Join us for the next monthly event designed to play larger games we don’t get a chance to play often. This month’s Featured Game Meetup will occur on Sunday, February 9 from 11AM - 5PM at HobbyTown USA (3500 South College Ave, Fort Collins, CO 80525).
This month, we will be playing the 4th edition of the popular adventure game, Talisman, from Fantasy Flight Games. Rules will be taught before we start.
Before signing up, please check out the game at BoardGameGeek (http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/27627/talisman-revised-4th-edition) and see the Board to Death video review below to determine if it is something you will enjoy.
How does this event differ from Wednesdays and Saturdays? This monthly event will focus on games where playing time and/or table space is an issue. A specific game is offered once a month, so that we can get the maximum number of players scheduled.
RSVP Policy: RSVP’s are required for this event, due to the limited number of players allowable in each game. This month’s game will be limited to two tables of six players each. Please be aware that we have set aside six hours to play and cover the rules. The recommended playing time is much shorter, but this is a game that can run long with new players. If you feel that you will arrive late and/or need to leave early, please RSVP for a different event so that we can schedule full tables.
Game Description from Fantasy Flight Games (http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_minisite_sec.asp?eidm=29&esem=1): In Talisman, you’ll embark on a perilous quest for the ultimate treasure, the legendary Crown of Command. You’ll choose the warrior, priest, wizard, or one of eleven other heroes with powers both magical and mighty, and you’ll race your opponents through a perilous realm. Each player will roll a die to determine his movement around the regions of the board, where he will encounter dangerous foes and claim powerful rewards, all in preparation for his final climactic test.
But for those unfamiliar with this classic world of fantasy adventures, Talisman is a game like no other – indeed, it is no ordinary game at all, but a fantastic quest in a world of magic and monsters. As play progresses, a story unfolds from turn to turn: a heroic epic of brave deeds, of daring encounters, of treasures and magic, of battles fought and sometimes lost, but always a tale that challenges and enthralls!
