Talisman - Star Wars is now available in English via USAopoly, also in Germany. The thematic coupling to the adventure board game Talisman based on George Lucas' sci-fantasy epic uses the well-known principle of quest-driven games and lets players slip into the roles of Jedi or Sith. There will also be a German version of Talisman - Star Wars, but only in the summer. The publishing house Pegasus player takes over the localization. 

“Star Wars - Talisman combines the classic roll-and-move adventure platform with the story of a generation that enables players to join the fight as Jedi or Sith, build their strengths and fight against each other to defeat the Empire or the to become a true Sith apprentice ”, is how USAopoly describes the board game, whose greatest strength with this edition is its powerful license.

Talisman - Star Wars: Adventure with famous characters

Last year USAopoly and Games Workshop canceled the thematic version of the classic board game - on May 4th. At that time there was not a lot of information about the new board game, which is basically based on the familiar framework. The focus is on various popular characters from the Star Wars universe: Rey, Ahsoka Tano, Count Dooku, Darth Maul, Darth Vader, Ezra Bridger, Kylo Ren, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker, Mace Windu, Grand Inquisitor and Seventh Sister.

The board game is now available in English, and a German version will follow in the summer via Pegasus Spiele. Talisman - Star Wars is expected to appear in August, the publisher states on its website. On the other hand, Amazon points to June 15 as the time of availability.

With the release of the game, the war between good and evil is raging again in a galaxy far, far away. Players are then again in the thick of it. In Talisman - Star Wars Edition, players embody the iconic characters from the template and visit the equally well-known homeworlds and planets from the Star Wars saga. The goal for both parties: to overthrow Emperor Palpatine from the throne in order to bring peace back to the galaxy or to usurp rulership himself.

The Talisman - Star Wars Edition is a completely independent game that transfers the Talisman principle to the Star Wars universe. Players gradually develop their characters, equip them and use various power skills. The well-known roll-and-move concept is retained: If it is a player's turn, he rolls the dice and moves his figure the number of spaces that have been rolled. This is where encounters take place: places or characters of opposing attitudes trigger actions in the game. The board game is aimed at two to six players aged around twelve and lasts between one and a half and two hours per game.

The original is a real classic as a board game. Talisman first appeared in 1993, at that time through Games Workshop. What followed were numerous new editions as well as spin-offs in the meantime. Even the latest, fourth edition is now “old fashioned”. Most recently, Fantasy Flight Games was able to publish reprints thanks to a license agreement with Games Workshop. However, the license expired in 2016. Talisman - Star Wars Edition is originally published by USAopoly, who have experience in distributing licensed board games. The German version of Talisman - Star Wars to be released via Pegasus Spiele is expected to cost around 55 euros in stores.
