Betrayal at House on the Hill Review
In Betrayal at House on the Hill, you and your friends explore a creepy old house. As you look around the house, you will find new rooms. Different encounters are waiting for you when you enter each new room. As you and your friends progress, some of you will begin to change (for better or worse), depending on how you deal with the house’s surprises.
At some point in the game, one of you will trigger a scenario called a haunt. When the haunt is revealed, one of you will become a traitor and he/she will try to defeat the rest of you. The rest of you will become heroes and will try to survive. The game becomes a fight between the traitor and the heroes.
The game has 50 haunts/scenarios, each one telling a different story.
