I wrote a long first impression of the Talisman expansion The Dungeon back in July. For whatever reason I never wrote one for Amazon until Friday.

Since I’m posting so many other Amazon reviews this weekend including two concerning talisman I figured I’d write one for Amazon. It’s here.

Bottom line, since picking up this expansion we never play without it. I think it’s great. If you have a gamer on your Christmas list consider this with the base game.

My review of the Frostmarch expansion for the Talisman board Game is available at here.

I hit the alternate endings pretty hard in the review although for our group it really speeds up the game. When you are playing with a group of 7 or more speeding up the game is good.

The two alternate endings not included in the game but downloadable are The Crown of Command (the regular ending) and the Danse-Macabre. I include the links to both PDFs along with the back of the card if you want to print them out. If they had included these cards with the expansion the review would have earned that 4th star.

One note the Danse Macabre variation requires the Reaper Expansion (reviewed here)

My review of the Reaper expansion for the Talisman board Game is available at here.

The reaper expansion really adds to the game it is also necessary for the online download variant the Danse-Macabre. mentioned in my review of the Frostmarch expansion.

If you like Talisman (and if you played it you should like it) you will enjoy this expansion.

The next Talisman expansion is coming in the next few months. Frostmarch will introduce 4 characters and add more of all types of cards.

Official previews are here and here, but i would have preferred to see another board expansion rather than a non-board expansion.

I’ll withhold final judgment till I see more but my son is still upset that we have no centaur character yet.

The real question is what will the Big Bang Theory guys think of it?
