Hey guys, Been playing this game for a little while now and like everyone else been buying all the expansions now in a panic. I currently have: Base game, Sacred Pool, Reaper, Firelands, City, Dungeon, Highlands.

My question here is how do you organize your adventure deck? I have seen users on here type "once i separated them thats how they stayed".. what does this mean?? Do you put out like 6 piles of adventure cards and have 6 discard piles? how do you determine where your gonna draw from??

The adventure deck is huge at this point, last night I played for 2 hours before seeing a firelands card, I almost forgot the expansion was in there..

I don't separate them, well, I did once. A couple years ago I made a Halloween Adventure deck. But now I put all the card in 1 draw pile:

Since there are several times more adventure cards than you will see in a single game, depending on how many expansions you have, many Talisman fans enjoy customizing the deck to their own tastes. Some cut out all the cards they don't like and some split the deck up into sections, usually themed in some way. At one time I had the deck separated into Outer and Middle region decks, with most of the harder challenges in the Middle Region, along with most of the best rewards.

Personally I have all the expansions, and for now I've separated the adventure cards into 4 piles. Three of them are roughly themed (traditional, halloween, and elemental) and the last pile is the base set cards. I combine the base pile with one of the other 3 before playing.

In short, it's a way to get creative.

Cheers!

Chris

So now that expansion has a purpose in life? Cool.
