is there enough of a difference between this and Fury Of Dracula to variant getting it? I bought Fury and the group loves it and the hidden movement thing so I was looking at getting this also. Worth it?

I was just asking myself this, but the other way around.

It is nothing like Fury of Dracula other than some similarity of play theme (a blind movement game) and an all vs. 1.

This game has more in common with Clue: The Great Museum Caper (mechanically) and even then is different enough to warrant having both. Or all three, which I do.

It seems pretty different in many of the mechanics, and another big difference is the time to play.

We can usually get through a 3 player version of Specter Ops in just about 1 - 1.5 hours, whereas FoD seems to take a good bit more than that.

This game is quite a bit different than Fury of Dracula.

Just look at the watch it played video for a gameplay overview.

I have not played Specter Ops, but Joel Eddy said in his Drive Thru Review of Fury of Dracula that Fury has pretty much replaced Specter Ops for him, and he loves Specter Ops.

Except he said FoD probably replaced SO, and SO probably still has place in his collection...

And this game has different game modes

I see my friends burning their brains with SO I see no reason to get FoD to make hidden movement overstays its welcome.

With Luck I will be playing FoD next week. Eagerly waiting to try it. I love Specter Ops but have a feeling that I will like FoD even more.

They both look different enough to enjoy having both games..
