Hi all. It is great that Talisman with all its expansions is getting a reprint, specially with the crazy prices we see on eBay and the like.

Pictures of the boxes are up on Pegasus Spiele (https://pegasusshop.de/?thisoperationid=11&Action-Search.x=&...) and I might be a bit nitpicky with this one but comparing the nice design made by FFG, the reprint is a disaster and ugly as fuck! The front art itself didn't change. What I'm concern about is all the logos (size, color, etc.) Judge by yourself...



It reminds me to how video games in Germany are slapped with a crazy huge label warning the age restriction. All I ask is a little respect for the art and have a minimal sense of design taste. I know this is the way things are done now a days but I have seen other PS games with the pegasus logo being tinny and without any red background on it, just the pegasus. I would be fine with that. As for the info regarding timeplay, age, etc. just keep it in the back of the box, not on every flat surface you find on the box!

It might be too late to ask for a redesign as the production probably already started. I preordered the game with all the expansions and I'll be extremely happy to play them all but it just make me a little sad that I'll have a reflux every time I look at the boxes.

PS: The Lost Realms expansion has the art on their site as well (https://pegasusshop.de/cover/4250231724299.jpg)

Agreed, that's pretty obnoxious. All that crap is just ruining the box design.

They are printing the Lost Realms? Very neat if true.

Pegasus’s The Lost Realms is a new packaging of two FFG mini-expansions, The Nether Realm and The Deep Realms. It’s not related to the popular fan expansion from a few years back that was also called The Lost Realms.

Will Pegasus publish in the US, as well, or is this EU only? I was just curious, as I thought Pegasus was more of a European distributor.

Is the art changing at all on the cards and board? I don't like having all of that garbage on the box either, but I can live with that, as long as the components match the versions that I already have. I already own 7 of the 14 expansions, and no way that I want to have to re-buy all of those. Here's hoping they all work together and then hope for new expansions to come!

My thought, who cares. We're getting a new run of an out of print game. I don't care if it comes in a plain cardboard box.

I agree that from an aesthetic perspective, these new info labels are less than pleasing. But if I have to choose between reprints with less-than-pleasing info labels and no reprints at all, I'll take the former.

Edit: In other words, I'm just happy to be able to get all the expansions I'm still missing at reasonable prices, rather than ultra-inflated ebay prices.

I'm with you guys, I rather have an ugly cover box but get a reprint than nothing at all, that's for sure.

Pegasus Spiele will publish the game in the US as well. Their catalog shows 2 versions of everything, both with a German and US flag. I believe I read somewhere (talismanisland?) that nothing will be changed in the inside. It would be a pretty stupid move if they do.

Pegasus is famous for their ugly covers.
Be thankful that they didn't add their crappy frame around the image (I guess they do that only on the German versions)!

Nope, same design for the German boxes. The era of the Pegasus frames is over.

Maybe. The FFG Talisman boxes already have (attractive) frames, so they kept those. We’ll only know for sure that the era is over once they release a box cover with no frame at all.

Oh, that is an unfortunate name selection, then.

We were first!

Mind you, I've recently released a little pack to rename the fan expansion as "The Realms of Legend".
