Talisman game (and grub)

I'd like to host another Talisman which will likely be the final one until the fall. As before, I'd like to have 3-6 players.

I'll prepare something in my slow cooker again to help keep people fed during a supper break (some stew or a roast perhaps). Please bring a food item too, like beverages or snacks, or another supper item.

If you're not familiar with Talisman, here's a video:

It's a complex game, but it has a very easy learning curve. I have all of the expansion sets, but I'll probably use just one extension map (that way, characters will have more interaction). We can decide what additional game options we want before playing the game (such as game endings).

As mentioned, Talisman can be a lengthy game and people that can easily go into the evening hours (especially with 5-6 players), hence why I'm preparing a supper break and starting the game in the afternoon.

I'll contact attendees privately through email to provide my address and contact information (I live near Whyte Ave. and the university area). There is usually plenty of parking in the residential areas near me, bus stops are only a block away, and an LRT station is just a 10 minute walk from me.

      We definitely have different tastes in games (diversity is the spice of life after all). I enjoyed adventuring and spending time with good people.

    Hi J Rock. I just sent you a message with my address and contact info. Please let me know if you didn't receive it. Do you think you can still make it by 3pm?

    If this is the last session till autumn I should probably give Talisman one more try.

    Hey DLB. Thanks for joining. We were afraid we'd have to postpone. Just a note, the game can run a little late. Jason, what would you say is an average time, 5 hours or so? Just a heads-up because because it's a bit more of a time commitment than say a Settlers game.

      Wicked. Then let's decide when we meet tomorrow. I'm good either way.

      It's scheduled for 3pm, if that works for you both. Anyways, a "big boss" ending should ensure a good long game. But if you'd like that feeling of suspense from a potential "black void" ending, I'm good with that too

    Looks like this weekend is a tough sell. If we don't a get a third player by Friday afternoon, I reschedule for April 12th.
