Once again, this isn't a COMPLETE rules explanation (we forgot to mention that Dracula can't be found in sea spaces and doesn't place encounter cards, for a start), but it should certainly give everyone a ruddy good grasp of the game before you get stuck into the dirty business of questions and manuals.
Operator: Sir, the site was never built for this! She's going to buckle under the pressure!
Quinns: There's no turning back now. We'd never make it. The only way out... is through.
Last week we enjoyed exclusive access to scalding-hot 2016 Fantasy Flight epic Star Wars: Rebellion, and on this podcast we want to tell you all about the fun we had with it. But that's not all! We also discuss our time with the wonderful new edition of Fury of Dracula, return to Star Wars: Armada and Quinns has sat down with Jeff Cannata of the DLC Podcast for a (well signposted) spoiler-ridden chat about Pandemic Legacy.
That's more amazing board games than is wholly decent. But you deserve it.
In Fury of Dracula you undertake their perilous quest, hunting Dracula across Europe and battling him wherever he is revealed. Or you take on the role of the legendary Count Dracula himself as he seeks to thwart these pursuers and plunge the entire continent into an unrelenting and evil darkness.
Quinns: Paul, are you excited about the new edition of Fury of Dracula? Fantasy Flight’s gothic hidden movement game, originally from Games Workshop back in the distant past, has been out of print for so long now that it’s almost passed into legend. Now and then, copies surface online with ridiculous three-figure price tags, but they’re as rare as hen’s teeth.
Paul: As rare as vampire fangs! Except those fangs aren’t rare any more. Dracula’s back! He’s back in style, too, with a glossier cape, a smoother style and even an improved map of Europe. I’m glad to see Dracula back because the boy done good.
Why, they're all featured in our GEN CON SPECIAL EPISODE, of course!
Exposure to this special may create a burning desire for more Gen Con Specials. If this occurs, go and watch last year's Gen Con Special again.
It's been a FANTASTIC news week, though! You must go take a look. Fantasy Flight announced a new edition of Fury of Dracula! Bezier Games announced One Night Ultimate Vampire! There's an amazing article about the English-language reimagining of Mysterium, and we learn about one of board games' most iconic covers.
Enjoy, everybody! And try not to make too much of a mess...
