Talisman: Digital Edition, the classic fantasy adventure board game for 1-4 players. This officially licensed version of the Games Workshop game uses the 4th Revised Edition rules. In Talisman, you embark on a perilous quest for the ultimate treasure, the Crown of Command. Choose from 14 characters such as the Warrior, Assassin, Thief or Wizard and race your opponents through a perilous realm. Each character is unique in their strengths, weaknesses and special powers. To win the game, you must journey to the heart of the land to find the Crown of Command, and then use its ancient magic to cast a mighty spell to subdue all your rivals. Only by gradually building up your adventurer's powers, gathering valuable allies, and winning potent magical items will you stand a chance of surviving the ultimate test that lies beyond the Portal of Power.

This family friendly game is simple to play - roll a die to move around the board and draw cards on spaces to encounter dangerous foes and claim powerful rewards! Build up your character's power until you are ready to travel to the more dangerous areas of the board. Beware though, each character has the same goal and will stop at nothing to be the first to the Crown!

Constantly rolling one? WTF is up with the die? Playing against AI is a waste. GW = AH for making this garbage. Save your money.

Great game but needs help with multi player Game plays true to the original board game, but server connection issues abound on multiplayer games. Feels like not enough attention is paid to Android compatibility.

Classic Board game worth every penny One of the best board games ever made in a fantastic format easy to play for up to 4 players. Best purchase I've made on mobile in years. Plays well on my nexus 5 and galaxy tab 2 10" tablet. Highly recommended. In Multiplayer it is difficult to find a friend
