Product Description

Product Description

Count Dracula has left his home in Transylvania to travel by ship to London, where he plans to hunt for innocent victims. The famous Dr. van Helsing got wind of Dracula's plans and immediately caught the next carriage to London. It is a race against time! Van Helsing tries to find and destroy all of the vampire's coffins, while the Count tries to find five victims. Will the horror end tonight or will the Count's reign of terror continue?

From the Manufacturer

The game is set in late pre-history, time of transition when our distant ancestors, who had struggled and barely survived For Ages in very small nomadic groups, began to feel their lives would be more secure and less arduous if they formed larger groups. This led to the formation of the first villages. The players compete to be involved in the most and most valuable villages.

Dracula: 2 Players, Ages 12+, Average Play Time = 30 Minutes

The learning curve was fairly low and teaching the game to others turned out the be pretty easy. Once players saw how movement and encounter cards intertwined, gameplay became fairly quick. My first instinct before I understood the rules completely was to silently pick out an action card, then move that many spaces intending to play it after moving. However, should I ever enter combat, the card I picked out may not have a high enough combat rating on it for me to win. After a few turns, the kids and I began to understand why the action card is played after moving.

With that understanding of the gameplay mechanics opens up the strategy element. Do you take the risk and move a lot of spaces, possibly limiting your action card choice? What if you run into an enemy companion and have to fight, but all of your high valued combat cards don't cover your high movement cost? I found in my experiences that players will be required to balance their movement based on the action cards they have in their hand.

Moving and action cards aside, swapping out encounter cards can be a game changer. You will also have the ability to bluff...that is...pretend you're swapping something out, giving the impression that you moved an opponent's target card into your encounter deck when you really didn't. This mechanic really keeps the "other guy" guessing, as they never know what their opponent is finally placing there. Combining a bluff and some well placed barriers can send your opponent on a wild goose chase, if you manage to convey that something is important on a space that isn't.

Vinnie (11) and I had a lot of fun with Dracula.

I bought this game on a whim back in 2005, and really had fun playing it. Then I put it aside and forgot about for about 4 years until the other day when I dug it up again. I'm glad to see this game is still available.

It's a great two-player game that will give you hours of enjoyment. A usual game lasts about a half hour or less, so you can play multiple games in on sitting. You play either Dracula roaming the board looking for victim cards, or play Van Helsing looking for coffin cards. Be the first to get all five "target" cards and win the game. But watch out for strong vampires, vampires hunters, cross or amulet cards that will cost you life tokens. There are three ways to win the game so it never gets dull. Highly recommended game. Loads of fun.

I had a blast playing this game. Easy to learn, quick to pick up, but complex in its strategies, "Dracula" is surprising in many ways. The day I was introduced to it, I had to buy my own copy of the game.
