I didn't see anything posted about this, but figured someone on here might want to know. Announced yesterday at GAMA is Relic, a 40k version of the old game Talisman.

Initial impression: Relic? Well that doesn't sound very 40K-y. Oh, and a Marine on the front cover. What Russian company is ripping off 40K this ti... FFG? It's an FFG game? Really???

A borefest with a good theme is still a borefest.

Still, it looks cool and might be fun if I can persuade my gaming group to give Talisman another go. The first (and last) experience was so negative, I doubt it. A three hour game with few decisions and no end in sight is not fun.

Talisman is decent but a lot of what it has going for it is the appeal of nostalgia. I played it when I was much younger (15-20 years ago) and then got a copy recently to play with my gaming group. They, having not played the original, were much less convinced of its 'charm'.

It's a self-contained board game. Very traditional, roll dice, move character act on square you land on fare. Much like Monopoly with an RPG element. It's not an awesome system, but has served as a portal to other things for many gamers. (Was one of my first gaming experiences)

Its a boardgame where everyone travels around board killing stuff, in order to build up stats, and get magic items so you can go into the center and fight a dragon for the crown to win. If a player lands on a square with another player, theres an option to attack the player and take stuff. heh. So, it can get pretty cutthroat. The old version used to end when someone won the crown. In the new version, when a player wins the crown he starts attacking all the other players. So, they still can get to middle, inflict some beat down and take crown.

There's also expansions on the basic game which adds maps to corners of basic map.

Its monopoly long (could be 3+ hrs), not a whole lot of stratagy, but I give it thumbs up. Its a fun game to sit around and play with a few .

This could be interesting, but if it is simply Talisman in a 40K skin then this would be somewhat disappointing.

I have the BI and FFG versions of Talisman so the same game with essentially the same board but 40k'd and different player pieces holds no interest.

Techpriest and Sister of Battle in the background? Is that what I'm seeing? I love FFG sometimes for not forgetting the underused bits of the 40k fluff... *sold*


*edit*

I've just been needing a reason to buy Talisman anyway... guess this is a decent enough one, considering the game can be an amusing party game...

40K Talisman? FFG, my wallet awaits further instructions

My tips to a fun Talisman time:
Play with a good group of friends
Drink Heavily (if of legal age of course)
Don't try to win, everyone should try to prevent others from winning
Smack talk, victory dances, and coming up with ridiculous personal goals that have nothing to do with the win condition should be encouraged.
Dont be serious, Jokes and laughter are the sign of a good Talisman game
Movies playing and other distractions are perfectly fine.
You only really have one choice: left or right. Dont take forever to make it. Dont be passive or defensive either.
Angry or sullen is right out.

There's too little player input in the Talisman system so I'm not very interested.

The Tick: Everybody was a baby once, Arthur. Oh, sure, maybe not today, or even yesterday. But once. Babies, chum: tiny, dimpled, fleshy mirrors of our us-ness, that we parents hurl into the future, like leathery footballs of hope. And you've got to get a good spiral on that baby, or evil will make an interception.

Talisman was a pretty fun game back in the day. I have many fond memories of it! I've been tempted to buy the updated version of it.

I think the appeal of it was that it had everything gw all mixed up. Wood elves and space marines. Dunno if I'd want a 40k only version of it, but who knows it could be a blast.

You know how to play it too! So, so fun and I hope that the 40k one is too.

"Orkses never lost a battle. If we win we win, if we die we die fighting so it don't count. If we runs for it we don't die neither, cos we can come back for annuver go, see!"

I dig how in a setting where giant, muscled fungus men ride Mad Max cars and use their own teeth as currency, the concept of little engineering dudes with beards was considered a step too far down the aisle of silliness.

Agreed. They need to simply include these rules in the official rulebook.

I have played some epic games of Talisman with friends. As long as the price on this is right, like not Dread Fleet sized, I'll be picking it up.
