We love the Taskmaster series and TBH I have a slightly inappropriate crush on Greg Davies. Admittedly given his height and my lack of it we would make a very odd looking couple but I do love a man who makes me laugh.
Taskmaster is one of those rare tv shows which we can watch as a family with everyone from age 11 upwards enjoying the antics of the comedians watched over and judged by Alex Horne and Greg.
We love the randomness of it and the imaginative nature of the tasks and can now join in the fun at home with a fabulous new board game for 3+ players aged 8 and over.
The board game is beautifully designed and relatively simple. Everyone gets the chance to be the Taskmaster whilst cradling a tiny version of the OG master's glorious head.
The box contains a game board, rules sheet, scoreboard playing pieces, perforated paper slips, a Taskmaster trophy, 200 wild and wacky task cards and a wipe clean pen for the playing pieces.
I don't want to spoil the surprise too much but the first task I picked was to make something beautiful out of a teabag in five minutes. You might also be asked to wrap something unexpected in a tea towel with the hardest item to identify winning. How about spending 200 seconds eating the best picture out of a slice of bread?
The whole game should take between 30-45 minutes so perfect for a post dinner game. I reckon it would be good over video call for virtual meet ups - you might just have to nominate one taskmaster per game.
We all need something to cheer us up right now and this game will certainly bring smiles to the faces of fans of the show who get to enjoy some of the mayhem from their own homes.
