Betrayal at House on the Hill
Betrayal At House On The Hill Review - The Thoughtful Gamer
Betrayal at House on the Hill, from any level-headed perspective, is a bad game. It’s very old-school in its design, with tons of dice rolling, character stats, and random events. It frequently completely falls apart when it should be getting interesting

Betrayal at House on the Hill
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

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)

The Quest for El Dorado Review (featuring Heroes & Hexes Expansion) | Gameosity
Heroes & Hexes also adds new terrain tiles to the game, greatly increasing the variety of maps you can race through!. Andrew: Like I said, more stuff! I love what Heroes & Hexes adds to The Quest for El Dorado. The base game is sublime in its simplicity, but I’m glad to see that there are more options that you can fold into your experience, if that’s what you want!

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

The Quest for El Dorado
Great game for adults and older kids with unlimited play options!
This is a really fun game, best for adults and older kids! I like how, because of being able to rearrange the board pieces, there are oodles of possibilities for its layout, so one could go a long time before needing to play the game exactly the same way! It took a lot of thought to design this game...

Betrayal at House on the Hill
Great Game! Lots of Possibilities, Maybe not for Everyone.
So this is likely my favorite board game. I bought a backup I like it so much. The playability is great as you build the house randomly and different every game. It takes a few games to get used to the flow, but when you do its pretty straightforward. It's usually a long game..1h+. For kids i just c...
