Board Games 2209
(Updated: April 30, 2019)
(2nd edition review) There's a lot to like about FoD. It's fun, it's exciting, and the cooperation works well. But this is definitely a game from the 80s. It lasts way too long, with very little to distinguish any part of it from another. There's a lot of curlicues and chrome that add to the rules burden without really benefiting the game. Some of the random events are just brutal, such as the one that basically restarts the game. Our game only came to an end when it did because Dracula made an ill-advised attack in the daytime, allowing the hunters to dogpile on him. If he hadn't, we could still be playing it. And while it's fun and exciting, it's not THAT much so.
