CUDO Plays Recommends
This week the game we are recommending, Betrayal at House on a Hill as we enter into the spooky month of October!
Betrayal at House on the Hill is a tile game that allows players to build their own haunted house room by room, tile by tile, creating a new thrilling game board every time. The game is designed for three to six people, each of whom plays one of six possible characters.
Secretly, one of the characters betrays the rest of the party, and the innocent members of the party must defeat the traitor in their midst before it’s too late! Betrayal at House on the Hill will appeal to any game player who enjoys a fun, suspenseful, and strategic game. A cool spooky game for about 3-6 people that plays around an hour, especially to get you in the mood for the Halloween season.
