Greetings to all !
Have just joined the forums and would just like to introduce myself and say hi before i start posting questions and thoughts about this great game! I'm 31 years old and come from the small island of Cyprus located in the Mediterranean Sea. My nationality is Greek/Cypriot. Huge fan of fantasy RPGs, mainly on console gaming but the one board game which has captivated me since childhood is of course Talisman.
I own the Talisman 2nd edition along with "Talisman: The Adventure" expansion and also the "Timescape" expansion. Spent many many hours on this game during my childhood, together with my 2 older brothers and my dad but sometime around my mid-teen years, it was put away in the closet mainly due to my brothers going away for studies and my dad being too busy with work. It was only last week when i stumbled upon a random article which included the word "talisman" and triggered my memory of it. One of my brothers had kept the game but even he had no recollection of doing so. Gave him a call and long story short, he found it way up high in a closet and gave it to me just to bring back some memories. Tonight, me and my wife started a game for the very first time. I feel like i'm 11 again
Anyway, that's my story. And to sum it up i'm holding up a surprise for my bro's and my dad. I've asked a local games store to order for me the revised 4th edition of Talisman along with all the 8 expansions and will invite them over once i have them for a supposedly 2nd Edition get-together gaming session
So, that's it. Greetings to all and see you around the forums!
