Students in the Board Game Club at Piedmont Virginia Community College or PVCC are getting in the Halloween spirit and testing out a game one of their professors designed. It's called Betrayal at House On The Hill.
Mark Sunga is in the board game club and likes the game.
"I think this is fun. It builds up strategy," Sunga said.
There are ghosts, zombies, and vampires. Just a few evil villains players avoid as they wander through the haunted house.
Betrayal at House On The Hill was designed by Bruce Glassco, an English professor at the college. The game was first published in 2004 and the second addition was recently released.
"Along with English and literature, I've always loved board games and so ever since I started playing board games I've also started trying to design them," Glassco said.
Black and white vampire movies from the 1930's inspired Glassco to design the game.
"I think from a literary perspective there's a lot of great stories about ghost stories, I mean people have been telling ghost stories every since they first started telling stories," Glassco said.
The game takes players about an hour to complete and it is available at Amazon.com and sells for about $45.
Wednesday night, Professor Glassco is hosting a presentation on Dracula and other vampires. It begins at 6 p.m. at Dickinson Maxwell Theatre at PVCC.
