The perfect ‘beer and pretzels’ game, Betrayal tasks players with making your way through a haunted mansion to defeat the unknown evil within. However, this co-operative session soon turns on its head when you collect enough omen tokens – triggering ‘The Haunt’. This sees at least one player take on the role of an evil mastermind and launch into a scenario from literally dozens of genres. This includes zombie attacks, cultist attacks, and much more – letting all of you star in horror film without knowing the genre.
A fantastic dark comedy, Cabin in the Woods is an exceptional deconstruction of the horror genre and serves as a perfect complement to Betrayal’s smorgasbord of terror. Sporting one of the best opening jump-scares in cinematic history, this is a beautiful love-letter to contemporary horror that’s perfectly structured and terrific fun. And with Bradley Whitford, Richard Jenkins, and with a pre-Thor Hemsworth on board for the ride, there’s truly something for all fans of fear.
