VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE – HERITAGE (Nice Game Publishing, 2 to 4 players, ages 18 and up, 45-90 minutes; $139.95)
Vampire: The Masquerade began its undead life back in 1991 as an RPG created by Mark Rein-Hagen and published by White Wolf as part of their World of Darkness Storytelling System. The key innovation that separated Vampire: The Masquerade from the numerous previous Dracula-inspired games was that players played as vampires rather than vampire hunters. As later generations would learn, you could have more fun playing Spike or Angel than you ever could as Buffy or her band of Slayers.
