My niece and some of her friends were playing their first game of Talisman this past weekend. I noticed that they had been playing for over 4 hours and discovered that they may have been making the game harder than it needed to be.

In the rulebook it states:

The encounter instructions on each space in the Inner Region must be completed before a character can move towards the Crown of Command.

The way they were playing the Inner Region is that you has to complete each space in the Inner Region before you could enter the space in the middle. They were going around the Inner Region 1 1/2 times in order to get to the Valley of Fire and enter the Crown of Command space. I haven't played a complete game yet, but I am almost certain that that was wrong. I told them that the sentence just meant that you had to beat each space you encountered on your way to the Valley of Fire and you didn't have beat every space in the Inner Region. They kept reading the sentence and all agreed that they had to complete each space.

I gave up and finally after 6 1/2 hours someone finally reached the Crown of Command. I haven't had a chance to play the game myself, but please someone tell me I was right or I may not ever play. :cry:

They loved the game even though I think it took them way to long to play it.

Chris, your interpretation is correct. One only has to travel up one side of the inner region to reach the Valley of Fire.

Thanks Glenn. I was pretty certain that I was right, but it's hard to convince college kids when their minds are made up. :laugh:

Aye. Maybe explain to them that are 2 paths to the Valley of Fire. The Strength Path and the Craft Path. Strength turns right and must face Death along the way. Craft is to the left, and gets to meet the Vampires.

I plan to play my first full game this weekend with some of my friends that I've recently introduced to gaming. I have a feeling that it's going to be a big hit. Especially if we play it the way it is suppose to be played. :laugh:
