The spinning board effect would prevent me from playing. I hope they make it optional, but I doubt it.

I have the PC version which I think is fun though the UI needs work, it becomes a pain having to keep moving the mouse up to the top right to click the tick / cross.

I probably won't pick up the iPad version having bought the PC version (if only I'd waited a couple of weeks for the Indie Gala version) but might for my son (7) who likes playing Talisman with me. I will certainly pick up the full version for the iPad on its release, it's one of those games that I feel should be on the iPad (like Space Hulk and Robo Rally) and I will support it.

Helps that I love playing Talisman (just bought The City expansion)

My wife will "reward" me well for grabbing this when it comes out, LOL! This is one of our favorite board games, but for her it is on a whole other level of love! Looking forward to finally being released!

I guess it depends on the price

I Guess for me, it depends on the price. For 10 bucks, I'll pass. For 2-3 bucks, I'll likely grab it.

I'm more interested in the full boardgame, it's too bad they couldn't merge the two together into a single game (although since it's Games Workshop, it makes sense how they'd rather split features and milk it for every $$$ they can).

I've always been interested in the physical board game, but I picked up "Prophecy" instead, which plays somewhat similar with less randomness to movement and such.

After reading the thread, I was about to ignore this game on its launch day. However, after watching the vid, it helped me to understand the gameplay much better. Looks like a pretty solid game. Hopefully, the die rolls are balanced. I recently deleted a game where the rolls were skewed heavily towards the AI when its "back" was against the wall.

How much does PC Talisman Prologue sell for when not discounted or on promotion?
