I would really like FFG to reprint Fury Of Dracula because I'd love to play it but what are some other one vs all games that are in print and available? I'd love to find some good ones to play with my group. Thanks.

The Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game series of games are 1 vs many (sometimes it's 2 vs all such as 6 player is 2 vs 4). I enjoy these games for some fun dice chucking.

I have Letters from Whitechapel but haven't had a chance to play it yet. One player is Jack the Ripper and the others are the constables trying to arrest him. It's somewhat similar to Fury of Dracula with hidden movement and trying to figure out where Jack is.

Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) is also one vs many with the many being a party of adventurers and the one being the bad guy. I haven't played it but I've heard good things and I keep debating if I should pick it up or not

Thanks guys. They all seem good. Yeah I haven't pulled the trigger on Descent yet because of the price mainly. I know you get a lot but I don't want to drop that much on a game that might not see a lot of play.

This. And Doom: The Boardgame.

Also Betrayal at House on the Hill once The Haunt has begun.

Then there are "hidden role" games like Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game and Shadows over Camelot and the "Overlord" variant for Castle Panic....

Panic Station starts as a 1 vs. many and ends in many vs. many or many vs. 1.

+1 letters from whitechappel. It is a really good game with 4/5/6 players.

+1 Star Wars: Imperial Assault or Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) - take your preferred theme.
+1 Letters from Whitechapel

Tragedy Looper is a fascinating deduction-based all v. one game.

+1 Mansions of Madness

Oh and about Tragedy Looper. This game freaks me out. I feel I'm a pretty logical guy, skilled in deduction, but this game screws up my brain every time. That being said, it's great fun even if I feel I'm been mentally bushwacked.

Really, any Dungeon Crawl came that is not specifically Co-op is going to be "one versus all" but if I was to think of something similar to the rest of the responses above, I would think Scotland Yard, which is a lot like Letters From Whitechapel, where one player is the fugitive and the rest are officers trying to chase him down.

In the chase genre, games like Letters from Whitechapel, Fury of Dracula, and Garibaldi: The Escape (which hasn't been mentioned before) are all roughly the same game with varying levels of chrome. Scotland Yard, the version with basically 0 chrome, is still excellent. Of course, if the theme or mechanics of one or another appeals to you more, go for that one, but don't underestimate the classic.

The problem in the equation is people. Eliminate that, everything works.

Fortress America

It's only 1 vs. 3 but it's a cool game. American player gets to shout "Wolverines!" every time he nails a Ruski unit.

You might want to check out Shadows over Camelot and/or Dead of Winter: A Crossroads Game...each of these games has the possibility of having a traitor (SoC usually has a traitor, DoW is closer to 50/50) so some sessions will not be one vs all...but that adds another dynamic as you won't know if there's a traitor present or not...

Legendary Encounters can be played with a traitor, too. And it also gives one player the chance to play as an alien, when he gives birth!
