Doctor Who: The Role Playing Game
The boxed set comes with three books, character sheets, token and dice. Everything you need to play the game is supplied.
Intriguing to Non Role-Players and Non Doctor Who Fans Too
The box is even arranged to give you a quick start guide which is just a few pages to get you familiar with the game. My Mom read the quick start rules in a few minutes and was intrigued enough to try it. My Mom does not normally play Role Playing Games.I think the simple rules and introduction to the game for new players is what got her interested. Oh and it should be pointed out she’s not a Doctor Who fan either.
Easy to Learn and Use
With role playing games often daunting to new players who are intimidated by rules-heavy books (huge rule books that take forever to look something up in). This book presents the game simplified and is quick and easy to start up a game. I was disappointed that the game focused only on the 11th Doctor and no past Doctors or companions have a character file. It does seem however that Cubicle 7 is releasing other books for the other Doctors with the first two already in print.
I think the game designers have done a great job of making the game easy to learn and accessible. The character creation rules appear in both the Players Guide as well as the Game Master Guide. This means at the table when making characters, two people can at least work on creating a character instead of trying to share one book or all the players having to buy their own copy. I have not been able to start up a game yet but I hope to very soon especially around the 50th anniversary.
