Base Talisman + Highlands board = LOTS of gold!

9 posts in this topic

So I have the base Talisman set and recently got the Highlands expansion.

It's been great fun, but one thing I've noticed is characters getting LOTs and LOTS of gold.

In fact it's doesn't take that long for the store of gold coins to run out!

Now admittedly as this is a new expansion for us, we've been spamming the Highlands to see what all the adventure cards are like in there. But there DOES seem to be a LOT of ways to get gold in there. What with the various places in there to get gold and trinkets you can sell.

Did anyone else have the same experiences with the Highlands board?

I think the more important question is, are you getting any use out of that gold? Apart from the broken-ass Alchemist character from Highlands, no character makes any real use out of gold and there are still very few places to spend gold, making it for me the most common, yet most un-useful resource.

This is completely true. Though hopefully this will be remedied when the City comes out with its shops. By the way, there isn't such a thing as "un-useful". Either something is "useful" or it's "useless"! =P

No not really, once you've bought some , armor, mule, maybe a sword or axe in the early part of the game then there's not much else to buy.

Well you also can spend gold to heal lives as well, but it in no way keeps up with teh gold you can get from the highlands.

Yes looking forward to the city expansion and hopefully it will create some uses for all that gold.

The Highland is meant to collect lot´s of gold, so you can buy goodies in the city expansion.

At this moment, you can´t do very much with it unless there are cards on the board, where you can buy some things.

Well, it's technically not useless, you can still pay for healing, hit the Blacksmith in the Village and buy on the occasional card that allows spending burla . If it were useless, you'd just collect and never get to use it for anything.

Yes, but I was just criticising your grammar. If something is not very useful but still not useless, you just call it that, "not useful". ;) "Un-useful" sounds very awkward and contracted. =P
