Customer Reviews

.Really fun game. I love the layering aspect. It's different and unique. If I had one nitpicky problem, it's that I wish the families added more. It really makes no difference what family you use, it just depends on what characters you like better. I wish that some of the characters had their own abilities or something. Just to give it something extra. 4Gloom - Do you enjoy telling stories?I've played the first addition and when I saw that they had an updated/second edition - I had to grab it. You have to play with people willing to turn these cards into a story - that is when this game is the most fun! But there's always that player just tossing down cards, makes it a bit boring for those willing to take a bit of glee in the misfortune of the characters.A favorite of mine is the lurking butler though I could have sworn that there used to be a grave digger... But basically one of the cards is "had a horrible holiday" - and just reading out the character with the card is boring, but elaborating on just why that holiday was so horrible can make for some laughs. Then you can just build on the tail when more cards are played.This is definitely coming out after Xmas dinner. 4Dark but Adorable -- a fun, short but dynamic gameThis game is adorable -- in a creepy, macabre way. The artwork is stunning, and the whimsical treatment of the characters makes this a darkly ironic game that could otherwise feel depressing.The mechanic of the clear cards that slowly change the lives of the characters underneath is interesting, and the game play is quick. With two people you can play a round in less than 10 minutes -- with 4-5 players, a round may take about 20 minutes. It's a great "pallet cleanser" game if you're looking for something quick to play between longer games. It's also a fun conversation game if you have some friends over and want to just play a game while you still visit. It takes a hand or two to get the hang of it, but once you do, it's quite easy to just explain the rules to new players. 5Changed from 1 to 5 starsUPDATE: Changed from 1 star to 5.Emailed manufacturer of my issue on Friday 10/13/2017Received manufacturer response Monday 10/16/2017Well this is my public fumble. Usually, the back of a playing card is a full pattern. When I looked at the cards (the image I provided), I never thought to turn them over, because I saw the individual designs and assumed that was card face. The manufacturer got back to me quickly and said they believed I was looking at the back. They also said if not the case, they would replace. They were correct and the art and text I saw are for the back of the card, not the front.. Makes sense though, since much of the card is clear. It's a lot of fun when your group gets into telling a little story for each card.(Initial review)I just received this October 10th 2017. This is the exact item I ordered, as it is confirmed with a message when I go to this page. The box comes with two decks. The instructions show I should have cards with family members and cards that modify. I received neither. I have two card types. I have "Rest in peace," at the top (all have a crow on a skull as center art and various combinations of solid black dots on the sides), or are non-titled with solid black dots on the sides. There is no central art on the second type of any cards. There is no art within what should be circles, (not solid black dots.) on any card in the deck. 5Brings joy to the hearts of heartless peopleIf you re a person who enjoys schadenfreude or loved the Four Yorkshiremen sketch from Monty Python s Flying Circus, this is exactly the card game for you. Channel your inner Goth and pull up a chair for a fun time being miserable.Each player controls a family of unsavory or ill-presented characters and tries to make them as miserable as possible before killing them off in interesting and at times incredibly disturbing means. As your characters gain negative point modifiers, your opponents do their best to cheer them up - the fiends!! You have the opportunity to lift their characters spirits too, so you can t complain too much.The mechanics are easy to learn and the flow of the game is a quick but not dizzying pace. The real fun is coming up with reasons to do dastardly deeds to the denizens of your deck, attempting to approximate the alliterative aspects of the afflictions applied. What excuses will you and your friends come up with to explain the horrible events that traumatize children, dogs, old ladies, and even a Frankenstein s monster of a teddy bear?Although I thoroughly enjoy the game and it has decent replay value, I give the base set only four stars because the core set comes with only four families and a limited deck you ll come to be familiar with very quickly. Considering the low cost of the game, however, it s still an excellent value. 