Про цю гру

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.

Definitely a 'Prologue' (introduction) to the Talisman Digital Edition. Consider this to be a tutorial to the extreme, enough to be able to sell it seperately.

I consider it more of an occasional distraction, probably not one of those games that you feel like playing for hours on end...but one of those that you 'pull off of the shelf' here and there.

After playing Talisman Digital Edition, I will say that I did miss the quests. Ultimately, it could be cool to blend the two and introduce individual quests into the Digital Edition.

It seems that, at the least, Prologue will either be a quick distraction, or it will be one of those that you will enjoy here and there. (Obviously there is the possibility that it may just 'click' and it is played to completion).

In other words, for the price ... not too bad. I enjoyed it so far, but for me it is here and there. It would seem hard to go wrong if you can get it in a bundle or, as currently under a couple bucks. (I'm buying a couple extra as gifts ... can't go too wrong for that price and maybe they will go for the Digital Edition and we can do multiplayer...)

I'm a big talisman fan and was happy to see it! but after I played it for some time I got bored. It was singleplayer. no multiplayer options at ALL. Another thing I hate is that there is no save feature. Can you amagine playing talisman with no friends, in ONE sitting!? I can't! They have more charecters which is slightly more enjoyable, but I never end up using them. With the price, EVEN IF IT IS SMALL is not a good deal. this gets a 3/10

Quicker game play than the full Digital Edition
Useful for learning the rules and character nuances in Talisman: Digital Edition


Can't save the game. They definitely need to fix this. (Seriously, Nomad, what are you thinking here?)
Game play can get extremely redundant with only one character on the board.


Worth buying when it goes on sale, if:

* You already know you really want it
* The Digital Edition confuses you and you want to practice the nuances of the game
* You're a compulsive collector like me
* You're not going to bother with the Digital Edition anyway

If none of those apply, then I'd say don't bother.

An excellent way to learn Talisman. Get used to the game, learn about the different characters you can choose and how they differ, and generally get your skills and enthusiasim up to the point where you are ready to get the full game (Talisman Digital Edition). That is what worked for me - learning the game via the Prologue edition, totally getting into the full game along with the expansions, and then also adding the Talisman Board game along with the Reaper and Frostmarch expansins to my board game library. For me Prologue was well worth the modest price.

Note: This is/was one of the Steam products with the Data Execution Prevention BS - a real major bummer . This issue, although eventually resolved, resulted in reconsideration of whether this amount of stress was worth sticking with STEAM. I am still here and I enjoy most of my STEAM games, but that was overall my worst expereince with STEAM and a game bought from them.

A friend gifted this to me, and for that I'm obviously grateful to him...we and a few other friends used to play the original (well, 2nd edition) board game TO DEATH back in the 90s, and more recently, another one of these friends rebought the ♥♥♥♥ing thing (4th edition), allowing me to get just a teeny weeny bit "sick" of it all over again. Ah, memories! I must admit to still being fascinated to see how this would all translate into a VIDEO GAME, however, so while this is merely the single player "prologue" to the multiplayer version (which has since been released), I must say I was quite impressed with how extraordinarily faithful the whole adaptation appears to be.

I say "appears to be", as I've only played so much of it, but enough to confidently opine that apart from reducing the epic "get-to-the-middle-region-first-and-murder-the-♥♥♥♥-out-of-the-other-players-to-achieve-world-domination" mega-quest of the board game to a number of small, character-specific mini-missions, it's, well...it's pretty much the board game. Or at least a limited version of it, as this particular game doesn't have anywhere near all the characters, expansions, etc etc...though to the best of my understanding, the fully-blown Talisman: Digital Edition does or at least will do over time, and assuming its objective is to be as slavishly faithful to the source material as this prologue game, I can't see that anyone looking for a video game adaptation of Talisman is liable to be disappointed. As for me, personally, right at this moment in time...I might have to give such a prospect a miss for now, not least of all because of that friend I still have who's only half-a-suburb away who, unlike myself, is probably up for reliving our wild 'n' reckless glory days of rolling dice and shuffling cards at relatively short notice. I'm a bit over it all, truth be told, and have more than adequately sated my sentimentality for the time being, so I think I'll ♥♥♥♥ away my time with other, less painfully overfamiliar games (be they of a digital or more tactile nature; I still play board games, just not this one when I can help it).

Back to the Prologue for a moment, though. This particular product would no doubt provide an adequate "training ground" for those too daunted to leap straight into the multiplayer game, though I can't imagine you'd get much replay value out of it beyond that. Still, it's cheap enough, especially in a sale, and if you've never played a board game in any way, shape or form - or at least not one more complicated than Snakes 'N' Ladders or Trivial Pursuit - then this may give you an idea what dyed-in-the-wool nerds USED to do before video games progressed beyond one bunch of ugly pixels shooting at another bunch of ugly pixels with little dots or dashes for ammunition.

Verdict: 7.5/10.

