Last week we announced the Classic Doctors Edition of Doctor Who: The Card Game, jam packed full of Classic-era artwork. In today’s blog we show off a few of the cards, as well as ask you which Doctor and companion you want us to show next!
Originally the Classic Doctors Edition began as an expansion for Doctor Who: The Card Game, but it quickly became apparent as we started picking our favourite episodes, enemies and companions that there was too much great material to squeeze in. So instead we decided to release it as a standalone card game, packed full of Classic-era Who goodness.
We showed these cards off yesterday on our Facebook page – everyone's favourite Classic-era Doctor, the Fourth Doctor, as well as one of two versions of Romana included in the game, and one of many marks of Cybermen included.
But now we’re left with something of a dilemma – who to show off next? Everyone's got their favourite Doctor and companion, after all, and here in the Cubicle 7 bunker we just can’t decide!
So head on over to Twitter, G+ or Facebook and leave a comment as to which Doctor and companion you’d like to see next – and why! We’ll unveil the Doctor and companion with the most votes later in the week!
Kicking things off, here are Andrew and Jon’s favourite Doctors and companions:
Andrew: “Everyone has their Doctor, the one who was on TV when they were growing up, the one they always look back with a certain misty-eyed fondness for, and mine was the Eighth Doctor. As for my favourite companion, well it has to be Sarah Jane, doesn’t it? Feisty and strong-willed enough to be the Doctor’s equal – and the only Classic companion to return to the modern incarnation of the show!”
Jon: “There's actually a correct answer to this question and it's the Fourth Doctor. Favourite companion is a bit tougher. I'm going to cheat a little bit and say Peri, because her card, painted by Scott Purdy is one of my favourites in the new Classic Doctors set.
Is this the same game/set of rules as Doctor Who: The Card Game 1st and 2nd Editions?
Yes, the rules of the game are the same as Doctor Who: The Card Game 2nd Edition, including the 2-player variant. The card art is entirely new, however.
How many cards are in the set?
There 132 cards in the set, all of them with new artwork.
Can I shuffle this and the other games together?
Yes, or you could mix and match cards from between the different editions too. The card backs are subtly different, but this won't affect the game itself.
When is it coming out?
The Classic Doctors Edition will be available to pre-order soon, and will be in stores Winter 2015.
I want to make sure you send me a copy as soon as possible. Can I pre-order?
Yes of course! You'll be able to pre-order the game from our webstore soon, as well as in all good games shops.

A little while back we showed off the cover to the new edition of the Doctor Who Roleplaying Game, featuring the Twelfth Doctor and his adventures for the first time. Much like the Doctor himself, the Doctor Who Roleplaying Game has had a few different faces in its time. However, just like the Doctor, beneath the covers is the same game we’ve always known and loved.
In today’s blog, let’s take a look at them all!
We had a busy week on the blog last week, not only asking “what do you do?” in World War Cthulhu: Cold War and taking a look at how the new setting relates to World War Cthulhu: The Darkest Hour, but also releasing Keltia in stores and the latest supplement for Yggdrasill, Uppsala, for pre-order.
This week is even more action packed, as we’ve got a new PDF supplement for The Laundry RPG coming out as well as unveiling the cover for the next supplement for Kuro. We’ll also be continuing our delve into the background for World War Cthulhu: Cold War and taking a look at the other supplements we've got planned for it.
But that’s all for later in the week – what’s going on today?
Voting for the 2015 ENnies closes tomorrow, Tuesday 14th July. Cubicle 7 are nominated for four products, as well as fan-favourite publisher, and we’d really appreciate your vote! We’re up for Best Family Game (for Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space Limited Edition), Best RPG-related Product (for Doctor Who: The Card Game 2nd Edition), Best Supplement (for The Fourth Doctor Sourcebook) and Best Free Product (for Arrowdown, for the Doctor Who RPG).
If you’ve not voted for us yet – you’ve still got time to do so here!
The latest Bundle of Holding is the Fantasy Frontiers collection, a bundle of fantastic fantasy roleplay settings. Amongst the PDFs included for a bargain price in the bundle is the Yggdrasill Core Rulebook – great timing if your curiosity about Norse adventure was sparked by the release of Uppsala last week!
Finally, there are just 8 days left to go for our latest Kickstarter project, World War Cthulhu: Cold War, and we’re closing in on our next stretch goal for a PDF set of handouts for use in your games. World War Cthulhu line developer Scott Dorward has been doing the rounds on the podcasts at the weekend, recording a special episode with The Good Friends of Jackson Elias, wherein he talks at great length about what makes the Cold War such a fascinating setting for Call of Cthulhu. Check it out here, and remember you can still pledge here.
There's just one day left to take of our massive summer blockbuster sale on all physical items over at our webstore.
But with so much great stuff on offer, how do you know what to pick? To help, we asked some of the Cubicle 7 team to pick their favourite books. Today, Andrew Kenrick picks his favourite book: The Eighth Doctor Sourcebook.
What a way to kick off a new week! Not only is our World War Cthulhu: Cold War Kickstarter continuing to break stretch goals (more on that later), but the 2015 ENnie Awards nominations are up!
We’re delighted to have been nominated for four awards – as well as to be nominated for best publisher:
Best Family Game: Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space Limited Edition Rulebook
