The images and packaging made the game look very inviting. As a fan of the TV show the idea of a play at home game was great. Instructions very easy to follow and informative.  Me and my husband played this game with my 11 and 7 year olds. We all really enjoyed it and found lots of fun. The game was challenging but also easy enough to make it enjoyable. We played it with the children and then also with adult friends. We played with 2 adults and 2 children and then with 6 adults. It was more fun with more players. My son is 7 he turns 8 in July. He found it easy and fun to play and probably enjoyed it the most. He is now a fan of the show. We have played its  few times with the children and then with friends. My husband and I watch the show but he children and our friends had not watched the show before playing the game with us. My children and friends are now fans of the show thanks to the game. I think the gold trophy would have been better if it was a bit more robust rather than made out of card. Also it could have done with coming with a pen and paper for scoring. It was great fun trying to complete the tasks and made family games night fun and exciting.  It was great fun trying to find the objects around the house to complete the tasks. The children enjoyed the fun of hunting for things to carry out the tasks and being allowed to use their imagination and be crazy. The game is a bit flimsy in places but overall good quality.  It is very good value as it is a game that you can play numerous times. I would buy this as it is great to take to parties but also great for quiet nights in with the family. We have recommended and the friends who played with us went on to purchase the game as a gift for a family member. Great fun perfect for family games nights but also great for parties with a few friends. A versatile game that’s great for everyone.  Aimee Hamer – Harrison 7 Years

My daughter was excited because she loves taskmasters. I thought it looked like a fun game. I think that a taskmasters board game is an amazing idea, it’s a fun game for the whole family. The kids found it easier than me to follow the instructions. I thought they were a bit long winded and took me a little bit to get my head round to be honest. It was great fun to play and gave everyone playing and spectators lots of laughs. The game was both entertaining and challenging and most of all good fun. We have played with 3 players so far but can’t wait to get the extended family round to play in teams. My children enjoyed the game as it was an easy game to get the hand of and was easy to play. It was also fun to watch other people do the task, so it was an entertaining game all round. We have played this game a few times now.  I had not watched the TV series but my kids have watched it and enjoy the show. I tend not to watch much TV so would not watch the show. I think everything in the box was good quality and I loved the details of the instructions looking like a task but I think it would be a good idea if the portrait boards were whiteboards to save on the waste of the stickers. The kids loved the video tasks from Alex. I really liked the fact it is a good game that’s fun for the whole family. My children loved making everyone laugh while completing their tasks. Everything in this game is great quality. I think this game is good quality and will be well used so great value too. I would buy this as it gets kids off of technology while still having fun. I would recommend as it is a fun game that families with kids would enjoy or even just adults would have great fun playing this game. It is a great game to play that gets everyone moving and laughing. We had an amazing experience with this game, it got everyone talking and moving about having a great time.

When this arrived looked well presented. The concept is good as it represents the game show well. We did not find the instructions easy to follow and we watched the TV show to get an understanding of the game. It was a fun game, but a lot of the tasks are dependent on you having items in the house. It is entertaining,  but a lot of the tasks are not doable without wasting items in the kitchen. 5 of us played this game, our son played in a team with me as he didn’t understand the rules. I do agree this is ideal for all the family. My son enjoyed the game playing as part of a team because he did not understand the rules of the game.  I would say it would be a struggle for children with ASD / learning disabilities to grasp the concept of this game.  We played this once. We watched the show once we received the game to try and understand what it was about, but we had not seen it before. Since receiving the game our son has asked to watch the show as he found it fun. The game and contents were good quality.  We all liked the silliness of the game. The overall quality of this board game is very good. For the price it is good value. Personally I would not purchase this game.  While the concept was very entertaining for our family not enough of the cards would have been doable as you need a lot of things in the house or for the players to make things in the kitchen. I would recement it to friends and family with older children, 15 years upwards. While the concept of the game is entertaining and it closely represents the game show, we feel the game needs more tasks that are doable without extra equipment from your house. The game was entertaining while we were able to complete tasks that didn’t require to many extra resources, but soon became a bit of a chore when we had to keep discarding cards that required things like rolls of toilet paper or sticking your fingers in food etc. I feel that to make this more of a game to suit 8 + I would need to go through the cards beforehand and discard the ones that require to many resources etc. The lack of a definitive ending to the game made it a struggle for my son. I feel this game would suit a family with older children 15+ or an adult’s party style game. Natasha Shaw – Thomas 12 Years
