Well I just played BaHotH at GenCon and I can offer my impressions of what seems to be a fairly simple board game mixed with some light RPG elements.
You begin the game as one of six characters: teenage boy, professor, little girl, and there is one other male character and two females that I can't remember. Each character is represented by a plastic painted figurine. In front of you is a card that measures four characteristics, two are mental: sanity and knowledge while the other two are physical: speed and power. There are a bunch of tiles that will form the house and special dice with one, two, or zero pips.
