I agree, with several of these posts.A board game is only what you really make of it. I enjoy talisman because it is random, and it doesn't take a lot of decision making, it allows for entertaining game, seeing players run into amazing, exciting moments, and also moment where they die a grizzy and gruesome death. I for one look forward to one based on 40k (my favorite game). I'll enjoy rolling dice and hoping my Imperial guardsmen is more like Marbo, and less like a nid lunchbox.
For the Emperor! er, um, the Dice Gods!
