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 ...

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. 
 
Doctor Who Time of the Daleks
 
 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.



Not Just Time Lords. We're the Same Time Lord

This week we look at how Doctors can help each other during an Adventure, and how Regeneration works in the game.

The Eleventh Doctor Showcase

This week we are taking a closer look at the Eleventh Doctor.

 

“The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. Hey, the good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don’t always spoil the good things and make them unimportant.”

 
The Eleventh Doctor may not be the only Doctor to wear a bow tie, but he is definitely the Doctor that made it iconic. Of course, there is more to this Time Lord than a cracking bow tie. His great quotes and amazing episodes prove from day one that the Eleventh Doctor is indeed a madman in a box.    
 
 Eleventh Doctor's Model
Doctor Who Time of the Daleks
 
The Eleventh Doctor has had some amazing companions during his regeneration: Amy Pond, the girl who waited; Rory Williams, the boy who waited even longer; River Song, his killer or his wife; and Clara Oswald, the impossible girl.
 
 Eleventh Doctor's TARDIS Console
Doctor Who Time of the Daleks
 
"The universe is big, it’s vast and complicated, and ridiculous. And sometimes, very rarely, impossible things just happen and we call them miracles. And that’s the theory. Nine hundred years, never seen one yet, but this would do me."

The Eleventh Doctor starts the game with Amy Pond. Because Amy is linked to Rory, he can easily join the Eleventh Doctor's TARDIS. The Eleventh Doctor, Amy and Rory create a dynamic team that can automatically get some tough symbols. Between them they get plenty of Blue and Green dice. They don’t have much access to Red dice, though, so grabbing a red-focused companion like River Song or the Brigadier would be very useful.  
 
Like all of the Doctors, the Eleventh Doctor has a powerful unique ability. His makes equipment cards cheaper to play. This comes in very handy in the first part of the game when the Doctors are trying to gather the resources they need to complete adventures and stop the Daleks.



The Fifth Doctor Showcase

This week game designer Andrew Haught talks to us about the Fifth Doctor and how he works in the game. We also take a closer look at the Fifth Doctor's Model.

The Tenth Doctor Showcase

This week we are taking a closer look at the Tenth Doctor.
Doctor Who Time of the Daleks
 

“Whatever you've got planned, forget it! I'm the Doctor. I'm 904 years old. I'm from the planet Gallifrey in the constellation of Kasterborous. I'm the Oncoming Storm, the Bringer of Darkness, and you... are basically just a rabbit, aren't you? Ok, carry on... just a... general... warning...”

One of my favorite moments with the Tenth Doctor was from the “Children in Need” special where he teamed up with the Fifth Doctor, bringing the new into the old in a way as a fan, I always wanted but never thought they would do.  

The Tenth Doctor, Rose, Mickey, Martha, Donna, Mott, and Captain Jack, these names bring back great memories. Even his monsters were iconic, from Weeping Angels, Clockwork Robots, to the return of Sontarans, the Tenth Doctor had it all.

Doctor Who Time of the Daleks
 
 "There is an old earth saying Captain, filled with power and wisdom, and consolation to the soul in times of need… ALLON-Y!”

In the game the Tenth Doctor gains three Sonic Charge tokens instead of two at the start of each turn. He also has a more flexible added color die allowing him to either add a single red or green die. 

I know the question on your mind, “Why is the Tenth Doctor not linked to Rose?” 
It is simple, because Rose has to be linked to… (Spoilers!)   

 
 Tenth Doctor's TARDIS Console
Doctor Who Time of the Daleks
 
Martha ended up being a good match for the Tenth Doctor, giving him some real focus with the blue story dice. Not only does Martha give the Doctor access to up to three blue dice but she gives him some good re-roll opportunities.
