The last corner! I've gotta say, I think this will be a pretty awesome expansion for Talisman fans...

...well it wouldn't exactly be unprecedented...



And, don't forget! There's still a little real estate between the corner boards! Maybe some little mini three-square expansions?

Pfft, that tower looks far too stable, who's gonna ever so slightly brush against it and cause all the figures to topple over ?

This is nothing - I've heard they're planning an expansion that will be large enough for the player to physically enter. Instead of cards, each "space" will contain actual bears and dragons which you will fight not by rolling dice but by playing contract bridge with the actual creature (craft) or by subduing it via Greco roman wrestling (strength). Plus, the tavern will have an actual drunk farmer.

Coming in 2016!!

Buying this (but only for the farmer, I don't care about the rest of the expansion).

But seriously, great news! I'm really happy to see that they actually managed to complete all four corners. Nice!

I had heard this rumour too. Unfortunately, it had to be abandoned as the play-testers never made it out alive!

The best part is, FFG has excellent customer service, so if your copy has a missing or damaged farmer, they will promptly send you a replacement farmer (with strength 3.)

Woodlands is excellent news!

I WOULD like to see a Dragon's Tower type of expansion for the center though just like 3rd ed.

Give it 4-5 levels though and perhaps 20 spaces to get thru on your way to the top.

The next expansion after this should include a fancy box with a proper insert to hold everything in place, including the minis.

Oh well, I was hoping for a seagoing expansion with sea serpents, pirates and such. Anyway, surely this will be cool too. And it's good news they finally rounded up the game, can we say now this is the largest Talisman edition ever?

It was the largest quite awhile ago.

1st/2nd edition expansions: 6

3rd edition expansions: 3 or 4 (Wikipedia names the Wizard tower as an expansion, but says there are only 3, yet lists 3 others besides the Wizard Tower)

4th edition: 9 or 10 (Nether realm would be the 10th, but its a PoD)

Updated Toad King Character Card:

The Toad King now rewards you if you are a Toad, following the same idea of the Toad King Stranger in the Woodland Expansion!

Good news is that this looks like it allows for more fate replenishment through Woodland cards and the resulting Destiny.

Trying to figure out the path through the board - guessing it's an S like the Dungeon and Highlands.

If I'm reading it right - Sidhe Fae Enemy is brutal though if you're Darkbound and lose - 'Killed'. You're out of the game? Whaaaaaaa? Lucky it's only Craft 4.

This + a nerfed version of broken characters and items (Alchemist, Sword of Truth, Flail, Scribe/Spellbook...)

Or just go separate board altogether...

It was 3. The first 2 each came with 2 corners. The last/third was the Dragon King's tower.

So glad this is coming out. The board looks so wrong without all 4 corners there!

Ok. So my final request is a catacombs board that you sit on the floor under the table...(or you can build a nifty board raiser as a custom project...for those that like to play on the floor).
