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

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!

The percentage of Dice rolls is a joke I strongly suggest that the developer should add the statistics of dice rolls at the end of the game like other apps, e.g. Catan. Let us see how fair the dice rolls are because I don't think so.

Could be better The game is entertaining enough. No regrets there. But I've tried multiple times to get the mesmerism spell to work. It will queue, but never get triggered. Bug? Also it would be great if the rules were downloadable, not just a link to a website.

It's true to the tabletop game. Great graphics, which are as beautiful as the original artwork and are perfectly adapted for mobile. I just wish you would sort the random number generator out. I've been stuck on the crown of command for nearly 30 minutes and I've cast it twice successfully. I'd understand if it was just me, because unfortunately this is the way of the dice roll sometimes. But I'm not the only one complaining. Shame really. EDIT: The wizard managed to trawl around the board, build up his craft and strength, head on up to the crown of command and then destroy me. I was the thief. I could have won with the thief.

Works great! Just make sure if you are planning to play the game multiplayer on two different devices to not use the same google play account. It won't let you connect to eachother, but it will let you connect to other peoples' games.
