and resume. If you are disconnected, or need to leave for any reason, you can re-join the game later by selecting it on the online games screen. You will return to the game at the start of the next turn.


Bug fixes (there have been many more than this, these are just a select few)...

Couldn't evade the Battle Hulk if it was encountered after casting Metamorph.
Weakness spell could be cast on someone with the Amulet.
Fireball spell had no effect against the Living Statue.
Bug with Pathfinder and Misdirection fixed.
Doppelganger was incorrectly gaining a bonus from the Bolster spell.
Fixes to some achievements that were not working correctly - Ghoul and Denied achievements plus others.
AI would sometimes cast Healing on other players when it would have been better cast on itself.
Fix for crashes when someone leaves and online game.
Blizzard now affects the Dungeon region.
Alchemist & Tinker Imp bug fixed.
Elixir of Life was giving the wrong roll results.
Players wouldn't be able to roll for the Reaper's movement if they rolled a 1 and tried to move past the Sentinel but lose.

Crash when sacrificing a follower with the Book of Diablerie at the Prison Cell space.
Misdirection cast on a character in the Inner Region was causing the game to stop.
Fixes to Italian text.
Increased the value of the Fate Stealer to the Gambler.
Fixes to the Character Select house rule for online games.
A player with the Torch from the Dungeon could move the Reaper if one of their movement rolls was a 1, even if they used the other result.
Fixed an endless loop with an AI Elf and the Herbalist card.
Fixed too much glowing on spaces you can move to, which was causing crashes on lower spec machines.
Removed the Auto Join feature for online games. It was causing many connection problems.
Fixed being able to use the Cloak of Feathers at the Crown of Command to leave the space.
Choosing to hand in 1 follower and lose 1 life at the Vampire's Tower was causing a crash.
Ghoul character could use more than 1 raised follower in battle.
Sage could cast Twist of Fate if he had no fate, when re-rolling for his movement.
Swashbuckler could add 1 to his roll for the Carnival card incorrectly.
Resumed online games were ignoring some house rule settings, causing de-synching and crashes.

You couldn't use the Orb of Knowledge (or Prophetess' ability) on the Monster Pit space.
Marked for Glory now only works for the next die roll.

Fixed ' is the host' online message with no username shown.
Fixed being able to draw a new spell with the Wand if the previous spell you cast was Destroy Magic.
Fixed corrupt card images displaying when you switched between windowed and full-screen modes.
Fiend Slayer follower didn't work at the Monster Pit.
Crash fix - encounter the Summoning Circle space if there is an enemy already there and it is the only enemy in the Dungeon.
AI speed setting now affects the 'start of turn' delay, speeding the game up a little.
Fixed characters fighting themselves after being teleported away from the Crown of Command space.
Fixed the Elf AI returning to Woods spaces which contain objects he cannot have.
Fixed being able to select 0 lives to heal at the City Doctor.
Cards being looked at because of the Crypt Keeper or Treasure Chest are no longer hidden to other players.
Fixed a crash/hang that would occur if you ditched more cards than you would have drawn on a space.

Happy New Year to you all!

The Dungeon Expansion Now Available!

The Dungeon expansion is now available!

This new expansion adds a whole new region for heroes to explore. Brave the untold dangers and confront the Lord of Darkness! Also included are 168 new cards and 5 characters - Amazon, Gladiator, Philosopher, Gypsy and Swashbuckler.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/267775

Gold Pack and Season Pass owners will have access to the Dungeon with no extra purchase required.

Many thanks to the Beta testers for their help!

Other New features -

The game now runs at a silky smooth 60fps.

You can now change the number of players in an online game from the lobby screen. Use the + and - buttons to add player slots or remove slots. This will also kick players from the game if they were in a slot which was removed.

You can now click on card names in the Game Log and the card will appear for you to read.

New House Rules -
Standard Characters Only - the game will only use characters from the base game and official expansions.
Treasure Card Rewards - Requires Dungeon - Upon completion of a Warlock Quest, players may choose a random Treasure Card or a Talisman as their reward.
Random Treasures - Requires Dungeon - Whenever you gain a Treasure Card, you are given a random one rather than being able to choose one.
The House Rules list is getting rather large and we will be re-arranging it soon so that it's easier to use.

