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.

don't get this unless its in a bundle or with the season pass.
get "Talisman Digital Edition" if you have it get dlc for it over this.

its a single player romp threw the talisman board were you do quests, but most quests rely to much on luck and your timed so you end up not getting them done and fail.
this version is not fun.
the Digital Edition is much better though and plays like the boardgame its from.

p.s. people who got the Premium Edition on desure still never got a steam key, yet all the $1 bundle buyers did.
i only own this cause it was included in the season pass (all future dlc, good move). not happy, but i'll never play this version anyway, so whatever.

Prologue is basically a demo edition. Menu navigation and gameplay controls are cumbersome, like it was designed for touchscreen with a low resolution. It's slow, shallow, and single-player only. I can't really say more, as it's already been said by the concensus: get the Digital Edition if you are into Talisman. Avoid this version. I only got it in a Humble Bundle for dirt-cheap, but there's nothing worthwhile here compared to the full game.

Just get the full game (Talisman Digital Edition) with the season pass….It's a nice tutorial, story mode and a challenge mode which should have been integrated within the Digital Edition and not to be sold separately….I just don’t understand what they have been thinking about when the devs decided to pull this…so don’t buy it unless it's in a bundle or heavily discounted

Talisman is a classic boardgame. Classic as in old. Old as in clunky, and not very good compared to modern boardgames.
This is a game of few choices and mostly just random die rolls and cards being drawn. It's Monopoly but with a health system.
There's no reason to play a boardgame faximile of a tabletop RPG based on random encounter tables when you're already at a computer and have access to better games that have moved boyond this design ethos.
