Temple Run Board Game
The app Temple Run has established itself as a runaway hit and quickly become a guilty pleasure of just about anyone with an iPad, iPhone, tablet or Android device. Spin Master decided there was more to be mined from this cultural phenomenon if they turned it into a board game. According to our testers, they accomplished their goal. Game play is really quite fast so if you have just a few moments before dinnertime you can squeeze in a quick one. Just as with the app you need to go through a series of obstacles to escape the dangers that are right on your tail, namely some really nasty monkeys. There is an electronic element that really amps up the adrenaline nicely as it simulates the sounds of the chase. Here is one more example of an app making the jump from the small screen to a table top game. Not every attempt will pan out, but this one does.
