Gale Force Nine to Make Doctor Who Board Games
I have a lot of friends who are Whovians. I, myself, wouldn’t mind a 10′ long scarf. The Dr. Who TV series has been going on for over 50 years and millions of people have enjoyed watching the adventures and antics of everyone’s favorite Time Lord. Warlord Games has announced a Dr. Who minis game. Now Gale Force Nine is coming out with a series of board games based on the series.
We got a little sneak-peek of what’s coming from GF9. Doctor Who: Time of the Daleks lets you be the Doctor. As you can expect from the name, your quest involves defeating one of the Doctor’s greatest rivals, the Daleks. Succeed and the universe is saved! Fail and the Doctor is removed from history entirely!
“We are very excited to be able to immerse ourselves into this iconic material and make the game for a show that has shaped generations of viewers,” said John-Paul Brisigotti, CEO of the Battlefront Group. “Having a serious love of the property is how we make our games, and the Whovians in our design teams are creating something truly unique with this new series.”
“We have seen the effort and creativity that Gale Force Nine has put into its other properties. Doctor Who fans are in for a treat with this new hobby board game series,” said Soumya Sriraman, EVP Film, Home Entertainment, and Licensing for BBC Worldwide North America.
As we get closer to launch, we’ll certainly be letting you know about the games.
