Each Doctor’s turn consists of four phases where you prepare, travel, adventure and then clean up. To prepare, you take two sonic charge tokens, which allow you to buy companions, play cards with a cost, buy a new companion and re-roll or change a dice result. You can then travel to a location and have an adventure on Earth or on an alien planet. You have the adventure by rolling the dice to match the symbols that you need to. Yes, in possibly the most British game mechanic of all time, you can only keep the Angels at bay with a hard stare. Brilliantly, this weakness extends to Angels looking at each other; presumably, they live their whole lives desperately avoiding each other’s gaze, like passengers on the tube. The Doctor has to use what is left of the TARDIS' telepathic circuits to break the Laws of Time and enlist the assistance of her former incarnations and numerous travelling companions.Travelling through the time vortex, the Tardis is hit by a time spiral, past technology which has been reactivated by the Daleks. The collision has scattered three key components of the Tardis throughout time and space. In Don’t Blink you need to decide which team you want to be on: the Weeping Angels (one player) or the Heroes (up to four players). The Heroes are The Doctor, Amy Pond, Rory Williams, and Clara Oswald, each with their own unique power. The game map is modular and creates a 3×3 grid with almost labyrinthian passages. Everyone chooses where they will start on the board before gameplay begins. So far, I’ve only tried Don’t Blink as a two-player game, but I can imagine that having the five players will make things interesting as you argue over tactics and the supply of Don’t Blink cards dwindles, especially since once your character is captured by the Angels, you’re out of the game.

In Doctor Who: Nemesis, you play one of the Doctor’s many adversaries seeking to twist space and time to your own ends. This is really useful, as our heroes can only move six spaces per turn, while Angel’s zip along at nine, so long as no one’s watching. Players can even drag Angels into position to stare at each other, but there’s a catch. Sometimes a statue is just a statue. Don’t Blink is for anyone wanting a new and challenging experience that feels balanced throughout. The gameplay is full of puzzles, almost minigames, on how to navigate the limitations and powers of both roles. However, if you’re not prepared to go to mental or tactical war with your friends, sadly I would not recommend this game to play, even with strangers. I don’t suspect that gameplay will become stale as player count and even difficulty modes can provide a new experience and replayability.When you move to a location and have an adventure, it feels like an episode of the show and when you get Amy and Rory matched with Matt Smith’s Doctor, there is a little thrill. It’s hard to explain, but it feels like the show and if you are a fan, you’ll love it. I even swapped the Daleks for Cybermen from the Warlord exterminate miniatures game to vary it a bit. I can see the expansions adding to the enjoyment with new companions and locations, prolonging the life of the game. Travelling through the Time Vortex, the TARDIS is hit by a Time Spiral, outlawed technology which has been reactivated by the Daleks. There’s no galaxy-spanning apocalyptic plot. The Doctor’s time-travelling police box, the Tardis, has crashed on a derelict spaceship. The crew needs to scavenge four components to get it going again and escape. Unfortunately, the ship is home to Weeping Angels – statue-like creatures that can only move when you’re not looking at them, and who can send you out of time with a single touch.

The Race to the Tardis Expanded Universe edition comes with all new Doctors counters, companion, and encounter cards to further you’re playing experience. FindThisBest (UK) aims to create a platform to help you make better shopping decisions with less time and energy. Earning our users' trust is central to what we do.In Doctor Who episode terms, if you think of Time of the Daleks as a pulls-out-all-the-stops anniversary special, then Don’t Blink is very much that midseason episode that has one good idea and runs with it, leaving a lasting impression. Doctor Who Board Games are a collection of tabletop games based on the popular British science fiction TV series. These games allow players to immerse themselves in the world of the Doctor, travelling through time and space to defeat enemies and complete missions. Each game has its own unique gameplay mechanics and objectives, but all feature beloved characters and creatures from the show. With a variety of options available, from cooperative games to competitive ones, Doctor Who Board Games offer something for everyone who enjoys strategy and adventure. That accessibility underpins the whole game. There were probably two ways this could have gone – a big, Nemesis-style starship-crawler with dozens of meticulously detailed miniatures and a choice of Tardis crews, or something altogether more affordable.
