About Our Company
Talisman Games has a long history. Founded in 1982 as a Play-by-Mail (PBM) game company, we have gone by many names. In 1993 we discontinued all of our PBM products and brought up a BBS, but the BBS environment was soon superceded by the up-and-coming Internet. From there, it was a short jump to the Web. More recently, company management has changed hands and a new web site has been developed for easier play. Converting PBM games to web-based systems is a lengthy process, but we are excited to bring you the first of our games, Galac-Tac, as we continue to bring others into the new environment. We hope that you will enjoy them.
How does the Web site work? When we were a PBM company, we charged for each turn processed. In most cases, each and every turn cost at least six dollars. Now, you can subscribe to our web site for only five dollars a month, and play as many turns in as many games as you want! All reports are displayed on your web browser (and easily printable) and your turns are all entered on a web page as well. Some games even have 3rd-party add-ons that help you play the game off-line.
If you played in any of our games in the past, please let us know! We will be happy to give you some free play time or an enhanced set-up in Midgard or Gateway when they become available.
