Hi folks

So we've made it! We've finally got Doctor Who: Solitaire Story Game (Second edition) to 30 ratings so have been ranked by BGG!!

(Sounds of party poppers!!) thumbsup

Okay, we're only ranked at 8149 but we'll start small and grow!! laugh

Welcome to all new players and fans this week and (as if you don't know already) PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, rate the game for me.

So All of Time and Space started last week with 'The First Doctor expansion and we've had a record 87 downloads in a week! Fantastic! Did people like the cards that were created by Markus and Laumee to go alongside the release? We've had over 50 downloads so I guess so??

Many, many thanks for your support and I hope you enjoy playing as the 1st Doctor. Please let me know your thoughts with some feedback - and if you find any nits, let me know that too!

More work on DWSSG2e this week with..

AOTAS2: The Second Doctor - now just waiting for a cover

AOTAS3: The Third Doctor - Now all finished, and awaiting the edits from Markus and Dan...

AOTAS4: The Fourth Doctor - has now really got going with a load of design work this week with photos selected, events in place, and a few enemies designed - such as the wonderful Wirrn...

Download updates:

1. The 2e Rulebook has a total of 410 downloads - 8 downloads this week!

2. The 2e Enemy book has a total of 304 downloads - 4 downloads this week.

3. The 2e Adventure Book has a total of 315 downloads - 4 downloads this week

4. The 2e Event book has a total of 279 downloads - 4 downloads this week.

5. The 12 Doctors mini-expansion has had 185 downloads - a massive 18 downloads this week

And with the Beginner's Guide I put out a few months ago, the PDF version has proved really popular as it now has 217 downloads!

So another stable week with game growth - about 4 downloads of the main Core books. As I said above, we now have a total of 30 ratings (1 more this week) and 1 new fan (35 total). With this little nudge we now have a RATING of 8.9 which is tremendous (1e has a rating of 8.0).

6. Twitter - 130 followers now (that's 8 more this week). Please follow me and retweet the game link to here:@DWSSG01

7. No errata this week - phew!

8. Please share your adventures with us? Some session reports would really help the game get publicity. I've stuck 2e on a lot of Geeklists but if people know of any I've missed, please let me know.

I've been watching the 3rd Doctor story 'The 3 Doctors' this week and I have to admit it's not my favourite! Episodes 1 and 4 are ok but it sags dreadfully in the middle. I do like Stephen Thorne's Omega though and Pat Troughton is always good value. But it looks SO cheap!!

I've also started 'Terror of the Zygons' - boy, how good is THIS story!

For BF this week, I finished the 7th Doctor adventure from 2004 'The Harvest' which I thought was excellent and also completed the far more recent 6th Doctor adventure 'Static' which is another little gem and a creepy host story - listen with lights off!

Many thanks to everyone who is supporting and following the development of DWSSG2e - especially my team of Dan, Markus and Laumee. If anyone else would like to join us, please get in touch!

See you next week

I've been watching the DVD re-release of Shada this week and thoroughly enjoying it. the team behind it did a great job of piecing together the bits and the result is beautifully done. It's worth the price of admission for the last scene alone!

For BF this week, I listened to the evocative 'The Rocketmen' a 1st Doctor tale read by the sublime William Russell, and 'The Nightwitches', a very enjoyable 2nd Doctor adventure. I've now started the 7th Doctor adventure from 2004 'The Harvest'

Many thanks to everyone who is supporting and following the development of DWSSG2e - I wish everyone a very happy 2018.

See you next week

Twice Upon a Time

Hi folks

So what did people think of 'Twice Upon A Time'? I thought it was slight in plot but a charming and gentle coda to the Moffat/Cpaldi era with some genuinely touching moments. David Bradley and Peter Capaldi were both superb too and I did enjoy all the slightly self-indulgent reflection. Charming viewing.

I went to see 'The Last Jedi' again too and my view still stands - a great film, although it does take a while to get going and the second half is way better than the first.

