I Vant To Bite Your Finger

“I Vant To Bite Your Finger! You play it in the dark! And if Count Dracula bites you, he’ll leave a Vampire mark!” Advertising jingles were ace in the 80s!

This was a bizarre up to 4 player game in which you had to make your way around a board overlooked by a huge caped Count Dracula.

Your counters were white discs with spooky cutouts in them. There was a bat, a spider, a rat and a snake. There was no dice to roll, instead people decide themselves how many spaces they wanted to move. The board only has 15 spaces, so you’d think this was a very quick game to play…

The Dracula, peering out from behind a plastic cape, had a clock on it. However many places you decide to move, you then had to turn the clock that many hours. At random hours on the clock, Draculas cape would swing open and he’d be there, staring at you with his mouth open! So the more moves you risked, the more likely Dracula would pounce.

If you were unlucky enough to have his cape swish open at you, (and have the accompanying spooky noise scare the bejeebers out of you,) you then had to put your finger in his mouth and see if he would bite you!

He had a small cartridge installed behind his head with two small red felt tip points. You placed your finger in his mouth and pressed the switch behind his head. At random times he would bite and others he wouldn’t.

Fabulous game, as long as his teeth didn’t dry out.
