This year Games Workshop’s Talisman Adventure Board Game will celebrate its 35th anniversary. Pegasus Spiele, under a worldwide rights agreement with Games Workshop, will develop four new games set in the world of Talisman. The first of these games will be released in 2018.
The first edition of Talisman Adventure Board Game was published in 1983 which had players travelling a magical world to find ancient relics sand battle fantastic creatures (and each other). and perform epic quests. Once players completed enough quests they entered the inner world to face tougher challenges until they finally reached the Portal of Power to claim the Ultimate Crown.
The first game to expand the Talisman universe will be a children’s game developed by Lukas Zach and Michael Palm and is expected to release in the second half of 2018. Next in the pipeline will be an expandable card game, a role-playing game, and a dice game, though release dates for these will be announced at a later time.
“The Talisman board game has been enjoyed for decades by fans all around the world and is a truly seminal classic,” said Jon Gillard, Head of Licensing at Games Workshop. “We’re excited to be exploring the world of Talisman through these fantastic new games with our partners at Pegasus Spiele. Gamers of all ages have a lot to look forward to.” [source]
