I love Dr. Who. Here’s a solo game that lets you help the Doctor save the universe. From the game description:
‘Doctor Who’ is a paragraph based solitaire story game. You read various numbered sections one after another but the sequence of the paragraphs is determined by rules and tables. Each describes a new situation, or provides rules about the choices and actions you can make. There are plenty of events and situations, so each game will be a new, fresh experience.
Here’s a link to a set of Dr. Who miniatures rules.
Welcome to the Doctor Who Solitaire Story Game Playable Wiki!
Here you will find just some of the adventures of a 1000-year-old, renegade Time Lord!
This is not a wiki about the game – this wiki is the game!
Travel as The Doctor and take a journey through the realms of time and space in the TARDIS – a time machine which exists within seemingly impossble dimensions. But, on the outside, it looks just like a 1960s British Police Box!
Ably assisted by loyal travelling companions from ages ancient and modern, you will reveal and encounter many and varied devious enemies. Try to discover their evil plans and defeat them before time runs out and, sometimes… just sometimes, you’ll end up rescuing the entire universe from certain doom!
The Doctor Who Solitaire Story Game is based on the cult BBC TV series ‘Doctor Who’. Almost 50 years old and still going strong, the science fiction fantasy series continues to build an ever-expanding universe of tales, culture and folklore. All these stories tell of a mysterious enigmatic humanoid alien, The Doctor.
Crow’s Nest has a very nice set of paper Dr. Who Miniatures. I’m going to print them out and make a set for my eight year old Dalek Fan.
