Gloom 2nd Edition
A Sad State of Affairs
Misery Loves Company: The World of Gloom
When your family is made up of serial killers, crazed circus folk, and demonically possessed sociopaths, misery comes easy. In Gloom, players control these misanthropic misfits. The goal? To make your characters as miserable as possible before allowing them the sweet respite of death. Along the way you’ll make other players’ characters horribly happy. Players narrate their characters’ misfortunes and mishaps, creating unique stories of suffering in each game. May the most miserable soul win!

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.
The award-winning gameplay uses unique transparent cards that stack on top of each other to conceal and reveal the Self-Worth scores from the cards below. The easy scoring and evocative, gloomy art are guaranteed to endlessly entertain players. The game ends when one entire family has shuffled off this mortal coil. The winner is the player with the lowest score, whose family was the most miserable in life!
