I am a big fan of the board game Talisman, so many late night memories of playing the game, often after a marathon Dungeons & Dragons session.
Normally I’m all in with the expansions- the four realms, reaper, and alternative endings.
One can never have to much.
Yet, there are times when a simple quick play of the game is best, and for the my copy of the Black Library edition works.
Random draw of characters and I start off with the Warrior, traveling the realm, racing for the Crown of Command against the Druid, and the Thief.
Talisman being Talisman, and this edition of Talisman being Talisman without the fate re-roll to save you…
I stack up a ton of gold to buy stuff and heal up for the mid-game and get his with the Toad, dropping my gold!
Later to pull an impressive lead, only to get hit by the raiders.
Toad! Toad! Toad!
