The Nether Realm - OUT NOW!

The Nether Realm expansion pack has been added. The Nether Realm adds a new deck of extremely challenging Nether cards, and three new alternative endings.

New Features -
Alternative Ending selection - you can now select which endings will be used in a game. When creating a game, if you switch on the Hidden or Revealed Ending house rules, a new button will appear above the rules called Alternate Endings. Press this to view every ending that can be used and toggle them on (green) or off (red) to add or remove them from the possible endings for that game. You can only choose endings that match the type you've switched on in the house rules, for example the Warlock Quests ending cannot be included in the game if you have Hidden Endings switched on because it is a Revealed Ending.

Windows taskbar icon alerts you when it's your turn - a much requested feature from those who like to play Talisman at work (like we do).

Visibility of online games in progress has returned.

General Fixes -
Online invites work on MacOSX.
Various fixes to online stability and game setup.
Cutpurse now discards correctly.
Enrich spell wasn't discarding if it was used and then a Warlock Quest (deliver gold) completed.
Fixed knowing what the last discarded spell was if a game is quit and resumed.
Toads escaping from Jail were sometimes so excited to be free that they rolled the die for movement.
Correct Warlock Quest card shown if you are attempting to replace a quest gained from rolling.
The Weakness spell would become unavailable after the first attack roll.
Fixed a card disappearing if Stasis spell was cast on it twice.
Tweaks to the auto-zoom feature, so it happens less often.
Loyal Companion card was being left on its space if taking a pet meant completing a quest.
Fixed having to ditch another object if you used the Treasure Chest when at your carry limit.
Fixed when spells are discarded if the Elementalist changes his Craft so that he has too many.
Fixed being able to use the Panhandler if you're sharing a Jail cell with another character and you fail to escape.
Fixed having to choose a roll result if you rolled doubles with the Orb of Destiny.
Invisibility Potion wasn't always working correctly.
Disabled the 'attract mode' that appears when the game loads, as it was causing nasty bugs later on.
Removed some full stops.
Armour was being used before a fight, if Metamorph had been cast to change the opponent.
Bounty Hunter could still change standoffs to victories even if something had fought in his place.
Fixed the Amazon losing extra lives if she redoes a battle against an Assassin.
Spells weren't being discarded correctly if you completed a Warlock Quest after buying from the Sorcerer's Square.
The wrong number of Objects were being taken when the Thieves' Guild ending was in play.
Text fixes, including Wanted Poster names.
Fixed an issue with the Gambler using the Luckstone.
Fixed being stuck in a situation where you only had Objects you couldn't ditch, but you were over your carry limit.
Fixed an issue where the Reflection spell wouldn't work against a spell cast by the Grumpy Wizard.
Blizzard was staying in effect for too long if a character was killed during the two rounds and Bloodbath mode was on.

AI Fixes -
Spiteful Imp usage improved.
AI characters are less likely to visit the Enchantress when they have more to lose.
Tweaked the AI's recognition of Warlock Quest difficulty.
Improved usage of the Invoke Favour spell.
AI characters will take Wanted Posters from the Wanted List encounter.
AI better recognises that Ekor and Shiver Nymph will run away when encountered.
Fixed the AI using the Mercenary Follower when fighting an enemy which copies their stats.
AI sometimes gave the Tavern Maid their best Objects when poured a drink.
AI sometimes gave up its best Follower to the Leper.
AI Toad looks turns ahead when deciding where to move to.
AI is more likely to bribe the Bandit if the fight is too tough.
Minstrels weren't always choosing not to fight Dragons when the fight was too tough.
AI recognises that a 10 result at the Temple is useless if there are no Talismans in the Talisman deck.
Improved usage of the Shatter spell.
The AI is less likely to put Trinkets into containers, unless it's worried about someone taking them.
AI sometimes used a Summon spell and then used a Potion to raise its own stats.
AI sometimes used a Potion of Strength before psychic combat.
AI is more likely to not use weapons against Crawling Slime.
Improved Fireball spell usage.
AI won't buy alignment based Wanted Posters if there are no characters of that alignment in the game.

Many thanks to the beta testers who helped us with this expansion, it's much appreciated.

New Character Bundles Arriving!

If you haven't purchased all of the extra characters yet, now is a great time to grab what you're missing.

Valve have very kindly allowed us to put some character bundles together, which offer savings on anything you don't own. There is no way to 'pick and choose' which characters to buy, as there is no system for that, so we've created themed bundles as suggested on this forum a while ago.

For each bundle, you effectively get 3 for the price of 2, or 33% off. So, if you don't own any of the 3, you'll get the 3 for the usual price of 2. If you own 2 already and are just missing 1, you'll get 33% off that 1 character.

