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.

About Doctor Who Time Clash
In Doctor Who Time Clash, the Doctor and the Daleks wage a desperate struggle for the fate of the universe itself!
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.
During the game’s build-up segment, each side tries to establish an advantage. When the balance tips and the endgame comes, they press for victory. Either one of the Doctor’s desperate gambits will succeed, or the Daleks’ pressing threats will crush him!
Designed by Jeff Tidball
