Briefest Write-Ups in history!!

Hello all! It has been a hectic and fun summer and well… I just HAVE to get a ton of new stuff onto the site… and so… the next 8-10 write ups will be my shortest ever. ๐Ÿ˜… Sorry for the lack of poetic ramblings and video links and such!

It’s just that SO many backlogged campaigns fulfilled in an incredibly short time… and well… like I said… summer of fun!! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜‚๐ŸŽ‰

Bundle details

This Upstart bundle includes three tasty items! Gloomier: A Night at Hemlock Hall, the Gloom Griefcase, and the Gloom Chronicles! Let the Gloom adventure continues!!! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

Anyway, this is, as always, precisely what backers of the original Kickstarter campaign received with any and all stretch goals included. Any add-ons or other goodies that aren’t mentioned here are not included with this one.

Of course, I don’t think there was all that much else in this specific campaign (there is obviously a LOT more Gloom goodness out there, however… I just don’t have it in this bundle)… hehe… but in any event, if there was… I didn’t snag it – sorry!

…just so there’s no confusion. ๐Ÿ˜‰โค๏ธ

As always, please reach out with any questions!! I’m almost always available unless I’m driving or asleep! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿš—๐Ÿ’ค

Kickstarter Campaign Link – to check and see all the juicy exclusives!

I do want to at least post a link to the original Kickstarter campaign… in case you haven’t heard of this one somehow. ๐Ÿ˜‰ The link can be found HERE.

Again… sooo sorry, everyone! I’ll get back in the swing at some point… argh! ๐Ÿดโ€โ˜ ๏ธ

Gloomier: A Night at Hemlock Hall! Plus the Gloom Griefcase to store all your Gloom goodiesโ€ฆ AND the Gloom Chronicles! Yessssssss please! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŽ‰

There’s mystery and murder afoot at Hemlock Hall, but this isn’t a story about the dashing detective โ€” it’s the tale of the unfortunate victims. Compete to tell the most tragic tale, while keeping your opponents healthy and alive. Will you be detained in the dungeons or be poisoned while pruning?

Gloomier uses transparent cards, allowing a character’s story โ€” and score โ€” to evolve as cards are stacked upon them. Only the information that’s currently visible counts. Modifier cards tell of terrible happenstances and give characters negative points. Untimely death cards end a character’s depressing tale. You win if your family is the most miserable when an entire family is killed off.

You don’t have to have any prior experience to play Gloomier, but if you are familiar with Gloom, you’ll find six new stories and fourteen new guests that can be used with any edition of Gloom! So come to Hemlock Hall, and see what delightful misery awaits!

And a bit about The Gloom Chronicles…

Take a journey through the miserable world of GLOOM!

In Gloom, you and your friends weave tales of woe. But where does the story begin? Each of the twenty cards in The Gloom Chronicles sets a unique foundation for a game of Gloom, and variant rules add new challenges to the story. You can choose a card at random, or you can start at the beginning and explore the ongoing fate of your family through an extended campaign. Your story begins with the Unhappy Birthdayโ€ฆ but will your next game of Gloom involve a tragic train ride, or will you end up at the infamous Worldโ€™s Unfair?

The Gloom Chronicles is an expansion that can enhance any game of Gloom. Narrative prompts give players a unified foundation for their stories, while variant rules challenge new and experienced players alike. The Unhappy Birthday awaits: where will your Gloom Chronicle end?
