Gale Force Nine revises Doctor Who: Time of the Daleks

As demand for GF9’s Doctor Who: Time of the Daleks has grown so too has the feedback from our partners and buyers around the world. Based on this feedback we have chosen to update our initial offer and present the game in a four-player version instead of the previously announced version. The four-player version will include the First, Fourth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Doctors. It is the same game as before but players will begin their adventures with four Doctor’s to play as before adding more with game expansions. The other two Doctor’s from the six-player version, both the Fifth and Tenth Doctors, will now come in their own expansion to give you 5 and 6 players options shortly behind the release of the game. Our expansion plan beyond this has not changed and we will be bringing all of the other Doctors to the table as well as some Companions and specials in the second half of the year ...

Wibbly-Wobbly, Timey-Wimey

People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey... stuff. 

This week we get a sneak peek at some more Timey-Wiemy cards.

This week we take a closer look at Timey-Wimey Cards.

 

“People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey... stuff.”

 
In Doctor Who Time of the Daleks there are three types of Timey-Wimey cards:

Equipment: These are installed (played) on your TARDIS Console during your Prepare step. Once installed they can be used when indicated by their timing, and stay in play until they are Discarded.

Events: These are played, their effects resolved, then immediately discarded.

Transfer: These are played, their effects resolved, then the card is given to another player. The receiving player adds the card to their hand and can later use it and pass it on again.

Dalek Showcase

This week we are taking a closer look at the Daleks.

 

“I have waited a long time for this. Once the Doctor is exterminated, I shall build a new race of Daleks. They will be even more deadly and I, Davros, shall be their leader! This time we shall triumph. My Daleks shall once more become the supreme beings!”

 
In Doctor Who: Time of the Daleks, Davros has infiltrated the Matrix on Gallifrey, mapping out the Doctor’s timeline and devising the best way to wipe him from history.
 
Dalek Markers 

Dalek markers are placed on a Location if a Doctor fails a challenge and making it harder to complete the challenge in future.

 Davros Marker

The Davros marker is the sixth Dalek marker. Place him last to remind players that all the Dalek markers are in play.
 
 Doctor Who Time of the Daleks
 
 
Exterminate Dice

After discarding down to eight dice, The Doctor must Exterminate (discard) a further die for each Dalek marker at the Doctor’s current Location (regardless of which Time Zone the Dalek marker is in).
As an exception to this, if The Doctor is on Earth, only Daleks in the same Time Zone as The Doctor Exterminate dice from his Dice Pool.
 
Doctor Who Time of the Daleks
 
“They cannot escape! Our time machine will soon follow them! They will be exterminated! Exterminated! Exterminated!” 
 
The Sixth Dalek Marker

The sixth and final Dalek marker is Davros, the creator of the Daleks. Once he has been placed, the Time of the Daleks is at hand.
If you are ever required to place a seventh Dalek marker for any reason, the Time of the Daleks has arrived. The Daleks conquer the universe and the game ends immediately.

All Praise Davros, Creator of the Daleks

Exterminate! They muttered about their sacred hatred, the On-Coming Storm. Their Creator has as plan… A plan to erase the Doctor from Web of Time itself. That's right this week we are talking Daleks.
