I have to say, even though I’ve never cared for Scooby Doo and for as much of a barely able to function hot mess of a game as Betrayal at House On the Hill is, this is the most genius pairing of a well known game and IP since Loopin’ Chewie.

Yeah, this is a much better match for the Scooby Doo license than that escape room game announced last week.

Still, I'm a little disappointed that Betrayal at House on the Hill isn't getting the classic Avalon Hill treatment, with a thick rulebook designed to address every possible aspect of the simulation. Chits, CRT, assymetrical starting positions and victory conditions, and every rule numbered something like 1.3.a.2.

Betrayal isn’t that kind of game. I think we all just need to get over it.

Just kidding about the wargame treatmnet.

Betrayal at House on the Hill allowed for up to six players. The Scooby Doo crew has only five members: Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy, and Scooby. So hopefully this game includes a generic older white guy character who is the betrayer every game. That's how worked in the cartoon. There was often just one extra character each episode, like a landlord or caretaker of the haunted house, and that was always the guy under the rubber monster mask at the end.

My understanding is that the betrayer players character disappears (which also happened all the time on the cartoon) and they take control of the “monster.”
