Fury Of Dracula Board Game
|Fury of Dracula is an excellent 1 vs. many board game that lasts between 2 and 3 hours per play. Think Milton Bradley's classic Scotland Yard meets Fantasy Flight's coop dynamo Arkham Horror!
One player takes on the role of Bram Stoker's Dracula, while anywhere from 1 to 4 other players control a team of vampire hunters that attempt to track down and defeat Dracula. The game is very true to the novel and many of the "Events" in the game directly correlate to the book.
The game board is a map of Europe which can be traversed by road, rail, or sea. Sea movement in this game is identical to Avalon Hill's Diplomacy. Dracula moves about the map in secret, while the vampire hunters spread out across Europe searching desperately for Dracula before he creates enough vampire minions to take over all of Europe.
Once the hunters stumble onto Dracula's trail, they must fight their way through Arkham Horror-like "Encounters" left behind by Dracula in order to catch up to him. Unlike Scotland Yard, the hunters don't immediately win when they confront Dracula. In this game, the hunters must then attempt to fight and defeat Dracula in order to save Europe, but Dracula has the ability to fight back or escape. Should Dracula escape, the hunters must then choose to continue to fight their way through encounters to confront and fight Dracula again, OR rest and resupply and then track down Dracula's trail once more.
The game is an excellent mix of teamwork, deduction, strategy, and dice-rolling (combat). This game is possibly THE most requested play out of my gaming group. We have also found it to be extremely balanced with Dracula winning about 50% of the time, and the hunters winning the other half of the time.
I highly recommend this game if you are not put off by the 2-3 hour play time of this game. If you enjoy Scotland Yard or Arkham Horror, this is a must play!
