New Doctor Who Games for 50th Anniversary!
As the world’s favourite Time Lord celebrates fifty years on TV screens, innovative games company, Winning Moves UK, is releasing a range of licensed games to help celebrate Doctor Who’s landmark half-century.
Fans of the hit BBC sci-fi drama can test their time travelling knowledge with a brand new anniversary edition of Trivial Pursuit, indulge in strategic battles between five Dalek armies in a specially reworked version of classic board game, Risk, and enjoy six exclusive new Top Trumps packs in a Doctor Who edition of Top Trumps Turbo. There’s also a 1000-piece collector’s jigsaw which has been commissioned to mark the 50th Anniversary.
Here’s a quick rundown of them again, with a few thoughts:
- Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Trivial Pursuit (RRP £9.99, ages 12+, available from September 2013) – a Doctor Who-themed version of the popular quiz game
- Doctor Who Risk (RRP £34.99, ages 10+, available from October 2013) – a Doctor Who strategy game! At last!
- Top Trumps Turbo: Doctor Who (RRP £24.99, ages 6+, available from September 2013) – after the digital Top Trumps title of 2007, we’ve got high hopes for this one…
- Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Jigsaw (RRP £12.99, ages 10+, available from August 2013) – a 1000 piece jigsaw of Van Gogh’s painting of the TARDIS’ destruction.
The new Doctor Who licensed games will be available to buy on the High Street from a wide range of retailers including WH Smith, Toys R Us, Waterstones, Tesco, Asda, and John Lewis and widely available online. All products are also available to buy at www.winningmoves.co.uk and www.toptrumps.com
