FAQs -
Does the game have asynchronous play?
No. Talisman doesn't suit asynchronous play due to players having to react to spell casting.
What about expansions?
The first expansion pack, The Reaper, will be available as an in-app purchase on release day. There will also be several new characters available to buy. The next expansion pack, Frostmarch, will be arriving soon.
Do I need to buy expansions to join an online game with expansions?
No! You do not need to buy expansion packs in order to join a game that is using them, but you cannot choose the characters from it until you purchase it.
The game will run on iPad2 and newer devices, with iOS7.x

I'm looking forwards to this. I enjoyed the prologue but it was quite hollow playing it alone so the AI and multiplayer sounds much more fun.

People on the Steam forums are still complaining that there are some bugs in the basic gameplay that still need to be fixed. I hope all these things are ironed out before they release this on iPad.

I do know, however, that A LOT of work has been done since the Early Access version of the game came out, which (from personal experience) was a total mess, lol.
