WizKids has released the 4th Edition print of the classic hidden movement vampire hunt board game, Fury of Draclua!
It is 1898. London has returned to peace for eight years following Count Dracula’s thwarted plans, or so they thought…
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.
Fury of Dracula 4th Edition includes the same great game play as 3rd edition with a new and improved rule book; larger, poker-sized cards; and fully painted figures for Dracula and each of the Hunters. This updated and improved version of this thematic classic is a perfect addition to any board gamer’s shelf!
Each round is broken into two phases: day and night. During both phases, hunters may perform one of many actions such as travelling throughout the map or investigating their present location. Dracula, however, is only able to act at night, when he can lay traps for the hunters, create new servants, or secretly move to a new location. Players continue to traverse the map, featuring a variety of European countries, until either Dracula gains enough influence, or the hunters defeat him.
Will the Hunters take down Dracula before his undead thralls overwhelm Europe, or will he succeed in his insidious mission?

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of Fury of Dracula, a board game of deduction and gothic horror.
Count Dracula has lived Un-Dead for centuries, if not millennia. He drove the Ottomans out of Romania, and became known as Vlad the Impaler for his brutal, bloody method of dispatching his enemies. He witnessed the devastation of the black plague and the innovations of the Industrial Revolution. He has infinite wealth, infinite cunning, and countless bloodthirsty progeny scattered throughout Europe. He is by far the most legendary and most powerful of all vampires. Yet four brave mortals are now determined to find him and permanently destroy him at any cost.
In Fury of Dracula, one player assumes the role of Count Dracula as he stealthily spreads his evil influence throughout Europe. Up to four other players govern the iconic characters of Dr. Abraham Van Helsing, Dr. John Seward, Lord Arthur Godalming, and Mina Harker. By day the hunters travel through Europe, searching for any possible clues about Dracula’s whereabouts. By night, they investigate their present locale and prepare for the upcoming day. And by night, Dracula creates new vampires, lays traps for the hunters, and stealthily moves to a new location. Should any hunters find Dracula, or should the Count find them, they will engage in a brutal fight for their lives.
This edition features all-new art and graphic design that complement the game’s intuitive and highly thematic mechanics. Rounds have been broken into day and night: hunters take actions during both, but Dracula can only act at night. Combat is now more streamlined and decisive. Rumor tokens give Dracula new ways to mislead hunters and extend the reach of his influence. The Count triumphs if he advances his influence track to thirteen; if the hunters can defeat him before that happens, they win the game
