The sky is gray, the tea is cold, and a new tragedy lies around every corner … GLOOM is a deliciously dark series of games from Atlas Games where sorrow and suffering scores points.

The Game of Inauspicious Incidents & Grave Consequences.
In Gloom, you control the fate of an eccentric family of misfits. Your goal is sad, but simple: make your character suffer the greatest tragedies possible before helping them pass on to the well-deserved respite of death. Play cards with horrible mishaps like Pursued by Poodles or Swindled by Salesmen on your own characters, while trying to cheer your opponents' characters with happy occassions. May the most miserable soul win!