Only a little bit of work on Doctor Who: Solitaire Story Game (Second edition) this week..

AOTAS1: The First Doctor is now done and dusted and is out NEXT SATURDAY - Jan 6th!

AOTAS2: The Second Doctor - now just waiting for a cover

AOTAS3: The Third Doctor - I'm now a good 60% through this - barring edits - and have completed all the lovely new events...

Download updates:

1. The 2e Rulebook has a total of 395 downloads - 10 downloads this week!

2. The 2e Enemy book has a total of 296 downloads - 10 downloads this week.

3. The 2e Adventure Book has a total of 305 downloads - 8 downloads this week

4. The 2e Event book has a total of 269 downloads - 8 downloads this week.

5. The 12 Doctors mini-expansion has had 142 downloads - 13 downloads this week

So a stable week with game growth - about 9-10 downloads of the main Core books. No new ratings this week (still 27) but 2 new fans (33 total). Please rate the game and leave a comment so we can get DWSSG2e officially 'rated' by BGG. I thought we only needed 25, but I guess we need 30??

6. Twitter - 109 followers now (that's 8 more this week). Please follow me and retweet the game link to here:@DWSSG01

7. No errata this week - phew!

8. Please share your adventures with us? I've started putting up mine on the game-page. I uploaded Adventure 9 'Cold As Ice' last week and am starting Adventure 10 today.

I finished the utterly magnificent 'Spare Parts' with the 5th Doctor and Nyssa which is totally brilliant and how the Mondasian Cybermen origins should have been done on TV and also listened to the 7th Doctor in 'Valhalla' with Michelle Gomez guesting and then 'Human Resources' - an 8th Doctor story with Lucie Miler and the Cybermen..

I hope everyone had a relaxing and happy time over Xmas with their family and loved ones and wish everyone a very happy 2018.

See you next week

Hi folks

Only a few more days until Xmas and Doc 12 regenerates into Doc 13 in 'Twice Upon A Time'. I can't wait for this one and am really in the mood - despite not being a fan of the 12th Doctor Xmas specials. I think it'll wear it's heart(s) on it's sleeve and we're in for an emotional rollercoaster. I think I'll forgive any over-sentimentality as it's both Capaldi and Moffat's last hurrah. Break out the hankies in readiness!

What did people think of 'The Last Jedi'? My view was that, despite it's flaws, it was still a fantastic film as it played on audience and fan expectation and I genuinely did not see how things would play out. I thought the reunions and cameos were touching and Mark Hamill brilliant. There has been a lot of negativity around but I thought it was fantastic!

Of course, I have been working on Doctor Who: Solitaire Story Game (Second edition) this week too...

AOTAS1: The First Doctor now has an amazing cover that I can't wait to share with you - I'll spoil it on Twitter this week! All the edits on AOTAS2: The Second Doctor have now been completed and AOTAS3: The Third Doctor has had some Event and Enemy work this week - I had a great time doing a powerful Enemy from Season 8...

Of course, it's now only 2 weeks away until you see AOTAS1 which will release on January 6th 2018!

Download updates:

1. The 2e Rulebook has a total of 385 downloads - 12 downloads this week!

2. The 2e Enemy book has a total of 286 downloads - 11 downloads this week.

3. The 2e Adventure Book has a total of 297 downloads - 9 downloads this week

4. The 2e Event book has a total of 261 downloads - 6 downloads this week.

5. The 12 Doctors mini-expansion has had 129 downloads - 17 downloads this week

So a bigger week with game growth - about 9-10 downloads of the main Core books. Added to that is 1 new rating (27 in total) but no new fans (still 31 total). Please rate the game and leave a comment so we can get DWSSG2e officially 'rated' by BGG. I thought we only needed 25, but I guess we need 30??

