Episode Info:

Our October month of suitably spooky games continues! We tackle a board game that EVERYONE has been telling us to talk about: Betrayal At The House On The Hill!

Avalon Hill and Wizards Of The Coast have been publishing this modern classic since 2004, but have recently updated it with an expansion and spin-off called Betrayal At Baldur's Gate. How fun are they? How do they compare? Which game has more vampires? WE SHALL DISCUSS IT!

NOTE: We received a very strange phone call this episode and apologize for the spooky caller!
