The Doctor Who card game was designed by Martin Wallace and is designed for three to four players. Players have the simple goal of saving the universe while coping with rivals sending the Doctor’s enemies like daleks and cybermen to conquer the very places they are trying to protect.
The box contains a rule book (also available online here), four sets of pieces (five Tardis counters and five Dalek counters), one set of game cards (127 in total), 4 starting locations, 1 game end card and 30 time tokens.
The game features Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor and companions Amy Pond, Rory and River Song as the defenders.
At the time of posting, the Doctor Who card game is available for pre-order at a 10% discount. The discount is only available for early pre-orders and, no doubt, is a handy gauge for Cubicle 7 to use to measure interest.
The image below reveals what an in-game turn might look like. We see Daleks as enemy cards and the locations Alfava Metraxis (home to the Aplans until the Weeping Angels attacked in the mid 47th century) and Pompeii in 79 AD which is just before Volcano and the year the 10th Doctor visited with Donna Noble (and which featured Karen Gillan playing a soothsayer).