6. Twitter - 101 followers now (that's 7 more this week). I'm tweeting my own personal adventures on there as well as my episode watches and ratings. Please follow me and retweet the game link to here: @DWSSG01

7. No errata this week - phew!

8. Please share your adventures with us? I've started putting up mine on the game-page. I've just finished Adventure 9 'Cold As Ice' and will upload later today.

I watched the 3rd Doctor 'The Silurians' this week which was fantastic!

I finished the new BF UNIT 'Encounters' boxset and enjoyed it enormously as well as listening to the 6th Doctor adventure 'The Middle' which was good. I'm now listening to the utterly magnificent 'Spare Parts' with the 5th Doctor and Nyssa which is totally brilliant and how the Mondasian Cybermen origins should have been done on TV.

I hope everyone has a relaxing and happy time over Xmas with their family and loved ones.

Countdown to All of Time and Space (and Xmas!)

Hi folks

Only a brief update this week as we beaver away to Xmas (and of course hit the movies to see 'The Last Jedi' too) so only a moderate amount of work done on Doctor Who: Solitaire Story Game (Second edition).

AOTAS1: The First Doctor is now having a lovely cover done. The edits on AOTAS2: The Second Doctor have now been completed and AOTAS3: The Third Doctor has had some Enemy work this week - as well as potential Companion Annie Harris.

Of course, it's now only 3 weeks away until you see AOTAS1 which will release on January 6th 2018!

Download updates:

1. The 2e Rulebook has a total of 373 downloads - 6 downloads this week!

2. The 2e Enemy book has a total of 275 downloads - 5 downloads this week.

3. The 2e Adventure Book has a total of 288 downloads - 6 downloads this week

4. The 2e Event book has a total of 255 downloads - 4 downloads this week.

5. The 12 Doctors mini-expansion has had 112 downloads - 16 downloads this week

So we're still at an even keel at the moment with game growth - about 5-6 downloads of the main Core books each week. Added to that is 1 new rating (26 in total) but no new fans (still 31 total). Please rate the game and leave a comment so we can get DWSSG2e officially 'rated' by BGG. I thought we only needed 25, but I guess we need 30??

6. Twitter - 94 followers now (that's 3 more this week). I'm tweeting my own personal adventures on there as well as my DoctorWho episode watch and ratings. Please follow me and retweet the game link to here: @DWSSG01

7. No errata this week - phew!

8. Please share your adventures with us? I've started putting up mine on the game-page. I've just finished Adventure 8 'The Black Carnival' and will upload later today.

I watched the 2nd Doctor story 'The Moonbase' this week which is about as typical a Doctor Who story as can be. Very average overall but with some good bits. I've started the 3rd Doctor 'The Silurians' too - which is fantastic!

I'm almost finished the new BF UNIT 'Encounters' boxset too and have enjoyed it enormously.

Only a week or so before 'Twice Upon a Time'!!

See you next week

Hi folks

Another full week in design for Doctor Who: Solitaire Story Game (Second edition) as I've now finished (barring the all important edits) AOTAS2: The Second Doctor. I've even started looking at AOTAS3: The Third Doctor too so I'm more than ahead of schedule

Continuing the fun of introducing original characters that can become Companions using actors/actresses that could have conceivably been cast at that time I've introduced Space Corp Major Tom Draper into the mix for the Second Doctor...

So in other news:

1. The 2e Rulebook has a total of 368 downloads - 8 downloads this week!

2. The 2e Enemy book has a total of 270 downloads - 8 downloads this week.

3. The 2e Adventure Book has a total of 282 downloads - 6 downloads this week

4. The 2e Event book has a total of 251 downloads - 7 downloads this week.

So we're at a pretty even keel at the moment with game growth - about 7-8 downloads of the main Core books each week. added to that is 1 new rating (25 in total) and a new fan (31 total). Please rate the game and leave a comment so we can get DWSSG2e officially 'rated' by BGG. I thought we only needed 25, but I guess we need 30??

