“It is known that the Doctor requires companions.”

(Dalek Supreme - ‘Asylum of the Daleks’)

The Doctor is never without his loyal companion – and neither should players of the Doctor Who Solitaire Story Game. This second Companion expansion supplies new rules and depth to Adventures with many new Actions, giving Enemy Goals new types for you to Prevent, extending rules for regeneration, as well as introducing ways to personalise your own TARDIS and sonic screwdriver. There are even rules to modify the game so that it can be played as a competitive game. The universe just got a lot bigger again...

Available here at BGG and at the game's Yahoo group - October 6th 2012

As David says, there's a cover problem.

Normal service soon...

Another sheet has now been cleared. What do people think of these as an idea?

This is way better than writing stuff down on scraps of paper.

Sadly, there's been another slight delay, but I'm hoping to resolve it shortly

I like them and would make use of them if I didn't run exclusively on a computer via PDFs. They do make me think more about coming up with something to bring these sort of aids into play there too. Even just something to pull up the right image and keep it handy would be nice.

I started work awhile ago on a note-keeping app that would have worked well for that but I've been trying to get back to it for almost a year now, which is a depressing thought. All I really had working was an adventure selector and even that needed some layout and usability improvements.

Take that as a positive though: even somebody who doesn't strictly use play aids wants to rework his personal system so he can use these.

Thanks for everyone's patience

And there will be big news about something else tomorrow...

Arghhh! Now I wont sleep. . . . oh wait I don't sleep very well anyway so no change there.

A day out at IKEA with the wife and mother in law, more DW goodness and having a romantic meal out after (without mother in law) can Friday get any better? Oh yes it can, more big news as well.

The only thing that could spoil that is if the Christmas special featured cheese monsters again.

Looking forward to my holiday next weekend. My DWSSG has already been packed ready. I'll get the reference sheet printed up and ready to take tomorrow. Holidays seem to be the only time I get to play these days.
