About This Content

Will You Look Death in the Eye?

An unearthly chill creeps through the air. The Wizard stops reading his ancient tome and gazes cautiously over his shoulder. The Warrior feels an unfamiliar fear as he draws his mighty sword.

A shadow has fallen across the countryside. Death himself wanders the land. Can the heroes fulfill their epic quests with the spectre of the Grim Reaper hounding their every move?

The Reaper expansion offers Talisman Digital Edition players;
4 new characters
90 new Adventure Cards
26 new Spell Cards
12 Warlock Quest Cards
and the Grim Reaper, a dark figure that players manipulate against each other.

The race to the Crown of Command has never been deadlier!

Reaper add a LOT of nice cards above the base game. It also adds 4 new characters, at least two of which are very powerful. If I were buying only 1 DLC I'd recommend this one.

The reaper himself adds a "new" element to those that are familiar with the boardgame ... I was hesitant towards him at first, but I usually play with him active... he CAN however, be shut off if you dislike him, while still allowing all the great new cards, spells, characters.

*Edit* it was pointed out below I have zero hours in game... I have no idea why it shows zero hours on my game... maybe because this is just DLC? Trust me, I have a couple hundred hours in game and am ranked in the top 100 as of 1/29/15 at least.*

I would like to point out that the auhor of the negative review made a crucial mistake. The spell that can bug while playing with the AI (Weakness) is in the The Dungeon Expansion, not in this expansion. The Reaper expansion has no such bugs and is a lot of fun to play.

This is easily one of the more essential expansions to the game and the first one I would recommend to expand the base game. The expansion greatly expands the card variety of the base game and continues the fantasy theme established, adding much more variety to the card pool without diluting the theme of the game. The titular component of the expansion, The Reaper, is a great addition that gives more options to the player and adds an interesting game mechanic. Any time a 1 is rolled, the reaper is moved. If the reaper lands on a player they roll a die and depending on the roll they can take damage, get stronger, or even instantly die! Very tense mechanic that's alot of fun to fight to control. Finally, the characters added in the game are engaging and fun. I personally think the dark cultist is one of my favourite characters.

If you are thinking of picking up an expansion for Talisman, I would definetly recommend this one as your first. Not only is it generally cheaper, but it's so essential to spicing up the base game that I honestly just consider it part of the base game and always play with it on.

Well worth it! New characters to play, new enemies to battle, new spells, and kill other players with the Grim Reaper. Makes the game a ton more fun and interesting!

Big bugs still in this expansion. If you get the displacement spell, good luck using it. Tried to use the hidden pouch object several time only to find I dropped the object I was trying to put in it. Tried it a second time, it looked like the object was going to drop again so I didn't use it only to have the AI immediately pilfer the object I was trying to protect. I have nothing but anger for this bugged expansion.

This is the second Talisman expansion I've bought, the first being The Dungeon which I really enjoyed (and would definitely recommend) so I decided to buy another. After about an hour of playing I'm not impressed with The Reaper pack, the new characters seem good (although I've only played as the Knight so far) and the additional adventure cards aren't bad either but in the short time I've had playing this expansion it has crashed twice which I haven't experienced before with Talisman. Whenever the weakness spell is played the game instantly closes and when the demigod card comes up the game freezes, I'm really disapointed because The Reaper pack promises to add so much but instead just randomly breaks the game. My advice would be to go for The Dungeon pack instead.

Nomad Games retroactively changes the terms of their contracts. I cannot recommend buying anything from this company nor will I do business with them again.
