Gloom - Card Game- Main Game 2nd Edition
The Game of Inauspicious Incidents and Grave Consequences
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 Mauled by a Manatee 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.
