Alex Horne - Taskmaster: 200 Extraordinary Tasks For Ordinary People

Experience the insanity of Taskmaster first-hand, with show creator Alex Horne's book based on the BAFTA-nominated international hit comedy series.

Build yourself a box and think outside of it. Your time starts now...

Taskmaster is Dave's flagship game show with a difference. As the Taskmaster, Greg Davies sets a series of ridiculous tasks to a group of comedians with Alex Horne assisting as his right-hand man, coaxing the hopeful champions to think creatively while completing various challenges - from trying to paint the best picture of a horse (while sitting on an actual horse), to destroying a cake in a beautiful way.

Taskmaster: The Book Of Champions is the first book to accompany Dave's biggest-ever original series. It's a fully-interactive guide to indulging your competitive streak and challenging your friends and family to attempt insane tasks from the comfort of your own living room. From making the most artistic tea-stain on the page to creating a self-portrait while blindfolded, this book requires you to think - and draw - outside of the box. Rivalry is encouraged, dodgy tactics rewarded and bribes accepted.

Expect cheating. Expect arguments. Expect both cheating AND arguments.
