4.0 out of 5 stars A great game with minor component issues 27 Oct 2010
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
What is this game about?
You play an eclectic group of explorers who venture inside a spooky house. As you enter the creepy home, the lights go out and the front door locks. You then explore the unknown finding horror, humour and helpful items. Until...the betrayal occurs!!!

Straight off view of the game:
What a fantastic game!

Why would you enjoy this game?
If you like horror, comedy, monsters, exploration, surprise, randomness, co-operation, mystery, betrayal, and a simple core mechanic.

Summary of the first play of the game:
What other game can you play and have to run through a house pursued by tentacle suckers while you search for the creatures basement based head; discover you're the heir of an ancient throne and be hunted by poison blade wielding assassins who leap out from behind curtains; have a alien spaceship crash into the house and the little green man abduct the group through mind control; and finally summon a ghost and lay it rest?!

Play time:
All of our games, which were our very first, took less than 1 hour to play, while most only took about 30 minutes.

Value for money:
Lots and lots of tokens! If you love tokens, you'll love this game. If you hate organising the tiny little things then prepare to lose 1 die of sanity points...
The playing pieces for this game are...not great. They look a little...wrong. Now if you're feeling generous you could say this contributes to the feel of the game, but I just see poor figures.
I would say for 40 this game is good value - if the feel of a game is more important to than the quality of the components.

Problems with the game:
The aforementioned playing pieces obviously. The talk of warped cardboard is entirely accurate.

Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
this is lots & lots of fun, BUT... there is a problem with the print run on the game, all the room tiles & tokens
warp a lot and it is almost unplayable. this is common knowledge on board game geek. one simple email to avalon hill (the makers) and they send you out free replacement board quickly, that doesnt warp :)

5.0 out of 5 stars A great thematic game 28 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
"Betrayal at House on the Hill" is a thematic board game where 3+ players enter a haunted house and... well, something happens.

Gameplay starts with each player picking a character. These character having starting stats - Speed, Strength, Knowledge and Sanity - which can be changed by events throughout the game. If any of these stats are reduced to 0, that player dies.

The players take turns exploring the house - moving as many tiles as their Speed stat allows them to. As they enter a room, the player draws a card from the deck and adds it to the house. Some rooms hold events which may benefit the player, or impede on their progress.

Some of the rooms have a crow tile. When this appears, the player must roll six dice. If at any point the number rolled is less than the amount of crows in play, an event called the haunt begins. This is a good mechanic as it prevents the haunt coming too early if the players are taking the game slow.

The haunt is the selling point of the game. When it occurs, anything could happen. One player could become a madman, trying to kill the other players. Or maybe a giant blob may begin to consume the house, leaving the players to fight it - or be devoured. Perhaps all the players will be shrunk down and hunted by cats, or the house lifted up by an eagle... with only one parachute left inside.

Many of the haunts are samey, standard horror plots: one character has lured the others into the house in order to kill them for [insert reason here]. There are 50 of these haunts, so there's plenty that could happen, but several feel a bit dry and uninspired.

You don't decide the haunt; the game decides, based on what tile the player who revealed the haunt is on, and what card they picked up as a result.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite game 18 May 2012
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is my favourite ever board game. Its amazingly simple to play, no complicated rules to learn. You can learn it as you play. It also has really good re-play value, there are 50 different combinations of 'haunts' that can happen, and because each time different tiles will come out in a different order and different things will happen, each game is different. we played it four times over 2 days and none of the games turned out the same. The atmosphere of the game is really good fun as well, you each play an 'architypal' character from a horror movie (a jock, a priest, a little girl, a fortune teller...) and explore a haunted house. I've played it with children and adults and both have really loved it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Family Fun 7 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase
Who needs computer games with this great board game. Hundreds of differing endings & game play, different 'board' layout every game. There is no board until the game starts and each player lays a room segment as they play. It is a very absorbing game for all ages over 10yrs.
My daughter, who is 34 & her husband (37yrs), myself (68yrs)my wife (??yrs) and grandsons 13 & 10 played this virtually non-stop for most of Boxing Day and went back to it again over the Xmas Hols. Suits all age groups.

My only grip is that the card panels are rather flimsy and some of the additional card peices are rather small, that stopped the 5* award.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet game
Excellent game, the only thing keeping it from 5/5 is that the different trackers are extremely volatile and fall off with little to no force
