Welcome to the world of the Doctor the endless battle across Time and Space,
between those who would seek to dominate and destroy, and those who wish to
protect and preserve. Amongst all this chaos, this seemingly endless strife, stands one
man, dedicated to healing that which is sick, willing to sacrifice himself and those
he cares for to fight for cosmic justice. A Timelord, once the last of his kind, still a
renegade but also an example of what his people could be. He protects the Time
Vortex the only way he knows how, with ever-changing companions, a blue box to
travel in, a quick mind, a sonic device and an eternity of adventures waiting for him
We have divided the journey to learn and play the rules for this game into three
different booklets so you can start by learning the core rules and jump straight to
your first scenario using only the contents of this box.

The first booklet which we could call the basic mechanics is the battle system
explained in this Rules booklet you are now reading. Players use the Battle cards,
plus two sets of faction miniatures and their Recruitment cards, to fight a skirmish
battle that runs through several turns and concludes according to the scenario
objectives. Once players are familiar with the game mechanics, they can use the
Adventure cards for a more advanced experience!

The second booklet is the Guide to the Time Vortex, which contains details on the
two factions represented on this boxed game the Daleks and the Cybermen
and introduces six scenarios to play not only with them, but with any other factions
available in the future.

The third booklet is the Adventures booklet which introduces the game to a faction
made of the Doctor and his companions, explaining how to assemble the group of
special characters and two special scenarios to play with them!

The following section explains the core rules to play a game of Exterminate!

Certain characters, weapons or special traits may grant the option to attack
more than once in melee. This ability is normally described as Melee (X) where
X is a number higher than one. Characters that can issue more than one melee
attack can decide to do this in two ways:

All for One:

A character with multiple melee attacks can use each additional attack to add
+1 to the total number of dice allowed by its weapon or its profile
modifier. All dice are rolled at once and any other modifiers apply normally.
A miniature with the Melee (2) trait would therefore add +1 die to its attacks,
Melee (3) would give +2 dice and so on.

One for All:

A character with multiple attacks may attack more than one miniature. Any
enemy miniature within one inch of the target is a valid additional target.
Once declared, roll all the dice for each attack separately and resolve the
outcome for each target. Targets get to respond normally to these attacks but
be aware that if the character using Melee (X) becomes
Shocked before the last round of attacks is resolved, it can
be Finished Off normally by the declared target that did
not resolve its attack yet.

Two Cybermen have engaged a Dalek. The
Cyberman Recruitment card has the Melee (2) special
trait which means they can issue two attacks instead of
one when engaged in melee. The Daleks have the Melee
stat of 2 .
The first Cyberman player decides to attack All for One
using the Melee (2) special trait, which grants him one
additional Combat die when attacking. The first
Cyberman (+5 ) engages the Dalek and rolls to hit
with seven Combat dice (5 for its melee value, +1
for engaging and +1 for the additional attack that
Melee (2) grants). The Dalek rolls 2 as a response.
All results from both rolls are compared, applying
damage if necessary. This concludes the first Cyberman
round of attacks. If the Dalek is still active, the second
Cyberman will attack All for One with eight Combat dice
(5 for its value, +1 for engaging, +1 for the
additional attack that Melee (2) grants and +1 bonus
for being the second miniature to attack the same target).
