I received the Talisman upgrade pack last week and this is what I think. Although the character and adventure cards are better and necessary, I chose to use the old talisman and alignment cards because they are easier to read. It also did not come with a complete set of the new rules, so I had to get back on line to print them from this site. Break out the post-it notes to change the board spaces. I would almost recommend buying the whole version of their Talisman game instead of the upgrade. I wish I had, but after $20 plus $10 shipping I will stick with what I have.
I just ordered the new Reaper expansion and although I cant wait for its arrival, I am almost dreading it.
