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.
