I’m all too easily impressed by technology. And when you combine it with Doctor Who. And then add in a collectible element. And cards. And… Well, I have exercised my sanity and promised not to get involved. I purchased the first issue of the Doctor Who Monster Invasion magazine, but certainly don’t intend to go any further than that.
In the end, this amounts to Top Trumps. Yes, it sort of tries a little harder than that and the magazine will provide more ideas and variations on playing the game; but, in the end you’re buying a magazine about Top Trumps AND having to spend £1.50 a booster packet (or something like that) for 9 additional cards. And you’re aiming at 165 (or so) for a complete set. And that probably doesn’t include the 1 in 1000 booster card ‘The Infinite’.
Seriously, I’m not getting into this; but, I can be impressed by the cool of having a 3-D Dalek pop out of my card when I look on my computer via web cam. Oh, and the web site’s sort of cool as well…
