Every turn, players pass one card face down to Renfield. Humans hope to play groups of incantations to cast rituals, while the vampire tries to stop the incantations and play bites.

If Dawn was revealed on the clock, the person with the Ancestral Stake may use it to try and kill the Vampire. Choose carefully though, because killing the wrong person will end the game in a loss. …
