If you like horror movies and board games, pick this game up.  35-40 dollars at most retailers.  It is a set of rooms, markers, and cards that represent a party of two-to-six people going into that old house on the hill and exploring it.  Part of the way through the adventure, one player becomes the traitor and must meet a specific secret goal.  The other players become the heroes and must meet their own specific secret goal (each side has a book you look in).  There are fifty different scenarios, and a decent system for knowing what scenario you will be playing when that Omen roll fails.  Can't wait to give this one a play, but I had to mention it.  It's got fiddly bits, random gameboard, the right atmosphere. smile  YAY!

It was this moment that took the movie from being a little ho-hum to “holy shit, did that shark just eat a plane!?”

I played this one a few weeks ago.  Very solid game, and fun with a good group of people.

It looks fun.  The amazon review mentioned there was a rules update on the web page that fixed some inconsistencies.

I picked up the Doom 3 boardgame at Gencon, it's a really neat boardgame.  It's actually better than the PC game.
