Talisman Board Game 4th Edition
Board Games 7298
Dead, but not buried
(Updated: February 15, 2009)
Great. A fantasy game that's boring for both kids AND adults.

The 21st century reprinting of Talisman - knowingly! - after the publication/innovation of Descent, Prophecy, Return of the Heroes, and Runebound is an inexcusable crime worthy of a class action lawsuit.

Following my recent experience with this nostalgia-fueled fun incinerator, I did some additional background research - and what I discovered is that rabid Talisman fans also enjoy:

- teenage heart failure
- incurable venereal disease
- Keanu Reeves movies

So yes, I suppose that I should have known better.

Admittedly, I've done some rotten things in my life. I've swindled, flayed, pimped, and dislocated. (Often, all at once.) But now, those who have been wronged by my heinous acts can consider their vengeance complete. For I have played...TALISMAN.
