I finally got to play Dracula's America after wanting to try it for a long time. In this post, I tell the story that unfolded in a three-way clash in the old (and weird) Wild West. link

This post acts as both a review (talking a bit about the rules) and as a Battle Report / AAR. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Thank you for the high quality AAR. Reading how a game operates as played versus as skimmed through is always more informative. The photos didn't hurt either.

Thanks Captain!

What do you mean when you say that you play your card against your opponent? Through some mechanic, do we override each other? If I draw a card and want to move, can someone's card stop me from moving, or are the cards used for something else? Thanks.

One activation for every TWO minis, rounded up, plus another card if your boss is still on the table.
Different scenarios for each player, and an active civilian shooter are all interesting ideas, but not in the rules! Sounds like some adaptations were used, interested to hear more about them.

Perhaps some adaptations were used, I am not certain. I know Les has run a lot of demo games so he might have done this in the interest of speeding up the game.

I just published another review on Bell of Lost Souls that may explain the cards part slightly better. link
