Today marks the 53rd Anniversary of the first episode of Doctor Who being broadcast. And today Doctor Who Time Clash Starter Set hits US store shelves! (The UK and European release isn't far behind!)
Doctor Who Time Clash is an asymmetric card game, designed by superstar games designer, Jeff Tidball.
It's fast, fun and has huge re-playability thanks to its modular game arcs.
Players take the side of either the Doctor or the Daleks, and each has a different way to win - the Doctor is trying to build positive points and stack the cards in a way that will favour his final cunning gambit. The Daleks are simply trying to build crushing amounts of negative points.
At the heart of Time Clash are 3 arcs, representing a Companion, a Time and an Enemy. The starter set comes with 9 of these arcs, which you can mix and match in different combinations to create different and exciting rules variations.
Adding a strategic element is the location of the Doctor - either side can move his TARDIS between the 3 arcs, activating different powers that change the rules in crucial ways.
Next year we're following up the release of Doctor Who Time Clash Starter Set with Against the Cybermen and Against the Master, featuring the 11th and 10th Doctors, each offering unique game play expansions. You'll be able to combine the card decks and arcs from each set to offer a vast range of different game options.
If you'd like to learn how to play, grab the rulebook PDF for free here.
Doctor Who Time Clash Starter Set retails $29.99 or £23.99.If you don't have a local games store you can order it at our web store here: http://shop.cubicle7store.com/Doctor-Who-Time-Clash-Starter-Set
Doctor Who Time Clash Starter Set hits US stores this week! (With UK and European release date hot in its heels!)
The starter set features the Twelfth Doctor and the Daleks.
You’ll play cards representing plans, threats, tech, and quips to stacks that represent the time of the struggle, the Doctor’s companion, and the enemy’s influence. The two sides also compete to control the Doctor’s location, which activates or deactivates crucial powers.
Designed by Jeff Tidball, Doctor Who Time Clash is fast and fun, and with 9 game arcs included in the starter set offers huge replay value.
Plus in 2017 we'll be bringing you the Eleventh Doctor against the Cybermen, and the Tenth Doctor against The Master!
The Doctor card decks, Enemy card decks, and game arcs are all interchangeable!
