Friday the 13th Pizza and Board Games

When: 7:30 pm in Friday, January 13th, 2017.
Where: Going Rogue Gardens (Brendan’s House), 4510 NE Going St. Portland, OR.
What: it’s Friday the 13th! Come play Betrayal at House on the Hill and eat pizza. Hosted by Brendan.

Betrayal at House on the Hill builds suspense and excitement as players explore a haunted mansion of their own design, encountering spirits and frightening omens that foretell their fate. Estimated one hour playing time. 3-6 players. (Depending on our numbers, we might get a couple copies of the game going.)

This is a tile game that allows players to build their own haunted house room by room, tile by tile, creating a new thrilling game board every time. Each person plays one of six possible characters. Secretly, one of the characters betrays the rest of the party, and the innocent members of the party must defeat the traitor in their midst before it’s too late!
