Fury of Dracula -

The dracula player moves in secret, while the other 4 hunters track him down and have to kill him. Dracula has a movement deck which consists of a card for each city on the map. Dracula can only move via boat or road, he won't take the train. When Drac picks a city he places the corresponding card face down onto the movement track and then places an encounter face down on top of the city card.

The movement track consists of the most current location and the last 5 dracula has been to. Whenever a player enters a city, Dracula checks to see if its a city that he has visited in the last 6 rounds (and thus on the movement track) If it is, its turned up and the encounter on the card is then dealt with by the hunter.

As the cards "fall off" the movement track, the cards can be returned into the movement deck, or added to Catacombs, which consists of up to 3 cities, which if visited, can still reveal it's encounter even if dracula hasn't been there in the last 6 turns. Dracula can also add an additional encounter to any city in the catacombs.

The hunters can move by road, train or boat. Some cities are only connected by road, some by train or both. Moving by train requires rolling a special D6. A player can end up moving 3 spaces or lose the rest of their turn. Traveling by road requires no die roll, but is limited to one movement. After entering a city, drac reveals if he has been there and then the player can take an Item or Event Card (depending on the size of the city), heal (and possibly giving dracula more cards) or trading cards with another player in the same city.

Item cards can only be used by the hunters and contain additional weapons. The event cards deck is 1/3 dracula cards and 2/3 hunter cards. The cards are dealt from the bottom of the deck so you never know when taking an event if you'll get the card or if dracula will.

there are 3 types of Event cards, these are Play Immediately, Keep, or an ally. The event cards are important though because they can help reveal locations in the movement track and provide additional combat resources when fighting dracula.

Every 6 rounds starts a new day, half of each day is sunlight and half is night. During the night dracula is harder to kill. The map is also divided. Eastern europe gives dracula an advantage in combat as well and is harder to move through.
