A Look at the Board
06 August 07

One of the really great features about the new edition of Talisman is the sheer size of the board; it’s a truly epic playing surface that can easily handle all the counters, cards and playing pieces that will be placed on it during a game. Players of previous editions may recall how crowded the board used to get after an hour of play – no more!
