This week, both The Fury of Dracula and Fury of Dracula, the horror hunt game from Games Workshop and Fantasy Flight. Pull up a comfy chair, it’s a long one. Because of that, I’ve added times to the show notes so you can skip around a bit, if you want.

  • (02:13) – Random Signal promo
  • (03:13) – Intro to both versions

(The) Fury of Dracula Links:

Final Thoughts:
I forgot to mention that Fury of Dracula was published in 2006, and that Kevin Wilson was in charge of the revision, though Steven Hand still receives the primary design credit. There is also an errata/FAQ available on the Fantasy Flight site, which I highly recommend getting.

Also, most of the material for The Fury of Dracula is scanned in on the BGG site, so check it out if you want to see the original look. You can also get it off auction sites — recent prices range from $25-$35.

And finally it’s not Scott on Boardgames, it’s Board Games with Scott. Sorry, Scott.

Jim,

Enjoyed the show a great deal. We’re still planning on doing a BGB show on the whole old GW series and Fury is one of the few I still own so we’ll cover some of the same ground. However, I really appreciated your perspective on the new version and the design choices they made (particularly on the ‘Dracula can no longer cheat’ bit).

Keep up the great work. As I’ve said before, the testament to the quality of your show is that I will listen even if the game doesn’t interest me (and in some cases, like Barbarian Prince, it changes my mind).

Let me just please ask everyone to ignore my previous comment. Hadn’t quite realized how horribly I had been typing. I was, indeed, exhausted. Sorry *blush*. What I meant to say, was something along ER Burgess’ line of thought…

Anyway.

Cheers!

All things considered, I think there’s a huge audience for what my nearsighted eyes first thought this podcast was on; the Furry of Dracula! hehehe…
