Betrayal at House on the Hill Board Game Finally Getting Expansion

Betrayal at House on the Hill is one of the staples of modern board games. The game has been around for more than 10 years, and after reprints and new editions, the game is finally getting its very own expansion.

Betrayal is a tile-laying exploration game in a spooky house. As players find new rooms, they encounter terrifying omens and spirits, often both psychologically and physically harming the character.

As you play, the game-changing “haunt” becomes more and more likely to occur. Once it occurs, one of the players becomes the traitor, with their own win conditions and objectives. They read their goals out of their own story book, while the rest of the party then must get their instructions on how to win from another book.

Avalon Hill‘s expansion for the iconic game, Betrayal at House on the Hill Widow’s Walk, includes 50 new haunts, new monsters, new event cards, new omen cards, and new item cards. There will also be 20 new room tiles, which will open up the roof as an area players can explore.

The list of contributors who helped write the scenarios is extremely impressive. Max Temkin, creator of Cards Against Humanity, is on the list, along with Adventure Time creator Pendleton Ward, and Penny Arcade writer Jerry Holkins. Video game designers Zoë Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian also helped write the haunt scenarios.
