Plenty have reviewed the game itself, so instead I'll note the construction issues.
The little sliders for your characters' stats are godawful and fall out constantly. My friends and I gave up and just started using a whiteboard to track everything until I find some kind of solution by bending the sliders or something. There are tons and tons of tiny tokens, but no real organizer for them and easily 90% of the tokens don't get used in a session. I, again, had to make my own organizer to handle these things so I didn't have to dig for five minutes to find a "skeletons" triangle or something.
Other than minor annoyances though, the game is pretty great for a fast pick up and has fairly long shelf life due to the inherit semi-random nature of it.
Eventually, once enough omen cards have been selected, something called "the haunt" begins. At that point one of the players turns traitor! He or she then goes off and reads the haunt instructions from a booklet, while the remaining players read different haunt instructions from another booklet. Both players and traitor get instructions on how to win the game. This is totally cool. Sometimes your foe is a ghost, sometimes a mummy, sometimes it's the house itself seemingly come to life! The clock starts ticking then, as you have a certain number of turns to win by.
Just remember one thing: the rules are there to help, not to drive you nuts. If something is unclear you can ask in many online places (including here on Amazon) but remember to keep playing even when confused about a rule. Decide what you think the rule means and go for it! If you later on find out that you didn't do the rule correctly, just play it "right" the next time. Or stick to your own interpretation. It's a game, and it's FUN. Enjoy!
Now where did I leave my holy water...
**Gameplay: 5 stars**
We all have a blast playing the game! Just when the exploring starts to become dull, the game switches to a survival game where anything can happen. The random unpredictability keeps all of us on our toes.
**Board Pieces: 4 stars**
The board pieces aren't warped yet for our game, and I hope it never happens. The artwork is great and the sliding counters fit perfectly. The cards are high quality and fun.
**Figurines: 2 stars**
These were the biggest disappointments for me. They are very low quality and the faces look warped and inhuman. It was hard for us to distinguish a few pieces apart because of their low quality. If I had a collection of other figurines, I'd be very tempted to use them.
**Instruction Manual: 3 stars**
Although they did a good job trying to explain the gameplay for a quirky, random game like this, our group was left with almost as many questions as we had answers. We looked up as much as we could, even searched online, but in the end had to come up with some reasonable house rules.
**Replay-ability: 5 stars**
The random nature of the game means you'll be playing it a lot!
As I said before, this game has got it where it counts. Even though it's not a perfect game by any means, it is so much fun I forgive it for its faults. Get it, play it a few times, enjoy it. That's what gaming is all about.
This game really captures the B-movie horror/thriller/sci-fi vibe amazingly well! I love thematic games that immerse you in the game and allow you to create your own stories and Betrayal At House On The Hill definitely gives you those tools. The art and all of the components are great and add to the feel of the game. While the combat rules can be a little clunky at times and a few of the clips used to keep track of the various stats were a little loose and wouldn't stick, there is so much about this game to love, that I have to recommend it wholeheartedly! If you like co-op games, exploration, hidden traitor mechanics, or have ever wanted to play out an episode of Scooby Doo or a B-movie, do yourself a favor and check out Betrayal At House On The Hill!
