About this project
"A Vampire Hunter doesn't leave another Vampire Hunter behind"
Vampire Hunters is a cooperative board game for 1-4 players.
Take the role of a hunter against vampires!
Players must work together to complete 10 different missions, with 10 different maps (made using the included modular maps tiles), using many powerful weapons and their special abilities.
Stay together to increase your attack and defense strength, be precise, be strong, but most of all be fast, because the night is coming.
In Vampire Hunters, each player is always active during the game, thanks to the innovative system of artificial intelligence that controls the vampires.
When a hunter fights against an enemy and loses the match, this enemy deals a wound and moves to the next nearest hunter, who will immediately have to fight!
In Vampire Hunters, all the hunters will have to fight even if it's not their turn. "YOU WILL ALWAYS BE IN THE GAME!"
Vampire Hunters the board game, uses the "The Attack Line" fighting system. With the attack line system, you'll feel the panic caused by a vampire running toward you, ready to feast on your blood.
The "attack line" adds reality to each combat by combining panic level and aiming-accuracy according to the distance from the vampire.

Dark Gate Games is a company based in New York. We are a creative team of talented sculptors, writers, and 2d/3d artists, who work together to bring to life exciting board games. The whole amount of detailed figures, cards, and tiles have been designed by amazing artists in the USA, Italy and several other European and African countries. Vampire Hunters has been founded by Filippo Chirico. Driven by his lifelong love for vampires and creatures of the night, he created a game where he could kill them all! The first alpha version of Vampire Hunters came to life about two years ago. Quite immediately our team realized its potential. Action, strategy and numerous variables made each game so different from the other. During these two years we have worked together basically everyday. We have played hundreds and hundreds of times; developed new versions, new mechanics, more strategy and more reality. Today we are really proud when we look back and excited when we look forth. We can’t wait to share with you the same fun we have been having while playing Vampire Hunters.
We are gamers. We have created this game so that we would enjoy something really fun to play. We wanted something that provided us with what we always wanted from a board game. Now we have it and it is amazing. We have covered part of the cost of graphic design and art. However, in order for us to share it with all the other gamers we need to produce it and Kickstarter is the perfect platform for this to happen. We really hope many of you gamers will back Vampire Hunters for this game we think deserves to be on your table too.
In order to be fair to all our backers we will apply the exact shipping costs after the campaign on Kickstarter is over, when able to take into account all the unlocked stretch goals and optional purchases. The shipping cost may change according to the country Vampire Hunters has to be delivered to. The estimated delivery will be approximately 7 months from the ending of the campaign on kickstarter which, for most countries, is likely to be about 6 months before the retail version is issued. As a rough estimate, the game will cost about $10 - $15 to ship in the USA and to Hong Kong, about $25 to Australia, about $15-$20 in the EU and Canada.
The numbers above are to be considered subject to variations; likely to a lower rate.
Risks and challenges
We have worked hard, together, every day, for more than a year not only to create a game that would deliver pure fun and constant entertainment. Also, in order to limit the number of upcoming challenges and unforeseen mishaps we have worked very keenly to find the smoothest and most reliable high quality production and worldwide distribution process.
The estimated delivery for Vampire Hunters is approximately 7 months from the ending of the campaign on kickstarter. Our team is prepared to make sure the production process will respect the promised high quality standard and also act immediately to push and quickly overcome production, customs and shipping delays. Vampire Hunters will be knocking on your door as soon as possible and if for some cataclysmic reason it can’t be delivered at all, then we will promptly refund your pledge, including fees.
