I want you, Dear Reader, to know that this game is indeed perfectly thick. Not too thick. Not too thin. Just the right amount of thick. This is indeed a question that I ask myself anytime I consider buying a game. "Sure, it sounds like it's totally fun to play, but how thick is it?" A game that is overly thick just isn't welcome in my house. How do you possibly handle a game that has too much girth? And sure, a game might be easy to learn, but if it's not thick enough, can it really even be called a game? A diversion, maybe. A distraction, sure. But for a game to be game, it has to be substantially thick. Thick enough. But not too thick.
So, while I would give Betrayal at House on the Hill five stars just on entertainment value and replayability, I find myself longing for more stars to give, in honor of the game's perfect, sturdy, robust, proportional and dependable thickness. Truly the thickest game that ever thicked thicks.
But not too thick.
HOWEVER, there are VERY VERY negative spiritual elements in this game, in the book that said DO NOT READ (because it is for the scenarios). There is voodoo with an explanation of different voodoo dolls, seances, the gateway to hell, pentagrams, demons.... It goes beyond fun scary things into really, really dark things. I played it once, and it's now not allowed in my house. 'Nuf said.
1) Are you someone who enjoys long, drawn out, complicated, convoluted, games of mild strategy/mostly luck? You have no where else you need to be for the next 4 hours? Really?? Sad. If so, this game is for you, proceed to the next step.
2) Be sure to look up the revised rules, as the current rule book has tons of inaccuracies and some of the haunts make absolutely no sense.
3) Read everything multiple times. Got a number in your head? No, more than that. EVEN. MORE. Good. Now you'll still be confused but at least you'll be confused with the correct information.
4) Consider wearing costumes. It really livens things up.
5) Play on a large surface. The house will grow in every imaginable direction, there will be cards and dead bodies everywhere. It's a mess, make sure you have the space for it.
My main issue related to this game is the quality of the game and pieces. All of the small monster/item/etc token pieces require you to punch out the pieces from a large sheet. A large portion of my pieces ripped and tore when punching them out. Additionally, a room tile and character card have some small tears on them. The characters are all made of cheap plastic. One of them was not set properly and leans so much it barely stands up. I have some friends that own an older version of the game and it is of much higher quality than the game I received. I should also mention that the actual game box has started peeling. I have only had this game for 2 weeks now and it already looks like its been heavily played for years.
I do want to mention that I reached out to Avalon Hill about the torn game pieces and they are sending me replacement pieces. The customer service was great, but the actual replacement parts are going to take 5-6 weeks to ship to me. It's rather disappointing for a new game that is rather expensive to buy. I expected higher quality. I can only hope that the replacement pieces are better than the originals that I received.

Lots of fun to play, especially as you're never quite sure as to when the game will change completely or who will suddenly turn on the rest of the group. Lots of replayability with a book full of different betrayer scenarios to play through. The game is dead easy to learn and quickly becomes involved and challenging! Always fun to play!
It was useful to have someone who knew the game to help us get used to it. The nice thing is the way that the game can have so much variety due to the way you pick the 'traitor' and all the different characters. so do persist with it. It's not as complicated as it first seems.
I bought this as a present and was a little disappointed as the bottom of the box had been significantly dented. If I had bought it 'in a store' I would have picked another one, or asked for a discount. If this is the reason it was a good price (reduced compared to most sellers) then they should have said. It didn't look like it was due to the delivery, as it was like the bottom had been pushed in (bent upwards in a curve) then the cellophane tight wrapping put on afterwards, as the cellophane wasn't dented and was unbroken! ie it had somehow happened during manufacture.
Luckily it hadn't damaged the contents and as it was for the family we kept it. This was one of those things that annoy me about online purchases, I was intending to buy this in a store, but they didn't have it in stock.
There is one downside. The developers should of made more room tiles as after three games, I've revealed all of the rooms which kind of damages the illusion of exploring a new environment. I think they've addressed this in expansion packs which is sold separately.
Overall it is a lot of fun and I thoroughly recommend it to any fan of board games.
Then buy this! Thats exactly why I did!
At first, upon opening a box, I thought I may have made a mistake. As though I knew I would like it - would the rest of the fam' be able to cope with more advanced rules than the above mentioned ones...
But after a few test runs with Eleven year old son (sharing the 3rd player - at least 3 are necessary, and beneficial, in the long run though - I found it very easy to learn the basics for that full on; 3 to 6 player experience.
Really good fun if you have the patience and imagination to accompany it - you can play it many, many times and it be a different story and board layout. Genius!
(Needs a large-ish dining table or floor space to play it)
On the whole, the game is easy enough to learn. Although the manual is pretty hefty, if you play it through and read the rules as you go its less tricky. Probably not going to want to play it with juniors.
Lovely quality board pieces (you lay down the house one tile at a time) and overall tokens and everything else are what you would expect from today's modern board games.
So overall, not without fault but generally worthwhile.