Прежде всего стоит сказать, что это - очень хорошее воплощение - но настольной игры. Причём игры достаточно простой, так что геймплей ощущается как бедноватый. Ну, и сама игра, я так полагаю, изначально рассчитывалась на несколько игроков, что, естественно, тоже сказывается. Фактически, всё, что вы делаете - это кидаете кубики, ходите по карте из двух дюжин клеток, да тянете карты на каждой клетке, пока не добьётесь поставленной цели. В текущем - соло - варианте у каждого класса пять разных квестов, которые, по всей видимости, прежде всего и рассчитаны на то, чтобы дать понять, как же этими классами играть в многопользовательском варианте. Собственно, игра и не скрывается, называя себя "Прологом". Уверен, что в мультиплейерном варианте (который тоже есть на Стиме) играть гораздо веселее. Впрочем, если рассматривать Talisman: Prologue как спокойный, хоть и несколько хаотичный пасьянс, эта игра вполне неплоха.

A subpar offering, worth it possible for a dollar or so, but the time investment isn't worth it unless you are inerested in table top games.

Decent adaptation of the boardgame, but being single player only renders it a bit boring after a few games. Head over to talisman:digital edition for the real game which is great.

If available cheap or if you get it free by buying the gold pack, it can be a good introduction to the game for children.

Totally got tricked into buying this. DO NOT PURCHASE!! You are probably looking for Talisman the full game, which is ANOTHER game in Steam. This is just the Prologue and is a horrible SINGLE PLAYER boardgame where you play by yourself, rolling dice and getting high on your own all alone. Totally boring~! The real game is the other Talisman where you can have multiplayers. P.S: The contents are also really limited for this edition...

This single player Talisman uses the whole game board but it makes you play the game over and over to fulfill different quests. It's MMO grinding except the quests don't actually give you anything of value except achievements. I find that very, very cheap of the devs and outright offensive, really. Instead of giving something of value they just deliver grindy content.
The value is for people who are really into the game, like me, who want to examine different strategies. I'm really good at the game as it is, having beaten everyone and their brother on my real life gameboard, but when I want to reassure myself I load up a random character class and spend an hour leveling it in this game until I can tapdance through victory. That gets old really fast, though, and there isn't much left for me to learn.
The Prologue is simply a very light story to introduce you to the grinding. It pretends that each character has a cool backstory.

Would be more fun if it had more going on than achievements for playing it over and over.

Didnt really enjoy this game. I am a big boardgame & Talisman fan but felt this very game was very wooden, lacked any sort of real spirit or depth and was no fun to play. It it wasnt part of a bundle deal I would have felt very let down having paid full price. Not worth buying.

This is something that should have been included in the basic game or as a demo. It should be free to play. It's quite boring actually. Don't buy this.

This game would be great with achievements, or a leaderboard, or multi-platform support, but it doesn't have those things so I can't recommend it. I had a crack at it one day and I like the style of this RPG-esque board game, but board games are for when you're bored. I wasn't bored enough to beat it.

Talisman: Prologue is an interesting game. It's a singleplayer "version" of Talisman, that existed pretty much to pay for development of the "full" multiplayer game: Talisman: Digital Edition.

While that might seem cheap, it's actually beneficial. This version gives you lots of "Quests" to do, beyond simply finishing the game. One Quest may have you killing the ghosts of your former victims, another tasks you to take a certain character to a certain place, so it's perfect for a lazy half hour. Plus each Character has their own unique set of Quests, usually based around their various abilities. It's a really clever way of teaching their abilities in fact. Gameplay as Tutorial.

A word of caution though. Seemingly no attempt has been made to "balance" the various Character's abilities, with some Characters clearly better than others. While this isn't a problem in singleplayer it could have been in multiplayer.

Completing every Quest to maximum 3 Gold awards was fun too, with some quests being genuinely very tricky indeed. It never got frustrating, but sadly there's no "Kudos" for completing every quest on every Character to maximum Rank. No unlocks, no Trophies or Achievements. No hidden artwork. Nothing. It would have been nice, but there it is.

For a fiver I got 27hrs of enjoyment out of it. That's remarkable value right there.

Difference Between Talisman Digital Edition & Talisman Prologue

Talisman Digital Edition is the multiplayer form of the game, so you can play with other players or against the AI. Talisman Prologue is completely a solo single player experience, so you will strictly play against the Adventure Cards. Nomad Games does take it a step further than that, and they have quests designed per character on the main menu. They also have characters available that are not currently available in Talisman Digital Edition.

Just know that once you complete the quest, the game ends, whether you made it to the crown or not. The only quest in Talisman Prologue that allows you to go all the way to the Crown of Command is The Magical Quest. Some characters only have The Magical Quest available to them with no other quest options. There is a distinct difference in the two games. Be sure you’re buying the game version that will suit your play style, unless you want both, then more power to you. Truthfully I think picking one or the other would be best, especially if you’re not sure whether you are going to like it or not.

This is quite literally Solo, not a "single player experience", its a single character experience, its just you and you are alone WITHOUT even computer controlled (AI) players, as one would expect by it being a boardgame.
You wont get anything of value from Talisman: Prologue, accept if you are a huge fanatic of game specific achievment chasing.
In prologue you are simply chasing trivial goals, for no real purpose than to achieve them, save your cash for the digital version.
Even at less than $2.00, I feel its wasted money, and a completly pointless purchase.

Talisman: Prologue is a proof of concept formed as a commercial product.
As such, it's not interesting for more than an hour or two - unlike the full game, Talisman Digital Edition, which I wholly recommend and which includes this game as a separate download.

If you like talisman and can get Prologue it cheap, give it a try. In all other cases, avoid.
