Welcome to Talisman Island. A humble fan site dedicated to what I think is the best Fantasy genre game ever produced: Talisman - The Magical Quest Game. Designed by Bob Harris and originally released by Games Workshop in 1983, Talisman is now having a well-deserved revival in the capable hands of Fantasy Flight Games, with a digital version now available from Nomad Games.

You may not have noticed, but Nomad Games has been having a sale on Talisman: Digital Edition and Talisman Prologue and you can save a massive 30% off EVERYTHING they have to offer!

That's 30% off both games AND all of the downloadable content. It's probably the best time to spring for the Gold Pack or the Season Pass to get your money's worth, but hurry as the sale won't last forever!

Talisman: The Woodland Sneak Peek #1!
17th May 2014

Following on from the announcement from Fantasy Flight Games about The Woodland expansion for the Revised 4th Edition of Talisman, I thought it might be nice to start off with some sneak peeks at some of the artwork from the expansion!

FFG have kindly allowed me to post some more images from the upcoming expansion to whet your appetites over the coming weeks. This time I have chosen the box art without any of the normal "dressing" so that you can see a little more of what is going on. What do you think it all means?

There has been no word yet on the other international versions, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it shouldn't be too long before we hear something!


I've been working on clearing the decks of things I need to upload and articles I need to sort and I am getting there, but very slowly.

Keep on visiting and there should be some new content when you come back!

Remember, Talisman Island is what YOU make it. If you have anything that you would like to be presented in any of the sections, just fire off an email to me and we'll try to get your creations to the masses!

Have a look around the place, let me know what you like, what you don't like and what else you'd like to see!
