Boardgame News posted a video today unboxing the new edition of Betrayal at House on the Hill. It looks pretty much like the original version, which is unsurprising. Most of the changes probably went into incorporating errata and generating content, such as putting the underground lake in the basement where it belongs.
Two physical changes I liked were reducing the number of tokens and color-coding them, as well as the introduction of a plastic tray to the box. The original version of Betrayal at House on the Hill used a cardboard tray divided into six sections, which in practice meant all the pieces were shuffled up and mixed together if you ever did more than let the box lie flat on a shelf. The new tray looks like it go a long way to keeping the bits more organized, although the monster tokens will certainly still need baggies, if fewer.
I’m really looking forward to finally getting my own copy of this game, as well as exploring the content changes from the original. Haunts have reportedly been improved, or replaced with new haunts — hopefully more robustly tested than the last batch.
