This expansion pack for Talisman 4th edition (revised) provides a new board that fits onto one corner, creating a new region. There are new Adventure cards specifically for use in the Dungeon only, and a set of new characters to choose from.

Despite being easy to access from the Outer region, the Dungeon is very tough. It has appropriate and atmospheric encounters from its cards and spaces, such as goblins, ogres, a torturer, and a final encounter with the "Lord of Darkness". The final encounter can, if you do well enough, transport you straight to the Crown of Command. After a few plays where each winner had taken this route, we house-ruled that at most you could get to the Inner Region. The treasure cards for defeating the final boss have some excellent choices, and are a nice reward for making it through the dangerous final section.

The new characters are not particularly linked to the dungeon, but are a nice extra.

Overall, a nice addition to your game, providing a new route to victory.

Talisman The Dungeon Expansion is an expansion pack for the 4th Edition of Talisman. There are now several of these expansions produced, to a high quality, by the excellent Fantasy Flight games team, but is it worth the money? Well on the whole yes. The Dungeon expansion like the other big box expansion (The Highlands) adds another board to the game which sits along the edge of the main board. This increases the playing space required quite considerably. The expansion features extra characters, additional adventure cards which link into the dungeon section and specific dungeon cards. The components are excellent as you would have come to expect from FF games and the expansion adds to the overall storytelling nature of the game. If I have a couple of negatives to reduce this to two stars they would be that the board can be passed through in only a few turns and so you perhaps don't get the full experience. In addition, the expansion is a little too like the original game and doesn't add much in the way of game play. To some this is perhaps a good thing. It does however, offer a different route to win the game and so if you liked FF's Talisman remake but want to invest to increase the longevity of the game this may just be what you are looking for.

Great expansion with top quality! The board is great and packs a lot of new dangerous and very very strong foes. Somehow thats the main reason why it doesnt get the 5th star... If you want to play with it, you'll have to build up your character, otherwise you'lll be meatgrinded! Never the less, its a great expansion to an already fantastic game!

Great expansion adds a new dimension to the game, Make sure you have a big table to play it tho as it really adds to the size of the board

A good expansion. We have played it a couple of times, however we have not yet completed it successfully as you do need to have quite a high strength or craft to get to the end. Good extra characters and adventure cards link the main board with the expansion nicely.

Another excellent expansion to the brilliant Talisman - if you have an afternoon (and evening) to spare Talisman is a great game and the various expansions add new rules, new opportunities and new characters to the game.
