Board Games with Scott - Video about The Fury of Dracula
The Fury of Dracula is a deduction/roleplaying game where one player is Dracula attempting to hide and ambush the other players, who form a team.

It was requested here on BoardGameGeek, so now, I deliver.

This week, Board Games with Scott is an video exploration of The Fury of Dracula, a 2006 remake of an 1987 Games Workshop board game (back when they made a line of great boardgames).



You can view the episode at

http://www.boardgameswithscott.com/?p=29

Note - there's also an audio-only version at the above link.


Next week, it's the German dice-fest, Um Krone und Konig. After that, it's the Poker Chip show!

I didn't realise that the first minute of a video could be both excellent and awful all in one

Excellent as always Scott - but you know if you post it on the geek the geeks are going to see the errors :)

You used the wrong token for the day advance timer. That one is used for the garlic and one other card. The day token is the one that is small, round and looks like a waning/waxing moon.

I always enjoy watching - thanks for doing these...

Thanks Scott - I really enjoyed the episode. Although, you've got me a little confused on card play during combat. I thought you only had to keep the last card played on the table you're video implied otherwise. I'm off to check my rule book now. Good job!

That's right - only the last card on the table. Could you tell me where I implied otherwise so I can see about fixing it?

Thanks!

I didn't get that impression from your video at all, even though you didn't go through multiple rounds of combat you only demonstrated leaving the last card on the table for the next round of combat.

Great review, the video adds a lot.


But...FURRY of Dracula?!



As Vlad would say...


"BLAH! BLAH!"

I was specifically watching to see what you did with the first card you played on the table during combat when you start to "play" the third card.

I seem to recall that you do mention that the 1st card cannot be played when you play round two. You never pick up the 1st card off of the table nor do you mention that it is replayable.

I was specifically looking for this since, at first, we didn't allow any card to be replayed. Now we play the "right" way but I believe that the combat is better when you can't repeat the cards EVER during combat (it introduces more diversity of play and makes you really plan when to make your "strike" move).

Anyway, since all of the cards remained on the table I think it sort of implied that they all stayed on the table during combat. However, YMMV.

Regardless - great vblog. I really liked it. Thanks.

I would be happy to have these files on Bit Torrent, but I don’t have a static IP at home in order to seed the files. If there’s someone out there who would be willing to seed & track BT files for the HQ Board Games with Scott, get in touch with me. (You’d get to see the show before everyone else!)


Just want to make you aware of a small falicy here. While the tracker needs to be fairly static. Seeds are simply clients that happen to have the full copy of a file. There's a few free trackers out there, you could find some info on http://www.mininova.org/

Another point of interest. Very high quality 1-hour (45 min with commcials edited out) TV shows are about 350MB. These are not .MOV files but .AVI files. You could cut your file size in half if you used the same encoding. I think it's XviD.

In the past on previous projects, I've made various forms of AVI files using different incarnations of DivX and Xvid over the last few years.

The result is that I have a folder full of files, and I don't have one player that can play them all. Even the excellent VLC media player chokes on some of them, showing only the audio, and I have to load up an older player to watch those. I don't have confidence in the still-developing open standards of the XVid/Dvix community to take the time and create yet_one_more_verion of these files becuase of these experiences (I'm already creating 4 versions of each episode...)

Well, I don't want to create confusion (although I think I'll leave the hourglass as the time marker; what was I thinking? )


I changed the audio a bit and added some text overlays to make it more clear. The new versions should now be in place.

Thanks for catching this! Go Team BGG!

Great episode. I've downloaded and read the rules, but your demo helped bring it all together.

Heh, that cracked me up.

I think you are doing a great job taking the time to do these. I have seen about half of them and have enjoyed them. I have made a (non) buying decision based on one of your videos. I was intrigued by the game but after your video could tell that the game just wasn't for me. Thanks Scott!

Fun as always Scott. Keep up the good work.

From what I remember of your review, it seemed like combat would be over in three turns in the day because Dracula only had three action cards and you never picked up the first combat action card or said you could ever do so.

Other than that, great job!

Funny...Usually a review from Scott makes me excited to play a game. I felt just the opposite after watching this one...

Well, the goal is to give you enough information to let you make your own decision.. that's why I focus on the explanation and the teaching rather than the review, since tastes vary so much.

Looks like I did my job.

Scott-

I also wanted to thank you for the excellent video reviews you've been doing. I'm probably going to purchase Santiago based on your review. I haven't watched this one yet, but I've played the game once and found it "lacking." I'm interested to see what you rate it. Keep'em coming!

I don't mind Dracula having to run. I loved Scotland Yard growing up and this sounds really really cool!

Thanks for another excellent video Scott! laugh

Is PBS going to have you back again soon? Wits & Wagers looks pretty fun too!
