Talisman (4th ed)
Staff Recommendation: Steve (May 2021)
"This is an easy to play fantasy game, with characters travelling the realm fighting monsters, meeting strangers and finding treasure. It's great for non-gamers to get into, and the gameplay doesn't lend to power playing, so everyone is on a level playing field.
I own all the expansions, and seeing it all together is both exciting and daunting (since you know the game will be a few hours!). For faster play just use the base game, and some selected expansions.
Each expansion creates some new opportunities for the characters, could be the higher level monsters of the Dungeon to speed up that last game dash, or the City for buy equipment or magic items.
Overall great fun, and a very good interpretation of 1st/2nd edition (which I also played way back when!)."
