Way back in the mists of time, at GW's Games Day 1983, a board game was unleashed onto an unsuspecting public.
That board game was... Calamity! designed by the composer Andrew Lloyd Webber.
As you have likely never heard of said game, it is probably true to say that it did not fare too well.
However, at the same time, GW launched another board game. A light fantasy romp through a magical land by a certain Bob Harris. That game was reasonably well received and to this day is still played, both in its original and revised forms by players throughout the world.
THAT board game was... Talisman: The Magical Quest Game.
The 5th of November 2013 will be the 30th Anniversary of the game's launch and Talisman Island will be marking it by showing off a small surprise which has been cooked up by the fevered minds of Gary Chalk, Bob Harris, John Goodenough and myself.
Hopefully I am not building it up too much, but I suspect that people will get a kick out of it. I will add a small teaser picture below, though it shouldn't be too hard to figure out what is going on.
Just to add, that it would be nice if people could perhaps get a game organised for the night of the 5th of November in honour of this occasion. If you can take some pictures of the celebrations then I will make a gallery on Talisman Island, or you could just post them here!
*Note: People in the UK will likely be having bonfires and fireworks that evening, but I am going to pretend that they are all celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Talisman anyway!
