Anyone here a fan of the board game Talisman?

Anyone here a fan of the board game Talisman? Can't Post

I was doing some searching recently and found an old game called 'Talisman' in one of my draws. It (the 2nd edition) was made by Games Workshop in the 1980s. Had a game with a friend and it's great fun, hugely varied with about 50 or so characters to play as! I intend to get the latest edition at some point, as I haven't had so much fun playing a board game for a long time.

Anyone else here a fan?

I wouldn't necessarily say that I'm a fan. I don't own a copy of it, but my friend does. Usually when he's around (as he lives long distance from here) we'll try to fit in a game of it. I've only ever played the most reason edition of it (as far as I know). I've often called it the modern Dungeons and Dragons (though D&D is still relevant, or course, I just played it long before this). I also find it much easier to just pick up and play, rather than building a character and performing new stories (which, don't get me wrong, is awesome; there's just not as much time for that anymore on my part). Very easy fantasy board game, but techincal enough to make it interesting. Excellent quality and fun! Smile

When you can't agree on anything else [In reply to] Can't Post

Talisman is the game we play when a consensus cannot be reached on any other game. Jokingly referred to as Fantasy Chutes & Ladders.
Other games usually in the mix; Divine Right, Down With the King, Dune, Axis & Allies, Diplomacy...

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

-the Litany against Fear
