I own the Talisman 4th edition game published by Black Industries. Talisman revised 4th edition is now published by Fantasy Flight Games. I have seen an upgrade pack that is supposed to make the 4th edition game compatible with the revised 4th edition and its expansion packs.
The upgrade pack contains:
- Over 160 Cards
- 14 Character Cards and Figures
- 4 Plastic Toad Figures
- 36 Fate Tokens
My questions are:
- Is this upgrade pack worth purchasing? Retail is approx. $20 USD and that seems like it could be a bit much for no new content.
- Does the new rulesheet address all the typos and misprints in the 4th edition rules and board?
- Can someone with the 4th edition use the revised 4th edition expansions without this upgrade? I know Fantasy Flight would say, "No way," but I want to know what things have changed that would make the expansions not work right.
