Win YAHTZEE: Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Edition (Ends 1/22)

Doctor Who Yahtzee

I’m happy to say that after a long hiatus (like 3+ years), Allie and I have jumped back into the new Doctor Who series. We had been watching up until the Matt Smith Doctor just began but then just stopped for one reason or another.

We’ve now caught up as much as we can on Netflix and apparently we’re just one season behind. Hopefully that one will show up soon so we can be 100% caught up. There’s just something tragically awesome about the whole series. It’s magical. It’s confusing, as time travel always is. It’s full of thick British accents. And, well, there’s just so much awesomeness and… well, pure goodness at its core.

So when I discovered that my super-cool friends over at USAopoly had a Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Edition of Yahztee, well, you don’t need a sonic screwdriver to decipher whether I wanted to review one or not.

The game plays exactly like Yahtzee, which, if you’ve never played before, is like playing poker with dice. You roll five dice up to three times each turn, trying to make all sorts of “hands.” There’s 3 of a kind, 4 of a kind, full house and even Yahtzee (5 of a kind). Points are awarded based on what you roll so there is certainly some strategy and lots of risk in this one.

The Doctor Who version of Yahtzee follows the same rules. Sorry, no time travelling allowed, otherwise you’d just have an infinite number of chances at getting Yahtzee. But the dice feature six different Doctor Who-related characters: Robot Mummy, The Silence, Weeping Angel, Sontaran, Cybermen, and Dalek. Oh, and yeah, instead of the normal boring black cup to toss the dice around in, you get your very own TARDIS.

YAHTZEE: Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Collector’s Edition

“EX-TER-MIN-ATE”

Duck! The Daleks are shooting at you, and the Doctor is nowhere to be found! Thankfully, America’s #1 Dice Game features the TARDIS as the dice cup, and if you give your wrist a shake in time, you can help the Doctor make his enemies fall!

Do you have what it takes to “lord” over your foes? Roll 2 Sontarans and 3 Cybermen to destroy a “full house” of monsters. Or defeat not 1 but 5 Daleks to yell out, “Yahtzee!” The game includes custom white dice with images of Doctor Who monsters including Robot Mummy, The Silence, Weeping Angel, Sontaran, Cybermen, and Dalek.

AGES 8+
1+ players
MSRP: $19.95

I grabbed my lovely companion (who just happens to also be my wife) and dove right into a game. Allie couldn’t wait to see what came out of the TARDIS first!

Allie Doctor Who Yahtzee

She seemed to be taking an early lead. That is until on my first of three rolls, I got this…

Doctor Who Straight
BAM! I rolled a straight!

I later had 4 Daleks and took a chance going for 5, and the Yahtzee. Sadly, I failed.

The Daleks did not want me to get a Yahtzee.

Apparently even in dice games, Daleks can be total tools.

E-X-T-E-R-M-I-N-A-T-E A-L-L Y-A-H-T-Z-E-E-S-!
E-X-T-E-R-M-I-N-A-T-E     A-L-L     Y-A-H-T-Z-E-E-S-!

In the end, I actually beat Allie by a whopping 10 points! That’s pretty darn close when it comes to Yahtzee. I really love all these fun variations USAopoly’s putting out, and the Doctor Who version is no exception!

A really great addition to any Doctor Who fan’s home. And really, who wouldn’t want their own dice-filled Police Box?

    If you want to know the crystal clear details it is better to view
    just about any online store web sites explaining the actual product
    or service information using elements. Adiphene the new weight loss formula is now available with the power of 11 different
    fat burners to boost weight loss. With more time now passed, those rates
    would be even higher as obesity is still on the rise.

  2. kathy pease says

    I would have to say the Weeping Angel.. Ok I lied honestly I have never seen it and just picked one off the list.

  3. Amy says

    I love this giveaway!!! Doctor Who and Yahtzee? Epic! <3 Thanks for the review and giveaway! I'd have to say that the Dalek are my favorite as far as villains go. They're silly and harmless.

  4. Melissa w. says

    I have only watched it once, but my son loves it. The bad guys in the episode that I watched were all these creepy mannequins that came to life and chased everybody around.