Here are the bundles -

Magical Ladies - Illusionist, Apprentice Mage and Black Witch
http://store.steampowered.com/bundle/326/

From Mysterious Lands - Genie, Goblin Shaman and Shape Shifter
http://store.steampowered.com/bundle/328/

The Tricksters - Jester, Courtesan and Gambler
http://store.steampowered.com/bundle/329/

Light and Dark - Martyr, Exorcist and Devil's Minion

“Talisman: Digital Edition is the kind of game that you can spend hundreds of hours playing and is for all intents and purposes a solid port of the popular board game. - Vincent Paone of Dad's Gaming Addiction”

About This Game

Talisman Digital Edition - The Magical Quest Game for 1 to 6 players.

The officially licensed multiplayer version of the classic fantasy adventure board game, Talisman.

In Talisman Digital Edition, there are 14 characters a player can control, from the heroic Warrior to the powerful Sorceress. In this perilous adventure, players battle it out to journey across a dangerous land and be the first to claim the Crown of Command, a magical artefact with the power to destroy all rivals and make the bearer the true ruler of the kingdom. On your travels, you will need strength, courage and some good dice rolls to survive the dangers you face and beat your opponents to the centre of the board.

Features -


  • Multiplayer modes for up to 6 players.
  • Play against AI opponents.
  • 14 characters to choose from.
  • 17 powerful spells to cast.
  • Many expansions available post-release.
  • Detailed, interactive tutorial.
  • Based on the Revised 4th Edition by Fantasy Flight Games

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Talisman?
Talisman is a board game in which you move around the board building up your character’s strength and magic power by battling monsters, finding treasures, completing quests and trying to be the first player to reach the centre space – the Crown of Command.

How is Talisman: Digital Edition different to Talisman: Prologue?
Talisman: Prologue is a single-player only game in which you tried to complete a series of challenges using the rules of Talisman. Talisman: Digital Edition is the full board game experience for up to 6 players, using the same rules as the board game.

Can I play dirty?
That’s at the very core of Talisman! Cast spells at other players to make them miss turns! Steal from them! Turn them into toads! Send powerful allies to do your fighting for you!

How replayable is the game?
The emergent nature of the game means that every game will tell its own tale. The board starts with just the playing pieces and builds up to become a land filled with terrible danger and fabulous treasure! As you move around the board, you must make careful decisions about where to travel as each space can become more dangerous or more helpful as the game progresses. To help you get around, players can use things like teleporting, magic portals and fate, which allows you to re-roll your dice to get different results.

How long is a game of Talisman?
The physical board game can take 2-5 hours with 6 players, but our digital version cuts that down drastically, with an offline 6 player game typically taking no more than 1 hour. Offline and online games can be saved and resumed at any time so your adventures can take as long as you like! We’ve also added some features which decrease the length of games – House rules and Runestone cards. House rules change the basic rules slightly to speed-up the game and Runestone cards, exclusive to this digital edition, give characters extra abilities and allow them to become very powerful much quicker, making for shorter games.

Is there a hotseat mode?
Yes! Look your opponents in the eyes as you face them in deadly combat or sneak up from the shadows and steal their favourite items! All of the fun and social enjoyment of the physical game is captured in the digital version, but with no setup time!

What’s included with the base game and are there expansions?
For the initial purchase, everything that you get with the physical board game is included – all of the characters, spells and adventure cards, plus a few bonuses we've added. Expansions will be added and the first six, The Reaper, The Frostmarch, The Dungeon, The Highland, The Sacred Pool and The City are available to purchase now. These add lots more spells, events, monsters, characters and alternative endings! Extra characters are also available to purchase, including rare characters from Talisman’s history.

This game with all the expansions is heads and tails better than playing the physical board game. So much fun with so little effort. If you had the physical game it would be very problematic just keeping the cards straight. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this version to anyone who enjoys TALISMAN. I only play "Race to the Crown" or Alternate Endings as the original ending is soooo freaking boring.

Great board/card game. I have this game on my android play store also. It's one of the "must have" board games in your collection. Nice and fast games if you're in a waiting room. Challenging too!

Sometimes crashes randomly. Hoping they will bug test more soon.

Fun, easy, D&D like game. This game is not overly complicated and is relatively fun, it does not have to be played all in one sitting, and runs smooth on older computers or computers not uptodate with modern graphics cards. I highly recommend this game to anyone who likes boardgames.

Hey everyone and this is my review about the game!

This is a Card Board game.


Interface/Menu/Settings

You are able to change the Sound volume by 10 everytime.
You are able to change the Music Volume by 10 everytime.
There are some Different languages available.
You can play fullscreen, You have to press that "Expand button in the options"
You can play Local or against he AI.
There is online mode. (with a small group of people playing.) (You can make private or online lobbies and no port forward required).
Able to make different save and you can rename this.

