This expansion helped to perk up the game early on, but looking back, it is the weakest of all DLC.

I would only recommend this expansion for purchase if you enjoy spells and spellcasting characters. The Necromancer is a decent 'all psychic all the time kind' of guy, and the Warlock not only starts in the middle region, he is a walking assault battery of magic. Be aware that the Warlock can really ruin the game for people if the City expansion is used and abused by the Warlock. The spells are a good dose of mage abilities and also many that are useful to heroes who infrequently dabble.
The leprechaun can be fun if you want to be swimming in more gold than you can reasonably spend in one game. But he is otherwise lackluster. The ogre chieftain looks like fun until you realize you don't need to dominate anything after a short while because he's a big baddy from the start. It's typically better to keep trophys. You will also not be evading many monsters... which leaves his abilities pretty lacking. The ogre chieftain will absolutely destroy the Dungeon expansion though, so if you want that experience, go ahead.

The rest of the expansion is petty unremarkable.
The endings are weak. Two rehashes of the base game ending (which is atrocious) attempt to make it more palatable. While these endings are better, they don't do a lot to be exciting. The Ice Queen is a static 12 strength/craft snooze-fest that you can deal with in whichever way is most convenient. Hardly inspiring. The Warlock Quests ending is an interesting concept, but many of the quests are easily completed and all of them will be done before anyone could make a run for the ending anyways.
The adventure cards are not very good either. If I think about which ones really changed gameplay for the better or even stood out thematically... I come up with nothing. They are forgettable.

Like almost any DLC, it adds a bit of variety to the game. Buy it for the characters and spells. If the characters don't really do anything for you, you're pretty safe to skip this DLC and save your money for almost any other DLC expansion. They all offer more sizeable content and unique experiences; even the non-board expansions. I'd recommend you leave this DLC as a last option. But hey... if it goes on sale for $2, it's probably a better investment than another coffee and a donut.

A good expansion if you want some new caracters, followers and enemies. Will say it is a better buy than Dungeon, but not as good as The Reaper. Recomended to people wanting a little diferent experiense, without to many diferenses from the main game. The main diferense is the battle with the Ice Queen at the crown of comand, with forces you to grind more than in the main game. Can make the game crash if you play online, so you may want to wait til it works properly before you buy it. all in all a good buy (especially if you get it on sale)

BUG REPORT: AI got stuck in a loop when it used Ancient Artefact followed by using the Cross. Then the next game crashed when the AI tried to use lucky clover with Ghost and it chose to roll a 6 .. this last bug is ridiculous because why you would use a lucky clover to determine where a ghost is placed on the game board is very odd choice.

This game gets a thumbs up if the developers can fix the glitches. It's a lot of fun to play when it doesn't crash or get stuck in a loop. I am reluctant to buy more DLC until I see this has been addressed. If it is updated I will change my review to thumbs up. Thanks.

A decent expansion, though there's some bugs.
Someone mentioned the Bag of Carrying. Also, the False Grail cannot be ditched/discarded even after you visit the Castle.

Probably the best expansion released for Talisman so far. A lot of new enemies, equipment, followers, spells, and especially characters. The game is much, much more fun with this expansion. Definitely get this!

An expansion to a good and entertaining turn-based game.
It doesn't make the games longer... but it gives more options when you are playing it.

So, in essence... if you liked the original, this expansion is a must have.

P.S.
I play mostly offline, and my gaming time is not accurate... but I have Talisman under my "Greatest Hits" category ;)

I've played with this expansion many times, but have never seen any ice queen fights at the crown of command or alternate endings. The extra cards seem to be there though. What am I missing here?

Adds a broken item, "Bag of Carrying" to the game. If you use it it may go into a never-ending cycle of using it. Cancel, put items in, take them out... it'll just keep using the bag. Why pay for an item that can force you to start a new game?

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.
