Just before we left for Spiel, Essen, we received a very exciting parcel - the prototype of the Doctor Who: The Card Game Classic Doctors Edition.
Doctor Who: The Card Game Classic Doctors Edition is a complete, standalone game with all new card art, materialising soon on Planet Earth in a silver-foil-stamped box.
The very first thing we did after driving to Germany, unloading the van and setting up the stall was to open the prototype and have a game!
The game saw Macra in Perivale, Daleks on the Moon and the Rani teaming up with the Cybermen to threaten Nerva Beacon. And while it might all seem like smiles in the photos above, Jon would like it be recorded for posterity that he very much won...