About the game.


There are different characters. Each character has their own powers. You are able to choose Random too. There is a tutorial ingame. The object of the game is that you have to reach the middle of the board and kick other players out of this. Each character has their own set of Health/fighting power/Gold/Fate/craft and abilities. Some even could have an alignment to be Neutral/Evil and good. You have to fight enemies and get followers.
There are cards to make things better or worse for you. You have to make your character powerful in order to defeat the bridge boss (unless you have found another way to enter inside the middle area). Winning from an enemy character gives you the option to steal 1 item, take gold or let them lose one life point.

MANY CHARACTERS,
Killing enemies gives you their card and may be used to make yourself powerful if having enough of these cards.
You are able to speed up turns from the AI in the ADVANCED OPTIONS menu.
Game is sort of addictive.
Music soundtrack is good.
Calming game.
There is a pause button.

Other things.

This game gives me the "jumanji" Feelings from the movie.
The game at the bottom will glow yellow whenever it is your turn.
Random AI like to choose the same characters in a game.
Game feel sometimes rigged and could give you a nice disadvantage.

-------------------

As the Germans would say, "Na Ja". Games like this shows the flaws in the Steam review system. I'm going to have to give it a recommendation, simply because it did entertain me for a couple of hours, but however much fun with the family a board game like allows at Christmas, playing on a screen is just boring. For the uninitiated let me explain.

For the first couple of hours I was enthralled. Learning all the rules, all the magical cards and their powers, all the items and followers. I thought I found something really deep to get my teeth stuck into. YAY! 4 hours in, I come to the damning and sad realisation. I am playing monopoly, in a D&D setting... but it's still monopoly. Aka, roll a dice over and over until you win or lose. The lack of strategy and the high percentage of luck mean that the hour long games that are needed to complete Talisman feel like little more than flipping a coin over and over to see who gets more tails than the other.

So 5/10 from me... but if you see this for a buck and want a few hours novelty, it could be worth it!

This is a very good way to test Talisman out and see if you like it before purchasing it as a board game. The physical game is more expensive, especially if you end up buying all the other characters and expansions, so I would definitely suggest buying everything on steam and testing it all out to see what you like and don't like. It is also makes the rules very clear opposed to the physical copy, which makes you guess at some rules because of wording. All in all, I would suggest getting this game if you are at all interested in buying the physcal version. You may even like this version more, as you can always join tables online if you want to play but your friends are unavailable. It is sometimes buggy and won't load characters the first time you start it up and friends join, but that problem goes away the second time you start the game. I own both the physcial and PC version of this game, and though I prefer the physcial board game, I do enjoy this thoroughly.

The nerdiest boardgame I ever played in real life, also the funnest. I remember pulling an all nighter with friends with a couple a beers and trying to figure out how to reach the crown of command. So I found this digital version, and I gotta say I was extremly satisfied with it and had a lot of fun, both in single player (friends in the same computer) and of course online. The thing is - there aren't people playing online anymore. I hope for an update or something to revive this gem, I know i'm not the only one who enjoys a good long match. I still recommend it, buy it at low price and join the community!

Sticks very closely to the original board game. They've done well transferring it to a digital format, and after playing a few games you'll understand it near-perfectly. Only problem is that the DLC is being released at a very slow pace.

Awesome! A faithful reproduction of a classic board game. The community is kind of small though, that would be the only
downside, it can be hard to find a table. The AI is good enough to play a good match. Fate is unfortunatly not always on your side. But with a group of friends this is one of the best board games ever!

If you don't own this digital or the IRL board game get it for your next game night and try and keep from buying all the expansions.

Fun game, but online play is too failure prone to enjoy.

I'm a big fan of the board game, and single player mode works fine. Unfortunately the online play constantly crashes, kicks players for no reason, and fails to load. This has been a consistent experience throughout all of my friends who play the game as well.

If you like Talisman, this is a great adaption of the board game! The appeal of this game as a digital copy of the board game is twofold: The computer manages all the fidely cards and components (plus no clean up or set up), and this digital edition is WAY cheaper than than the physical game. Playing games with AI can be great too if you have no friends.

If you have no idea what Talisman is but are intrested in this game, let me lay it out for you: Talisman is a RPG in a box. You pick one of a million characters with unique abilites and attributes and race against other characters to reach the 'crown of command', a game space that slowly kills all the other players. If you kill everyone else, you win. The thing about the crown is that its locked away in an inhosptable wasteland that your weak character will not be able to reach right away. As a result, you gotta level up, fighting monsters, encountering events, and PVPing other players. Awesome stuff.

