Developer and publisher Marmalade Game Studio has today announced a digital version of the hit tabletop party game Taboo for mobile devices.


Developed for iOS and Android, the famous word guessing game joins Marmalade’s roster of premium digital editions of beloved board games, and with in-game video chat, you can play Taboo with your friends even when you’re not in the same place. Taboo – Official Party Game is available for pre-order on iOS and Android now.

A welcome addition to any party, Taboo – Official Party Game is a chaotic explosion of fun that pits teams of players against each other in a vocabulary wrangling contest. The winning team will correctly guess the most words. As the timer ticks down, players must scramble to describe what is written on their card without using the word itself or the five related “taboo” words on the card.

Marmalade’s is the first official digital edition of the game and allows players to take the fun wherever they go. Team up with friends for in-person action using Local Party Mode. Or take the party online with Marmalade’s high-quality video chat functionality in Online Video Mode, suitable for up to 6 players.

As with the original tabletop edition, Taboo – Official Party Game comes with all of the original hilarious prompt cards that fans have come to expect but can be expanded upon with exciting specialised game packs.

Cristina Mereuta, CEO at Marmalade Game Studio, said:
“At Marmalade we love bringing people together through games. For us, it’s all about giving people a reason to connect, and Taboo is a brilliant game for parties and gatherings. It’s fun, smart, and with our famous in-game video feature, it’s perfect for mobile. We can’t wait for players to get caught up in this party favourite, wherever they are.”

Taboo continues Marmalade Game Studio’s tradition of crafting high-quality premium digital game night experiences. It’s true to the original games, with no ads or pop-ups.

Now that players can bring the room to life with a game that fits in their pocket, Taboo is the app everyone needs with them at their next party or gathering.

Pre-order Taboo – Official Party Game on iOS and Android devices now.
