Board Game: Betrayal at Baldur's Gate
On June 3, 2017, during its "Stream of Annihilation" — a special event to announce its new Dungeons & Dragons storyline "Tomb of Annihilation" — Wizards of the Coast revealed a separate D&D-related item that will be of interest to board game fans as well: Betrayal at Baldur's Gate, a 3-6 player game based on Betrayal at House on the Hill that's due out November 15 October 6, 2017. (You can view the announcement in this video starting at 2:38:20.) Here's a game overview from the publisher:

The shadow of Bhaal has come over Baldur's Gate, summoning monsters and other horrors from the darkness!

As you build and explore the iconic city's dark alleys and deadly catacombs, you must work with your fellow adventurers to survive the terrors ahead. That is, until some horrific evil turns one — or possibly more — of you against each other. Was it a mind flayer's psionic blast or the whisperings of a deranged ghost that caused your allies to turn traitor? You have no choice but to keep your enemies close!

In Betrayal at Baldur's Gate, you'll return to Baldur's Gate again and again thanks to the fifty included scenarios only to discover it's never the same game twice. Can you and your party survive the madness, or will you succumb to the mayhem and split (or slaughter!) the party?
We have an appointment with Avalon Hill on Thursday, June 15, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. EDT (GMT-4) during our Origins Game Fair livestream to show off the game in some detail.
