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?

You can still become a subscriber for a very limited time with the Later Years Doctors Subscription deal at our webstore.

The Subscription Deal Returns

When we first announced the series, we offered a time-limited subscription deal for fans to be sent each of the books as they were released. We were blown away by both the uptake of this deal, and by those of you who missed out asking if we’ll do another subscription.

As we’re over half way through the series, we thought the time was right to launch a new subscription deal to give fans of the game who missed out first time round a way to get themselves a great deal on the second half of the series, have them sent as soon as they are available, and to support us in the creation of this series.

The Deal – the Later Years

This includes:

  • Five titles: The Seventh, Eighth, Ninth, Tenth and Eleventh Doctor Sourcebooks (the first three books in the deal are 160 pages long, the last two 240 pages).
  • Both physical copies and PDFs.

The MSRP for these books will be $185/£126 plus shipping – the subscription deal is $165/£110 plus shipping, a saving of $20/£16.

Shipping

The shipping rate depends on where the books are delivered to – 10% of the total order for UK/USA, 20% for Canada/Europe and 35% for everywhere else.

Timescale

The Seventh Doctor Book is due to be delivered in September, with the PDF being available in August. The Eighth Doctor Book is almost complete, with the Ninth, Tenth and Eleventh Doctor Books well underway too. As originally announced, we aim to carry on releasing a book every other month. Of course, unanticipated delays can crop up, and in this case we will communicate with you on progress. In any case, subscribers will receive both the books as soon as they are available, and also get exclusive access to the PDFs before they go on sale anywhere else.

Cancellation and refunds

If, for whatever reason, you need to cancel your subscription, we will refund your subscription fee minus the full cost and shipping of the books you’ve had already.

Hitting the shelves of US gaming stores today – The Fourth Doctor Sourcebook for Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space and The Darkening of Mirkwood for The One Ring Roleplaying Game.

4th doc mirkwood banner

Stores elsewhere in the world should be receiving their copies soon. We’re also pleased to confirm that all UK pre-orders of The Darkening of Mirkwood and The Fourth Doctor Sourcebook have now been dispatched, with pre-orders to the rest of the world well on their way too.

About The Fourth Doctor Sourcebook

The-Fourth-Doctor-Pyramids-of-Mars-Cover-400

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, this Sourcebook explores the Fourth 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!

Freed from his exile on Earth, the Doctor returned to his wandering ways, drawn to some of the great battles of the cosmos. Team up with a fellow Time Lord and a robot dog, explore E-Space, search for the Key to Time and return to Gallifrey as its saviour. Uncover the secrets of the Pyramids of Mars, change the destiny of the Daleks and thwart the machinations of the Master’s final incarnation.

But first things first... would you like a jelly baby?

This 256-page book contains:

  • Character sheets for the Fourth Doctor and his companions, including Sarah Jane Smith and both incarnations of Romana.
  • How to run games that feel like they belong in the Fourth Doctor’s era.
  • New character traits and gadgets.

About The Darkening of Mirkwood

Darkening of Mirkwood

The Necromancer may have been cast out of Dol Guldur, but a lingering darkness remains over Mirkwood, a shadow that will grow ever longer as the years draw on – unless a fellowship of heroes step forward and hold back the gloom.

The Darkening of Mirkwood is a complete campaign for The One Ring, set in Mirkwood over the course of three decades. It allows you to tell your own epic saga, following your heroes in their quest as the tale of years unfolds before them.

This supplement includes enough adventure material to keep you playing for months or even years, as well as new rules that give your heroes a real stake in what happens to the world around them. Rules for Holdings allow them to carve out their own corner of Middle-earth, whilst new options for the Fellowship Phase and Undertakings to achieve allow them to chart their own path.

Visit the Parliament of Spiders, do battle with the Nazgûl, meddle in the affairs of Wizards and enter the Halls of King Thranduil. Stand firm against the Shadow and maybe the Darkening of Mirkwood can be averted. Falter for even a moment and all that you know and love will be lost.

This 144-page supplement includes:

  • A campaign spanning 30 years worth of game time, including complete adventures and plot hooks in abundance.
  • Stats for the Nazgûl for the first time.
  • New Fellowship phase undertakings.
  • Rules for Holdings, allowing heroes to carve out their own corner of Middle-earth.

144 pages, hardcover, full-colour interior.

The Darkening of Mirkwood – also available in PDF now!
