Judgment day is nigh, and the endless struggle between the spirits of light and the forces of darkness is escalating. Mighty heroes are called to choose their alignment and fight to prove themselves worthy...for war between the heavens and the abyss is about to begin.
The Sacred Pool, the latest expansion for the classic board game Talisman, is now on sale at your local retailer and on our webstore! This exciting addition brings new excitement and tension to your quest for the Crown of Command.
Four new playable characters join the race for power, and never-before-seen Alternate Ending cards ensure ample replayability. Meanwhile, Stable cards bring you useful equestrian followers, and Quest Reward cards give new incentives to complete the perilous Warlock Quests!
In addition, The Sacred Pool presents compelling new reasons to watch your character’s alignment. The inclusion of Neutral Alignment cards allow you to follow new paths in Talisman and possibly receive greater rewards...if you choose the right side. Read Choose Your Path, Face Your Judgment, our preview of alignment-centered adventure cards, for more on these additions!
The Sacred Pool also introduces a number of optional variant rules that can be combined individually or as a whole to your Talisman games. If you would prefer a new, versatile end game, then simply include the Alternate Ending cards. One of the most exciting new additions that The Sacred Pool brings to Talisman are the Quest Reward cards. Previous expansions presented more ways to receive a variety of quests, however until now the ultimate reward for doing quests did not offer any reason to continue questing more than once in a single game. Quest Reward cards provide tempting new motivations to undertake the Warlock Quests, giving players new powers and treasures.
The Sacred Pool comes with 4 new characters, 72 new Adventure cards, 16 new Spell cards, 24 Quest Reward cards, and much more! Don’t be the last one to reach the Crown of Command and glimpse into the sacred waters to see if you are worthy of power...
The war between Good and Evil has begun. Head to your local retailer today to declare your alignment!
