I recently got the expansions to this but haven't had a chance to mess with them. I like the idea of all the new characters and stuff, but it also looks like they might add a non trivial amount of fiddly little rules to remember which definitely isn't what DQ wants.


Oh wow. The expansions are like hens teeth right? And with a receipt to match? I think as long as the new characters are no more in-depth than say the elf from the base game with his arrows variant then it would be cool to have that added variety. And the box art and all that comes with it is surely a treat.


I got them in trade, bundled with the base game and minus the boxes and minis. Figured I can proxy the minis. Mint in box they're... Prohibitively expensive.

Yeah it certainly speaks to the pedigree of this little box that could, right? Those crafty swedes were onto something.

Ahhh shaggy old Talisman. The game that started it all for me. I've played it in every decade since its arrival. Some of the sessions seemed to last a decade in themselves. I'll have to put pen to paper on it one day, if only to bemoan how the OP Monk can fuck right off.

That certainly sounds more feasible. One could probably finance a modestly sized private island complete with monkey butlers for the price of a complete set. Perhaps you could... Scan them? For historical archivists purposes only of course.

Your review has inspired me to dust this one off for some weekend plays. I think my wife leads me in total successful delves and money earned.


That sounds rad, I love homebrewing content and expansions. Good luck redressing the balance with your wife this weekend!


Here are the homebrewed files. My personal favorite is Steelhorns who is very strong and high on hit points, but also draws 2 Dragon cards in the treasure room....bull meets china shop.
