Közzétéve: december 24.
One of the best board games of a long past era, Talisman evokes the core of 1980s RNG heavy dice rolling board games. For those of us who lived in that time, before Germany came along and started showing the world how great board games truly can be, this is a well realized throwback nostalgia title.
That's not to say Talisman is a great board game. It's really not. It's exceptionally RNG heavy and can be frustrating at times. But, it's also pretty fun. Particularly when playing with a group of friends over Skype, Mumble, etc. The game itself is very easy to learn. Roll a die. Move. Do what's on the board. Try to improve your character enough to get to the center, defeat the challenge, and win the game.
The software implementation of Talisman by Nomad is pretty good. The animations and sounds are good, the graphics are pretty, and it plays the way you would expect. We've only run into a few bugs, one game-breaking, over a bunch of sessions. One of the really nice things Nomad did was allow the host's version of Talisman to be played. I have the full season pack, and a bunch of my friends have the core game only. I host, and we can play with all of the expansions.
There are 3 expansions out so far. The best one at the moment is The Dungeon, which adds a large board segment to one of the corners. I'm very much looking forward to when all of the expansions are out and you can play a big mega game.
Game time can run a bit long. While this is faster than the tabletop version, budget about one hour per player per game.
I recommend, but this definitely isn't for everyone. I sunk about 100 hours into Talisman Prologue (which was their single-player "Beta" version of this and about a dozen hours so far for the full release. This is a fun one to pull out once in a while with friends, like any good board game.
