Taboo joins the Marmalade mobile board game roster
Marmalade is not at its first attempt. Already at the helm ofadaptation of Monopoly or The Game of Life on mobile, the studio is adding a new title to its catalog of board games on Android and iOS. Taboo mobile arrives on smartphones in evening games with a video function to better play together remotely.
More and more board games on mobile
VSluedo, Monopoly, Taboo, for the most classic but also Catania or Wingspan, board games are legion on the video game medium. Let’s go back to the principle of Taboo for those who would discover the game. It is a competitive team game for 6 players maximum. The goal is to do guess words to his partner in a given time. To do this, you draw a card with the word to be guessed but also “taboo” words that you are not allowed to say in your explanation. So, to make your partner guess lasagna, you can not say: pasta, layer, sauce, cheese and cooked. You have to be creative to describe the final word and avoid missteps!
The advantage of the Taboo app over other online versions of similar games is that it hasa video chat function integrated. This allows you to not have to use any additional app to play and communicate with your friends. Video chat has also appeared on Monopoly recently.
Now let’s move on to the game’s lifespan. In addition to the initial guessing card pack, you can get expansion packs on themes such as animals, food or sport, for example. And, if you’re in the mood for a game, the Mystery Pack is still a good random option. Note that Taboo is currently available for pre-order on Android and iOS.
As you can see in this Taboo screenshot, Marmalade is making available the local and remote play ! And for fans of online board games of all kinds, Board Game Arena remains your best option. Thus, you do not have to reach for the wallet systematically.
