I was a little reluctant when I heard that Fantasy Flight Games was planning on streamlining this game. I loved so much about it, that how could they possibly make it better. The more I thought about it, however, the more I realized that the game did have some clunky rules, and perhaps a new edition could indeed simplify a few game concepts.
For those of you new to the game, Fury of Dracula is a contest for 2-5 players. One player takes on the role of the evil Count Dracula, and the others take on the roles of the vampire hunters form Bram Stoker's historic novel- Abraham van Helsing, Mina Harker, Dr. Seward, & Lord Godalming. The hunters begin in various cities around Europe, each connected to other cities by road and rail lines, then Dracula can choose his secret starting location. As opposed to the second edition, in this edition the hunters a daytime action and a nighttime action. Hunters can only move between cities during the day.Read more ›
Knowledge of the novel is not required for play, though it certainly does help the players to understand their roles.
This game is competitive. The Dracula Player is competing against the Hunter player(s) by completing a certain set of objectives to score a determined set of victory points.
This would seem basic if it were not for the mystery and sleuthing element of Dracula's movement. The Dracula player's moves are kept secret and noted by playing face-down cards showing his location. A certain number of cards are kept on the board providing a trail. If a hunter lands on a place where Dracula has been, they recieve encounters and clues noting his passage and must then determine where he went next.
Educationally it really focuses memory and reasoning skills. Especially if the Dracula player is exceptionally cunning. The game will never repeat itself and makes each session unique.
The encounter resolution system allows combat to take place in less than three minutes. This gets the encounter resolved quickly and puts the players back into tracking down the vampire.
The player markers are plastic but well sculpted/molded and surprisingly rubust. The counters and tokens are of a thick and sturdy card board, not flimsy card stock. The board, sheets, and cards are of excellent durability and visually helpful by showing each hunter's unique powers right on the card for easy reference and having card icons to indicate the size of your maximum inventory.Read more ›
The game recommends the most experienced player be Dracula. This is true. As my boys are only 10 and 8, they would have struggled to be Dracula right out of the box so I took that role first game. After our first game, my 10 year old handled Dracula like a champ! After our second game, my 8 year old did a great job as Dracula with only one hiccup during the game - he got a little excited and forgot what city he was in! Aside from that, he handled Dracula perfectly for the rest of the game. Three games and 11 hours later, the kids finally had to go to bed - they were exhausted.
I bought this game specifically to help develop my childrens deductive reasoning by tracking Dracula and following the clues. This is also a great game to teach kids how to work together as a team, communicate with each other, strategize, teach them to see how their actions have an impact on future rounds of the game and realize where they went wrong.
Long story short, the game has a lot of pieces to it and it appears to be complicated, but once you get a game under your belt and pick up on the rules it is a lot of fun.
Our next game - Arkham Horror!!!

Great board game, simply put. It is a little dense and the rules are somewhat complicated but it will make more sense if you play a game with the rule book out. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Matt
