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 isnt enjoyable without the expansions so if you want to buy it buy at least 2 expansions with it. Vanilla just seems boring,. If you dont like rng then i dont recommender it. And the game has a little balance issues but if you are playing with friends than you can just play without the overpowered weapons/characters so its ok.

I love the game. I had the paper one, back in my childhood and now I really enjoy this game. More and more stuff is coming (more addons), which is good, but for each you have to pay :(
I have this game for quite long time and from the beginning it was very buggy, sometimes almost impossible to play. Recently they managed to fix most of them and game no longer hungs on my computer, so I can play.
I recommend this game to everyone who likes board games.

Do NOT buy this game unless you have freinds ready to play with you, willing to commit to a hours long game. The computer is a terrible cheater, and will work with itself to target you and strengthen the weaker characters, all for the sole purpose of making YOU lose.

When you don't want to shell out the hundreds of dollars for a paper board game you are more than tempted to try the digital version. Saves some space, some money and is still terrific.

This game is the perfect example of emergent gameplay done right. In one game, that forest might be the home of a friendly fairy that grants wishes to the forces of light, while in another, it might be the lair of a terrifying dragon.

Using multiple decks of cards with different effects and uses, you can craft the story of an evil leprachaun, who loses all his money and ends up in jail after a night of drunken revelry, or the tale of a lone bounty hunter with an enchanted flail, on the trail of a powerful sorcereress who stole his magic shield and destroyed the academy that trained his superhuman fighting skills, finally clashing at the highest peaks of the world.

In another of my games, my Bard character managed to ensnare a fire breathing dragon with his music. In another, my alchemist discovered a bag that always had an extra gold piece inside whenever you ran out of money, with his abilities, I managed to turn this unlimited supply of gold into unlimited magical power. If you immerse yourself into the experience and roleplay it, stories build themselves right in front of your eyes.

Every game is different, and with every expansion adding new locations, decks, characters and everything else, It can only get better.

The AI isn't too bad either, I've seen characters doing crazy stuff like casting the offensive wind blast spell on themselves to fling across the map so that they're closer to where they need to be.

If I could change one thing, it'd be the introduction of a way to turn off the victory conditions of the game, sometimes you want these random storied worlds of yours to live on longer.

Exact copy of the boardgame. The same people who enjoy the boardgame will enjoy the computer version. Unfortunately people tend to drop out of live games - but they do that with the boardgame as well.

This game if fun to play if you have a few hours to kill. Really interesting card interactions and classes. Winning is ultra satisfying. Just know that game can get quite lengthy with more than 4 players.
