This April the new Doctor Who: Don’t Blink boardgame will test if you could really outwit the Weeping Angels

Gale Force Nine have announced a new Doctor Who board game, featuring the Weeping Angels. In Don’t Blink, the TARDIS has crashed on a derelict spaceship and the Doctor and their companions are in a race against time to collect the parts needed to repair it. But they’ll have to do it while staying one step ahead of the terrifying and iconic Weeping Angels. And true to the television episodes they appeared in, you can only stop these deadly killers by constantly looking at them. Only when players on the board don’t have line of sight of the lonely assassins can they make their move.

Don’t Blink divides players into two teams. One to four players take on the role of the Doctor and their companions Amy, Rory, and Clara as they search the ship to find the four parts needed to repair the TARDIS and escape. Meanwhile, one player takes control of the Weeping Angels and tries to outmaneuver and capture them one by one. The game uses a modular board of 9 different tiles as well as adjustable difficulty to ensure a different and challenging adventure every time you play!
