Fury of Dracula 3rd. Edition Play By Forum Waiting List
Fury of Dracula (third/fourth edition) is the lastest version of the semi-cooperative game by Fantasy Flight Games (FFG). The previous version (Fury of Dracula (Second Edition)) has been played just over 50 times here on BGG starting in August 2010, with the most recent game concluding in October 2014. This waiting list is created from the page for Fury of Dracula (Second Edition). All games will be played in this forum: Play By Forum
If you are interested in playing a game of FoD by forum, please post your name to one or both of the waiting lists below. General requirements are that you own a copy of FFG's Fury of Dracula (third/fourth edition) and that you can check in at least once or twice a day once your game starts. Only card titles will be distributed as FFG has requested no actual text be posted (thus the reason to own the game). Other specific requirements will be outlined at the start of the game and may change from moderator to moderator. Entry into a game is on a first come, first serve basis. And while we will try to accommodate everyone that wants in a game, we reserve the right to end this at anytime.
The second edition page had two waiting lists, one for playing as Dracula, the other for playing as a hunter. For now there is only one list for 3rd edition, but if these games should prove popular, another can easily be added to this page.
If you are interested in moderating a game, please make note of that below. Obviously, anyone can go and start their own moderated games and set it up however they want.
The official FAQ is available at Fantasy Flight's site, there is also a thread here on BGG with various questions and answers posted by users here, also numerous other threads in the rules forum for the game. For the second edition games an unofficial FAQ was created as a wiki page and it is possible that a similar page may be created for this game going forward. A point to bear in mind in any case is that different moderators are likely to have different views to others and are free to make their own rulings, which they should make clear when starting a game.
How To Add Your Name
- Click on the "Edit" link at the top of this article.
- Add the following two lines to the BOTTOM of the list before the "|}" code):
- | "YOUR USERNAME" || "LIST OF PREFERENCE CODES" || "LIST OF STATUS CODES"
- Replace the text in "CAPS" with your specific information. Do not add the " mark (or just follow the example above you).
- CODES can be found below.
- At the bottom of the webpage, note the "Edit Summary" description, such as "Added Name" or "On Vacation"
- If you are currently playing in a game, you cannot get back on the list for whichever character you're playing unless your current game has reached 4 on the Vampire Track or Dracula is at 5 blood or less. Once that happens, you may get back in line, but please mark "#" and the "game number" behind your name. To be fair to everyone, we ask that you play in only one game at time.
- When a game gets started, a moderator will invite the first several names until a game fills. Once that game starts, those names that accepted will be removed from the list and everyone else will move up. Names will also be removed from the list for too many declined invitations.
- There is a record of the edits on this page so we know who may be cheating!
- NOTE: If you are a new user or not a regular user, please set your GeekMail notifications to forward messages to your regular email address. The list has the potential to clear very fast at random times and you will be bypassed if you do not respond within a timely fashion. Instructions on forwarding GeekMail. When GeekMails are forwarded, the subject line will start with "[BGG]" followed by the subject of the GeekMail. Please make sure your spam filter allows e-mails with "[BGG]" in the subject line.
Since anyone can edit this page, we ask that only moderators update the status of 'other' players. This edit should be limited to removing players who started in your game and those who decline the invite. A first decline gets marked with an * but stays on the list in the same position. A second decline gets ** and is moved to the bottom of the list. A third decline gets deleted from the list.
So an added name should show the user added with a history of that user adding the name. Any deletion should show the moderator name with a larger update. If anything looks suspicious, it will be corrected by a moderator.
Notations on the List
- H - Willing to play any Hunter, not Dracula
- G - Wants to play as Lord Godalming
- S - Wants to play as Dr. Seward
- V - Wants to play as Van Helsing, M.D., D.Ph., D.Litt., etc.
- M - Wants to play as Mina Harker
- D - Wants to play as Dracula
Multiple character preferences may be listed in descending order.
- * - ignored one invitation. If a 2nd invitation is ignored, they will move to the bottom of the list.
- ** - ignored two invitations. If a 3rd invitation is ignored, they will be removed from the list
- # - Currently playing, will be bypassed if still playing when the next game starts
- I - Invited to the listed game; (Ax) means notified as x in the order of alternates, should any of the initial invitees decline.
- R - Means moderating at this moment and not willing to play
- V: XX/XX - XX/XX - Currently on Vacation / Away from the computer; exempt from collecting asterisks during the time stated
Your name may be on each list only once. If you are currently playing in a game and would like to get back in line, please wait until your current game has reached 9 on the Influence track or Dracula is at 5 blood or less.
