For various reasons, the other month we went into Aldershot and visited “The Games Shop”. This is, as you’d guess, a shop that sells board games, games books, jigsaws and other games accessories; but not computer games, which is maybe why it has no web site. At our first visit, last year, we picked up “Murder at the Abbey” also here…, and this time bought “Betrayal at the House on the Hill”. Its fantastic – collaborative, re-playable, and with strong varied stories, our first night was Buffy’s Hell’s Gate, a deeply dramatic story.
I’m playing Professor Longfellow, academic buffer, very knowledgeable, limited strength and sanity, trapped in the basement by the flames of the abyss, I gave “Flash”, the school running team star my mystic ring as he climbed out of the basement using his rope to take it Madame Victoria. He joined up with the other two players and we managed to perform the ceremonies to close the Hell Gate and discover the secret passage just in time to rescue me from a fiery death.
