Legacy Betrayal

WOTC has announced a Legacy version of Betrayal at House on the Hill. Interesting idea but the Legacy fad seems to have tapered off. Risk Legacy did really well as the first title in the category and the first "season" of Pandemic did well. Seafall, however, the first Legacy game without a tie-in to another franchise, pretty much crashed and burned. FFG sold it off at a pretty seep discount on the company website last Christmas.

Charterstone has done OK, although it did not call itself a Legacy game; nor did Gloomhaven, though Gloomhaven is selling on other points, such as its sheer size and difficulty to get. If Gloomhaven was readily available, I don't think we would see nearly the demand for the game that we currently see.
