The Magical Quest never ends

Starting in 2018 Pegasus Spiele will release four games based on the Talisman adventure board game

Friedberg, 11. December 2017: 2018 will be a special year for Games Workshop’s Talisman adventure board game. The mother of all fantasy board games will celebrate its 35th anniversary and the world of Talisman will be expanded by new games. Pegasus Spiele will develop four games with worldwide rights under a license with Games Workshop. The first game will be released in 2018.

The first edition of the legendary Talisman adventure board game was published in 1983 and instantly became an iconic fantasy game. Players are travelling in a magical world to find ancient relics, battle fantastic creatures as well as each other and perform epic quests. Once they complete a Talisman quest, players can enter the inner world and face its challenges until they finally reach the remote Portal of Power to claim the ultimate Crown of Command.

Starting in 2018, adventures in the fantastic world of Talisman can be experienced in four new games. The first game – a children’s game by Lukas Zach and Michael Palm (The Dwarves board game) – will be released in the second half of 2018. An expandable card game, a role-playing game and a dice game will follow. The release dates for these games will be announced at a later time.

"The Talisman board game has been enjoyed for decades by fans all around the world and is a truly seminal classic," said Jon Gillard, Head of Licensing at Games Workshop. "We're excited to be exploring the world of Talisman through these fantastic new games with our partners at Pegasus Spiele. Gamers of all ages have a lot to look forward to."

Pegasus Spiele are not strangers to the world of Talisman. In 2008, Pegasus Spiele and Heidelberger Spieleverlag published the German 4th Edition. “When we were younger, we experienced many exciting adventures while playing Talisman,” remembered Andreas Finkernagel, CEO of Pegasus Spiele. “All the more, we are excited to expand the world of Talisman with new games.”

Pegasus Spiele is also the approved distributor of the English language version of Talisman 4th Edition board game in Europe and stocks the core game and the expansions; The Reaper, The Blood Moon, The City, The Woodland and The Harbinger.
