Game Plot: Various Vampire hunters try to track down the elusive Count in a race across Europe.
This beautifully illustrated game isn’t quite as co-operative as the previous two, being a sort of one against many hidden movement game. One person plays Dracula, traveling in ways only he can see, the others – from four players having a good time, down to one player getting their brain melted – try to locate his trail before time runs out.
A genuinely tense cat and mouse game that generally starts slow, before becoming a full blooded panicking race against time.
Similarity to the book: Low. Lots of references, but ultimately it feels more like the idea of the book, than the book itself. Maybe you should discuss tactics by writing letters to the other players as you go, though I accept that might increase the run time.
