Greg Davies and Little Alex Horne bring you a Taskmaster Board Game based off of their award-winning show. The aim of the game is to finish with the most points but getting those points may require you to think outside the box and try to be clever with your tasks.
On the board are piles of tasks. Four piles each correspond to a different location – the kitchen, living room, lab, and garden. Alongside these, there are secret tasks and final tasks, meaning in all, there are 200 different task cards! Before each game, decide on how many tasks you want to complete, and then, each round, it is up to the Taskmaster to decide from which of the four location piles to choose the task. Each player will have a secret task to carry out during the whole game, and if the game ends without that task being detected, the player will get 3 bonus points.
The Taskmaster (either a rotating role, or a permanent game-long role) decides how to awards points. A points scheme based on the number of players (for example, if there are 4 players taking part in a task, the winner gets 4 points, 2nd place 3 points, and so on) is sensible. However, the Taskmaster has the final say and can give points however they choose to, and their word is final.
After the agreed number of tasks has been completed, the final task then takes place. Scan the QR code on a final task card which will take you to a video from Taskmaster’s very own Little Alex Horne, who will instruct you on what task all players will compete in.
Best of luck and always remember – in any questions, queries, or quibbles, the Taskmaster decides!
