Rules of Play - 28.03.2014


betrayal at house on the hill

Game of the Week – Betrayal at House on the Hill. One of the most anticipated restocks has finally returned to the shelves this week! Betrayal at House on the Hill is a brilliant and evocative horror game for 3-6 players. In the game, you’ll explore a mysterious and creepy haunted house together, but beware – one of you will become a secret traitor, and must betray your friends. With multiple scenarios and different characters to play, Betrayal at House on the Hill is a brilliant game with a heavy emphasis on story-telling, perfect for a memorable spooky evening in with friends. For more information, check out Wil Wheaton and friends taking on the haunted house on Tabletop(part 2 available here).
