Betrayal at House on the Hill
My Favorite Board Game is a Disaster and I Don't Care
It’s not a deck builder, 4X, or area control game that requires to have preexisting knowledge of the game. Betrayal is a simple game that welcomes players of every skill level and age (pending thematic content) for a night of pulp horror stories, murder, and a lot of laughs. It’s certainly not the ideal game for everyone, especially those in search of heated competition, but it does allow anyone to join which immediately makes it a winner in my book

Betrayal at House on the Hill: Third Edition review – Horror board game’s greatest and messiest hits
ded, the game still has its fair share of duds. The handful of haunts I experienced firsthand while writing this review were fairly average. None of them have been as miserably simple as the ‘kill these spiders’ kind - though there are a few of those featured in Third Edition - but they’ve not reached the kind of creative heights found in the Widow’s Walk expansion released for Betrayal’s previous edition

The Quacks of Quedlinburg: The Alchemists Expansion Review
Final Thoughts:. While I don’t consider The Alchemists an essential expansion for The Quacks of Quedlinburg, I do think it adds enough interesting decisions and fun mechanics to recommend it as a purchase. I will qualify this opinion by saying this isn’t the type of expansion that makes sense to throw into early plays of the game or if it’s being taught to new players

Betrayal at House on the Hill
Hasbro teases Betrayal at House on the Hill: 3rd Edition
The second edition was supposed to help clean up the many, many errors and errata in the first edition. 2016 then brought us the first expansion, Widow’s Walk. However, both the second edition and the expansion still had issues with errors and production issues as well (like the health trackers)

Fun New Game
Rating: 4.5 Playing this game was simple and fun, and there are different variations that can be played with added difficulty levels. I really enjoyed learning how to play, game play, and the suspense of whether or not the pot was going to "explode" at any moment. The only reason for the 1/2 star of...

Betrayal at House on the Hill
Great Game, Poor Quality
I would like to start by saying that Betrayal is one of my all time favorite games. If I'm rating this based on the overall gameplay, I would give it a 4/5 stars. Only 4 stars because, as many other reviewers have mentioned, there are many haunts that are lacking details that can make the gameplay r...
