Many years ago when I was at High School in Canada, myself and a few friends used to play the board game 'Risk'...for hours. Wanting to introduce my own family now to the game, but with little real memory of it, I was delighted to find Forbidden Planet had a special edition Dr Who version! We have been delighted. It has all the elements of strategy blended with probability that make it a fascinating game to play, with the added bonus of actual Dalek armies...in three sizes, a mini tardis and references throughout to 11 regenerations of the Doctor as well as all his arch-enemies on the board and in the power and mission cards. For the price (significantly less than a legacy edition of the game I had seen recently) it is excellent value. We were a little disappointed with the colour ranges of the Daleks and they are a bit 'plasticy', but once you got used to them it's no problem, and they actually begin to develop characters after a while.
We had an issue with the delivery company which Forbidden Planet immediately began to investigate on our behalf, sending a replacement within two working days. It has taken nearly 4 weeks for the delivery company to acknowledge responsibility for failing to deliver the package and the customer service at Forbidden Planet has been outstanding. I would recommend both this game and this company very highly indeed.
