Bloodsuckers is a highly competitive, card-driven, combat game that pits Vampires against Hunters in a brutal turf war for the town of Blackwood. Choose a side, and fight to the death to control the most locations within Blackwood. Unleash powerful card combos to attack your opponent, but beware, as your strength rises and falls with the time of day. Battle alone or alongside a teammate to recruit the innocent bystanders at each location to join you in your quest for dominance. Win the battles and claim the most locations to declare victory in the fight between the living and the undead!

About the Game
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.
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.
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
