The original Talisman was released in 1983 as a fantasy-themed game that sees players progress through Outer, Middle, and Inner Regions, each of which have different difficulty levels. Players make checks using 6-sided dice and add their stat score to determine whether a check is successful or a failure. Players boost their stats using items and followers, but they can only reach the the final area known as the Crown of Command by collecting a Talisman. The objective is to be the first to reach the Crown of Command and use its power to eliminate all other players. Numerous special editions of Talisman have been released over the years with themes like Harry Potter, Batman, and Kingdom Hearts.
