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. 5One 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.It's an exploration/board building game with an eerie theme about it and a really unique mechanic.Players begin by choosing a character -- one of 12, each of which have their own set of stats. Then players enter the house, flipping cards to uncover rooms to build out the mansion. Rooms can contain special events, items (like weapons, armor, or occult paraphernalia), or omens. Which are bad.Whenever an omen is found, the player that found it must roll the die and roll more than the number of omens that have currently been found. If a player fails to roll more than the number of omens, then THE HAUNT BEGINS. At this point, the instruction book is consulted which will tell you which haunt scenario to follow based on the conditions that caused it to occur. Usually one player is named the betrayer and is given their on set of instructions to follow (I suggest you make them leave the room) while the rest of the explorers plan their strategy to defeat them.There are around 30 different scenarios you can play out, which means that you can play several different unique stories. The flavor text of all the cards is pretty entertaining, so things are best if everyone can get into it when they're reading to the group.Overall it's a really fun game that can be enjoyed by both seasoned board gamers and beginners. 5Upgrade Kit has serious flawsWas pretty excited to get this until upon closer inspection, I found that many of the numbers are upside down. You can see this in the picture, where the top left skull is upside down, as compared to the top right. The yellow player card has both top right skulls upside down, and the top right of the white card has all the numbers upside down. Ruins the theme :/ 1Great Game, Poor QualityI would like to start by saying that Betrayal is one of my all time favorite games. If I'm rating this based on the overall gameplay, I would give it a 4/5 stars. Only 4 stars because, as many other reviewers have mentioned, there are many haunts that are lacking details that can make the gameplay rather confusing.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.Gameplay - 4/5 starsGame Quality - 1/5 starsAvg Rating - 3/5 stars 3Fun but LOTS of RULESThis 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. 4Difficult 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:One of the difficult parts to learn was what "The Haunt" and "Monster Roll" was. The haunt is basically where the game changes.The monster roll is the turn of the monster (whatever monster is activated) during the haunt.Basically, you & your group enter a haunted house. Roll the dice to see how many rooms/steps you take. You start off with just the entryway-you "discover" rooms as you go. This means you grab a board piece that corresponds to whatever floor you are on and add it to the board where you are.Once you enter a room, some will have a symbol on the room & it will direct you to pick up a card & read/follow the directions on it.It's best to discover as many rooms as possible before the haunt is activated. *The haunt is activated by a dice roll.During the haunt: One person will take on an extra role of being the monster. The other players will try to defeat the monster.See? Not too hard, but unless you read the whole booklet very carefully, you might not understand fully. It took 3 of us fumbling thru one game, then kinda knowing what we were doing during the second. Then we some-what mastered it on the 3rd round.It is ok with just 3 players, but way more fun with 4 or more!It has a great re-play ability to it. Each time things will change-rooms, monsters, items you have, etc.Overall, this is a great game. It has a learning curve in the beginning, but you can catch on quickly after that. Like I said, having at least one person to help the others walk thru it, makes it way more fun & easy to learn! It's not a quick game-if you take your time & especially if you are new, it will take at least an hour to play!We paid $31 + tax for it and it was worth it. Hopefully, they will make a new addition with easier to understand directions. I'd also like to see it take longer to activate the haunt. It is fun exploring the rooms & lots of times we only have a few before the haunt! 4So much good horror fun!We've had a LOT of fun with this game. Mechanics are pretty simple: you pick a character and "explore" an old house, by going through doorways to reveal new rooms. You then pick a new room tile from the stack of tiles and lay it out, connecting it to the doorway you just passed through. Most rooms have either an event, an item, or an omen in them. If so, your turn ends and you collect an event or item or omen card. These cards are fun and sometimes you get benefits, sometimes bad things happen to you.Eventually, once enough omen cards have been selected, something called "the haunt" begins. At that point one of the players turns traitor! He or she then goes off and reads the haunt instructions from a booklet, while the remaining players read different haunt instructions from another booklet. Both players and traitor get instructions on how to win the game. This is totally cool. Sometimes your foe is a ghost, sometimes a mummy, sometimes it's the house itself seemingly come to life! The clock starts ticking then, as you have a certain number of turns to win by.Just remember one thing: the rules are there to help, not to drive you nuts. If something is unclear you can ask in many online places (including here on Amazon) but remember to keep playing even when confused about a rule. Decide what you think the rule means and go for it! If you later on find out that you didn't do the rule correctly, just play it "right" the next time. Or stick to your own interpretation. It's a game, and it's FUN. Enjoy!Now where did I leave my holy water... 5Terrible game for all agesI like certain parts of the game where you build your own gameboard, and there's fun things like Frankenstein and Dracula, no problem.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. 1No one wants to end up a monster ... or do they ?!?!?In our attempt to preserve family time within our family we have board game night every Thursday. This began when the children were little and has remained a fun family tradition into the children s 20 s.As with anything the games have evolved from CandyLand to Risk, Axis and Allies and now this.We have already played it three times and enjoy it every time.Pros: The concept is great, it s enganging , unique board design, high variety of outcomes , the cooperative concept can change to player VS player changing the dynamic and creating quantifiable fun, it can be a long or short game depending on the variables and it covers our need to include all of our age groups for entertainment value.Cons: Being the monster can be confusing as the literature (instruction book) is not written for beginners, although variable scenarios are possible it can quickly become familiar leaving the surprise aspect absent, limited card selection (we are already buying the additional pack at roughly $19.00) so this could be intentional as a way to upsell the product. (Brilliant marketing strategy)As a tool in our parental tool box to combat the digital age and losing touch with our children on a very personal level this is a great addition and will be played for many years.Other facts to know:The players build the game board as they go and this can demand a large playing area.Game cards will scratch if played on a rough surface. We play on a stone dining table and this has occurred.The monster scenarios are all different and in our expierence thus far - it appears everyone wants to be the monster.It costs less to buy this than the amount you would spend to take the whole family to one movie, you could play this for many evenings.Enjoy and game on ! 5Death to the zombie hoard or Banshees would be better than this.I'm going to be that person. Everyone at the party is like "Oh my god, I love Betrayal!" and I would literally rather be sucked into the walls of pulsating slime than play this game another time. Nonetheless, I have played this game dozens (or what feels like hundreds) of times and I know a thing or two about it.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. 2
