Description Edit | History

A solitaire paragraph-booklet adventure game where the player assumes the role of the intrepid Time Lord himself - the Doctor!

"Evil events have overtaken the Universe! The Timelords and your home planet of Gallifrey have been destroyed in the Time War. You managed to escape, and now in a new regeneration, are standing at the console of your TARDIS as it flies through the Time Vortex."

This web published game is played using four booklets: Rules, Adventures, Enemies, and Events. Two six-sided dice are also required.

This game is currently available for free download here in PDF format. It also has its own Yahoo Group devoted to it where new rules and expansions are often premiered. Now in 2013, we also have a fully functioning DWSSG Wiki: http://dwssg.averyniceplace.de/wiki

Any further feedback or questions are always welcomed.

SC Games is a fan-based group which makes unofficial games purely as a labour of love. For DWSSG, all related characters, logos, and indicia of ‘Doctor Who’ are copyright and trademark BBC and used without permission.

More Information Edit | History

This is a solitaire story game - you read one numbered section after another. 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.

The sections are divided into Events (E00 numbers), Adventures (A00 numbers), Enemies (V00 numbers) that describe the various enemies and aliens that oppose the Doctor, and a rules booklet (R00 numbers).

Doctor Who is an adventure game. You play the game in turns. A standard turn starts with you selecting an Action such as Exploring, Planning, Escaping Capture etc. Depending on the action selected, you will be referred to a chart where you roll two dice. The dice roll may then indicate an event section, which you then resolve. After each action you roll to see if you have an encounter.

Some events may lead to fighting, described in the combat rules. You may also have additional characters join you as Allies. These additional characters are especially useful in fights, although some may have knowledge or abilities useful in certain events. Some characters become trusted Companions.

Generally in an Adventure, you will try to defeat an Enemy. This is done by gaining Plot events to reveal the Enemy Goal and then choosing to Defeat them as an Action in a final showdown!

Beware however - if you do not Defeat the Enemy by a time limit, they will have completed their deadly plan and beaten you!

Do you dare to risk sneaking into their lairs? It could be dangerous – but sabotage might be the only way of saving the universe...?
