I picked up a copy of this game at BGG.con last year for five bucks. It’s a neat little microgame where you play as the characters from Dracula and have to wander the hills of Romania, searching for the vampire’s coffins. When they are all destroyed, you flip the map to its other side, which shows the inside of Dracula’s castle, and hunt down the vampire himself.
It’s a pretty damn tough game and, like a lot of games of the time, is very much luck-based. But it was worth it for the Otus artwork.
Yeah, not a great game, but oh, that Otus cover!
