Doctor Who Risk The Dalek Invasion of Earth Pre Order

Doctor Who Risk The Dalek Invasion of Earth

forbidden-planet-doctor-who-risk

In this brand new edition of Risk, multiple Dalek armies descend from the skies, seeking an ancient artefact that will enable them to conquer the galaxy.

Pre-order Doctor Who Risk exclusive to Forbidden Planet

Earth. Early 20th century. The planet has faced many invasions in the past, but never has mankind faced an assault like this, as multiple Dalek armies descend from the skies, seeking to destroy one another and conquer the world.

Many years ago, an ancient artefact was hidden somewhere on the planet, an artefact that will enable the Daleks to reign supreme across the universe, defeating any who stand in their way. Such an object is so valuable that even the Daleks cannot agree how best to wield it, and have split into renegade armies, each as cunning and determined as the next.

Play as one of 5 different armies, either classic (Black, Bronze & Silver) or New Dalek Paradigm (Red & Yellow)as you invade Earth seeking the ancient weapon. Only once all opposition has been wiped out can you begin the search – will you be the last Dalek army left? Watch out for the TARDIS sweeping round the board to defend Earth!

As you fight for supremacy, the Doctor will do his best to stop you, bringing peace to a different territory each turn, and if your army is not victorious by his eleventh regeneration, then the battle is over and all Daleks must retreat as the Oncoming Storm saves the Earth.

With special power cards to boost your forces or destroy your plans, and special missions to defeat other invading forces, this game of Risk is an epic battle for control of the Earth…and the universe.

    Risk is a classic war board game where each player battles it out for world World domination or to complete a mission. It uses dice to decide outcomes of battles with each round consisting of re-enforcements, attack and then manoeuvre. Games can last between 30 min to 4 hours depending on the tactics employed by each player. Sometimes a riskier move can mean you win ot it can go wrong and you can make yourself weak. Risk is fairly easy to grasp although there is a little learning curve.

      I got word back from Winning Moves that the TOP TRUMPS Card is from the Turbo 6-Pack Set. It’s from the Stories Pack called “Name Of The Doctor”…

      It’s a game of war, conquest and domination, involving strategy and tactics and campaigns can potentially run into a few hours of playing time. Board games don’t seem to be for everyone but I’ve always loved them and especially Risk.
      I have the traditional version of the game aswell as the Star Wars and Lord of the Rings versions. A Doctor Who version based on a Dalek invasion is a childhood dream come true! ;-)

      But what do you do in it? Can someone explain the basic rules

      risk is a strategy game where a number of opponents control a battalion usually made out of three different classes. The aim of the game is to control as much land as you can, While defending the land you own from other players. Some parts of the board are worth more than others, and so you get points for controlling each land based on how big it is. Points in this case don’t make prizes, but they can buy you more troops. The game ends when one player controls all of the board.

      And that is Risk.
