From the Manufacturer

The creak of footsteps on the stairs, the smell of something foul and dead, the feel of something crawling down your back – this and more can be found in the exciting refresh of the Avalon Hill favorite Betrayal at House on the Hill. This fun and suspenseful game is a new experience almost every time you play – you and your friends explore “that creepy old place on the hill” until enough mystic misadventures happen that one of the players turns on all of the others. Hours of fun for all your friends and family. Designed for 3–6 players aged 12 and up, this boardgame features multiple scenarios, a different lay-out with every game, and enough chills to freeze the heart of any horror fan.

Customer Reviews

Over all, it's a great game and I highly recommend it.
Even if you play with the same group of friends, the game will play out differently each time because there are so many different betrayals.
The game itself was very easy to learn and a lot of fun to play.

This game is really great. Someone in my gaming group has the 1st edition, so we were all really excited when we found out this was being reprinted.
For those of you who have played the first edition, the gameplay is the same. Some rules have been clarified, and there is more text on some of the room tiles for ease of use.
For those of you who haven't played: you should. You are a group of explorers going through a haunted house. Up to 6 people can play, and each of the 6 character cards has a front and a back, each with different stats to add variation. Other people have posted more on how the game works, so I won't go too much into it right now.
This reprint added some new haunts, which is really fun. I haven't had a chance to play many of the new ones, but I did get to play one with hidden traitors, and I enjoyed it. Some of the haunts can also be unbalanced. I was the traitor for one haunt where I didn't get to do a single damage to any of the heroes. The next week, I was the traitor for the same haunt and I absolutely obliterated the heroes. It all depends on how the house is set up, and dice luck.
My only complaint about this reprint is the quality of the components of this game. Something about the cardboard they used this time around just doesn't work. The first print had good, thick cardboard that felt high-quality. When I took this reprint out of the box, all of the cardboard components started to warp. The room tile stack can easily be compressed an inch or two because of this warping. Some people have prevented this by immediately placing the cardboard pieces under a book for a day or two after opening them, but I'm not sure if that works all of the time or not. Another component they didn't quite get right are the black plastic clips.

I've only played this edition a few times, but so far I am loving it! It doesn't seem much different from the first besides the new and more balanced haunts, plus some board fixes (the Underground Lake is no longer an upper floor tile sadly!). The room tiles and characters are pretty much the exact same, but it looks like they did some minor revamping with the monster/item tokens so that they're easier to differentiate when searching for a specific token.

For those of you who are new to BAHOTH, I definitely recommend picking it up, especially if you're into other RPG styled board games (or just any RPG games in general). Basically, each character has four stats (Might, Speed, Sanity, Knowledge) that they need to keep up during the game to continue exploring, find items, etc before the Haunt begins. Once the Haunt begins, one (or more) of the characters becomes the "traitor", essentially the game is now the house + the traitor(s) vs the heroes (everyone else playing). The heroes read a scenario from a different guide than the traitor(s), in a separate room so that each team can develop a game plan. From there, the house and the traitor(s) attempt to prevent the heroes from escaping or solving the mystery of the house (depends on the Haunt presented). There are a ton of different Haunt scenarios, and each one is really interesting because they usually involve the history of the house, or the history of the characters, and each party has a different perspective on it that the other party isn't aware of.

All in all, definitely pick this one up, ESPECIALLY now that it's getting close to Halloween! It's best played with more than 3 friends (I think max is 6) to creepy Halloween music at night. Enjoy!

I actually bought this game at my local game store and discovered the tile warping discussed in many reviews. I returned to the game store and ran into a Wizards of the Coast employee who, as soon as he saw me returning the game, asked me if it was because of the "tiles". He explained that they had a moisture issue during the initial print run that caused the tiles to warp slightly when removed from the shrink wrap. He said that the problem had been addressed during the subsequent production run and he very generously volunteered to send me a new set of tiles, so I didn't have to return the game after all.

As for the game itself, it's not bad. I was really hoping it was a hidden traitor game, but unfortunately, the traitor is revealed as soon as he or she is designated. The strength of the game is the collection of ending scenarios which provides a lot of interesting variety during the first 50 play-throughs. On the down side, the game is light on strategy and heavy on luck, especially during the first half of each game. If you've got kids between 10 and 16, they'll probably enjoy it a lot.

Fair disclosure requires that I admit I enjoy games with very complicated rules to begin with .. yes I am one of those "dungeons and dragons" geeks you hear about casting missiles at the darkness and what not :P .. so my threshold so to speak for the sheer complexity of the game will be higher than other more casual board-gamers... if you are an RPG geek by the way (I'm referring to old fashioned D&D style RPG's not video game RPG's here btw , the latter of which is arguably much easier to understand/play) I can't recommend this game enough you'll have a blast with it !

Otherwise.. you're taking a risk buying this game. You'll have one of two reactions... you'll either love it due to the sheer complexity and intricacy involved with the game ... or you'll hate it for the same reasons ("This game is just too hard/complicated/impossible to understand!")... I would argue that if you leave it to the kids to play by themselves they would have to be at LEAST 16 years of age or thereabouts in order to have a chance of grasping the concepts behind the game and even then it may take more than one read-through going through the rulebooks as it did for me..

At the time that I write this review I notice that there is a utube tutorial for the game done by uploaders calling themselves " two guys and some cardboard" titled " betrayal at house on the hill tutorial " that to me is a great walk-through and absolutely required viewing for newbies to this game.. or you could try " let's play betrayal at house on the hill" on utube by " thenerdnight" ("thenerdnight" videos to me do a better job of showing the game "in-play" and what it would look like if you were playing with but they swear quite a bit so don't watch it if kids are present :P ...
