Gloom

February 18, 2008 at 12:32 pm (Already Purchased, Toys, Under $50)

From BoingBoing.com comes the best game ever, Gloom. Read on for the description:

“The object of the game, in fact, is to make your characters as miserable as you possibly can. Each player has a family, a group of characters that they then play event cards on…

The really interesting thing about Gloom is the story-telling aspect of game play. Though not required, when you play an event card such as “Terrified by Topiary,” you may explain how this event occurs. Each character develops as more and more event cards are placed on it, so the character’s life story becomes increasingly unfortunate and, well, abnormal.”

Reminds me of Edward Gory, though i don’t know why.

I’ve wanted one of these things the very first time i saw a photo of it in my folk’s Standard Distributors (remember them?) and Sears catalogs. Actually i lusted over it but sadly, never received one for Xmas.

Tomy felt my pain and decided to resurrect these bad boys which are faithful to the 1982 originals.

My neighbors are gonna love me. That’s good because i hate them.

$44.97 / Amazon.com

<Purchased> – Playing it is like going back in time to when i was 8 years old- and fortunately i still haven’t forgotten how to cheat. 🙂
