The world of Gloom is a sad and benighted place. The sky is gray, the tea is cold, and a new tragedy lies around every corner. Debt, disease, heartache, and packs of rabid flesh-eating mice -- just when it seems like things can't get any worse, they do. But some say that one's reward in the afterlife is based on the misery endured in life. If so, there may yet be hope -- if not in this world, then in the peace that lies beyond.
In the Gloom card game, you assume control of the fate of an eccentric family of misfits and misanthropes. The goal of the game is sad, but simple: you want your characters to suffer the greatest tragedies possible before passing on to the well-deserved respite of death. You'll play horrible mishaps like Pursued by Poodles or Mocked by Midgets on your own characters to lower their Self-Worth scores, while trying to cheer your opponents' characters with marriages and other happy occasions that pile on positive points. The player with the lowest total Family Value wins.
Printed on transparent plastic cards, Gloom features an innovative design by noted RPG author Keith Baker. Multiple modifier cards can be played on top of the same character card; since the cards are transparent, elements from previously played modifier cards either show through or are obscured by those played above them. You'll immediately and easily know the worth of every character, no matter how many modifiers they have. You've got to see (through) this game to believe it!
For 2 to 4 players, ages 8 and up.
Such a creative game-playing experience! Fantastic! Not for the laid back gamer-player. Imagination is mandatory to make the game fun!!Published 1 day ago by Lisa Y Castro
Magnificent game for storytellers. It's a little morbid for some kids probably, but adults will love to play this on occasion. Very well made cards, too.Published 10 days ago by Susan Cook
very limited game play. great for a handful of games and then it will go in drawer never to be drawn out again till Halloween or a dreary dreary day in July.Published 15 days ago by Sam N.
This is a fantastic card game to have on hand when entertaining guests who are creative and enjoy crafting interesting stories of the macabre variety. Read morePublished 17 days ago by John E Priegnitz
This is fun to play with natural story tellers those that enjoy hearing stories as well. Non story tellers will get bored and will kinda ruin things by trying to rush everything.Published 1 month ago by User # 9
