Betrayal at House on the Hill: Widow's Walk Available!

Today is an exciting day for gamers as Wizards of the Coast releases Widow's Walk, the first ever expansion for the critically acclaimed, Betrayal at House on the Hill board game.

Designed by Betrayal's original lead developer Mike Selinker and his team at Lone Shark Games, in partnership with Wizards of the Coast, the eagerly anticipated expansion pits explorers against horrific new beasts like the doggedly dutiful Fleshchild, the embodied spirit of a smug serial killer, and an army of sentient plastic mannequins, as well as classic monsters like witches, ghosts, and zombies.

"Betrayal at House on the Hill is one of the most popular horror board games of all time," says Nathan Stewart, Senior Brand Director. "Fans have been clamoring for more and we are confident they'll be thrilled-and horrified-by what they'll find in this expansion. There is truly something for everyone."

This is no small expansion, Widow's Walk includes a previously unexplored floor, new tokens, items, omens, events, and 50 brand new haunts written by some of the greatest-and most terrifying-minds from the gaming and entertainment industry such as:

  • Max Temkin and Eli Halpern, co-creators of Cards Against Humanity
  • Pendleton Ward, Emmy Award-winning cartoonist
  • Mikey Neumann, chief creative champion for Borderlands
  • Jerry Holkins, co-creator of the Penny Arcade webcomic
  • Angela Webber, one half of the nerd pop duo The Doubleclicks
  • Justin Gary, co-designer of Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer

There is also a special bonus "mega haunt" triggered when all of the explorers have completed specific haunts.

"Widow's Walk is the game Wizards and Lone Shark needed to make together," said lead designer Mike Selinker. "We quietly put together one of the most diverse and creative teams ever to work on a game, all with one thing in common: We all love the game. Alternately funny, scary, challenging, and bizarre, Widow's Walk is a love letter from the fans of Betrayal to the fans of Betrayal."
