Hello,

I've got exactly 4 players.

The popular hidden traitor games seem to be optimized for 5 (e.g. Battlestar Galactica, Dark Moon, Shadows over Camelot).

Which hidden traitor game is really good with a 4 player count?

This can be a base game, with 4 players designed in mind, or it could be base game with an expansion that improves the 4 player count from "meh" to "great!".

I'm really looking to find the best of them, and I'm looking for ideas I may not have considered.

Second this. Shadows Over Camelot is another one, but I much prefer DOW.

Give Betrayal at House on the Hill a look co-op until the haunt starts then traitor is revealed, this game has 50 endings so it has a lot of replay ability

The Thing is good with 4. I personally think more players = better but 4 is still a really good game.

The traitor is so hidden, they don't even know they're the traitor until halfway through the game. Easily my favorite hidden traitor game.

And also why it is my least favorite hidden traitor game. First half of the game is a long boring set up. Second half can lead to some fun moments though.

We are trying the long night this weekend, but it isn't guaranteed to be a traitor game! ( and that's a lot of its charm)


But I like the other suggestions and will definitely be checking them out too.