Fixes -

Achievements which required a goal to be completed several times (Trophy Master, Online Adventurer, etc.) were unlocking too early.

Online games - looking at any of your cards during another player's turn caused the game to pause for everyone.

Online - Players remained as AI players for the rest of the game if their timer ran out during character selection.

The 'View Board' option would sometimes get stuck lower down the screen if many options had been available.

You can now cast Path of Destiny on a Toad.

Freeze & Reflection spells weren't working correctly together.

Fixed having to click 'Encounter' twice when encountering a Spirit as the Necromancer.

A scroll-bar has been added to the online chat window.

Runestones weren't working correctly in online games and causing mismatched choice errors.

AI's evaluation of the Sky Screecher improved.

Druid wasn't gaining the correct number of spells from the Woods if he landed there because of Transference.

Necromancer couldn't use more than one enthralled spirit at a time.

Available options at the Graveyard in some situations corrected.

Fixed having an extra turn if you were killed during Temporal Warp's effect.

Fixed some cards disappearing (black shape) when being used.

Prophetess and Orb of Knowledge 'replace card' ability reworked slightly.

Dark Cultist wasn't able to roll on her reward chart if she defeated an enemy that gives a stat bonus (e.g. Doppelganger).

Fixed Lucky Charm usage when rolling for the Gust of Wind spell.

Usability fix - if you have space for objects in a Concealed Pouch or other type of bag, you can use it at the point where you're asked to ditch objects because you have too many.

The Gambler had the option to sell trophies whilst casting the Command Spell, which made the game get stuck.

Fixed House Rule settings being overwritten by local save information in online games.

Crash when Black Ice is cast on a space in the Inner Region.

Marked for Glory could be cast in situations where you had no dice to roll.

Could cast Marked for Glory even if you had the Amulet.

Lucky Charm and Marked For Glory are now easier to use when rolling more than one dice.

You can now teleport past the Portal of Power even if you have an active Warlock's Quest, with cards such as the Magic Portal and the Lord of the Pits.

Druid gains the correct number of spells if he's moved to a Woods space via Transference.

Necromancer can use more than one enthralled spirit in psychic combat.

The auto-switching of tabs in the Play Area is now a toggle in the advanced options.

Events/Enemies with encounter number 1 are now encountered in the correct order.


As usual, thanks to everyone for the continued feedback. We always read the forums but don't always have the time to respond.

Happy dungeon delving!

Hallo zusammen,
weiß überhaupt nicht wieso das Spiel eine Bewertung von 51 bekommen hat. Ich selbst kann das Spiel nur jedem Empfehlen, der auch das Brettspiel kennt oder einfach auch den Bereich Fantasy mag. Wie auch auf dem Brettspiel ist es bei der Digitalen Version nicht anders, man brauch für eine Spielrunde mind. 3-4 Std. - was für viele sicher abschreckend wirkt. Gespielt wird das Spiel mit 4 Spielern oder weniger, natürlich kann man auch alleine Spielen dann aber gegen den Computer und nicht Online mit anderen zusammen (es macht halt mehr Spaß mit anderen). Man kann sich zu Beginn des Spiels ein Charakter aussuchen mit dem man Spielen möchte, es gibt eine menge Charaktere die verschiedene Fähigkeiten, Stats (Stärke, Talent und Leben), Zaubersprüche oder sogar Waffen benutzen können. Daher sollte man schauen welche man wählt, im Grunde haben alle ihre Vor- und Nachteile. Sobald man seinen Charakter ausgesucht hat kann man das Spiel beginnen. Je nachdem was ihr für welche Charaktere ihr genommen habt, kann dieser ggf. Zaubersprüche nutzen oder eben nicht. Gespielt wird in Runden und man muss auf jedem Feld bzw. fast jedem Feld Arbenteuerkarten ziehen, die können beinhalten von Monstern bis hin zu Gegenstände (normal oder Magische), Begleiter und Ereignisse usw.

