Talisman

Many board games with creative fantasy themes can get to be complex. They can be difficult to learn and can turn off the casual player. Talisman is not this way. The game mechanics are simple. It is easy to learn. It is also easy to teach people who are not hard core gamers. It is a good game for people who are not as experienced in table top gaming.

With simple fast moving mechanics and a fun setting and beautiful art I suggest Talisman to anyone who is not looking for a commitment when it comes to a board game. Even experienced gamers will have fun running around the board exploring all the fun stuff. It is easy to get lost in just wondering around and forgetting to actually try to win the game.

I really like Tokaido. The expansion seems to alter the game quite a bit though. Often when you land on a space you know what you will get or do. With this expansion it really changes things up. Tokaido is not a game with dice, so the addition of a die to the game kind of changes up the experience for me. I like the calm pace of the game as it it. When the die is added I begin to feel that tension before I role it to ‘gamble’. The new options seem to change up the pace and make game play feel different than it ever was with the base game.

This game is one I bought with my kids in mind. They really like it. It is easy enough for just about anyone to pick up on. No reading, math or anything but matching colors. The whole game centers around pulling a card and matching the color to build a snake.

My Children love the game. They get excited to see how big they can get the snakes. I get into it too when playing with them. It’s nice to have a game that we can enjoy together. Well worth the price if you are looking for something you can share with children and enjoy doing with them.

This game is great for Replay with my daughter. She is six and loves to take a role of the ‘game master’ which really means she keeps track of the cards that get turned over and when they need to be pulled off the deck. It’s an easy to learn game that kids can pick up and master quick.

I had a lot of fun with my children playing it. I suppose it can be played by adults as well, I just have never really pulled it out to play without my children.

There are quick ways you can change the game play for slight variations and it’s something that promotes memory and thought in a game for children.

My family plays this often. I would say that in some ways it reminds me a great deal of playing Magic with a board and minis. I would say I like this a great deal more than Magic in that the game is complete and I am not buying more cards for it and it seems more simplified. The boards change randomly depending on how they are laid out and each game seems to have a different flair with the randomness of the cards and decisions of the players. We have a great time with this one and it is not as consuming as other games can be.

The game is addictive and you can really immerse yourself in it. It did take me a bit to really figure out and each expansion adds a little more to learn. The expansions and the Old Ones really add a lot to the game. The game seldom feels repetitive and if it ever does it is easy to alter with the expansions. It is difficult to play at times because of the length of the game. I love it, just getting a group together early enough to finish a game can be the most difficult part of playing.

So far this has to be my favorite board game.

I put on some Nawang Khechog for quiet and peacefulness meditation music for a great relaxing evening of gaming. What I like about Tokaido is that it is a low stress low competition game. It moves quickly compared to other games I am used to playing. The experience is unique compared to other games I play in that I can kind of breathe, sip my tea sit back and just take in the game almost like meditation. I like that I have discovered how different gaming can be.
