Taskmaster The Board Game has been created.
Distributors Ginger Fox explain: "Replicating some of the challenging and frankly bonkers tasks from the show but also introducing tasks written exclusively for the game by Alex Horne, Taskmaster The Board Game includes its own fold-out Taskmaster house board complete with Garden, Kitchen, Lab and Living Room task zones. Taking it in turns to assume the role of Taskmaster, 3+ players aged 8+ have to complete a series of ludicrous tasks earning as many points as possible to become the ultimate Taskmaster champion!
"The 200 task cards feature wild and wacky timed challenges including: Make Something Beautiful Out Of A Teabag; Guess What The Taskmaster's Favourite Thing Is To Do In The Garden; Take It In Turns To Throw Something Spherical Through The Taskmaster's Human Basketball Hoop or Draw Yourself A Tattoo. Most Artistic Tattoo Wins.
"Complete with task cards, game board, rules sheet, scoreboard playing pieces, perforated paper slips, Taskmaster trophy and wipe-clean pen, the game includes secret tasks challenging players to go undetected and exclusive video tasks from Alex Horne!"
The board game will arrive in shops later this month, but is already available to buy on Amazon (see listing below), retailing at £20. However, it should be noted that at the time of writing, only one unit is in stock.
Alex Horne says: "Yes, I've helped craft and design the official Taskmaster boardgame that means you can play the game and take part in the show in an organised but ridiculous way. You'll get a tiny Taskmaster trophy, a beautiful plan of the house and loads of bespoke tasks, as well as video links to special group tasks from me, the Taskmaster's Assistant (Alex Horne)."
The board game follows on from an updated version of the Taskmaster book, first published in 2018, which was released earlier this month. Recently over 1000 fans turned up to small park in Buckinghamshire, having followed the instructions detailed in the book to meet at the coordinates on a set date. Horne said of the gathering: "I was overjoyed and overwhelmed by the number of people who turned up. I had no idea people were that into picnics or coordinates."
