Talisman

I first played Talisman c. 2001. It was the second-edition. I got the fourth-edition for my birthday, and I’ve played it three times already.

Turns out there’s already been a change of publisher again and another edition is soon to be out. Word is, however, that there will be an “upgrade pack” for those of us with the fourth edition.

I like Talisman, but I think it drags on too long. I have the Second Edition, plus the 1986 Expansion Set, the Adventure expansion set, and the Dungeon expansion set.

It still gets played; both my eldest son and my wife like it a lot.

It does seem to drag-on a bit. They’ve got some alternate rules to speed it up that I intend to read and try next game.

It makes up for that somewhat with quick setup and turns that go by pretty briskly.
