Unofficial Talisman Game legacy

I continue to receive requests for a download of the Unofficial Talisman Game. Unfortunately I am unable to provide a link under the conditions of the "cease and desist" order from Games Workshop. This is such a shame because version 9 was freaking awesome! It is a shame that GW feel that they have to protect their Intellectual Property so vigorously as I share the opinion of many of you that the Unofficial Talisman PC Game was nothing but a free 'walking advert' for Games Workshop. Perhaps it is because Games Workshop own a property that is so vague and ephemeral ("Wizard", "Psionic Blast", "Rune sword", "Maiden"....... what?! I can't call my guy a wizard??!"). I am being flippant, but there are many examples of GW stomping on the fan-made creations out there because:
GW will not tolerate your activities as they could lead to confusion in the mind of the consumer
GW "cease and desist"
You might enjoy our other games PoopScoop, ASCIIBombman or Starfunk.

Thank you for all your kind words and I hope your quest for version 9 is successful and avoids any nasty communication from the GW Bully Boys.


Just in case there is any confusion in the minds of any of our readers.  The following image is a screenshot from the new Nomad Games Officially licensed version of Talisman:


This is a screen shot from the Unofficial game by the amateur programmer T Street from "Superdecade Games" (A completely unofficial version of Talisman, in no way endorsed by Games Workshop that has been removed from all sites we control.  Phew!  Oh yeah, and these images have been used completely without permission, just in case you were in anyway "confused" as a "consumer")



The Official Talisman Game announced


Nomad Games Limited has secured the rights from Games Workshop to develop Talisman specifically for play on digital and connected game devices.

Read all about it by following this link.

Here is an extract from their site (my emphasis):

At last, the superb fantasy adventure board game that is ‘Talisman’ makes it into the domain of the video game. The first release is called ‘Talisman Prologue’ - a version based on the full-rule set that is designed to let solo players quickly explore the nature of each character and the board itself in a series of challenging quests.
 'At last...' ??!!?! They must have forgotten about this and this !  ;-)

Unofficial Talisman Computer Game Torrent

Unofficial Talisman Computer Game Torrent

It has come to my attention recently that the Unofficial Talisman Computer Game (although not available on any sites I control) does exist on some torrent sites.  Follow this link for a version 6 torrent.  You will need torrent software to start the download, something like utorrent.  Enjoy, although version 6 was the first release I got up to version 9 before Games Workshop sent me the 'cease and desist'.
