When: Monday, October 09, 2017 - 5:00 PM - 7:45 PM
Where: Anderson Public Library at Cardinal Room

Take a deep breath before you enter. It might be your last.

The creak of footsteps on the stairs, the smell of something foul and dead, the feel of something crawling down your back—this and more can be found in this award-winning and highly acclaimed game of strategy and horror. BETRAYAL AT HOUSE ON THE HILL 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. The game is designed for three to six people, each of whom 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!

Game Night for Grownups is the second Monday each month. We will teach the featured game of the month but you are welcome to bring your own games, too! Beginners welcome!

Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.