Euer Ziel des Spiels ist zur Krone der Herrschaft zu kommen, dies könnt ihr jedoch nur tun wenn ihr 1. einen Talisman besitzt und 2. ihr genug Stärke oder Talent + Begleiter besitzt je nachdem welchen weg ihr wählt.

Aber alles im allem macht das Spiel Spaß und man kann es immer wieder Spielen, ohne das einem Langweilig wird.

95/100 Puntke!
Bestes Digitales Brett-Karten-Rollenspiel was ich kenne!

Vorab muss ich sagen, dass ich Talisman als Brettspiel kenne und liebe. Es ist immer wieder eine Freude, einen Abend mit Freunden mit dem Kampf um die "Krone der Herrschaft" zu verbringen. Nicht zuletzt deshalb ist diese Review etwas vom Original Brettspiel vorbelastet. Aber die digitale Umsetzung ist sehr gut gelungen und deshalb kann ich dieses Karten-Brettspiel auch online empfehlen: Ich würde Euch aber raten, Eure Gegner in den Vocie-Chat oder ins Teamspeak einzuladen, dann macht es einfach NOCH mehr Spaß!

Ursprünglich stammt Talisman aus dem Jahr 1983 und wurde von Games Workshop direkt vertrieben. Aber das Spielziel, dass 2 – 6 Spieler um die Krone der Herrschaft kämpfen ist gleich geblieben. So kombiniert Talisman auf dem Weg zu diesem Ziel verschiedene Rollenspielelemente im Brettspiel. Jeder Spieler übernimmt die Rolle eines zufällig ermittelten oder ausgewählten Charakters und reist über das Spielfeld, welches in 3 ringförmigen Ebenen aufgeteilt ist, trifft dabei auf Fremde, Freunde und Gegner, sammelt Gold und Gegenstände und rüstet sich langsam für die immer schwereren Herausforderungen bis er letzt endlich Stark genug ist um sich die Krone der Herrschaft zu schnappen.

Die Spieler erhalten jeweils einen von unzähligen verschiedenen Helden (Elf, Troll, Mönch, Krieger, Assassine, Magier usw.) und ziehen mit diesen reihum W6 Felder in eine beliebige Richtung entlang der Ebenen. Dabei verfügen die Charaktere über die Werte Stärke (für klassischen Nahkampf) und Talent (für magische Attacken). Während der Reise durch die verschiedenen Regionen sammeln die Helden weitere Gegenstände, die primär diese Werte steigern (und stellenweise andere Spielvorteile bringen, wie z.B. mehr Gegenstände tragen zu können) und damit besser im Kampf gegen verschiedene Gegner bestehen können. Es steht den Spielern sogar frei, sich gegenseitig den gar aus zu machen
Die drei Regionen werden zum Zentrum hin, immer gefährlicher für die Spieler, aber sie kommen so auch immer näher an das Spielziel. Der Übergang von einer Ebene zur nächst höheren ist immer mit einem Hindernis verbunden, die erste wird von einem reißendem Fluß umgeben oder einem Wächter verteidigt und die zweite durch ein Portal geschützt.

Das "Online-Talisman" ist eine gelungene digitale Auflage des Brett-Rollenspiels.
Die Regeln sind schnell erklärt und verstanden, das Spiel fasziniert Jung und Alt, was sich immer wieder an den (realen sowie online-)Spieleabenden bestätigt. Selbst ohne die Erweiterungen bietet das Grundspiel bereits langfristigen Spaß sowie Abwechslung wegen der vielen Charaktere und Karten!

Ich war immer skeptisch, bei Brettspielen am PC - allerdings ist das Spielgefühl hier bei Talisman genauso vorhanden und dank meins Touchscreens kann ich auch Züge mit meinem Finger ausüben! ;)

