I'm glad I was already planning on picking this up b/c this is the first I've heard of pre-painted minis and if that had pushed me over the edge, I'd be a little ashamed.

So in!

The original had prepainted minis, and since this is Wizards of the Coast, I couldn't picture them not having the same minis...

Ooo:
Quote:

The Haunt books have been refreshed with 8 new haunts – some of which feature a new “hidden traitor” game mechanic.
The Item cards have been updated with 5 new items!
The die-cut game play tokens have been redesigned making them easier to identify.
Exciting and compelling new art and design on the box.


That means it may be worth having both first and second editions.

Why own first and second editions? It looks like they fixed everything that was wrong in the first edition in this one. I was actually considering selling mine.

Anyone know if they've updated the rules? I loved the concept of the game, but found it unplayable due to the sloppy execution.

Read the rulebook, plan for all contingencies, and…read the rulebook again.

Ah! Finally an official printing of the game.
I was a bit tired of playing with my outdated playtest kit.

Exactly. I've often warned new players that Betrayal is the beta version of what could have been a truly great game. Now hopefully it will be!

If you want me to take a dump in a box and call it Betrayal at House on the Hill I will, I've got the time.

The point is, how do you know the traitor isn't a crazy glue sniffer?

Given the not-low MSRP, I hope that means they're not going the el cheapo route like they did with Acquire.

One has to remember this is Hasbro and with that in mind I'm going to take the wait and see approach.

Thats understandable. The Avalon Hill brand hasn't been the same since Hasbro transfered control from their East Longmeadow division to their Wizards of the Coast division.
