This is a continuing series of the Doctor's adventures through this well-received solo game and this geek continues their torrid pace of excellent narrative blended with enough procedural information so that even newbies can follow along. Great job!

Whatever your answer to the question posed in the title, I'm sure just about every parent has been where this geek describes in their report. It's a great tale of perseverence and a nice read for all gaming parents. Good work!

I have a feeling that if I had any experience with this game, the storyboard narrations would have been unnecessary, but as I don't, they were certainly a welcome addition! Without the pictures, this is a rather ho-hum recount of a play of this game. With the pictures, the story truly comes alive in all its silly glory. Excellent read!
