what If There Isn’t a rule for That?
Many hours went into play testing house on the hill game, but it’s still possible you’ll run into situations where the game rules or haunt books don’t clearly answer a question about game play. Don’t let that slow you down. In such cases, come to
an agreement as a group for what makes the most sense and go with it. (If that doesn’t work, ﬂip a coin to decide.) Then continue your experience in the house.
