Omens and curses afflict the land in The Harbinger Expansion, as that mysterious entity wanders the board, and four decks of Omen cards track the spreading curse. Includes 3 new characters, 2 new endings, new Omen cards and Terrain cards, and the Harbinger. MSRP is $24.99.

Games Workshop has announced that the new Talisman will be sold only through its distribution partners in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Australia, and Scandinavia, and will not be sold direct to Games Workshop and Warhammer stores.
Talisman’s fourth edition had been produced and distributed by Fantasy Flight Games prior to the termination of the two companies’ license arrangement (see “Fantasy Flight, Games Workshop End Licensing Relationship”).
