Difficult to learn at first! Great Fun! Best for 4+ players! New fun every time!
This game is a lot of fun, but it is hard to learn. The directions can be somewhat confusing-especially if you are new to the game. It is so much easier to have someone who knows how to play to explain it to you as you go! I’ll do a quick synopsis to demonstrate:
Board Game of the Year (and Beyond)
One of the best board games out there. Unique concept, and tons of replayability value. It starts out as a normal coop game, but at some point, one person (usually) turns traitor and it becomes 1 vs all others. Once that happens, the game ramps up and it’s on. Play intensifies quite a bit as you now compete for survival and to win. There are a few free for all or all coop scenarios, but mostly it revolves around one person being a traitor. I will say the free for alls get really crazy and alot of fun, as you try to beat out everyone else.
Great fun, but not quite polished yet.
One of my favorite board game purchases of the last year. Lots of fun.
Betrayal is one of my top favorite board games that I’m constantly trying to get my friends to play. It’s a fun, challenging game that’s really enjoyable with the right group of people.
Great game for Casual Family.
My family is pretty much casual gamers- although we enjoy games like Settlers and Pandemic, we just don’t seem to have the time or endurance to learn longer, more complex games. Being a big horror fan, I’ve been wanting to get this for years, but put it off for that reason. This year I broke down and got it, and we’re been loving it. It’s really not that hard, and is a lot of fun. My 11-yr-old daughter can’t get enough of it, and takes the betrayal very seriously. The first part of the game is easy: Just move through the house, exploring tiles and experiences minor challenges. Then the Haunt is revealed: One of 50 Random stories. Each of these plays like a slightly different game using the same rules as the first part. It’s a lot of fun, and challenging.
Enjoyable game, marred by less-than-stellar manufacturing
I’ve been playing this game with friends for years and was happy to see another printing happen, so I could pick up a copy for myself for a more reasonable price. It’s a fun game, with a great variation on the co-operative genre, and an entertaining “haunted/spooky” theme. Replay value is great, with 50 different “haunt” scenarios, triggered and chosen randomly for suspense, and each haunt scenario itself replayable (they are most fun the first time, but the “secret” parts mostly just add flavor, rather than being critical to balance, so even once you know the rules for the haunt, it’s not a problem to play it again).
Fun but LOTS of RULES
This is a really fun game, but very involved with LOTS of rules. We have had a few arguments on the interpretation of the rules and decided we needed to take a break from playing this game for awhile. You can’t do “XX”, but you can do this if XX type situations and gets really confused. This is a really a 2 part game. First part you all are exploring the house and having fun building and surviving the unexpected twists each room provides. Then, based on certain conditions, the haunt begins (part 2) and suddenly one of you is the bad guy (traitor) and going after the other explorers (heroes). It is the heroes job to prevail and defeat the traitor, and the traitors job to destroy all (depending on the haunt). There are 50 haunts with different rules. Which haunt you get depends on the room in which it was triggered and the Omen card drawn. Overall, very fun game but requires a lot of mental work to learn.
You may think it sounds complicated, your friends may be hesitant to try a game so ‘elaborate.’
