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.

After putting +100 hours in this game, i decided to write my first review, to hopefully raise awareness to this amazing tabletop.

Talisman is great for fantasy lovers and offers lots of diferent heros with different abilities to play as, which is one of my favourite features in a game. All the heros are fun, some more powerful than others, but every one of them can win if you manage to use its abilities to its full potential.

Although there is some skill involved in this game, most of the player's performance is driven by luck. Preety much all actions (movement, combat, encounters) are defined/influenced by the dice rolls. This means that no matter how experienced you are, you can get destroyed by a noob who installed the game 10 minutes prier, which can be frustrating at times.

Another thing worth noting is that there are lots of possibilities for turning the tide in the middle of the game. This means that even if you're losing completely and the other players have much better stats than you, theres always a chance one of them will suddenly turn into a toad (and therefore leaving all objects/followers available to pickup) and allowing you to get all his stuff. Or maybe someone is about to enter the Crown of Comand (the place you need to reach to win the game) and you cast a spell on them and force him to loose his Talisman, the one object that allows them to get there. This triggers a lot of people, but i personally think it adds a lot to the game, and even though this stuff has happened to me numerous times, i end up having a laugh about it because at the end of the day, the game is fun. Just note that there's never a guaranteed win/loss, and you can always hope for a comeback or fear your demise!

Expansions make the game a whole lot better, and the more you have, the more varied the game becomes and the more ways there are to make your way up to the top!

Pros:
-Lots of fun with friends
-Wide variety of heros
-Playable on a toaster
-Great to play at work (Tab in when it's your turn)
-Unpredictable
-Amazing when you have access to expansions
-You dont have to purchase all the expansions in order to enjoy them provided that you play online with a player that owns them!

Cons:
-Very luck driven
-Games are super long
-Not as enjoyable if you dont have access to expansions

A fun and entertaining game, however the AI is complete and utter, bull. I can not stress this idea enough. I spent half an hour trying to kill the only remaining Swashbuckler in a 1 vs. 5 AI game. He would not simply die. What i mean by this, is that he would honestly get down to 1 life point remaining and then miraculously roll the die into the perfect number to land on a square in which he could heal. It did not also help that he had a card that gave him a minimum of 1 gold at all times. The game finally ended when the AI moved him into the most inner ring where he had no methods of self healing.

Overall it's a great game and lives up to the experiences i've had through the actual irl gameboard. However this game requires a lot of patience. I don't reccommend this game if you don't like waiting forever to end the game. (If the turns are slow, you can fix that in the advaced settings.)

Sadly the game comes up short.... Only due to the cheating AI computer in single player. Most games you will lose due to miracle play by the AI computer players. Everything goes their way... Its almost comical. Aside from that, the game reminds me of the Dungeon! board game. It is fun to play, and addictive. The expansions do add to the fun, along with the online multiplayer, and leveling system. If you can deal with the cheating its worth a try, though I am glad I bought it on sale.

Pro vs Contra

Pro
*Digital version of the classic GW board game.
*You can now play with up to 6 players in one game.
* Cross plattform gaming.
*Added 3 free copies to give away for every Gold buyer
*If you play online with friends/familiy you can/will get your fun (if your game will not disconnected or crash).
*Nice artwork
*If you are a Talisman fan, then this is your way to buy it and i suggest you just ignore the contra points.


Contra
*Slow development (3-5 months for a new DLC is a long time, i paid the full season price more then 2 years ago and i only can say that the development is slowing down with every new DLC, there is no ETA when the final game will be released)
*Massiv bugs, dont get me wrong bugs get fixed (from time to time), but this often ends in new bugs, before i released my last review i was a long time beta tester (and naming the issues of support and constant fails with updates was the reason why .i was removed from Nomoad) that helped for free to lure the bugs. Well iam sure that i have to point out that 9/10 of all my latest games shows bugs (some game breaking some minors ones).
*MP (public games) is most of the time a place for leavers and quitters.
*The ai is improved compared with the one years ago, but still not worth to buy this game for a single player. You only can cheat the game (you add runestones to the ai and give them a big advantage)
*They changed there Season Pass conduct, and released one DLC (The Shaman) without giving it for free to the former buyers.
* A constant dropping number of people playing online on Steam

Finally i have to note that ca 400 of my hours where used for beta gaming, and as a long time supported and as a former member of most of the groups and even the founder of the german group. Iam disappointed of Nomads behavior, they deliver game breaking bug after game breaking issue, to many to name them, and when you get upset and rage about it, they blame you and say you cost them money.....

