Talisman® is a game in which you take on the role of a heroic adventurer, building up your strength, wisdom, and wealth in a quest for glory. Talisman Prologue brings all the fun of the classic board game and more to the digital realm. Talisman Prologue is the first release in this exciting adaptation of the classic board game.
The legend begins with a single-player series of adventures designed to invite both veterans and newcomers to explore the land of Talisman. While multiplayer gameplay will be available in upcoming expansions, Talisman Prologue focuses on creating narrative depth through its single-player campaigns. The story unfolds as the player rolls dice to move around the outer, middle, and inner regions of the board. Each space will require the player to draw a card or resolve a special effect, leading your hero to encounter monsters, discover friendly followers, and gather treasure.
While Talisman Prologue uses the rules of the board game, there are some differences in the gameplay. The biggest new addition to the game is the introduction of quests. In the classic board game of Talisman, the goal is to reach the Crown of Command and claim it. In order to provide a varied, rich, and story-focused experience each time you play Talisman Prologue, you play one of fifty unique quests for each of its ten characters. The quests have goals that the player must complete in order to lead his hero to victory. You may be tasked with saving a damsel in distress, recovering a powerful artifact of legend, or fending off an immense horde of monsters!
In Talisman Prologue, you never have to wait your turn, but the turns still count for something. Finishing quests in as few turns as possible earns players between one and three Talisman tokens that rate your success. Learn the spaces on the board, get familiar with your weapons and followers, and make the most efficient use of your turns to get all three Talismans!
Whether you are a long-time fan of Talisman or new to this game of magical quests, Talisman Prologue offers the thrill of adventure to all comers.

This game offers just the same what it's board sister and nothing more. Graphics are styled same as original paper version. No special effects. No fireworks at all. Just pure electronic version of legendary RPG. Prologue allows You to play singleplayer only. So if You are fan of Talisman and You have some time just hop into adventure and get that crown.

The simple fact is, Talisman Prologue might be one of the finest examples of getting exactly what you pay for that I've played in some time - perhaps, without coincidence, since I lost last summer to Magic 2013. Based on the classic board game of the same name, a PC version of Talisman was released last year, and its arrival on touchscreens is a welcome one indeed. This is an adventure game built around dice rolls, good fortune, bad fortune, enhancement cards and - above all else - sheer intrigue as you travel around and through the layers of the board. Split into three concentric squares of increasingly perilous content, your quests will demand that you see off an assortment of evils, and you'll always have to carefully evolve your character's power before choosing the right moment to attack your ultimate target.
For hardcore fans.Liverpool1971 | June 7, 2013 | See all Liverpool1971's reviews »
At present, the game in fact has very little to offer. As the name suggests this is a "prologue" and you can only play single player, which after some time becomes terribly boring. Other disadvantages are that the game has not a lot of hero cards, the impossibility of saving the game (in turn-based game!). Some cards are not suitable for playing in singleplayer mode (eg. spell of mesmerism). If you’re a fan of the board game you should definitely buy it, but only then. Maybe that will change when the multiplayer expansion will be available.
