Welcome to Talisman Island. A humble fan site dedicated to what I think is the best Fantasy genre game ever produced: Talisman - The Magical Quest Game. Designed by Bob Harris and originally released by Games Workshop in 1983, Talisman is now having a well-deserved revival in the capable hands of Fantasy Flight Games, with a digital version now available from Nomad Games.
Talisman: Digital Edition News! 12th December 2013
I thought it was about time that I made a small update about what the chaps at Nomad Games have been getting up to in the last month or so since Talisman: Digital Edition went into Early Access over on the Steam digital distribution system!
There have been a number of tweaks and fixes made, and a LOT of new features have been added to the game since the first release. The biggest news is that online multiplayer is live and, after a few teething problems, appears to be working well.
Add to this XP, levels, leaderboards, changes to Spell timings, bonus Runestones and more! Bear in mind that this is still an Early Access release, so it is a work in progress, but things are definitely going in the right direction!

There are a couple of small tweaks that I particularly like too - New artwork is in place for the Talisman card and the Command Spell now has a card to represent a successful casting!

Hopefully it won't be too long before we will be able to see more of the Reaper expansion than we did at Halloween. I am sure you will agree that more content will be most welcome!

Talisman 30th Anniversary News! 5th November 2013
Well, the day is here and it is time to celebrate 30 glorious years of your favourite fantasy board game and I hope some of you have been able to get a game of Talisman in to mark the occasion!
I've written up a small article for the anniversary which I hope will be of interest, and you will be able to find out a little more about our little adventurer friend above who has been shrouded in mystery for a few months!
I've been working on clearing the decks of things I need to upload and articles I need to sort and I am getting there, but very slowly.
Keep on visiting and there should be some new content when you come back!
