Played without cheating. Attempt 1: killed climbing the gate at the start. Attempt 2: Ensnared by the skeleton chair. Attempt 3: Slain by the bat horde. Attempt 4: Gem teleportation; death by Hell-Hound, (I knew my greedy curiosity would be a bad idea at this point.) Attempt 5: Slain by the Vampire Lord. Attempt 6: Success. His reign of terror is over and I am ready for my next adventure!
Good going! I wish I hadn't trown away my notes, I could give some stats. Though I never take such elaborate notes to begin with, so it wouldn't be a thorough comparison. It's different if you take notes for a review or for a playthrough... You don't focus on the same stuff. In any case: Cheers!

Someone in the other thread asked for a solution for Crypt of the Vampire. I'm sure that no one needs a solution for this book if one is willing to make a handful of attempts, but, for the record, here is what I consider to be the easiest winning path. There is no chance of failure if you follow this solution, but it is the most boring way possible to win (i.e. there are many more interesting ways to win). This solution is for the 2013 revised edition by Fabled Land Publishing. I don't know if it works for the original Golden Dragon version.
