The Duffin Draft Rules

Since the event of the VtES 3rd Edition we started in our local playgroup to play Duffin Draft from time to time. Duffin Draft is a cheap, fast and fun variant of regular drafting. The rules were invented by Joshua Duffin (hence the name). Here are the rules:

A. Drafting
  • Each player provides 1 eleven card booster.
  • Normal booster draft follows, i.e. take 1 pass left.
  • Repeat until out of cards.
  • You must play with all of the cards you draft.
  • If you fail to draft any vampires, you will be ousted quickly.
B. Changes in play
  • Each player has 12 pool.

  • If a player is below hand size and has an empty library, he may use a discard phase action to reshuffle his ashheap into his library (draw up to hand size).

  • A player gets 4 pool for ousting his prey.

  • Each player has unlimited transfers in his influence phase.
Addendum: Double Duffin Draft
  • This is small extension to the "single" Duffin Draft rules. Each player provides two boosters; the first pass is to the left, the second to the right.
