About This Game

Talisman Prologue is an adaptation of the classic fantasy board game Talisman by Games Workshop. This version focuses on single player experience.

An epic tale of dice rolling and card drawing takes you on a quest throughout the land to rescue Princesses, slay Dragons and recover lost artefacts. Play through over 50 quests using the Talisman board game rules, and learn the special abilities of all of the characters.

It's important to note that this is NOT a multiplayer game based on Talisman, this is a reworking of the rule-set to allow solo players to experience Talisman in a different way.

Features -
  • 10 Characters
  • 50 Quests
  • Endless Re-playability
  • Includes 6 bonus characters - Leprechaun, Amazon, Minotaur, Vampire Hunter and Sage

The multi-player game, Talisman Digital Edition, is available separately on Steam and can be found HERE.

Talisman is an old board game which translates fairly well to the computer. This game was faithfully translated into the computer as Talisman: Digital Edition. Talisman Prologue is a single player version of that game. It is essentially a demo where you can attempt to complete various quests with different characters. If you are looking for a true Talisman experience, you should get Digital Edition instead.

So, I got this game for free through Humble Bundle... In a way, it's bizarre that this... thing, actually has a price, as it's effectively a demo for the full game. If you can't be arsed to make your way through the whole of this review, all you need to know is, this is a great way to make you realise how this game could be fun with friends, but not on your own, and not as it is.

Being older than I appear, and growing up in a time when Steam Sales would sound like magic beans rather than allowing me a way to convert pocket money into actual jollies, I would spend my time leafing through the back pages of White Dwarf, imagining what it would be like to be able to play the games contained within. One such was Talisman, and I spent a terrifying amount of time imagining what the fabled game would actually be like to play.

Now I know. I'm really glad my 12 year old self got that gift for free.

Should you pay for it? No. No. The game could potentially be fun with friends, and this version is fine for working out the mechanics of the actual game, which you are definitely not buying here. It's kind of astonishing they still charge you extra to buy the tutorial, although I have been informed it was originally released as a work in progress before the multiplayer was released. That still doesn't mean there is any point in paying for it now, and playing it alone seems desperately sad. I cannot imagine why anyone would benefit from playing this game rather than the main one.

This game is actually fun and pretty addictive, if you put a little more faith to it. I understand that you can get bad luck here and there and it might stress you out, but hell, in my point of view, I can enjoy playing this thing. I believe you can even make novel out of this game, and the stories are based on how the dices take you in your gameplay.

Oh, and I'm not going to talk about the price here. Because I got it free from giveaway. Hehe.

Talisman: Prologue is a RPG Board Game that require strategy in a single player experience. Decent cards, and dice rolling going on quest for a fun adventure.

the game itself is pretty good and fun.

but the "prologue" is nothing else than a demo .

so ... are you ready to pay for a demo ?
