I'm not sure what universe the designers live in, but Talisman is already basically a children's game as it is.

Two phrases I have a hard time squaring with Talisman are "cooperative" and "limited amount of time".

Looks like Michael has another kid's game to add to his list.

Talisman was originally designed for older kids. Too much reading necessary to label it a "Children's Game."

Seems like it's going to be different from Talisman? It's kind of surprising that GW licensed this to other publisher.

Weirdly, it’s designed by the dudes that made Die Kutschfahrt zur Teufelsburg. Michael Palm also did that pretty dumb Dark Eye adventure card game Aventuria.

Could be neat.

Pegasus Spiele did the German edition of Talisman, and was the distributor for the English Edition in Europe, so the license isn’t so surprising.

I'm sure it could be good, but Talisman is a garbage license (not necessarily garbage game YMMV). I mean, you think Terrinoth is generic...

It has nostalgia value and the timing is right. Talisman is celebrating it's 35th anniversary, which means people who played it when they were young have kids that are the right age for this new game.
