Tons of replay value

Cooperative game

I've only played this edition a few times, but so far I am loving it! It doesn't seem much different from the first besides the new and more balanced haunts, plus some board fixes (the Underground Lake is no longer an upper floor tile sadly!). The room tiles and characters are pretty much the exact same, but it looks like they did some minor revamping with the monster/item tokens so that they're easier to differentiate when searching for a specific token.

For those of you who are new to BAHOTH, I definitely recommend picking it up, especially if you're into other RPG styled board games (or just any RPG games in general). Basically, each character has four stats (Might, Speed, Sanity, Knowledge) that they need to keep up during the game to continue exploring, find items, etc before the Haunt begins. Once the Haunt begins, one (or more) of the characters becomes the "traitor", essentially the game is now the house + the traitor(s) vs the heroes (everyone else playing). The heroes read a scenario from a different guide than the traitor(s), in a separate room so that each team can develop a game plan. From there, the house and the traitor(s) attempt to prevent the heroes from escaping or solving the mystery of the house (depends on the Haunt presented). There are a ton of different Haunt scenarios, and each one is really interesting because they usually involve the history of the house, or the history of the characters, and each party has a different perspective on it that the other party isn't aware of.

All in all, definitely pick this one up, ESPECIALLY now that it's getting close to Halloween! It's best played with more than 3 friends (I think max is 6) to creepy Halloween music at night. Enjoy!