This game is not without its faults though. This game is extremely RNG based. Everything is based on dice rolls. There is strategy in the game, sure, but alot of the time so many random things you can't control are happpening that you kind of have to just roll with it. This is essentially the heart and soul of the game, so if this is unappealing to you, this game might not be for you. Now personally, normally I hate games that are overly based on luck, but Talisman is great because it never pigeon holes you into situations. Every turn you have a choice on which direction to go, where on the board(s) to travel, who to interact with, etc and these choices give you an illusion of freedom and often a way to blame yourself for your bad luck. Went into a cave and got ♥♥♥♥ed by a dragon at level one? Should have gone to town, your opponent would have got the dragon instead. Now, this game does have a 'fate' system that lets you reroll dice, giving you some control over your luck, but it can be hard sometimes to know when is best to reroll and sometimes you can just reroll bad rolls again(dice rolls are seeded at the begining of the game, so reloading doesnt work).

This game does a great job of always giving you something to do and work towards, and the various expansions give lots of variety and alternative scenarios. If you get this game I highly recommend some of the expansions (get the season pass on sale to get all future expansions cheap), specifically the reaper and the corner boards.

Before rounding out this review I just want to provide a shout out to the company that made this digital adaption, nomad games. Originally I thought this company was just porting this game from the ios and wouldn't care for the quality of the game post release. How wrong I was. Not only do they participate on the forums frequently and respond to posters, but they have even developed and distributed free content based on customer critisism. This is very rare these days and exremely praiseworthy.

Objectively Talisman isn't the greatest game ever made, but I seriously love this game regardless. It may be luck heavy but the experience of travelling around the board, collecting loot and getting stronger before racing to the end against other players is great. Laugh at your friends as the dice ♥♥♥♥ them, then cry out in amazement as they get the luckiest card draws, but most of all enjoy the ride and the emerging narrative that the game provides.

First the meta critic review is unfair. It came out when this game was still in early access. All of the bugs have been fixed for the most part. It runs smooth and is the mirror image of the actual board game...which I own. This game is a solid 9 outta ten. If you love board games...this is the game for you.

Full of bugs, content releases getting slower and slower. Season pass owners got a promise of every physical expansion making it into the game, instead other games (Horus Heresy) are being released or ports (Android, iOS, Mac, now even PS4...) scheduled. Did I mention bugs?

I am a big fan of the boardgame ever since I was a kid. I wanted this video game for a long time.

I like the game but it has flaws. Here are some of them

-It is way more stable then when it was early accsess, but there are still plenty of glitches to around especsially with spells and new characters.

-There are alot of characters that I recognize and there are alot of overpowered munchkin characters that brake the game. It is good that you have the option to only allow core characters, but I would like if there would be an option to disallow certain characters like the Martyr, Black Witch etc.

-I would like a workshop, so people could make custom boards, cards, characters etc. Even tough there is alot of content released, I would enjoy for example a mod where you can replace the art with the original oldschol art.

-Even tough the game is a skill based game, there is alot of luck involved. At times it feels like you are playing the odds at poker. I like it but some might not.

At the end tough this is a solid boardgame adaptions, with some flaws, but its fun overall. If you are a fan of Fantasy themed board games like Hero Quest or Descent give this one a go.

Despite quite enjoying playing this game with friends if you're against the AI or random people online this game is the most frustrating thing on the planet... To win the game your character must stand at the Crown of Command where you get a chance to roll a dice, if you get 4, 5 or 6 every other player losses 1 life. I've just been stuck in a game for hours upon hours while a character with 8 life and a runeblade (Lets him heal 1 life whenever he kills something) stumbled around the board killing hoards of wolves, bears, bandits and anything else that he came across. Inevitably healing him up higher than the "game ending" spell could ever damage him.
Utterly ridiculous, boring and frustrating.

Best boardgame ever made imho and a pretty great digital implementation.

The base game (with no DLC) is decent but to really get a feel for whats offered you really need at least 1 expansion. Once you have all the expansions (sometimes there are sales but I bought mine at full price and I'm very happy) the game is just brilliant.

If you enjoy boardgames and a fantasy setting- You cannot go wrong here.

I'm just bummed I only found out about this game recently.

For the $15 dollar asking price of the base game I find the content to be severly lacking. The games length and nature can cause random grueling sections (I once spent 30 turns fighting a player on the end game tile, where he kept hitting my armor and my attack was too low to kill him), It could be possible that with all the DLC the game would have enough content to be fun, however i'm not willing to put in $60 bucks for a truck load of DLC that may or may not create a satisfying experience, not to mention that $75 for a digital board game feels, and is a fairly crazy asking price.
