The 10 is just a randomly-generated placeholder rating until I actually play it this weekend. With beer. And children.

UPDATE: This is probably the easiest 10 I've ever given a game or expansion. The extra characters and spells are almost worth the price alone, with the entire dungeon region and massive stack of dungeon cards acting merely as sweetener...

So much to love in here, like when the Summoning Circle gets clogged with an entire zoo of awfulness that no mortal can conquer, or the fact that it ups the burn rate on characters (we went through four character deaths—before the purple-lightning-leaping-from-my-mouth-when-I-scream-your-name ending—in a three-player game).

Makes the game longer, almost twice as long for us, but I don't know how much of that was due to the fact that we all crammed in and oscillated in and out of the dungeon instead of ramping cleanly toward the Crown of Command.

UP-UPDATE: Played it as a stand-alone with the kids. Talisman in 30 minutes!

It seems that the size problem wasn't at all addressed in this edition of Talisman. If it keeps going like it is, one will require a Ping-Pong table to play.
Ah, the nostalgia.

It's pretty much like the 2nd Ed. Dungeon; it's merciless and brutal. It's a meat grinder which will either win you the game, or spit you out of the belly of hell burned and scarred...or dead. But, it is much more improved over the old version, and a lot more added for variety and replay value.

Like the base game, the board feels a bit big for what it needs to accomplish. Still, a must-have expansion.

Nostalgic. Brilliant. And it stood the test of time very well indeed. Highly recommended.

This is one awesome expansion. It's very large and comes with it's own deck of adventure cards, plus some more new Spells and characters. There is nothing bad about it, it's absolutely perfect.

Great expansion to Talisman. We use all the current Fantasy Flight expansions at once and it's a big world to explore with plenty of choices.

ASL ... yes, this is my Desert Island Game. If I have to give up all my 3000+ games and only allowed to keep one, this would be it. This bloody game stood the test of time. Around for more than 25 years - simply the best.
