The leader of the coven is dead and the quest is on to be the vampire who adds the most to their bloodline and becomes the new leader. BloodLust is a fast playing card game for 2 to 10 players using the vampire genre. Beautiful cards, rules, and board bring the game to life.
Players add to their bloodline by staying out on the hunt, but the longer you stay out the greater the possibility of daylight; if you're out when the sun comes up then you could lose it all. Use your powers to best your opponents, or to help them, your choice.
Each player takes a character card which has variable powers. Cards are flipped from the play deck one at a time. The possibilities are a daylight card, which raises the possibility of sunrise; a card which increases a character's bloodline; a slayer card, which injures the character or reduces the bloodline; etc. Before each card flip players must decide whether to stay on the hunt with the possibility of additional increase or loss to their bloodline, or to get out and hold their bloodline gains for that round. If players stay in and a daylight card is drawn that brings the sun up and any players still in the round lose all of their gains for that round. A number of rounds are played depending on the number of players. Players can play their powers and, depending on the situation, help or hurt themselves or other players.
The game plays in 30-60 minutes. It includes a box, mounted board, rules, cards, and counters.