Noch entspannter als das Brettspiel.
Endlich Talisman Digital Edition,früher mit der Brettspiel Version des Spiels hatte ich schon viel Spass doch musste ich Öfter aus Zeitmangel verzichten.Da kommt jetzt die Speicherfunktion von Vorteil (und der Tisch ist nicht Tagelang belegt mit einer unbeendeten partie) daher.
Das Spiel ist wahnsinnig umfangreich und wird in zukunft noch um einigen Inhalt wachsen,da bietet sich der "echte" Seasonpass an ,da jeglicher zukuftiger DLC beeinhaltet ist.
Der hersteller hat wirklich ein großes interesse an Qualität was man schon von den brettspielen kennt wird hier digital fortgesetzt und erstklassig umgesetzt.Alles in allem Jeden Cent wert und sehr weiterzuempfehlen.
übrigens auch für familien abende den das Spiel unterstützt 1-4 Player an einem PC was heutzuage ja nicht mehr jedes Spiel hat um die Verkaufszahlen anzuheben.
Absolut empfehelenswert

Prinzipiell spaßiges Brettspiel. Allerdings ist auch nur die Brettspielvorlage empfehlenswert, da die PC-Version jedes mal bei mindestens einem Mitspieler abstürzt...
Habe noch NIE ein Spiel beenden können. Gute Vorlage, besch***en umgesetzt.

Good old Talisman..

a board game, which could go on over days and in my childhood rarely found a real winner, ´cause we mostly killed each other, before anyone could reach the crown over and over again ;)

So you need some time and patience if you wanted to play a session and this is in some ways is also true for the pc game.
For once the game is still under constand improvement/development, as new characters and add-ons are released on a steady base, so the devs are also constantly working on bugs as well as gameplay improvements.

The conversion from boardgame to pc is actually quite good and at the current state (including the Reaper, Frostmarch, Dungeon expansions) there is enough diversity to do several games, without always having the same characters/events.

While especially with the AI, there are still quite a few bugs (no wonder, due to the wide possibility of actions one can take) it is working well enough, as is the multiplayer part which offers quite some possibilities, which rules the host will allow (and hopefully will soon get a save game function, as these games can have quite some duration, just like the board game).
The graphics are well done, the sound is ok.

So in the end i´m looking forward to the things still to come and enjoy the one or other session of Talisman (but would strongly suggest to wait on a sale for the Season pass, which brings some much needed variety).

The short and sweet: If you like Talisman, you'll very likely enjoy the Digital Edition.

This game is exceptional when it comes to reviews - it's not actually a video game as such, but a digitalized board game. So, you'll find that the majority of negative reviews are from people who don't like Talisman. Well duh. That's not to say all negative reviews are irrellevant. You just can't trust the meta score for a title like this and people playing a game they already know they'll hate makes for some pretty biased reviews. The Steam ratings and reviews are generally more reasonable, though you do still see this happening.

So, are you new to Talisman? New to board games in general? No problem, simple way to see if you might enjoy it. Youtube. Go watch gameplay of the actual board game and/or the digital version. If you find yourself wanting to take one of the seats and play - then this game is for you. If it looks boring and you lose interest fast (as many people do with board games) then look elsewhere. Lastly, I'm sure there are outliers. People who like the board game but hate the digital version. But, again - that should become obvious to you as you watch it played.

I think Nomad has done an excellent job translating the game. And as someone who has moved half-way across the world from their board game friends, it's a great way to keep in touch and get my fix. Happy gaming!

I've been playing Talisman since the original came out in the early 1980's. While my preference - out of comfortable familiarity - is the original, the modern streamlined version is just as good and certainly removes the hours of rules conflicts that inevitably arise.

The computer version does this one better by enforcing a standardized ruleset, making games last (usually) less than an hour and a half. The computer's turns can be sped up, too, improving game speed even more.

Purists will enjoy the classic rules while people who find the basic rules too hard can improve their characters through progressive upgrades. Numerous achievements also offer arbitrary if fun goals along the way.

Faithful recreation of the 4th Edition Talisman board game, and great fun to boot. Recent improvements to the online multiplayer code have made for much smoother gaming against human opponents, and many more expansions have been announced which will keep this game fresh for years to come.

Huge variety of characters and strategies are key to this random-fest, where you can play nice or be a real backstabbing SOB when encountering fellow adventurers, this game is simply great fun!

Now it's on PC I don't have to worry about that.

To buy or not to buy. If you have ever played Talisman the board game before you already know the answer. However if you havn't and you like fairly long games that have a progressive character turn base style, then you will like this game. I have played the board game for going on 20 years now and have all the boards and expansions from the version 2 line and love them. Many a roleplayer has played this game and in my opinion is one of the best and detailed board games out there.