5. Twitter - 91 followers now (that's 6 more this week). I'm tweeting my own personal adventures on there as well as my DoctorWho episode watch and ratings. Please follow me and retweet the game link to here: @DWSSG01

6. As always, I'd love any feedback on the DWSSG2e project. I'm also always grateful for the kind supporters who are challenging me with their careful Errata and nit-picks. It's so good to get those as it shows the game has a fan-base. If you find typos, or nits, let us know!

7. The '12 Doctors' expansion that Markus put out last week has had 96 downloads - 20 more since last week. What do people think of it?

8. Please share your adventures with us? I've started putting up mine on the game-page. I've just finished and uploaded the season-changing episode Adventure 7 'Sanctuary' and have now started the next adventure where the Doctor and Alex have landed in Regency Cornwall...


I watched the 1st Doctor story 'The Keys of Marinus' this week (and SPOILER - the Voord are coming to AOTAS!). I have to say that I was unimpressed. It has imagination and ambition for 60's Who but boy does it look cheap!

I also finished the new BF 10th Doctor boxset with Rose and 'Cold Vengeance'. Terrific boxset which I heartily recommend. I also started the new UNIT 'Encounters' boxset too and have listened to the first 2 discs which are both tremendous adventures.

Only 2 weeks or so before 12 leaves and we get 13!!

See you next week

Legacy of a Time Lord

Hi folks

Interesting week in design for Doctor Who: Solitaire Story Game (Second edition) as not only have I finished AOTAS1: The First Doctor, but I'm also close to the finishing post on AOTAS2: The Second Doctor too - barring edits of course1

I've managed to get a heck of a lot into the new expansions with a smaller typeface and increased page count - the 1e versions were only 10 pages long. The 2e versions are 17 pages - so you're getting about double the content!

One of the most fun things in design of the expansions is 'updating' them in several respects - all colour images for a start, different aspect ratio for the adventures etc. But also I'm having fun introducing original characters that can become Companions using actors/actresses that could have conceivably been cast at that time. AOTAS1 has swinging sixties dollybird Andrea Miller played by....well... wait and see...

The other interesting thing this week is my investigations into the new FFGames Legacy of Dragonholt. All I've read about this new entry reminds me of a CYOA with bells on. It looks interesting, and has a strong storytelling element which I'm always keen to play, but with the lack of any kind of randomness from a dice roll at all, the replayability comes into question. I pride myself on getting a good balance between narrative and replayability with DWSSG. Anyone played it? I'd be interested to hear your opinions and how it compares on a storytelling level to DWSSG2e?

So in other news:

1. The 2e Rulebook now has a total of 360 downloads - 9 downloads this week!

2. The Enemy book has had a total of 261 downloads - again another 8 downloads since last week.

3. The 2e Adventure Book has now had 276 downloads - 6 downloads since last week

4. The 2e Event book has now had 244 downloads - 7 since last week.

So another 7 or so new players since last week! I hope everyone enjoys their time adventuring in the TARDIS! Please share your adventures with us? I've started putting up mine on the game-page. I've just finished and uploaded Adventure 6 'Knights of Nottingham' and have now started the next adventure where we've landed on Sanctuary...

5. Twitter - 85 followers now (that's 7 more this week). I'm tweeting my own personal adventures on there as well as my DoctorWho episode watch and ratings. Please follow me and retweet the game link to here: @DWSSG01

6. As always, I'd love any feedback on the DWSSG2e project. We've got 24 ratings so far for 2e and 30 fans. Please rate the game and leave a comment so we can get DWSSG2e officially 'rated' by BGG. I think we only need 25?

7. The Beginners Guide I put out now has 138 downloads so far so surely some can leave a rating??

8. The '12 Doctors' expansion that Markus put out last week has had 76 downloads. what do people think of it?

I'm always grateful for the kind supporters who are challenging me with their careful Errata and nit-picks. It's so good to get those as it shows the game has a fan-base. If you find typos, or nits, let us know!

