I have been playing Talisman ever since it came out in 1983. I own the second edition and this is still played regularly. I also enjoy the digital version on my iPad.
Back in the 1980s I had this idea of building a three dimensional version of the board. In the late 1980s I also managed to purchase all the metal Talisman miniatures in one of Games Workshop’s amazing sales. I had the parts, I had the idea, but like most of my ideas, it stayed an idea. I eventually sold virtually all the miniatures on eBay, keeping a couple I had painted and really liked.
The idea was still there, but I doubted it was ever going to happen…
The other day though I saw this tweet.
Family game night! Tonight we’re playing TALISMAN… on steroids!!
Last year, my friend John gifted me a hand painted set of 3-D terrain for the Talisman 4th edition board game, which is not only the staple game we play in between RPGs but also our family game.

Doing some further clicking I discovered that Spare Oom Studio were selling STL files of 3D models for use with Talisman.
I really like these, but alas I don’t have a 3D printer. I think if I ever get a 3D printer I might get some, or see if I can get some printed. Need to check how they fit on the second edition board.
