During the Essen Spiel, Cubicle 7 showed off their newest card game based on the Doctor Who Franchise: The Time Clash starter set. This new card game features an all new, unique design that has been well received by convention patrons and will be hitting store shelves this November. The game plays quickly for 2-4 players with an emphasis on balancing threats from different angles. As described on Cubicle 7’s website:
“You’ll play cards representing plans, threats, tech, and quips to stacks that represent the time of the struggle, the Doctor’s companion, and the enemy’s influence. The two sides also compete to control the Doctor’s location, which activates or deactivates crucial powers.”
Look for this exciting new game in the coming months here at Comic Quest!
NEW IN GAMING

Dear students, it’s time for the final exams of the Potions class! The rules are always the same: Take an ingredient marble from the dispenser and watch the others fall. If you connect marbles of the same color, they explode and you can take them, too! Complete your potions using the marbles you collect, and drink them to unleash their magical power. Remember, though, that to win the Student of the Year award, being quick won’t be enough: you’ll also need to brew the most valuable potions in Potion Explosion!
