Fantasy Flight Announces Third Edition Of The Classic Fury of Dracula

July 25, 2015 by deltagamegirl22

“Count Dracula has lived Un-Dead for centuries, if not millennia. He drove the Ottomans out of Romania, and became known as Vlad the Impaler for his brutal, bloody method of dispatching his enemies. He witnessed the devastation of the black plague and the innovations of the Industrial Revolution.”

“He has infinite wealth, infinite cunning, and countless bloodthirsty progeny scattered throughout Europe. He is by far the most legendary and most powerful of all vampires. Yet four brave mortals are now determined to find him and permanently destroy him at any cost.”

This will make the Third appearance for Fury of Dracula, and Fantasy Flight Games promises this edition features all-new art and graphic design that complement the game’s intuitive and highly thematic mechanics. One player assumes the role of Count Dracula and stealthily spreads his evil influence throughout Europe.

Up to four other players will take on the roles of iconic characters like Dr. Abraham Van Helsing, Dr. John Seward, Lord Arthur Godalming, and Mina Harker. Rounds have been broken into day and night, with the hunters taking actions during both. Dracula, however, can only act at night. Combat is now more streamlined and decisive.

Rumor tokens give Dracula new ways to mislead hunters and extend the reach of his influence. The Count triumphs if he advances his influence track to thirteen; if the hunters can defeat him before that happens, they win the game.

If you like complexity in board games, a focus on deduction as well as deception, then this is definitely a game for you.

Would you like to take on the role of the hunter or the hunted?