Just read (from Developer) that ALL the dice rolls are pre-determined when the game is created. Kind of regretting my purchase now. Glad I got it on the cheap during last sale. Small victories.

http://steamcommunity.com/app/247000/discussions/0/523898291509368486/

"At the start of a new game, a huge list of random numbers between 1 and 6 is generated. That list of numbers is used for the whole game, in the order that they are determined at this point.

Those numbers will be rolled in that order no matter what is happening."

I would of expected them to use procedural number generation and generate the dice rolls when the player rolls the dice. "They" claim it is to curb cheating and being able to close the game and re-open it in hopes of getting a new, more favorable roll. FFS, really? Personally, I attribute it to lazy programmers. This is just on man's opinion, YMMV (maybe, might not though).

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.

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.

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

I Give this game a 7/10

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.

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.

It still needs some fixes, but honestly... why so negative reviews? The game is awesome and we are getting more and more content. I just can't wait till we get The Blood Moon :) Because of this game I'm buing more and more board expansions to play in real life with my friends. This isn't game for everyone (people rolling 1 will rage quit :D ) , but you should give it a try.

Really can't recommend this game at the minute. Bought it for myself and 5 of my friends but the constant start-up issues and DC's/crashes make the game unplayable. Dev's need to focus on making the game workable and consistant before releasing anymore expansions. Quality over Quantity please.

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.

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.

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.

After putting +100 hours in this game, i decided to write my first review, to hopefully raise awareness to this amazing tabletop.

Talisman is great for fantasy lovers and offers lots of diferent heros with different abilities to play as, which is one of my favourite features in a game. All the heros are fun, some more powerful than others, but every one of them can win if you manage to use its abilities to its full potential.

Although there is some skill involved in this game, most of the player's performance is driven by luck. Preety much all actions (movement, combat, encounters) are defined/influenced by the dice rolls. This means that no matter how experienced you are, you can get destroyed by a noob who installed the game 10 minutes prier, which can be frustrating at times.

Another thing worth noting is that there are lots of possibilities for turning the tide in the middle of the game. This means that even if you're losing completely and the other players have much better stats than you, theres always a chance one of them will suddenly turn into a toad (and therefore leaving all objects/followers available to pickup) and allowing you to get all his stuff. Or maybe someone is about to enter the Crown of Comand (the place you need to reach to win the game) and you cast a spell on them and force him to loose his Talisman, the one object that allows them to get there. This triggers a lot of people, but i personally think it adds a lot to the game, and even though this stuff has happened to me numerous times, i end up having a laugh about it because at the end of the day, the game is fun. Just note that there's never a guaranteed win/loss, and you can always hope for a comeback or fear your demise!

Expansions make the game a whole lot better, and the more you have, the more varied the game becomes and the more ways there are to make your way up to the top!

Pros:
-Lots of fun with friends
-Wide variety of heros
-Playable on a toaster
-Great to play at work (Tab in when it's your turn)
-Unpredictable
-Amazing when you have access to expansions
-You dont have to purchase all the expansions in order to enjoy them provided that you play online with a player that owns them!

Cons:
-Very luck driven
-Games are super long
-Not as enjoyable if you dont have access to expansions

If you like fantasy board games this is the game for you, the only issues i have is there is quite a delay on selecting things and it can get buggy at times but overall it's pretty good, and the DLC is reasonably priced.

This game is underrated. I enjoy nothing more than screwing my friends. Buy the reaper expansion asap and turn the 1 rolls in to insane laughter!

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.
