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.

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.

“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.

Fourth Doctor Showcase

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

 

 “You may be a doctor. But I'm THE Doctor. The definite article, you might say.”

 
When talking about classic Doctor Who, it’s hard to not talk about Tom Baker, the Fourth Doctor. From his long scarf to his ever ready bag of Jelly Babies, the Fourth Doctor is one of the most iconic Doctors of all time.

The Fourth Doctor has some amazing companions, starting off with Sarah Jane Smith, one of the most Iconic companions of all time. Sarah was fantastic, for me she will always be the companion to whom I compare other companions. Romina is another companion that I loved growing up, the fact that she was a Timelord, or should I say Timelady, was awesome, but I most like the fact that she was incredibly clever and in most cases more clever then the Doctor.

“Would you care for a Jelly Baby?” 
In the game the Fourth Doctor himself has some great dice control, being able to always re-roll any one of the coloured dice makes him flexible in any of his Adventures.  

The Fourth Doctor starts off with Sarah Jane Smith. Sarah gives you a lot of good green dice options. She also gains you an extra Timey-Wimey card at the start of each turn, though you only get to draw the card if you are with the Third or Fourth Doctors.  

One of the many Timey-Wimey cards in the game is K-9, and I have to say he is one of my favourites. As long as you have a Sonic Charge token to “power” K-9, he can add a die of any colour to your pool.  



The Eleventh Doctor Showcase

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