betrayal-at-house-on-the-hill.jpg

One of the Break-Out Hits of 2014

This collection includes both actual board games (played on a board, using pieces or counters), board games that require cards, and games entirely composed of cards. 

What it does not include is so-called Collectible Card Games or Living Card Games, such as Magic: the Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh, or dice games. Those are in other collections.

I know, it’s confusing.
