Watch those ebay prices drop like stones after this...

I like the new map artwork, although I think FFG did a bang-up job with their 2007 reprint.

The art is not going to affect my decision whether or not to buy, I'll want to know a lot more about the game and preferably see the rules before deciding.

My personal opinion though is that the new map is hideous.

I wonder who developed the new edition? Also curious if Stephen Hand had any part in this.

Edit: Apparently Kevin Wilson was not involved with this new edition at all.

Looks like the usual FFG graphics extravaganza. IMHO, the map just doesn't excite me (the roads look, odd) and that cover art... shake

I just don't think it needed a new set of rules in the first place, or a version incompatible with the old one - just clarifications and maybe some optional variants for balance.

I wish. His original Games Workshop version was a brilliant design.

Very excited, as the copy I bought on eBay several years ago was missing a few cards and thus sits on my shelf, never played.

....is classic Bela Lugosi Dracula if you ask me. Classic campy horror. Or did I miss something?

Never had the opportunity to play the original GW edition. I've always wanted to simply to see where it all came from, for it's time it must have been fairly innovative.

I think the previous version will climb back up once this one is out as many seem to prefer the art/design better.

Judging by the looks I'm not impressed so far. But the changes to the turn sequence sound kinda neat and most of all.. It's Fury of Dracula after all. Hype level is over 9000.

I wonder what new changes will be able to be applied to the previous version?

One significant change is the time track. Previously, it marked the passage of a single day, with half the track being night. Thematically, the heroes and drac traveled way too far and did way too much for the passing of a single day.

The new time track marks the passage of a week. For one thing, it takes more steps for drac to get his point for the passage of time. But even more importantly, the rhythm of day and night has been changed to every other turn. In the old game, if drac got caught by powerful hunters in the Morning, it was intense as drac would try to survive and hide long enough for night to fall.

It will be interesting to see how this seemingly radical change affects the flow of this classic game.
