Will you be making more expansions?
Yes! We'll be releasing more characters and all of the official expansion packs for the board game.
Can I play with my friends by passing the device around?
Yes! Get your family and friends together and race each other to the Crown!
Does the game offer cross-platform multiplayer?
It certainly does! Play against players on other platforms in online games.
Do I need to buy expansions to join an online game with expansions?
No! You do not need to buy expansion packs in order to join a game that is using them, but you cannot choose the characters from it until you purchase it.
Does the game have asynchronous play?
No. Talisman doesn't really suit asynchronous play due to players having to react to spell casting.
What's New in Version 10.7
A new character has been added for free! The mysterious Witch Doctor makes his reappearance after a 31 year absence from the world of Talisman. No purchase required, just update the game and he will be added to your collection.
Also, we've fixed several bugs.
Next expansion coming soon - The Dragon!
Pretty fun, needs a lot of problems fixed
A lot of people don't know that you can have a private game where if everyone puts in the same game name into the private game creator, you will join the same game with your friends or family or whoever. What would be nice was if the game would run in the background and when it is your turn or someone else is attacking you, you get a notification saying "player 2 is attacking you!" And you don't have to have the app open the whole time to have an online game. It boots me out of the game just because I got a call from someone. And usually the games with 3 or 4 people go on for about 3 hours or so. So instead of having to play the game for 3 hours straight, it should be a passive game. Anyway, constructive criticism..... I believe this would be a great and popular game with a few upgrades to the app and a good amount of bug fixes. It seems to crash a lot when trying to join an online game. One more thing. I think a good addition to this game would be a Bluetooth nearby player mode so you can play with people who are sitting right next to you. I'd play this constantly if you fixed/created all the things mentioned in this review.
Waste of Money
Online Game Problems:
Private games cannot be played as there is no way to get more players into the game.
Public Games require all players be online and in the game while it is played. That would be acceptable if games could be completed in a reasonable time, but 5+ hours is not reasonable.
You cannot even multitask while playing. If you leave the game screen for any reason, you are booted from the game.
I was 90 minutes into a 5 player game that wasn't even close to finishing when I got IOSs low battery popup. That booted me from the game. Really? Yea, really!
The game NEEDS an async option. Yea, that might take months to finish, but at least we could play it.
There are tons of other problems that I wont even mention as the game is completely unplayable for the above reasons. I have the board game and love it. Unfortunately this port is absolutely horrid.
Save your money!!
I give up
The random die generator for this game needs some serious work. I've played enough dice based games, and particularly enough Talisman, to get a decent feel for how really random dice feel. This isn't it.
