Talisman – Fantasy Flight Games
If you’re looking for some RPG action but aren’t too keen on the group hug, co-op style of play then Talisman is for you. With 14 characters to choose from there’s going to be something for everyone in this game. Players start in the outer world, moving inwards towards a portal of great power. Along the way, you’ll acquire powerful magic, encounter evil monsters and complete epic quests. Then it’s a fight to the death for the Crown of Command as each player attempts to be the last one standing!
Talisman is super easy to learn but has the depth to keep it entertaining for the more experienced gamer. It also boasts a ton of expansions so there’s always room to grow. Lastly, this game recently went out of print so I’d suggest getting down to your local games store and grabbing a copy of this now!
