A sci-fi fan and evident Whovian has created a 3D printed board game based on the exploits of his favourite doctor.
Called Tardis Run, the game takes the form of the popular BBC show’s iconic blue police box.
However, in typical Doctor Who style, the Tardis then unfolds to reveal a lot more inside, namely the board and its pieces: four Doctors and four foes.
Created by Joseph Larson, the two-player game is inspired by traditional board games, such as Backgammon, Parcheesi and the Ancient Egyptian game, Senet.
‘Many of the Doctor’s most feared opponents have teleported in to the Tardis to steal the last copy of the Black Scroll of Rassilon from the Tardis library,’ reads the game’s description.
Players must take turns to discover the Black Scroll and escape the Tardis, thus winning the game.
But it’s pistols at dawn even before the game commences, with players deciding who takes their turn first with the old fashioned ‘who’s been a Doctor Who fan the longest?’ showdown.
CNET reports that Monsters take their turn first, then players take turns rolling the paddles and moving their piece the number of spaces that appear.
The game reaches its end when one player has manoeuvered the board and taken all four pieces through the exit.
The game features 11 Doctors and the Tardis, 12 foes, including a Dalek, a Cyberman, a Silurian, a Silence and a Weeping Angel.
The game is currently available to buy from Larson’s Etsy store.
