Gloom (Second Edition)
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 on your own characters to lower their Self-Worth scores, while trying to cheer your opponents' characters with happy occasions that pile on positive points. The player with the lowest score wins!
This kooky Tim Burton-esque card game will suit those who are looking for a game night with a dark sense of humour. The transparent cards and artwork will be great talking points in this grim card game!
