Talisman: Digital Edition is one of the best board game ports available for iPad and Android, period. Dave Neumann, Pocket Tactics

NOTE - Requires iOS 7.0 or later.

Talisman: Digital Edition, the classic fantasy adventure board game for 1-6 players. This officially licensed version of the Games Workshop game uses the 4th Revised Edition rules. In Talisman, you embark on a perilous quest for the ultimate treasure, the Crown of Command. Choose from 14 characters such as the Warrior, Assassin, Thief or Wizard and race your opponents through a perilous realm. Each character is unique in their strengths, weaknesses and special powers. To win the game, you must journey to the heart of the land to find the Crown of Command, and then use its ancient magic to cast a mighty spell to subdue all your rivals. Only by gradually building up your adventurer's powers, gathering valuable allies, and winning potent magical items will you stand a chance of surviving the ultimate test that lies beyond the Portal of Power.

This family friendly game is simple to play - roll a die to move around the board and draw cards on spaces to encounter dangerous foes and claim powerful rewards! Build up your character's power until you are ready to travel to the more dangerous areas of the board. Beware though, each character has the same goal and will stop at nothing to be the first to the Crown!

Will you be making more expansions?
Yes! We'll be releasing more characters and all of the official expansion packs for the board game.

Yes! Get your family and friends together and race each other to the Crown!

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.

Does the game have asynchronous play?
No. Talisman doesn't really suit asynchronous play due to players having to react to spell casting.

Yeah, sorry - checked the iPhone apps for an "SD" version but no luck. Looks like an iPad exclusive for the time being unfortunately

I'm curious about which of the DLC will be available, in comparison to the Steam version, and for how much? Steam already has a $60 season pass.

Social Games: Pocket Mine 2, Terra Battle, PAD

Ouch, loved the prologue version so I'll be picking this up when I get some money but not sure I loved it enough to buy all the extra content if it's the same as the steam version.

This looks very good but I'm concerned about something. In the description of the game it claims it's a family friendly game and yet there's a Bloodbath mode?
