About the Game

  • Standing game board shows the town locations and who controls them as well as what time of day it is for ability strength tracking

    The board tracks the time of day and the location in play. Each location features a rotatable dial indicating its current status. The clock dial in the bottom middle is used to track the time of day, as well as player turns.

    The Vampire and Hunter decks contain powerful attacks and ability combinations. Attack, Impact, Strike and Dodge cards are just some of the tools players will use.

  • Character cards in Bloodsuckers feature a 3 side display for when a character is a bystander, a vampire, or a hunter

    The unique "3-sided" card design uses the back of the card to track the progress of the battle while the front shows characters as either Hunter or Vampire.

  • Adrenaline and blood tokens, attack counters, and action tokens for Bloodsuckers

    Action tokens, attack counters, blood tokens, and adrenaline tokens help you keep track of your progress in battle.

Dad’s Gaming Addiction says "Bloodsuckers is the vampire vs. hunter game that I’ve always wanted. I’ve enjoyed playing games like Dracula, but they tend to ignore or lack that ‘player versus player’ feeling. . . . Deep and highly thematic, Bloodsuckers is a must for any vampire/vampire hunter or board game enthusiast." 9/10

Matthew McCale on BGG says, "Over all [sic] I am very happy with this game and I don’t see that changing anytime soon."