I watched the 12th Doctor story 'World Enough & Time and The Doctor Falls' this week. I have to say that I was a bit unimpressed. Some great acting and good bits don't make up for a plot that has no internal logic at all and things happen just because they need to happen. and the ending when the space-puddle arrives...

I've also started the new BF 10th Doctor boxset with Rose. 'Infamy of the Zaross' and 'Sword of the Chevalier' are both terrific fun.

See you next week

Hi folks

54 years ago! That's a heck of a legacy for a TV programme - but that's what we have with Doctor Who! No other TV programme can compare and as a cultural icon, it's hard to beat!

To celebrate the anniversary, we have 2 new releases for Doctor Who: Solitaire Story Game (Second edition)this week:

The first is Markus' '12 Doctors' expansion which is now up and contains all the stats for all 12 Doctors in different formats.

Second is 'All Of Time And Space' - my DWSSG2e project for 2018 and which I'm very excited about. I've written all about it in the Forum and more information over the next few weeks, but I've already finished AOTAS1: The First Doctor. There's so much more in it than the original 1e version so prepare to encounter the Voord...

I'm still grateful for the kind supporters who are challenging me with their careful Errata and nit-picks. It's so good to get those as it shows the game has a fan-base. If you find typos, or nits, let us know!

So in other news:

1. The 2e Rulebook now has a total of 351 downloads - that's another 8 downloads this week!

2. The Enemy book has had a total of 253 downloads - again another 8 downloads since last week.

3. The 2e Adventure Book has now had 270 downloads - 10 downloads since last week

4. The 2e Event book has now had 237 downloads - 9 since last week.

So another 10 or so new players since last week! I hope everyone enjoys their time adventuring in the TARDIS! Please share your adventures with us? I've started putting up mine on the game-page. I've just finished and uploaded Adventure 5 'The Karzak Gambit' and have now landed in Sherwood Forest...

5. Twitter - 78 followers now (that's 3 more this week). I'm tweeting my own personal adventures on there too. Please follow me and retweet the game link to here: @DWSSG01

6. As always, I'd love any feedback on the DWSSG2e project. We've got 23 ratings so far for 2e and 30 fans. Please rate the game and leave a comment so we can get DWSSG2e officially 'rated' by BGG. I think we only need 30? The Beginners Guide I put out now has 135 downloads so far so surely some can leave a rating??

I finished off the 5h Doctor story 'Snakedance'. Some impressive acting from a first rate cast and I really enjoyed it - even though it's a bit studio bound.

I also finished BF's 'The Behemoth' featuring the 6h Doctor which was a pure 18th century historical and,although small scale, very listenable.

See you next week

The Nits of Blood

Hi folks

Lots of work done for Doctor Who: Solitaire Story Game (Second edition) this week - you'll have to wait another 2 weeks to find out exactly what, but AOTAS is just around the corner...

I'm grateful for the kind supporters who are challenging me with their careful Errata and nit-picks. It's so good to get those as it shows the game has a fan-base. Dan and Markus are both brilliant proof-readers but the odd one does slip through. With over 150 pages of text in the 4 Core books its inevitable I guess. As always, I'm happy to help out with any rules questions and if you find typos, or nits, let us know!

The Beginners Guide I put out last week has proved really popular with folks and has had 132 downloads so far (that's 46 since last weekend) so I'm really pleased with the suggestions people gave me. Traffic seems to be increasing for 2nd edition too as we're now on 15 Geeklists too.

Next week on Nov 25th, Markus will be releasing the first mini-expansion for DWSSG2e with 'The Twelve Doctors'!

