Talisman: the Game

When my son Daniel was 9 or 10, we played the board game Talisman with his friends. It was a lot of fun, and I was sad when I found out that it was no longer in print.

Well, I am sad no longer!

While browsing the ever enlarging Games section at Barnes and Noble, I noticed that Talisman is back on the shelves in a handsome new edition. Yay! As with the version we played, there are several add-ons for it as well. I didn't see Talisman Dungeon on the shelf, but it is available through Amazon.

According to reviews on Amazon, the rules have been tweaked slightly from the classic 2nd edition. For example, the mighty Prophetess no longer dominates the game as a character. Looks like a new generation is going to get hooked by this game.
