Misery and mysteries abound at Hemlock Hall, the imposing estate of Lord Wellington-Smythe and his eccentric family of misfits. When you’re invited inside for an evening’s entertainment, what could possibly go wrong? Will you Cuddle with Cats or Thwart a Thief? Will you Brawl Over Brandy or Fall Prey to the Plague? At Hemlock Hall, awful amusements become deadly diversions with the flip of a card.
Gloomier: A Night at Hemlock Hall is a darkly humorous stand-alone competitive storytelling card game for 2-4 players. To win, you make your characters suffer the greatest tragedies possible before passing on to the well-deserved respite of death. The player with the most negative score wins. And in Gloomier, the winner gets the final word: Who WAS the murderer? How DID the heist end? You decide!
Gloomier features transparent plastic cards, allowing a character’s score — and story — to evolve as cards are stacked on top of each other. You don’t need prior experience to play Gloomier, but Gloom fans will find that Gloomier expands the storytelling aspect of Gloom with specially designed story prompts. And this full standalone game includes 6 new Stories and 14 new Guests that can be used with any edition of Gloom! So come to Hemlock Hall, and see what delightful disaster awaits!
