The Doctor Who Collector's Edition of Yahtzee allows fans and collectors to roll custom dice featuring classic monsters from a custom TARDIS shaped dice cup and score through classic Yahtzee game play.
Roll three Daleks and two Cybermen for the classic combination Full House and the ultimate Doctor Who villain rivalry. If you roll five Weeping Angels, you've got the quantum locked high-scoring Yahtzee with a Doctor Who twist!
The collectible dice cup is the shape of the TARDIS and the five custom dice feature iconic Doctor Who foes. Custom dice feature Robot mummy, The Silence, Weeping Angel, Sontaran, Cyberman and Dalek.
I've played Yahtzee for years, it is a great, fun, family game and was good for learning to make sets and doing some maths. It has been a few years since I've played a game of Yahtzee but during that time I have become a much bigger fan of Doctor Who (I was already one, but when they started airing the new series I became even more of one) and when the 50th anniversary episode was due to air there were a lot of Doctor Who merchandise hitting the stores and when I saw this version of a game I loved I knew that I had to have this.
I now get to say that I have a TARDIS on my computer desk, as the dice, pencil and scorecards all fit inside this TARDIS, so it is doubly fun in that it can help decorate the room and the kids have had fun playing with this sturdy TARDIS. There are five dice and each has an image of a well know character on it, it is fun to note that the Cyberman on the dice look like those in the original series, so this also makes it a good tie in to the first Doctor's. The scorecards can easily be replaced in the future by any Yahtzee scorecard, though these ones have a TARDIS watermark on them and name the characters on the dice at the top.
A great game that serves as both fun, practical and decorative.
