Betrayal at House on the Hill

Journey through a haunted mansion and discover what’s held inside! Betrayal at House on the Hill starts with the exploration phase, where everyone operates on the same team and explores the house together. The game takes a turn when the Haunt phase is triggered by a player. The Haunt phase differs per scenario, thus providing variety to eat time you play. In this phase, anyone can be the “traitor” even though it’s usually the person that triggered the haunt. Follow the objectives and achieve your victory goal as either players or the “traitor.”


Four deadly diseases that have been released into the world and it’s up to you and your group of friends to cure them. Experience the intense cooperative gameplay that is Pandemic. Rather than pitting players against each other, players need to cooperate to achieve their main goal of curing all the diseases. Work together and succeed, act alone and the world might end. Choose between several roles (dispatcher, medic, scientist, researcher, or operations expert) and coordinate the best moves on your turns to prevent the diseases from spreading!
