"Talisman: Digital Edition is one of the best board game ports available for iPad and Android, period." – Dave Neumann, Pocket Tactics

**Included in Pocketgamer.co.uk's Top 10 Board Games on Android**

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!

Love it!! I enjoyed Talisman Prologue on my nook so I was very pleased to see this new version for my phone. They have done a really great job on updating this game. I have not had any problems with it so far. I plan to buy the expansions too. The game is easy to learn and very enjoyable to play. You can't go wrong with purchasing this app.

Good duplicate of the tabletop It's great! But... the knight regularly attacks other good characters.

Roll 1 re-roll? Roll 1 After getting the Dungeon expansion, this game became unplayable. The die roll is very much in favor of the AI. I constantly roll 1, loosing battles even with weaker enemies. I get killed in a matter of minutes. Other than that, a great game but the die roll needs balancing ASAP.
