All the Doctor Who games we can find, with the best quotes we can find for them.


Geekmail me if you see a new Doctor Who or Doctor Who related game in the database. Also geekmail me if you see a file or thread about a Doctor Who variant to an existing game.

Right now the game features:

14 playable Companions (Amy, Clara, Danny, Donna, Jack, Jackie, Jenny, Martha, Mickey, River, Rory, Rose, Strax, Vastra)

9 Enemy races: Autons, Cybermen, Daleks, Weeping Angels, The Silence, Oods, Krillitanes, Judoons, Slitheens

I'm trying to gather all the significant items and characters throughout the show (since 2003) to add to the gameplay

Excellent ruleset for playing Doctor Who sessions. Very professional looking, includes scenarios and stat cards for most good/bad guys from the first Doctor through the tenth.
Most scenarios are intended for 2 players, but some are suitable for solitaire play and others suggest 3 independent players (the "5 Doctors" scenario supports up to 9 players).
I can't believe this is a free product as it is SO much better done than all the Doctor Who dreck I've bought over the years.

This is a real gem of an adventure game which combines the fun of a choose your own adventure book with enough depth and gameplay to make a player feel like they are able to make meaningful choices to impact whether the Doctor succeeds or fails on his journey. The designer is also very responsive to fan feedback, and has made many new updates and add-ons to help players keep track of information and enjoy a wide range of new adventures from the history of the show.

Despite this being a fan-made product, I'd say it's much better than many offical games out there. The rules are fairly easy, but the game is quite deep and very immersive. Especially if for a Doctor Who fan. You won't regret it!

Plus it plays well on its own even without knowing any of the characters. Who would've thought?

Wonderful plastic minis, great game which has plenty of expansion-potential (the core game comes with rules/cards for several other monsters (e.g. Zygons) and Doctors (10th & 12th), as well as numerous 'Nu Who' companions. It really captures the feel of Dalek power, Cyber-ingenuity and the TV show with all its adventure cards being named after famous devices and TV moments. Also has a cracking Facebook Page too, which is incredibly supportive Ref rule questions, modelling and painting tips, and future release teases. if you like Sci-Fi games (regardless of whether you're not familiar with the TV), then this boxed set is for you.

As a Doctor Who fan, I like this, but as a gamer, I think the system is a little too repetitive and long to be really good.

What would probably have been of more interest is dilemmas that affect the dice you have rolled - forcing re-rolls or something as well as non-alien events peculiar to Earth (like the pure historical). Also mechanics that prevented the non-canonical team-ups of companions with Doctors before they actually met him/her.

This is a fun 3D print project, but not a super interesting game. Hard to get the tablets to roll right, and the whole game is basically about getting the right roll (black tablet). The race aspect is not a binding constraint. Great theme and components if you have the printer.

Dalek domination is the impossible goal of this adaptation of Risk into Doctor Who. (1) Every turn involves the flip over a territory card to land the T.A.R.D.I.S. and prevent combat there... but if Clara Oswald shows up, you move the tracker closer to game end. (2) There's a maximum of 3 Daleks invading a territory and only 1 reinforcement move. As compensation, you get mission cards (which give bonuses if you have a territory at the beginning), power cards (that add abilities) and a set way of getting reinforcements that differs from the main game. It's still Risk -- but the changes make it more balanced and more challenging.

MEGA PLUS: theme
PLUS: changes to the main game to make it balanced
MINUS: limits on the combat mean you can't sweep in and shift the balance too much

If you could touch the alien sand and hear the cries of strange birds and watch them wheel in another sky, would that satisfy you?

Re-skin of the Doctor Who Card Game designed by Martin Wallace.

Yuck. Martin Wallace is a powerhouse among game designers. I'm not as big a fan of his most popular designs which are usually in the vein of dry economic engine builders like Steam and Brass. But I do still like a few of his games very much, my favorite off the top of my head is Discworld: Ankh Morpork.

However, it seems when it comes to small cash in card games Wallace tends to crap the bed. The last game from him like this I played was the Hobbit card game and it was abyssmal. This particular copy I got as a free gift but it is even the "classic doctors edition" and I only started watching the show with the 9th doctor so I can't even enjoy the references and art as much as long time fans would (and I don't know any of those either to dump this off on them).

Anyway, a quick rundown. The game is centered on a pass-three drafting mechanic where you play all but 3 cards on your turn putting down locations, attack, or defense cards in an attempt to capture the most locations by the end of the game. I can imagine the pass-three mechanic being useful, but in a much better game.

This one was just uninteresting and lucky in a completely predictable way. The same 3 least useful cards just get passed around all game. Hard pass.

A fan made co-op game. The rules a little all over the place which can make it difficult to play, but people have have had fun playing it, so that saves it a little bit.

I loved this game as a kid and I hope the rework I put into it reflects that.
Sorry if you were one of the people in the 70's who opened your box of 48 weetabix to find a small boy had pilfered the cards in Leos.
