New Characters

AMAZON

Brave and battle-hardened, she gets a second chance at a battle if she loses or has a stand-off, and she has more choices of movement when traveling around the board.

LEPRECHAUN

What the Leprechaun lacks in brute strength, he makes up for in the ability to raise a supply of gold quickly and his ability teleport anwhere on the board (in his current region)  on the role of a six!

MINOTAUR

This brutish powerhouse of a character stampedes around the board taking out anything in his way, being able to add his movement roll result to his Strength for any battles.

SAGE

The wise, old Sage has some interesting abilitites which make use of his higher knowledge. He can look at the top cards of the Adventure and Spell decks whenever he likes, which could affect your decision to move to a draw card space or avoid one!

SPRITE

The dainty Sprite is one of the best spell-casters in Talisman. Her small size and low Strength disguise her power and usefulness as a spell-caster. She can also evade creatures in the Woods and Forest, meaning no nasty encounters with the Forest Brigand.

VAMPIRE HUNTER

Garbed in crosses and loaded with multiple stakes and vials of holy water, the Vampire Hunter is ready for business, and her business is to hunt the spawn of Evil that prowl the realm by night. Because vampires and spirits are as likely to engage in deadly psychic combats as they are in battles, the Vampire Hunter balances her training between both of them, making her one of the most balanced and lethal among the game's hunters.

About Talisman®

Talisman is a classic board game with a fantasy theme. As one of a variety of characters, which includes warriors, rogues and magicians, the player embarks on a perilous adventure to find and claim the Crown of Command, a magical artifact with the power to destroy any rival and make the bearer the ruler of the kingdom. It’s a game of skill and strategy combined with the luck of dice and cards.

About Nomad Games

The studio was formed in 2011 by a small team of veteran developers who are passionate about Talisman and have dedicated themselves to self-funded development of the title. First the team worked hard to secure an exclusive videogame license with Games Workshop, developing an early iPad version that clinched the deal. Now based in the sleepy village of Lymm in Cheshire, the Nomads hope to get people even more involved in development of the next game, and bring some of that Talisman magic to a much wider audience.
