In Fury of Dracula, one player is Count Dracula secretly traveling the European countries, turning humans into vampires with his gruesome bite and laying deadly traps for those hunting him. The Count's opponents are the Hunters who must find the bloodthirsty villain and destroy him before his undead thralls claim the night as their own. This WizKids print of the classic hidden movement vampire hunt includes a new and improved rule book, larger, poker-sized cards and fully painted figures for Dracula and each of the Hunters
Fury of Dracula features all-new art and graphic design crafted to complement the game's intuitive, thematic mechanisms. Rounds are now broken into day and night, with hunters taking actions during both, while Dracula can act only at night. Combat is now more streamlined and decisive, and new rumor tokens allow Dracula to mislead hunters and extend the terrible reach of his influence. Count Dracula triumphs if he advances his influence track to thirteen; if the hunters can defeat him before then, they save the continent of Europe and win the game.
The fourth edition of Fury of Dracula contains pre-painted miniatures instead of unpainted figures, a different rulebook, and different card sizes.
