In The Hunger, players take the role of vampires vying for control by trying to find a rare eternal rose bloom. The players have until sunrise to feed on humans, pick roses, and return to their castle before their nigh-immortal bodies are burned to cinders by the rays of the unforgiving sun. Neat!

According to the press announcement by Renegade Game Studios:

The Hunger is a race where each player will have to optimize their deck, hunt humans to gain victory points, fulfill secret missions, and eventually acquire a rose and return to the castle before sunrise. The more you hunt, the slower both you and your deck become, which will make it harder and harder to get back before daybreak. Can you become the most notorious vampire? Or will you burn to ashes at sunrise?

This game is geared towards playgroups of between two and six players and will take about an hour's time to play. By preordering this game, buyers will receive an additional six variant game boards for the sake of maximizing replayability!
