Talisman

So instead of our usual Thursday P&P game we played Talisman last night. The game took only 5 hours and we even had a winner. The game was lots of fun. I believe though that there must be tons of errata out there. The game – as I own it – is horribly unbalanced and the rules not quite clear on many little things. Basically it was game over for the rest of us when the player who had the Satyr (can easily steal your companions) got a donkey and an amulett that protected him from ALL magic. We had no thief and he also had an Armor to ward of damage. He quickly hoarded all treasure there was … most of his adventures were more items, more companions and more talent and strength points …

In the end he had so many cards in front of him he lost count of all they could do.

I even made it to the crown of the world or what’s it called before he won the game and challenged him to a duel … he had only 2 hitpoints left. But sadly … I didn’t get to kill him. On his next turn he used the Satyr’s special ability to scare me away and I had to do the whole inner circle again … so I gave up and he won ….
