10 NOV 2021 - Developer and publisher Marmalade Game Studio is delighted to announce the launch of the first official digital version of Taboo ever to be made for mobile devices, with in-game video chat.


Developed especially for iOS and Android, the beloved word guessing game from Hersch joins Marmalade's top selling digital editions of classic Hasbro board games.


The physical Taboo game is already a firm favourite at parties around the world. Breaking the ice and testing friendships, the game splits a group into two teams for inevitably loud and hilarious entertainment. Your team must scramble to guess what’s written on the card, without the “clue giver” using the word itself or five other taboo words listed on the card.


With Marmalade's new mobile edition you can take the noisy fun with you anywhere. Team up with friends for in-person action using Local Party Mode, or take the party online with in-game high-quality video chat for up to 6 players.


Matching the original table top edition, Taboo comes with all the original prompt cards fans have come to expect, and for more specialised content, there are exciting themed decks available in-app.


Cristina Mereuta, CEO of Marmalade Game Studios said:

“Taboo is pure chaotic fun. It’s very noisy, and apart from not using the taboo words, there aren’t many rules. It’s the perfect multiplayer game and it’s definitely best played face-to-face, which is where Marmalade has a unique edge in mobile gaming. Our Bubble in-game video chat means you can play together wherever you are, as if you’re in the same room. This feature easily sets our official game apart from the rest, and we couldn’t be happier with how seamless it is. We know you’re going to have so much fun!”


Taboo continues Marmalade Game Studio's tradition of crafting high-quality premium digital game night experiences, true to the original games, with no ads or pop-ups. Other premium Marmalade digital board games include THE GAME OF LIFE and THE GAME OF LIFE 2, MONOPOLY, CLUE/CLUEDO and BATTLESHIP.


Now you can bring any room to life with Taboo on your mobile. Whether your friends are far away, or right there with you, you’ve got all you need to get a party started.


Play Taboo - Official Party Game now on iOS and Android devices!
