In the Gloom card game, you make your eccentric family of misfits suffer the greatest tragedies possible before helping them pass on to the well-deserved respite of death.
Unhappy Homes adds 55 transparent cards to your game, including morbid new Modifiers, Events and Untimely Deaths, and another family - the artistes of Le Canard Noir, whose creative endeavors always end in disaster. Also inside are 2 new card types: Residence and Mysteries.
When art lets you down, the Black Duck is there for you. This dingy cafe is home to a motley assortment of washed-up bohemians. Here the tormented painter Rosseau buys drinks for neurotic models and destitute poets, while a troubled actress and sickly courtesan compare notes across the way.
NEW RULES: Also included are five Residences with a light blue background behind their central illustration. These are each placed next to their related family at the start of the game.
New cards called Mysteries, which have a dark blue effects bar at the bottom, are also shuffled into the deck before play. A Mystery is the only card that can be placed on a Residence (and only a Residence), and can be placed on any Residence as either of your two plays. It gives that Residence's player a special effect and Pathos points that count toward his final Family Value. A Mystery remains even if the requirements for playing it are lost. You may discard a Mystery from your hand as a free play.
Note: Gloom: Unhappy Homes is an expansion for Gloom. A copy of the base game is necessary to play. Each of the three expansions for Gloom adds one more player, thus with all three expansions, up to seven players can play Gloom!