So in other news:

1. The 2e Rulebook now has a total of 343 downloads in total on the 2e page - that's another 14 downloads this week!

2. The Enemy book has had a total of 245 downloads on the 2e page - again another 13 downloads since last week.

3. The 2e Adventure Book has now had 260 downloads - 10 downloads since last week

4. The 2e Event book has now had 228 downloads - 13 since last week.

So another 13 or so new players since last week! I hope everyone enjoys their time adventuring in the TARDIS! Please share your adventures with us? I've started putting up mine on the game-page. I've just finished Adventure 4 'Death Under the Nile' so will update later

5. Twitter - 75 followers now (that's 6 more this week). I'm tweeting my own personal adventures on there too. Please follow me and retweet the game link to here: @DWSSG01

6. As always, I'd love any feedback on the DWSSG2e project. We've got 22 ratings so far for 2e and 29 fans. Please rate the game and leave a comment so we can get DWSSG2e officially 'rated' by BGG. I think we only need 30?

I finished off the wonderful 4th Doctor story 'The Stones of Blood' which is entertaining fun and have now started the 5th Doctor 'Snakedance'. Some impressive acting from a first rate cast and I am really enjoying it so far.

I also finished BF's 'The Time War' Vol 1 featuring the 8th Doctor. What a brilliant box set! I can't recommend this one enough.

And what did people think of the clip of 'Twice Upon A Time' from 'Children in Need' last night?

See you next week - and enjoy 2e!

Hi folks

Back in work this week so have had a little less time, but still beavering away when I can for DWSSG 2e.

Last week I posted on trying to get more traffic and publicity for the game and had some very helpful replies. It always amazes me on how supportive everyone is on these forums - so many thanks.

As a result, I've added DWSSG2e to 12 new Geeklists and also republished the Beginner's Guide to DWSSG that was originally published by Brendan Newall. After getting in contact with him, he graciously allowed me to update his document and add a section on 'what has changed for 2e players' which I thought a lot of people would be interested in. The result was uploaded on Tuesday and has since has 86 downloads!!

As I said last week, I also have BIG plans for next year with Project AOTAS for 2e. This is something like I've never attempted before and will be a treat for DWSSG fans. I'm keeping details under wraps for the next 2-3 weeks and then will have an announcement at the end of November I'm hoping everyone will like.

Before that however, 2 weeks today on Nov 25th, we'll have the first mini-expansion for DWSSG2e with 'The Twelve Doctors'!

So in other news:

1. The 2e Rulebook now has a total of 329 downloads in total on the 2e page - that's another 22 downloads this week!

2. The Enemy book has had a total of 232 downloads on the 2e page - again another 21 downloads since last week.

3. The 2e Adventure Book has now had 250 downloads - again 21 downloads since last week

4. The 2e Event book has now had 215 downloads - 22 since last week.

So that's 21 new players since last week hopefully! I hope everyone enjoys their time adventuring in the TARDIS! Please share your adventures with us?

As always, I'm happy to help out with any rules questions and if you find typos, or nits, let us know!

5. Twitter - 69 followers now (that's 9 more this week). I'm tweeting my own personal adventures on there too. My Doctor has met new Companions Alex and Eva and has already faced off against the Sycorax on the Moon, the Meddling Monk at a Victorian Xmas and this week defeated the Winago on the Ood Sphere - close call that one - I thought I was going tolose Eva! Please follow me and retweet the game link to here: @DWSSG01


6. As always, I'd love any feedback on the DWSSG2e project. We've got 20 ratings so far for 2e and 28 fans.

Please rate the game and leave a comment so we can get DWSSG2e officially 'rated' by BGG. I think we only need 30?

I finished off the wonderful and nostalgic 'The Curse of Peladon' which is a particularly loved story foe me as it was my second Target book back in 1975!! I'm also half way through the 4th Doctor story 'The Stones of Blood' which is equally as entertaining and I just love Prof. Rumford. Mary Tamm looks gorgeous too!

I also listened to BF's 'The Silurian Candidate' for the 7th Doctor which is ok but not great and have just listened to the first 8th Doctor 'Time War' story - absolutely terrific and I can't wait to see where the box set goes.

And what do people make of the 13th Doctor's new costume? Looks good to me!

See you next week - and enjoy 2e!
