HORRIBLE BLACK VOID!!!

Yeah, now we can play the game as intended—as true men.

While I was initially worried at how it would fit in, the Time Card is actually pretty nifty (day/night sides that flip whenever an Event is drawn; creatures get -1 in combat during the day and +1 at night).

But the star of the show is the Werewolf, especially when combined with the Reaper—now you have two forces of nature stalking the board for victims. It's especially good when using one or more corner boards... if everyone clusters up in the City, for example, you can expect the Werewolf & Reaper to converge there, creating a hideous oubliette where a simple shopping trip can end in horror.

Basically my favourite expansion for Talisman 4th Ed. along with the Dragon expansion. The Day/Night changing brings more life to the board, and the presence of the Werewolf could be a surprise for unprepared players.
There are plenty of interesting and exciting cards.

Officially we have nicknamed him "Wolfie". Perhaps a tad bit of a wimpy name but it stuck I'm afraid. Very similar play to the Reaper expansion but with a twist...Now it can be Day or Night and every encounter is different depending on which it is...

A fun expansion though we don't use the werewolf that much. Already have a lot of other things in Talisman that make the game take longer.

This may be the best expansion to date for Talisman. I really like the werewolf and the day/night component. The Lunar Events were very cool environment effects. Watch out for the nasty "Living Doll". The Horrible Black Void is very sneaky.

While some of the new Adventure Cards are nice, I don't really like the Werewolf. He is no threat to the players and becoming a Lycantrophe is more of an advantage than a disadvantage. The Day/Night cycle works better that expected, but is a bit fiddly.

EDIT: Went up from a initial 7 to 9. I really like this expansion now. Actually, there are just very few cards that depend on the Lycantrophe/Werewolf rules and you can sort them out if you don't want these mechanics to be part of your game (still don't really like them). Many of the cards still require the Day/Night mechanic, but you are not forced to use the actual +/- 1 modifier. With these small modifications, this is a 9 for me since it adds LOTS of interesting Adventure Cards to the game!

This is the Expansion I would suggest You buy together with Talisman to enhance the Game dramatically. It uses a good Day/Night system, has some cool encounter and character cards and the werwolf mechanic is just great.

I'm not really keen on the Halloween-themed stuff, but most of the stuff in this expansion is great. The characters are all interesting, and day/night cycle is highly reminiscent of Castlevania II for NES. It's cool that it has a co-operative variant in one of the alternate endings, and the horrible black void is back.

The only thing that really needs houseruling out of the box is the 5 and 6 results on the Werewolf chart. It doesn't make any sense that the werewolf either teleports or grants you some kind of wish, so I would change 5 to "roll a die move the werewolf again" and 6 to "you hide, or are ignored/nothing happens".

More Talisman goodies here, though it is somewhat lacking in originality and variety in the cards. There are signs of fatigue of the designer's imagination which hopefully will be dispelled by the next expansion (presumably the third corner board). Not an essential purchase for casual Talisman players.

I like the werewolf idea but the day/night mechanic seems a bit of a hurried design. It's not awful. But seems like FFG was trying to go back to capture success of The Reaper.

Great expansion with Werewolf similar to the Reaper mechanic.

But stupidly, turning into a Werewolf is actually something GOOD, which sort of takes the point out of it. One of these cases you get with Fantasy Flight sometimes where there's great ideas, but then there's just one or two DUMB ball drops that wreck it.

See: Mansions of Madness for this.

Haven't play this expansion and i doubt we will ever play it. I have included the new characters into the list of characters to play, and some adventure cards too, that's it. The reason is being that the thick pile of adventure cards will result in the day/night effects cards to hard to come by throughout the game. And we already have a Reaper roaming the region, having another monster of Werewolf doesn't really add a lot of difference into the game. But the three new characters are cool...a very nice addition indeed.

I like this horror themed expansion and I permanently play with it added to the core game.

This expansion adds a day and night mechanic where enemies are stronger at night. There are also day and night events which give a very different feel to the game compared to just playing the base game.

Moving the Werewolf around the board started to feel a bit too gimicky for me. So I've started removing the Werewolf but leaving everything else in and it still works well.

This expansion adds some cool horror themed adventure cards and spells.

Blood Moon, interestingly should be a favorite since I love werewolves, but I have a distaste for the day/night mechanics. I do not like mixing the Halloween flavor into Talisman, unless I want a specific Halloween game, which I sometimes do. This is fixable, I just remove the cards I don't like, and highly enjoy the rest.

Werewolves! Really good expansion to spice up the
main game. Somehow it seems that being a werewolf
doesnt have any negative effects until you have to
pick up a card - and you probably know which card I
am talking about.