The Digital Edition of the classic Talisman board game does manage to recreate the experience pretty well, but bugs, glitches, crashes, network instability, and lack of content reflect poorly on the whole.

What does work? The graphics are decent, without being stellar. They get the art style across but the colors aren't vivid and lively as they are with the physical game. The game mechanics are solid, and there are many house rules to adapt Talisman to your preferences. Expansions are available, including one expansion board. Playing with friends online is so much more fun... but...

What doesn't work? Bugs that break the rules. Glitches that can lock up the game or force things that shouldn't happen. Poorly programmed AI that doesn't play the game well and sometimes is oblivious to things like their alignment changing (ie. now neutral characters still trying to do evil things). The spell system is very clunky and mistakes mean you don't get to use your spells or the game uses it incorrectly and you can't cancel. Multiplayer crashes a lot - when you can get back into the game, it inevitably locks up for everyone involved and you have to start over. While extra content is there, it is slow to be released and is mostly of the nickel and dime variety. Without at least one major expansion, the content in the base game will get stale quickly. Introducing major DLC also means introducing new bugs and glitches to your game.

Bottom line is this... For a discounted price, it's a nice bit of nostalgia for people who already know and play Talisman. I can't recommend multiplayer at this point, which is a huge disappointment. If you're new to the game, watch some Lets Play videos of the real thing instead... and if you're still keen on Talisman, give this a shot but know about the shortcomings beforehand.
For the average off the street gamer, I can't give this a reliable thumbs up until all the glitches, bugs, and network issues are fixed.

One of the best boardgame-to-PC adaptations I've seen in years! I would happily recommend this to anyone, regardless of whether one was a fan of the original tabletop Talisman.

Talisman: Digital Edition has HUGE replay value, owing to the random nature and variety of card draws, and the large assortment of character classes available. Each class allows (and often requires) you to approach the game in a different way. You can also customize various game rules before starting up a new game, which adds to the variety and replayability.

The DLC is also strongly recommended. Each expansion adds a massive number of new enemies, events, items, classes, and additional rules. The DLC in this game is very definitely worth every penny!

First off I hate Games Workshop and their unscrupulous buisness practices over the past few years. However not knowing they aquired Talisman IP when I purchased it, I do not regret that purchase. They know how to make excellent functioning video games. Dawn of war was great, blood bowl as well, and now Talisman. A faithful conversion from Board game to Video Game, its better in many ways to the board game in that turns fly by without needing to restack the deck you all knocked over or losing cards to the floor. It streamlines everything that needed streamlining and was faithful to everything needing to be faithful. They did good.

If you enjoy the boardgame this will appeal to you, but:

I can not recommend to buy it.

At the moment (Oct. 2014):
- Gamebreaking bugs (Targeting of spells, followers who refuse to use their skill correctly, game Mechanics/activated abilities repeating endlessly instead of working only one time)
- AI slow to move
- UI that hinders more than it is helping
- online quits destabilize the game

If they fix this, it might become close to the real boardgame.
But so far the developers seem more interested in producing DLC even while the main game is riddled with bugs.
Read a little in the bugforum!
Might give you a broader view of the game.

This game isnt bad for a little casual game. Though I heavily recommend playing it with friends otherwise it could be boring with just AI. But dont get me wrong! It can still be fun alone, but more fun with friends.

I like the network ability to play with friends, however you can also do local multiplayer which is nice (Same computer). My favorite is how nicely this works on my Windows 8.1 tablet. Works flawlessly with touch controls (I think the game was designed with touch in mind it works that well).

If you're not a fan of what basically is a turn-based fantasy boardgame / cardgame, this game isnt for you. If you like that stuff, I recommend checking this out.

This game is a lot of fun. I have only played the board game once before, but it is great to have a online version of the game.

However, I have never been able to get through an entire online game without someone's client crashing, booting players from the game and having them replaced by AI with no way to return. This is extremely frustrating when you are 30+ minutes into a game, and you have to start over.

For this, I do not recommend this game until this issue is fixed.

In the meantime, the local mode does allow people to play in the same room, in a hot seat style.
