Talisman w/ Reaper: Need Best House Rules 19 May 2018 08:18 #273670

Tonight we're playing Talisman with the Reaper Expansion. I know that this was discussed before, but, I can't seem to find it. What are the best House Rules to use when playing Talisman?

Thanks for listing them.

Actually, we only use one house rule with this mix: the person to reach the Crown wins. No slow burn of attacking enemy PCs.

I think there is room for both schools of thought. LOL

This! We've made exceptions on this several times during play, the game's just very robust allowing this kind of flexibility. For example, if there's another character already in the inner zone, then the player can try to beat the character on the crown. Skip the turns of other players.

Here are the house rules that I typically go with...

- Always use the Reaper

- Only ever mix in one expansion at a time. The flavor comes out quite a bit more.

- If playing with more than three; lower the amount of trophies required to gain strength/craft to 5.

- When using the Warlock quest cards, do them randomly. Don't let people pick as per the rules.

- When drawing characters I usually give people 3 and let them choose which one they want.

- Always use the fate tokens for re-rolls (remembering that you can't re-roll a die more than once).

Can't think of anything else that I would use with just the Base Game + Reaper.