  5. Amy Heffernan says

    This game is so neat. My 14 year old was telling me about a Dr. Who Monopoly game he wanted but i cannot find nothing around here anywhere like it. He is a huge Dr. Who fan!! :) Glad you had fun!

  6. Lauren E. says

    Most hated : Daleks
    Most nightmares: Vashta Nerada
    (I slept with a light on, and wouldnt cross shadows for weeks)

  7. Carolyn Colley says

    I watch Dr. Who some, but my husband is the Dr. Who fan, in fact he watched it all day the other day. I would love to win this for him, he has a birthday coming up and this would be so awesome to be able to give him this.

  8. Leslie S. says

    I would have to go with the Vashta Nerada. There is something so creepy about not being able to see what is coming to get you.

  9. Pauline Milner says

    My favorite Doctor Who villain is Borusa. Thank you for the super giveaway opportunity. Keep up the terrific blogging.

  10. Kendra S says

    I watch this with my kids, but don’t get to see all the episodes. My daughter loves The Weeping Angels, who I think are creepy. The Daleks crack me up and creep me out at the same time. I don’t know if Cassandra counts as a villain, but I enjoyed her as well. And my daughter says we can’t have a list of villains without including the Vashta Nerada.

  11. curiouskit10 says

    Oh awesome, this was the game I said was my fave USAopoly! Unfortunately, I think most of the villains have suffered too much villain decay and don’t have a lot of impact anymore. Weeping Angels were scary exactly once, Dalek’s are contractually required to show up each season but that means they no longer pose much threat… While he was all over the place in old Doctor Who, I like the infrequency of The Master nowadays.

  12. Christina A. says

    Ooooh…I think I have to go with the Cybermen! While Daleks are terrifying in their own awful way, there is a certain horror that goes with actually being TURNED INTO a Cyberman!

  13. Anastasia says

    Weeping Angels are super creepy, but so is The Silence! Tough choice, but I’d be more scared of the Angels because I’d remember seeing them hehe 😀

  14. Sunnymay says

    Weeping Angel is my favorite Doctor Who Villain. Thanks for showing detailed pictures of the Yahtzee dice, so I could tell as I’ve not seen Doctor Who before.
    I remember playing Yahtzee and enjoyed hearing the dice shaking in the cup before tossing it on the table. If the dice fell off or was crookedly tilted on something, we re-tossed.

  15. Amanda Kinder says

    It would have to be the Weeping Angels. I don’t think I’ll be able to look at an angel the same way again.

  16. Bev Edge says

    I adore Doctor Who and it’s hard to pick just one villain from their rogue’s gallery. In the end, I choose the Silence. They really freaked me out when they were first introduced!

  17. April says

    I have several favorites, but the one that still creeps me out is the virus from Waters of Mars. I also have this secret love of the Vashta Nerada (who weren’t *really* villains, just force-ably re-homed ^_^ ) . :)

  18. Elizabeth Ray says

    Much as I love the old school villians (I became a fan in the Tom Baker days) I have to say the Weeping Angels. Yipes! (Perhaps because I blink MUCH more ofter than most people – I would be SO dead SO quickly!)

  19. Amy Honious says

    I honestly have never seen the show, but I do have a 19 yr old son away at college who lives by this show! Thanks for the very nice giveaway :)

  20. nuronerd says

    I’m still a fan of “The Master”…despite being an old school enemy. But then again so are the Daleks.

  21. Georgette says

    I’m still very new to Dr. Who so pardon my ignorance (no, seriously!). I would have to say I am not real fond of those Daleks.

  22. Kortney Picker says

    I have not seen Doctor Who, but I have heard great things about it, I think I might start watching the series! I would love to win this for my friends that love Doctor Who!!

  23. vickie couturier says

    Robot Mummy someone here says,ive never seen it myself,but I know its something my grown sons an bigger grandsons would like

  24. says

    I love the Weeping Angels, so creepy. Every time my son and I pass a statue we joke to each other not to blink. I also loved the Vashta Nerada, they were super creepy, I always check to make sure I only gave one shadow.

  25. Carole Ingram says

    My favorite would be the Daleks…but if I had to pick just a person , it would be “The Master” …. this is such a cool game but now they made it better!! My girls would go crazy over this!! :) love it!
