Cool Doctor Who Things!
I have this 50th Anniversary Doctor Who Yahtzee game and the TARDIS dice cup is a fantastic model that I feel was well worth the price of an otherwise underwhelming game. The dice are painted on and the images only so-so ... understandably it's a small area. I would have preferred the Zygons on the "1's" spot to the "Robot Mummy" that was used. But, as I said ... fantastic TARDIS. So, no complaints.
Coming in July will be this:
Dalek variation of the same product, but with "Hero Dice" instead of "Monster Dice" K-9, the Sonic Screwdriver, the TARDIS, a Doctor Who Scarf ... etc. I am going to pre-order this one sight unseen. The TARDIS dice cup was so wonderful that I am expecting similar quality from the Dalek dice cup and am willing to take the plunge based on that alone.
Then there's this ...
A British version is already out over there and Amazon lists it for something ridiculous like $280. But the USAopoly version will be available in the states some time this month and this might actually be a game I would play. It looks like it could be a lot of fun. Of course what would really be awesome would be this same sort of product, but done as a Dalek/Doctor Who version of Small World ... now that would ROCK!
Anyway, just passing along the love for fellow fans of Doctor Who.
