Cardboardinatus! Talisman: The Horus Heresy Released

Rab has plenty of praise for the cardboard version of Talisman, a board game of exploring a world and powering up across quests and battles. The game's gone digital too, thanks to developers Nomad Games, and now they've made Talisman so very, very PC gaming by boshing in Warhammer 40,0000. Freshly released this morning is Talisman: The Horus Hersey [official site]. It's a spin-off using…

Adeptus Fortuitus: Talisman – The Horus Heresy

I didn't realise how much I wanted a Warhammer 40k themed Talisman game until I read the press release announcing Talisman: The Horus Heresy [official site] a few minutes ago (edit: I had entirely forgotten about Relic!). Set during the titular conflict, which pitted Space Marines against one another in a galactic civil war, the digital boardgame supports 1-4 players and looks like it might…

Feature: Why Talisman should be expanded forever.

Cardboard Children – Talisman Forever

Hello youse. Well, they've announced yet another expansion for one of my favourite board games – Talisman. And I want to just talk on Talisman a little bit today and what's important about games like that – particularly as we're just round the corner from Christmas. Talisman isn't the most popular game with board game fans. It's too “”random”, too “light”, too long. But those…

Talisman: Prologue review

Talisman: Prologue, out now, is Nomad Games' singleplayer-only adaptation of the long-running multiplayer-only boardgame that can be loosely described as a high-speed, competitive fantasy RPG. You pick a character, you 'explore' the board picking up loot, upgrading stats and fighting monsters, and you strive to defeat or delay your opponents as they do similar. Here, there are no opponents. How does that work, then? I…

A Prologue To Talisman Prologue

Odd that the Talisman demo should arrive on the very same day that I write about Card Hunter, which does a similar thing in reverse. I blame, I dunno, Belgium for this freaky coincidence. While Card Hunter is a videogame designed to evoke a boardgame, Talisman is a boardgame redesigned into a videogame. Specifically, a boardgame whose rights are owned by Games Workshop even though…

Go Quest: Talisman Finally Coming To PC

How did we miss this? Talisman is going to be a PC game! The looting and levelling fantasy RPG was the first boardgame I owned that you'd never find in a hotel lobby on a rainy day. Cluedo, Monopoly, Mousetrap, Ghost Castle - those had been my initiation into the cardboard arts. I can't remember how Talisman came into my possession, I was too young…

RPS Pleads: Give Us Talisman

I own a lot of very geeky things. A glance around the bedroom that I laughably like to call an office when I need to pretend I'm a real person says many things about me. The ancient pile of six IDE hard drives. The troublingly large Optimus Prime toy lurking atop my bookcase. The expensive Pro-Ject turntable I really couldn't afford, and which looks in…
