CARLSBAD, Calif. – Feb. 6, 2019 – USAopoly®, a premier publisher of hobby, party, social and family board games and puzzles, and Games Workshop®, the world’s largest hobby miniatures company, best known for Warhammer Age of Sigmar and Warhammer 40,000, today announced plans to develop licensed versions of the critically-acclaimed adventure board game, Talisman.

USAopoly will release two new licensed versions of Talisman in North America and other select regions later this year. This will be the first time a licensed version of the game will be available. The new partnership grants USAopoly international rights to distribute co-branded renditions of the “Magical Quest Game” via distributors, online marketplaces and beyond.

Talisman is one of the most respected table top games of all time and served as a gateway into gaming for many people,” Candace Brenner, VP of Marketing for USAopoly. “Working with some of the most cherished licenses in the world to add our own heroic twists to the game, these upcoming thematic versions will let an entire new audience experience the grand adventure that is Talisman!”

First released in 1983, Talisman has sold millions of copies worldwide. The game’s fourth edition, which was released in 2009, was granted the Ludoteca Ideale Official Selection award.

Media and retailers can learn more about the partnership and details on the upcoming games at New York Toy Fair (Booth #203). More about the licensed versions will be announced later this year.

Yeah, I reviewed it a while back. We especially enjoyed it once we threw the "lose a turn" tile back in the box. No shade here, game's good.

The Hogwarts Battle game is actually fun, and has great components. I am actually happy about this. Honestly, kids should be able to play TALISMAN. I am for anything that puts more TALISMAN out there in the world. Best roll and move ever made.

I have often thought that there should be an Adventure Time version of Talisman. It works so well it's a little absurd.

Talisman is wasted as a mere hobby game. Definitely one of my son's favorite games.

I think the adventure Time version of munchkin is about the only time I'd play it. It's still munchkin, but the theme ties so well with it that it helps the gameplay a lot.

It's one of the few times I can think of where the theme helps a game design so well.

An adventure Time version of talisman would be ideal precisely the same reason. It might be the only way I get an analog version of talisman.

Now that the series is over, I wonder if companies still clamor to license it.
