Fury of Dracula is one of my favorite games. How does this compare? I am guessing simple, less atmosphere, more abstract?

Very nice. But seriously folks.....

It's the same basic concept, but far more streamlined and hunt focused instead of hunt and fight. This game has no combat or equipment or encounters. Just move and search for the investigators, evade for Jack.

But don't take that to mean it's dull. I like it. It's tight and suspenseful and doesn't feel bogged down like FoD can sometimes get. (Though I like it too...)

I'd also say that Letters is better as a 2-player than FoD. In fact, I won't play Letters now as multi-player (there's just not enough for each individual inspector to do during the course of the game). However, as a 2-player game it's a wonderful gaming experience.

I would not play Letters as multiplayer unless enhancing it with house rules. Also, FoD has a lot of chrome with the cards and you can easily deduce where is Dracula but you must prepare to fight with him. In Letters deducing where is Jack is what's the game's about.

I haven't played too much Fury.....but I think it depends whether you enjoy the combat a lot. For me..I didn't think it was much fun.

The thing I do like is that you reveal the age of the clue. We sometimes think about adding that to LfW, that once a night you can request the turn number for a found clue. But maybe it is too powerful!

It is a great two player game. Not tried with more. I think it could work well with a team of two cops, to bounce ideas and strategy off, but I agree that with more police players the game would probably be a bit dull or domineered by one player
