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.
We've just added 4 new Legendary Decks to the game for purchase, along with bug fixes and other improvements.
Ratings and Reviews
It's a great transition from the board game. Some of the rolling seems suspect as I played two games back to back with same characters and same rolls where coming out even when using fate(reroll)
Downloaded the update. Some of the objects are Incredibly when used by an AI, such as Dragon Charm. It's quite annoying. It would be nice to have an indication of what is keeping you out the portal of power. Sometimes it ia confusing to figure out.
Great Game, however...
Some glitches still happening, used exp characters ie:(Dreadknight) not using exp board (City) couldn’t get warhorse because warhorse’s come from city board space. Most final finish endings at Crown of Command about to declare the game winner, app auto kicks me out of the game. Lose all Game Center awards, and in-game achievements. Please fix these problems so approximate 2 hour game play not wasted.
Good game, bad stability
My additional purchases linked to my account frequently have to be restored if I don’t leave the hateful Game Center turned on all the time. (Edit: Even with the Game center on, it -still- requires me to relog into my Asmodee account because it is apparently too incompetent to remember my purchases.)
The interface crashes or becomes unusable frequently. I suspect the increased number of add-ons has made the game increasingly unstable. (Whether you get those add-ons or not.) If you have a lot of cards interacting in late-game, it has a tendency to reach a point where it crashes every time you launch it. It is a great time-waster...when it works, but it needs a lot of work on stability.
Definitely better than sitting down to a physical copy of the game. (Again, when it works.) The base of roll-and move is super tedious as a group board game and works better here when played solo on the app when you can fast forward through computer turns. As a board game it’s seriously outdated, but as an app, it’s a good time-waster. I just wish things were competently programmed so that it was reliable. Countless games have been terminated because of instability.
Additional item that desperately needs changing: one of the characters is The Gypsy...this is actually a slur, and should really be renamed/reworked.
An addition and change to rating: the game has now taken to telling me that because I am frequently re-loading my purchases on the same device (due to it failing to remember the account link) that I have loaded the game on to too many devices. I am so ^*%# of struggling to get this game to work.
