The most notorious vampire of all rises again in this third edition of Fury of Dracula, a board game of deduction and gothic horror based on Bram Stoker’s classic novel. One player takes control of the legendary Count Dracula as he stealthily crosses Victorian-era Europe, spreading his diabolical vampirism everywhere he goes. Up to four other players govern Mina Harker and her determined companions as they try to locate and destroy the fiendish Count before he plunges Europe into horrific darkness. But in this heated game of cat and mouse, the hunted prey may also be preying on his hunters. Any day’s travel might bring the hunters to Dracula’s location. On any night the Count may attack.

Excited to finally try this in light of Specter Ops recent success.

Great!

That box cover though...

Kind of like the change to the Chaos in the Old World box cover.

That box cover art is atrocious. I hope the rest of the graphic redesign/direction isn't in the same vein. The older versions really had a 'gothic horror' feel to them. This one, not so much...

What a visual nosedive...they went from Hammer Horror to Halloween at Party City.

More changes...ugh...it didn't need any, if anything it needed to revert back to the GW edition.

HOOOO-LAY-SHIT! MY GAWD! MY FUCKING EYES.... Dracula looks like Grampa Munster and Jack Nicholson's Joker fucked, made a baby and it grew into that thing.

Damn it's awesome that the game is coming back into print. It's one of the best games ever made....but yeesh. Smart of them business wise to do a new version instead of a straight reprint. As an owner of the GW original and the FFG remake, this is something I'll probably look into. If it were just a new printing of their previous version I certainly wouldn't buy it. So yeah, this is probably gonna sell pretty well for them. I'm assuming they get it out for a Halloween release as that would make the most sense.

Well...I guess this is GEN CON pre-release bomb drop #1. Bring on the rest!

Twitter already blew up, could that little sneak peek be a tactical move?

But yeah, I agree the art sucks.

The link 404s. Fury of Dracula is not listed in their product section. Curious.

Can't stop the signal, FFG. PS, the art can fuck right off.

Cool, I've never gotten to play this. And from what I recall, I liked the old cover better.

Hmm, streamlined combat? Probably a good thing. I'd be happy if they just ckeaned up the rules for combat. The bold and italic items are always confusing.

New graphic design sounds ominous. I think the board from the FFG edition is a triumph. One of the best looking boards ever. If they monkey that up, it would be a shame.

New rules where Drac only activates at night and has some new mislead ability? Sounds like a pretty substantial alteration of the game's mechanics. Guess it will be a coin toss as they have historically been hit or miss there. Not putting my copy on the auction block yet.

It is strange that the page is no longer available via FFG. Maybe they saw that horrid box cover and came to their senses.

I'm going to wait and see. The existing FFG edition is one of my favorite games, so I am skeptical that the new rules will yield a better game. The graphic design of that edition was excellent, so I am not excited about any changes on that front either. This new cover is not terrible, but Dracula's smirk is almost intolerable.

Why does Dracula not have thumbs?
