    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.

    Having got this the other day (via the EXCELLENT Amazon locker system) me and a couple of friends sat down to play this for the first time last night and needless to say, we had a great time.

    This is a relatively straight forward game which would be easily accessible to a large number of people. Whilst me and my friends play quite a games (from the family friendly such as cash and guns and camel up through to the pure awesomeness that is twilight imperium) this is a game that I would feel comfortable bringing to the table to play with people who haven't played much beyond the classic games such as monopoly and cluedo.

    The game itself is quick to set up (we took less than 10 minutes) and just as quick to get in to. The rules are pretty self explanatory and definitely suit the game and also aren't overly complicated. The game starts with all the players exploring the house which is randomly generated by tiles as they go. The explorers discover new rooms, complete events, gather items and hopefully upgrade their character before a haunt is triggered.

    The haunt, for me, is the selling point of this game. Once the haunt hits, the whole game flips from an exploration game to a battle for survival. One played (in our game) became a betrayer, who was out to kill the others via a brilliant horror movie staple - which was executed fantastically. The only point i'd raise here is that the player who is the betrayer has to go off and read a special rules book with rules for each haunt on their own. For most players this wont be an issue at all, but there is a chance younger players or even some adults may not fully understand these and they can't really discuss them with the other players as most of this information is kept secret.

    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 :)

    I only recently stumbled into the world of untraditional board games, I'm so glad I did and only wish I had done it sooner. Cludo, Monopoly, Cranium, these all pale now in comparison, don't get me wrong, they are still great in their own ways but Betrayal just offers a much more rewarding and satisfying experience for me.

    I introduced this to my friends as a new game which at that point I hadn't even played, we went through and set-up as we read over the basic rules and tried to follow as much as we could before we ultimately decided to just play and see how we get on. Now at first it all seemed a bit daunting with all the pieces and the amount of rules presented but in no time at all we were laughing and having a great time.

    We would often need to refer back to the rule book especially on the first play through but by the end of the first game everyone quickly said lets go again! never once did we feel lost and by the second game we were flying through, even my friends who don't play board games got really into it and said it was awesome I have one friend who wont stop bugging me on when we are all playing it next!

    Well worth the purchase and down as my current favourite board game, its not too daunting and the rules are easy to follow, if someone like me can follow it then anyone should be fine, I'm now looking at all kinds of different board games and have turned into quite the board game geek!
