5.0 out of 5 stars The TARDIS, The Doctor, River Song, Amy, Rory Fight Every Enemy - In Cards! 12 Dec. 2012
By Lorenzo M. in the Hollywood CA Area - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Colorful and full of a simulated adventure, Doctor Who - The Card Game, released by TreeFrog Games and Cubicle 7, is an original design by U.K. game designer Martin Wallace who has been designing games since 2001. Here is a card game that uses cards, Dalek tokens and TARDIS tokens to defend or attack your lands for ownership.

The colorful cards each have very a specific meaning and purpose. The defenders who are The Doctor, Amy, Rory, River Song and even Captain Jack fight for keeping land that you lay down as your property. What land? Imagine every place the Doctor has visited since his run as the 9th through the 11th Doctor (Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, Matt Smith). Lake Silencio, Sardick Town, Silurian City, Bowie Base One, Roman Britain, Luna University and Zarathustra are some of the locations to name a few.

Now the Enemies include the Daleks, Nestine Consciousness, Cybermen, Weeping Angels, Sycorax, Sontarans, The Silence, Davros, the Minotaur, the Beast, Gangers, The Master, Prisoner Zero, the Slitheen and more who all try to take your lands. Oh and watch out for the Dreamlord! He's really dangerous!

Now add the element of support cards to help you fight, defend and in some cases give you special powers and abilities. They are labeled the TARDIS, Sonic Screwdriver, Fish Fingers and Custard and yes they do help immensely!

Cards are dealt out. Then you figure out your lands. Then you place your defenders or attackers and the battle begins. The game is played in turns and what is unique is that you play your hand but you always must have three cards to pass to your player on your right. (Counter-clockwise) The turn continues going to the next person on your left. (Clockwise) In other words you are doing things in two directions. Sounds strange, but it makes for great stagey in playing.

Once you achieved a land, you then place your colors TARDIS token on it. If you are attacking or taking over someone else's land that is not yours, you place your colors Dalek token on it. When the first player gets five TARDIS's or five DALEK's out on table in their color, the game is over and everything stops. However, your lands are worth victory points. Some are low and some are high. The victor is the one with highs points from the lands they have acquired.

It can be vicious and turn on a dime. You could have four lands in one turn and zero the next. It changes with the player and the cards. It's extremely fun and you find yourself acting out scenes from the various enemies and locations you see in your hand. (If you are familiar with Who, of course.)

Its fun for the whole family and you can sit and relax and bring on your `game face' when you are to defend the universe using the Doctor and his companions for help. But beware, enemies abound and trouble is always both in front of you and behind you! Look for it on Amazon.

OVERALL RANKING: 8 (Out of 10)

GAME CONSRUCTION/DESIGN: 9 (Excellent quality and detail with sturdy cards.)
TYPE: 100% Competitive
PLAYERS: 3 - 4
TIME: 60 minutes. (Much more fun with 4 people than 3!)
AGE: 13+ (I've played with a wide range of ages.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for gamers 5 Jun. 2013
By Mallory Krohn - Published on Amazon.com

This game is very fun once learned, but may be too difficult for casual gamers. There are many rules and procedures that need to be followed in order to be successful and this is definitely not a game that can be played without reading the rulebook first at least once. That being said, this is a very fun and competitive game and I highly recommend it for moderate or experienced gamers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dr. Who card game 13 Nov. 2013
By R. Hyde - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Bought this for my son's birthday. I was hesitant at first, the price seemed high to me. When I saw,however that the game was based around the Matt Smith, Amy, and Rory period, I knew I had to get it for him as these are my son's favorite characters on the show. The game itself is very well made-extremely durable. Game play seems complicated at first, but if you just dive right in and start playing, it rather sorts itself out as you go. There are many different strategic possibilities, which I feel always makes the game play 'new'. The kids love playing, it has become their new after school go to thing, as opposed to the t.v. which pleases me. I would definitely recommend this game, not only for the Doctor Who fan, but for anyone looking for a strategic challenge.
