Celebrate 50 years of Doctor Who with Doctor Who themed Yahtzee and Monopoly

Doctor Who logoCelebrate the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who with two Who-themed classic games from the fine folks at USAopoly. The first of these games is Doctor Who Monopoly,  where episode titles replace the street names and use some of the Doctor’s trademark accessories as tokens. This release has been on our radar for awhile now, and I’m excited it’s release is right around the corner.

The second release, which was a surprise to me, is Doctor Who Yahtzee. Everyone’s favorite dice game is getting a Doctor Who face lift featruing the TARDIS as the dice cup and, of course, Doctor Who monsters label the dice. Doctor Who Yahtzee should be available in December from Amazon and other specialty retailers.
