"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!

Does the game have asynchronous play?
No. Talisman doesn't really suit asynchronous play due to players having to react to spell casting.

Great port from the board game, but... The randomness doesn't feel random at all. I've played a bunch of games so far and the dice rolling doesn't look random. Also the AI needs some work, they make some weird choices like choosing the Strength path to the Crown when their craft is 5 points higher. All in all, still good, but frustrating when dice rolls don't seem random.

Bug Found Destruction spell won't cast, and when you try it makes it so you can't roll. Playing as the Wizard is super frustrating when you can't cast your last spell.

Love it Great digital version of the board game. Still prefer the actual board game but this is great when your buds are not available.

Can't purchase Highland expansion Tried a few days ago and today but I can't buy the Highland expansion in the app. Error message reads that the product is unavailable then another that says the product code is invalid. Take my money! ;-)
