Talisman Legendary Tales ?

Recommended Posts



I saw this from Talisman Island recently.  Not a lot of info.  Is it a new expansion (doesn't appear) or a new game set in the same "world" as Talisman?


I would like any such new idea be interwoven with the game as is; - - but I'm willing to see what is up with this.

It's a new co-operative family game.


Blurb from the page -



Many centuries ago, legendary smiths forged the Crown of Command, a magical artefact of immense power. Whoever wears the Crown of Command will hold power over all of the land.

Decades ago, a powerful wizard sealed the Crown of Command behind the Portal of Power to prevent evil forces from obtaining it. Only those who possess one of the legendary Talismans may pass through this Portal to reach the Crown.

Over the years five of the Talismans have disappeared. Enemy forces now seek to find them in order to seize the Crown of Command for themselves. Brave Heroes that you are, you have banded together to go on a quest to retrieve all five Talismans - and thereby stop the evil power behind these enemy forces from ruling the world.

This task won’t be easy as finding each Talisman is an epic adventure in itself. However, if you work together using everyone’s abilities and helping one another when you can, you will surely succeed.

The players must work together as an adventure party to recover the 5 legendary Talismans that have been lost. During each adventure the party will endeavour to recover one of the lost Talismans. The adventures must be played in order. You may repeat adventures and you may play one or more adventures in a game session.

Over the course of this story you will travel across a wondrous land and will have exciting adventures in which you must make important decisions and defend yourself against cruel Enemies.

As an adventure party, you will succeed in each adventure once you have completed the final task and have recovered the Talisman. Be careful; you have only a limited amount of time!


The mechanics are described as -

Co-operative Play 

Deck / Pool Building

Variable Player Powers

Has anyone had a chance to play this yet? 

I played through the first mission with my friends at GenCon, which involved collecting herbs for the Alchemist and finding some fairies. It's a radically different game, definitely geared toward a younger audience.  The cooperative aspect is interesting, and one of my friends particularly enjoyed it, but ultimately, I don't think it's a game for me.
