In this article, we will discuss the rules of the game, how many players are required, and some tips to help you win! Let’s get started.
To play Betrayal at House on the Hill, you will need a minimum of three players and a maximum of six aged 12 and up. Each player will choose a character token to represent them throughout the game. The character tokens are:
The object of the game is to be the first player to reach thirteen omen points. Omen points are acquired by exploring the house and encountering different events. Some events will be positive and award omen points, while others will be negative and cause you to lose omen points. The game is played in two phases: the exploration phase and the haunt phase.
During the exploration phase, players will take turns moving through the house and encountering events. The player can move up to three spaces per turn. When a player enters a new room, they will draw an event card to see what happens. Some event cards will require the player to roll dice to resolve them. Other event cards will have different instructions that must be followed.
The haunt phase begins when one of the players reaches thirteen omen points. At this point, the player with the most omen points becomes the traitor and reads aloud the corresponding haunts from the rulebook. The other players become investigators and must try to survive whatever horror the traitor has in store for them. The game ends when either the investigators win or the traitor achieves their victory condition.
