Listing Detail Tabs

The second edition includes sturdy new packaging, rules fixes, timing icons,
reminder cards, and more; plus it's fully compatible with the first edition
game and supplements. It's sure to delight even the most despondent
Gloom fan!

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!

Contents: 20 character cards, 58 modifier cards, 12 event cards,
20 untimely death cards, rules.

Optional extra expansion pack available.
