Achievement guide for a digital edition of board game Talisman.
 
Guide is meant for everybody I will write description on how achievements are obtained with additional tips on how to obtain them fast and if possible with least amount of effort.
 
Obtain them how ever you like 🙂
 
 

Introduction

Welcome to the Talisman: Digital Edition – Achievement Guide
 
 
This guide is meant for everybody casual players and completionists alike.
 
I will do my best to describe how to unlock each achievement.
 
Majority are self explanatory but some are a bit confusing and some are just luck based or take long time to setup hence why I hope this guide will assist you.
 
 
Under section “Suggestions on how to play” I will describe the way I did almost all these achievements, you are welcome to modify the tactic as you wish.
 
 
THIS GUIDE IS A WORK IN PROGRESS
 
IT WILL BE UPDATED
 
ANY SUGGESTIONS OR TACTICS ARE WELCOME
 
GRAMMAR MISTAKES ARE TO BE EXPECTED SINCE ENGLISH IS MY SECOND LANGUAGE 🙂

 
 
 

Suggestions on how to play

I myself got the game as a gift, haven’t purchased a single expansion so far.
 
Every Monday game gives a single expansion for free for people to try out, which allows you to unlock achievements without buying the said expansion.
 
Games is fun and if you wish to support developer you are more then welcome to go to their store page
 
 
Here is how you unlock expansions even if you bought them or are using the weekly free one:

I highly suggest you TURN OFF “No Respawn” under “House Rules”
 
That way you and other players can play until winning condition of the game is met.

As you level up your profile you will unlock Runestones.
 
Be sure to TURN THEM ON under “House Rules”
 
They are really useful early game and even later in game

HOTSEAT
 
 
Easiest way to obtain achievements is to play alone in a “Hotseat” game or playing versus “Local player”
 
That way you control every aspect of the game, and trust me certain achievements require a certain degree of setup that requires A LOT of luck to have in AI or Online games.
 
Be sure to remember to change from “AI PLAYER” to “LOCAL PLAYER” by just clicking on the button.
 
 
NINJA TACTIC
 
 
I play almost all of my games versus Ninja.
 
Reasons behind it:
 

  • He can Evade almost all encounters which is really useful since in most cases you want to keep them for your Main character
  • He can’t take Followers, including followers which are mandatory for pick up
  • Since he can avoid almost all encounter he can land on locations such as Graveyard, Chapel, Church etc. and by choosing option “Don’t Encounter” he will open additional Adventure cards which for me personally was often useful
  • Even if he has to fight, he has “Secret Strike” option which helps if you want to keep him alive

 
 
YOU UNLOCK ACHIEVEMENTS WITH YOU MAIN CHARACTER
 
 
In general your Main character is the ONLY ONE WHO CAN UNLOCK ACHIEVEMENTS.
 
This is really important, your Local player is just there for the ride, you don’t bother giving him any useful items or give him opportunity to increase his stats and he should leave all Enemies to your main character to farm for himself
 
 
RUNESTONES
 
 
This one is up to preference
 
This is my go to setup in majority of games unless I focus on Craft.
 
 
Talisman: Digital Edition - Achievement Guide - WIP - Suggestions on how to play - 4273803
 
 
Majority of fights are resolved with Strength and with reduced trophies needed to upgrade it you will quickly have 20+ Strength and just breeze through games.
 
I prefer taking extra 3 lives to give me some breathing space so I know I can lose some health without panicking where to heal (especially useful if you play as Evil character who can’t heal at Chapel)
 
Needless to say you will know which Runestone setup you prefer or need based on game you are going into the more you play.
 
Which brings me to another point.
 
 
STRENGTH OR CRAFT PATH TOWARDS CROWN OF COMMAND
 
 
I prefer Strength, because other then Death puzzle it’s much easier.
 
Craft one requires sacrificing either health or followers and “Pits” is just annoying when you get a bunch of Pitfiends to fight; but as usual per personal preference.
 
 
CHOOSING A WINNING CONDITION / ENDING
 
 
This one is situational.
 
If you are doing a certain ending for achievement then naturally you will choose that one.
 
But if I’m doing a generic run where I’m just finishing up some minor achievement I choose “Race to the Crown”
 
That way I know whenever I’m done with achievement in this game I can just rush to Crown of Command and the moment I land game is over and done.

LAST WORDS
 
 
Majority of descriptions will assume you play in a hotseat game, so if you aren’t doing it be sure to read the steps I’ve made and modify your tactic accordingly.
 
As stated before this particular guide is made to make achievement hunting as easy as possible; you are more then welcome to obtain in your own condition I just hope my tactic / explanation will help you clear any confusion on how the achievement is obtained.
 
 
Happy hunting!

The Nether Land – Expansion (UNFINISHED)

 
 
 

The Blood Moon – Expansion

Talisman: Digital Edition - Achievement Guide - WIP - The Blood Moon - Expansion - F49A07CNot All Doom and Gloom
 
As the Doomsayer, in one turn, replenish one fate and gain one spell as a result of any player drawing cards
 
 
Not so difficult as much as RNG, Doomsayer can replenish fate everytime a Enemy card is drawn and can get a spell every time an Event card is drawn.
 
So the trick is to draw both types of those cards in same turn.
 
My advice is playing hotseat game versus Ninja (he can evade most encounters and can’t pick up followers allowing for having safe spots to land on) and reach inner circle and move between Oasis (Draw 2 cards) and Hidden Valley (Draw 3 cards) and be sure you have both Fate and Spells spent (so you can actually get it when drawing cards) and well at some point you will draw both Enemy and Event card which will regen Fate and give you spell and giving you the achievement also.
 
 
Talisman: Digital Edition - Achievement Guide - WIP - The Blood Moon - Expansion - 5E2C7F7One Man’s Trash…
 
As the Grave Robber, draw an object from the top of the discard pile

 
 
One of Grave Robber abilities is that every time you are about to draw Adventure Card it gives you an option between an Unknown card or one from discard pile already used in the game so far.
 
Achievement will unlock if instead of drawing a new one you choose to draw an Object from discard pile (it will most likely be a bag of gold, or you can intentionally go sell some object at Alchemist to increase the chance of getting the object to draw from discard pile)
 
 
Talisman: Digital Edition - Achievement Guide - WIP - The Blood Moon - Expansion - 21DF3CBMr Pointy
 
As the Vampire Hunter, find the Wooden Stake

 
 
Simple, while playing as Vampire Hunter find and pick up Wooden Stake item.
 
 
Talisman: Digital Edition - Achievement Guide - WIP - The Blood Moon - Expansion - E8E58B6
 
 
Talisman: Digital Edition - Achievement Guide - WIP - The Blood Moon - Expansion - A2C272CLaid to Rest
 
Use the Wooden Stake against the Vampire Prince

 
 
You need to obtain Wooden stake and face Vampire Prince enemy.
 
Once you fight him be sure to choose Wooden stake at start of fight and then during fight activate it.
 
You will unlock the achievement the moment you use the card, winning the fight is optional.
 
P.S. If you encounter Vampire Prince while encountering “City of Shadows” card and using Wooden Stake on him will NOT work

Talisman: Digital Edition - Achievement Guide - WIP - The Blood Moon - Expansion - A09AF89Meet My Master
 
Force another character to roll on the Werewolf’s chart by beating them in combat

 
 
Fairly simple, player 1 needs to have lycanthropy and must encounter another character who doesn’t have it. Win in a fight and you will unlock this achievement.
