Crave is a new strategic deck building game you can really sink your teeth into, featuring modern day hipster vampires versus vampire hunters. You'll battle your opponent and use your influence to bring new characters, spells, actions, and items to your side. Each game is unique based upon what you see available to acquire, in addition to the varying paths your opponent may take.

Crave is a fast playing, competitive game for 2 players per set, playable for up to 6 players at a time. You represent either Vampires or Vampire Hunters, and can acquire new characters exclusive to your side, as well as other factions available to either party.

Each turn, spend your influence to gain new cards which make your deck more powerful. Equip items to characters, and create special combinations unique to your side, whether you are a vampire or vampire hunter. Use patrols to block your opponent, and poison their deck with wolfsbane and other plants. Win by draining your opponent's health before they do the same to you in your battle to survive.

The Plague Doctors are posing as Villagers too, so who do you trust? Exile a new player each day, but beware, as new infections plague your village each night.
