Talisman is a classic board game that has been enjoyed by fantasy fans for nearly 30 years. As one of many characters, including 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 skillful decision-making based on dice and cards. Nomad Games brought the multiplayer version of the board game to PC, tablets and mobile devices in 2014, with the brand selling over one and a half million pieces to date.