4Gloom 2nd addition is nothing short of a fun time. It was just a game that was ...Gloom 2nd addition is nothing short of a fun time. It was just a game that was recommended to me by amazon since I love to get board games for my family. So the first thing I did was start going through reviews to see how other people felt about the game. All of the reviews were very positive and it got me even more intrigued. SO the next thing i did was go to youtube to watch some videos of people explaining the game along with peoples personal reviews. Once i saw it the first thing i thought of was my oldest sons and how much they would absolutely love it. So I bought it and thank god for amazon prime because I got it right before the weekend when we took our road trip and what better way to spend time together rather than on their phone than playing a new game for a road trip. To say in the lease they freaking loved it, they were amazed of how horrible (in a good way) this game was. Then when we finally made to our destination i was able to jump in and play with them. They beat me a few times before I got a good handle of the game but its nice for them to went sometimes lol. I enjoyed it very much so. I don't want to spoil it by telling some of my secrets to beating them but they love it and I love it so no complaints coming from me. 5Look Online For Other DirectionsWe like this game a lot (it's actually my husband's favorite). Depending on who we are playing with we sometimes don't do the full storytelling version of the rules, but regardless it is a lot of fun. Without the storytelling aspect the games takes 15-25 minutes. My biggest complaint is that the rules are hard to figure out just from reading the enclosed directions - we ended up watching several tutorials online before we figured out exactly how we were supposed to play it. Still, it's a lot of fun. 4Great game and fun stories as long as everyone is into itAftering seeing this game on Tabletop, I had to have it. As a writer, reader, and lover of stories I immediately saw the potential in this game for a lot of funny stories and its replay ability. The object of this game is to make your family miserable by playing cards with negative self worth on them. These cards, which are clear and such a unique concept in and of themselves, have a modifier value and a brief explanation of what happened. Maybe your character went out in the woods for an adventure and was pierced by porcupines or maybe they found fame at a feast. Cards can raise or lower a character's value so typically you want to play negative value card on your own characters and a positive value card on the other player's characters. And many of the cards have additional things that happen when you play them. You may have to skip your draw phase, discard your entire hand, draw cards, or give them to other players. As a beginner you can play without these rules to make the game easier but it does add a bit of strategy once you're more familiar with the game.One of the pros and cons of this game is that it really depends on the people you're playing with. If you are in a group of likeminded friends that enjoy stories, have the same sense of humor, and are willing to sound a little bit silly while you're playing this game it is awesome. You can really develop some awesome intertwining stories until hearing what happens next is almost as good as winning the game. Or you can play with someone that doesn't share that enjoyment and tries to eliminate their characters as quickly as possible without really telling a story beyond what the card says. I've played both ways and the former is much more enjoyable.I would definitely recommend this game either way. I'm looking forward to picking up the expansions in the future and think this will be a staple on certain game nights. 5Great fun for families with a twisted sense of humorSo much fun. My family (ages 9, 12, 33, 40) has a very twisted sense of humor and loves dark comedies like The Addams Family. I read about Gloom when researching collaborative storytelling games (we're a D&D family) and bought this immediately - was not disappointed. Gloom is everything I hoped it would be. Box says age 13+ but we were all able to handle the rules and content out of the box. Can't wait to get the expansions! 5Bought it for Christmas for him so he could finally play at our own board game night and this was surprisingly fun. At first itBought this on a whim because my fiance saw this game in a friend's game night, but sadly never got to play. Bought it for Christmas for him so he could finally play at our own board game night and this was surprisingly fun. At first it feels overwhelming and intimidating because of all the instructions, yet once game play begins you realize you get to have fun creative ways to mess up your friend's game play and attempt to advance your own. The idea is you have a family that you are slowly killing off all the members of but you have to create a story based on the cards you have to make them die as miserable as possible. The player to kill the entire family off wins. Now players can make events happen to make your characters less miserable or make their deaths irrelevant, so it fun hearing how your friends try to tie up the loose ends of the stories you have already started. I recommend this game for people who actually like playing RPG type games, but it still works well with players who are not into RPG games because their stories are just a little more brief, but they easily get into to. 5
