“Talisman: Prologue joins Ticket to Ride, Ascension and others among the growing pantheon of outstanding digital translations of board games.”

“Excellent though the gameplay and presentation of Talisman Prologue is, the most remarkable thing about the game is how accessible it is to players of all levels of experience.”

About the 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.

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.

A great job at showing how to finally bring this fun fantasy board game to the PC. While there's plenty of life in this version, there's a lot that would be added by getting the multiplayer version once it's out of early access. Many characters have a ton of quests tied to them to try to beat as well as the randomness of the core game. Hopefully once the multiplayer is out we will see the other board game expansions translated to the PC version.

This IS the classic board game I used to play. What a GREAT game this was. The Prologue edition can be played solo. The deluxe can be played with others.
This game used to have a few expansion packs that are being added to this version.

If you ever played Talisman back in the day, get this! You will remember why you loved it!

Although, I bought two versions of Talisman (Prologue and Digital Edition), I started with this. Yes, I got a good experience, playing and learning different characters, their advantages. This helps me to know the game, its rules. But after some games, this solo adventure starts to bother me. Quests quite frankly aren't interesting. Often you need to get to some place or monster, and you roll dice one by one until you get exactly you need (Sometimes I spent more than 20-25 turns just only to be on the same space as my quest's task). I don't persuade to buy Talisman, but don't waste money, buy original Talisman: Digital Edition, where you get better experience, fun and enjoyment playing with friends or bots. There you will not only roll dices, but also think about your next steps.
