Fun memory variant. Bluffing plays a large part of the strategy. Dracula and Dr Van Helsing are different but balanced.

Kleine Schachtel, großartiges Spiel: Memory, Bluff, vorausschauendes Handeln, Ärgern, aber vor allem: Spannung bei toller Spielatmosphäre. Mein persönliches 2-Personen-Spiele Highlight seit Jahren. Und das von meiner Frau auch!

My favorite two-player game so far. The look and atmosphere are great, the duel between Dracula and Van Helsing a pure pleasure. I think strategy and tactic are perfectly balanced here, full of bluffing, memorizing, planning, plotting and tension. I could play it over and over!
(the number of plays here doesn't represent the actual play number, I need a copy of it again!)

An interesting mix of strategies that thankfully doesn't include any dice. Nice pieces, decent artwork, and well-integrated Dracula theme of this seemingly simple game keep me coming back for more. One of my favorite little two-player games.

One of the best two-player games I have tried, Dracula brilliantly combines its hunt-search-bluff mechanics with the world of Dracula's London. The card art, board and pieces are very good, and the game's only failing is the error in the rules (telling you to place cards face up instead of face down). So, turn down the lights, put on a flickering fire, and go seeking victims or the crypts of the Count.

I love this game! Unfortunately, this game didn't get many good reviews at the time it came out.
Almost all players seemed to agree upon the fact that it is easier to win whilst playing with Van Helsing rather then Dracula. Me myself too, thought it was a somewhat unbalanced 2 player game, favouring the Van Helsing player. But I was so taken by the lovely design and theme that I wouldn't give up on it. I insisted in always playing as Dracula, and finally I got the hang of it. It isn't unbalanced... you just have to play the game differently when playing D. This game is, above all, a memory game, and a fantastic one at that. Try it out enough and you'll see eventually My favourite game in the Kosmos 2-players series together with Spaceship Catan!

- Strong theme
- Defying the test of time! 5+ years and I still can't give it a pass!

Dracula is one of my new favorites. A fun 2 player game. Multiple ways to win and loose. This game can easily end before you know it! I love it!

Such a good game! Such a nice package of components that work perfectly together. This has become my favorite game to play with my grandson Josh. After 11 plays it just continues to entertain, so I've bumped my rating up from 8 to 9.

Fun fun fun!! Strategic enough to be a challenge, and short enough to play multiple rounds. A great, short, two player game.

Surprisingly this went under most peoples radar, which is a shame as it's very Reminiscent of Mr. Jack.

Players try to find a set of five cards, be it on the board, in hand, or a combination of hand/captured. The key points being bluffing, and memory.

A wonderful mix of bluff, memory and subtle strategy. The fact that you play your action card after your turn leads to some interesting decisions.

One of my favorite games to play with my 6 year old (2011) daughter. We both love it! Fantastic artwork on the cards and board, nice wooden components too. Good value. Easy and fast to set up, and very simple to play. Nice bluffing element. Highly recommended.

Very good 2 player game. You want to deceive your opponent and bluff him/her and that's fun. If you like the theme, and don't mind the memory aspect of the game, I'd recommend it. Excelent game in a small box!

Very good 2 players' game. Memory & Bluff system, but there's more than this in the game - Lots of tension and thrill here.. also good components and illustration.

A well-themed, enjoyable two-player game. A lot of options for the players to choose from; mostly memory-driven; a good bit of suspense. One of the best of the 2-player series.

Yes, memory is a big part of this game but so is bluffing. I had a great time tricking my wife into racing for certain cards only to find out they were something else after she got there. Good fun with a lot of subtle strategy.

Very fun tactical game. Yes, there is luck, but the action cards you hold should dictate how much risk you are willing to take on a given turn. Dracula is a very welcome change of pace from Lost Cities, Balloon Cup, and others in the Kosmos 2-player line.
