I never played Talisman. I have just recently kind of became a board game guy.

The art that's on the board is absolutely fantastic. It's that fantasy art from the late 70s and early 80s. I'm just guessing from your avatar but that time period for fantasy is your favorite?

The original version is what I play and this is the art on the cards:

Same here man, it's classic stuff.

I also like the old pulp Conan magazines like your avatar and the old Heavy Metal, 70s - 80s mags as well. But that's off topic.

What's some other tabletop RPGs other than DnD have you played?

I played some of this back in the day.

Haven't played D&D since I was about 13 but I would play it again with my sons in a heartbeat.

Have played a few good board games like Settlers of Cataan, Ticket to Ride and some other titles that took hours to play.

Oh geez. I have dabbled in lots and lots. Now so far as dedicated play for lengthy times. Call of Cthulhu. Vampire the Masquerade. Mage the Ascension. Shadowrun.

Recently no hobby time other than the 360.

I tried to play Mechwarrior a couple of times as well as the accompanying Battletech game. That was back in high school.

I remember playing a Robotech as well, I want to say Macross Saga? I was always confused with Robotech storylines. But yeah Battletech. Mechwarrior & Robotech are the ones I remember and I tried them all.

Ah, RPGs... (Warhammer RPG, RoleMaster, D&D, Star Wars RPG, Call of Cthulu, ...)

And related board games... (Talisman, Battle Royal, Mighty Empires, Dracula, ...)

And miniature figure wargames... (Warhammer, Warhammer 40k, Judge Dredd, ...)

I've got a cupboard full of these games waiting for my boys to show any interest!

Recently played a bit of Warty40 and Judge Dredd miniatures with them, haven't tried them out on any RPGs yet.

Same here Tonka. I have a long wait until my son is old enough. I am looking forward to it though.

Talisman is coming to the PS4


Talisman: Digital Edition rolls the dice on PS4 and PS Vita this spring



Games Workshops’ role-playing board game offers Cross Play and local play


Roll a d6 to grab the Crown of Command
(https://blog.eu.playstation.com/2017/01/18/talisman-digital-edition-rolls-the-dice-on-ps4-and-ps-vita-this-spring/)

Looks like a direct conversion of the board game onto the PS4; no animated characters or special effects.

Nice. Port the PC version over. Makes sense.

I've wanted to play D&D since it first came out when I was a kid, but none of my friends were ever interested. Now I have no friends.

I've considered joining one of the online tabletop sites (Roll 20 comes to mind) but haven't yet. I would still love to get in a game.

Vita? Seems they don't even sell Vita's in the UK anymore. Maybe it still has one last breath left.

How did the MPs & Dragons session go?

I'm afraid I didn't get to watch the twitch and don't seem to be able to see the recording (might be because I'm at work).

Unfortunately we had to postpone. HB called in sick. Forgot to move the event on here, sorry. We'll try to start next week if everything goes according to plan.
