Review: Some of us remember with fondness the Games Workshop days of Talisman but I must say that Fantasy Flight Games` issue of the game is fabulous. No lie. The main box set plus the expansions make it really tough to get ahold of that one fateful item - the Talisman. There are so many devious and malicious cards now, I honestly think those guys at FFG go to Devious School when they design a game like this. It`s hard to win but when you do it`s a victory you like shoving down your opponent`s throat!! As far as difficulty goes if you can count to ten without using your fingers or toes then you can play this fantastic fantasy game where the luck you have is only ruled by the luck of the dice!!
