I would like to buy it but I first tried it in PC and then I realised that it's too simple and very luck based game. I like easy games like forbidden island and ticket to ride, etc but this game is way too simple.

I wish I am mistaken because I have only played once..

No, you are not mistaken. Talisman is very much an early / mid 80s board game: heavy on theme, but predominantly driven by luck (die roll). There is little interaction (depends on players, but generally little), and no meaningful decisions to be made.

Very much a beer and pretzels kind of game, or for people who like CYOA, or rogue-type games.

I loved Talisman and the expansions back in the day. I haven't played since the 80s, and wouldn't play solitaire. I'd might, possibly might play multiplayer for a very light experience and because of the theme. However, there are so many better board-games out there where one has to make meaningful decisions, that I'll probably skip the multiplayer version.

I think there is fun to be had with Talisman provided that you are aware of its limitations before you hit the 'buy' button.

Yeah, you don't post nearly enough. This was an excellent description of the game, truly!

I love it. It's cheesy, yes, but it's simple, mindless fun and there can be some strategy involved.

The Mp is where it's at, seeing someone get turned into a toad and making a mad dash to pick up all their crap is the real fun of the game. It's one that you love to hate and is best with friends.
