It’s been a busy old couple of months here at Cubicle 7, what with our latest Kickstarter wrapping up and a whole bevy of new releases, so we thought it a good point to take a look back at some of our recent products up for pre-order now.

You can find all of our pre-orders over at our webstore – don’t forget that each pre-order comes with a complementary PDF too.  We're a proud supporter of Bits & Mortar so you can also pre-order at your local games store and get the complementary PDF there too. Read more.

To start the week off, we’ve got an introductory adventure for Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space for you to download for free: Arrowdown.

In Arrowdown, what starts out as a day trip to the seaside for the Doctor and his companions takes a turn for the sinister when they discover an unexploded bomb, a rift in time and space and evidence of Torchwood involvement. Can the players work out what’s going on and save the town? Read more.

The Sixth Doctor Sourcebook

We've had multiple reports of The Sixth Doctor Sourcebook arriving with both subscribers and pre-order customers today, so thought we'd take another look at the book ahead of its general release in a few weeks' time. You can, of course, still order the book on our webstore and in PDF from RPGNow.

When designing the second edition of Doctor Who: The Card Game, one of the things we knew we wanted to include was a variant for playing the game with two players. While it’s great to be able to play a game with three or four of your mates, there are times when there’s just the two of you.

Fortunately, we didn’t have to make many adjustments to make the game play seamlessly with just two players. First up, you remove a handful of cards that require a third player (Davros, the Chameleon Arch, that sort of thing), then you start playing exactly as you normally would.

Secondly, at the end of your go, you have to hand 2 cards to your opponent (instead of 3), and then draw back up to 5 as normal. This has the effect of increasing the flow of cards, and keeping the cards you hand your opponent a little unpredictable.

If anything, the two-player variant is a much faster, frenetic affair. If you’ve already got a copy of the first edition, why not download the new rulebook and have a go with the two-player variant yourselves. And if you’ve pre-ordered the second edition, hopefully you won’t have long to wait now – we’re expecting it to be with you in November.

About The Fifth Doctor Sourcebook

This Sourcebook explores the Fifth Doctor’s adventures on Earth and beyond. With detailed information on all the allies, enemies, aliens and gadgets that he encounters, as well as examining each of his adventures, the book contains a wealth of material for the Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space RPG, and is also a fact-packed resource for fans of the show!

Betrayed by the Master and left to die, the Doctor faced his most difficult regeneration yet – but it’d be nothing compared to the heartbreak, betrayal and loss that was to come. Fly Concorde through time, re-enact the English civil war, play in a ripping game of cricket and race yachts around the Solar System for the greatest prize of all. Witness the return of some of the universe’s greatest foes, restored and deadlier than ever, and thwart their machinations once more … but at a cost.

Brave heart, my friends…

This 160-page book contains:

  • Character sheets for the Fifth Doctor and his companions, including Tegan, Nyssa and Vislor Turlough.

05 Doctor Who Card Game Spread

We launched the pre-order for the new edition of Doctor Who: The Card Game yesterday - you can find out more about that here. We've had lots of people asking us about the game, so today we thought we'd answer some of the most frequently asked questions about it!

Frequently Asked Questions

What sort of game is Doctor Who: The Card Game?

Doctor Who: The Card Game is a fast, fun card game about saving the universe from the Doctor’s enemies. You can read a more thorough description of how the game works here.

Who can I play?

Everyone plays as the Doctor and his companions, defending time and space from the incursions of the Doctor’s enemies. At the same time, you are sending incursions of enemies to attack the other players!

Can I play with 2 players?

Yes, we’ve added a variant set of rules so you can play with just 2 players! Or use the regular rules and play with 3 or 4.

What’s different about the second edition?

Doctor Who: The Card Game second edition features the same great game as the first edition. We’ve tidied up some of the rules text and put in some more examples. There are rules for playing with 2 players, too.

More importantly, we’ve added in loads of new cards, from the Ninth and Tenth Doctors to Rose and Martha, Clockwork Robots to Ironsides and a whole bunch of new locations, like Royal Hope Hospital (now on the surface of the Moon).

You can download the new rulebook here and see just a few of the new cards here.

I already own the first edition – do I need to buy the second edition?

Of course not! Your game will still be just as much fun as it always has been. If you want to carry on playing you can do just that – in fact, you can download the new rulebook here, if you like.

If you want a host of new cards, including new Doctors, companions, locations and enemies, then it’s well worth picking up the second edition too.

Can I combine both editions?

Yes, you can just shuffle both decks together into one super deck (for an extra long game), or pick and choose your favourite enemies, locations and characters from both. The two editions have different card backs, so you can easily sort them out again when you’re done, but this won’t stop you combining them. You can read more about doing this here.

Is my favourite Doctor in the new edition?

If your favourite Doctor is the Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh or even Twelfth, then the answer is yes!

Can I still blow up the Dalek Flagship with a Jammy Dodger?

But of course! It’s our favourite trick. You can also turn the tide of battle with an Ironside or escape in the Valiant when the going gets tough, and many more new tricks besides!

I’m new to all this but I love Doctor Who. Will I still enjoy this game?

Yes! Doctor Who: The Card Game is designed to be accessible by anyone ages 13 to 1300, whether they’ve played a card game or not.

I’ve not watched much Doctor Who. Will I still enjoy this game?

It’s still a fun, tactical card game, regardless of whether you’re an avid fan of the show or not. Of course, you’ll get more out of it if you have watched the show, but you don’t need to be an expert to play (and win!) – maybe you’ll enjoy it so much you’ll go and watch some more episodes?
