Feature: A broken game, but in a good way. Maybe?

Have you played… Talisman?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time.Talisman, in either boardgame or videogame form, is a stupid game. It might even be a fundamentally broken game. Man, I love it. And I hate it. But also, I love it.

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.
