I just acquired Talisman the Adventure off Ebay. Its in nearly unplayed condition but the shade of green on the backs of the Adventure cards does not match the original game and the 1st expansion. I guess its not a huge problem but does seem to be a tad unfortunate. Is this the way it should be?
The President has been kidnapped by ninjas. Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the president?
There is even a positive side to it: you can sort out the different editions after play. I always thought that a good thing, as we sometimes didn't have the time to play a long game with all expansions.
And I agree, you can just mix it all together, it doesn't really matter, that you can see which edition the next card will be. Although the Talisman Dragons cards always needed careful evaluation: am I strong enough to encounter a possible dragon? On the other hand did that expansion have the most powerful items. Stressful gaming experience!
