Doctor Who Editions of Popular Games

by blackspanielgallery

If you are a Doctor Who fan you will be interested in the special edition games that showcase Doctor Who. In fact, the forst eleven Doctor Who characters are all well represented,

Doctor Who, the immensely popular science fiction series from Britten, has now passed fifty years since its inception. Many board games now have Doctor Who editions, some in response to the fiftieth anniversary of Doctor Who. And these editions are especially designed for the great number of Doctor Who fans.

These board games can be the focal point of a game night, whether it is with family or friends. Or, when guests stay overnight as often happens for many people during the holidays, board games can help entertain them on at least one of those nights.

Since many of the games were released for the fiftieth anniversary, the twelfth Doctor Who is not always included.

Assume the Persona of Your Favorite Doctor

There are at this time eleven Doctor Who characters, each distinct, in the packs being sold.  Unlike most television series that replace an actor or actress when one leaves, Doctor Who comes up with a distinct character and keeps going.  So, there are eleven doctors from which to choose.  If you act as one of the eleven doctors, and play the game while in character, the experience can be even more enjoyable.  One way of announcing which person is emulating which doctor is to place the doctor as depicted in the action figure set shown below in front of the corresponding player.

Trivial Pursuit Doctor Who Edition

Trivial Pursuit can be great fun, and a special edition like the Doctor Who edition provides a way for fans to show how much they know about the series.  This edition of the popular board game provides a refreshing relief from using the same questions over and over.  But, it requires knowledge of the first eleven doctors.  This allows people to demonstrate how much they know about the series as a whole, and even gives insights into the series that might have been missed when the series was viewed.  This is highly recommended for the true Doctor Who fans.

It exceeds fifty years and has had different Doctor Who characters.

I am slow in catching on to how popular Dr. Who is, but I am hearing the show mentioned more and more. We have hundreds (I think) of episodes on Netflix if I ever wanted to dive in and give the series a try. I love shows produced in Britain.
