When the Elder Gods rise, mankind is doomed, and isn’t that delightful? Experience the crazy fun (and we mean that literally) of growing insanity in the face of inexplicable Lovecraftian creatures in Cthulhu Gloom. As in Gloom, your main object is to bring your family down the path of madness and misery before ending in delightfully dramatic deaths, while inflicting sanity and happiness on your opponents' families. The most miserable family wins the game.
Cthulhu Gloom can be played alone or combined with Gloom second edition and any of its expansions. The game includes four new Lovecraftian families, Modifiers, Untimely Deaths, Events, and Story cards.
Like Gloom second edition, Cthulhu Gloom features unique transparent cards that stack atop each other to hide and reveal the Self-Worth scores from the cards below. The easy scoring and evocatively squamous art are guaranteed to make players tragically happy.
The game ends when one entire family has shuffled off this mortal coil. The winner is the player whose deceased family members reached the greatest heights of insanity and misery.
Add Unpleasant Dreams Expansion (sold separately) for a 5th player family and unwanted guests that move from family to family!
