A Great British Baking Show board game has just been revealed, and it’s due out later in August 2022.
Designed for two to four players, The Great British Baking Show Game features you as bakers racing to match recipes. Each match should last around 20 minutes and is suitable for ages 10 and up.
Created by Ravensburger (the publisher behind some of the best board games of recent years, including Disney Villainous and the upcoming Star Wars Villainous), players will have to decide whether to quickly gather the ingredients and risk the infamous “soggy bottom”. or take their time and potentially get left behind. The box-art also reveals that iconic elements like the Hollywood handshake are included.
According to game developer Shanon Lyon, the team “went through dozens of iterations to get the perfect feel. We wanted gameplay that captured the humor, time pressure, and wholesome elements of the series.”
Alongside cards like “Help!” which replicate the sportsmanship of the series by giving struggling players a lifeline, Ravensburger also tried to get close to the source material in the game’s artwork. Specifically, they were able to use the same artist who draws the cake concept art (or “baking illustrations”) for the series. This means the Great British Baking Show board game is an authentic homage to the series with the same aesthetic.
Given that it’s in stores from August 2022, it won’t be long before we can try The Great British Baking Show game for ourselves. Until then, be sure to check out these board game deals for a fresh addition to your next game night.
