Gloom: Circular Storytelling, Death and Dismemberment

Gloom: Circular Storytelling, Death and Dismemberment

Mister Giggles is a clown. He's also a skeleton. As such, his challenges as an entertainer of children are legion. In the pursuit of his craft he's overcome many hardships, suffered many defeats. Not the least of which was that one time, when trying a new act, juggling poodles, the hungry, little dogs set upon him, gnawing his bones and forcing him to flee his tent. It's been a hard-knock life for Mister Giggles, but having fled to the hills (away from the poodles) and had a moment to clear his head, hear the roar of the crowd from the distance, see the far-off glow of the footlights and smell the cotton candy, he's realized once again that the circus is his home. His heart (or what serves him for one) fills as he experiences a brief moment of contentment, and I, as the player of the game Gloom, earn several points. I am now losing.

This game sounds awesome. I'm going to have to see if I can find it anywhere...

At the Atlas games website (link in the second paragraph of the article) you'll find a "retailer locator" link, which should set you up. If not, BoardGameGeek.com sells Gloom.

I bought the game at my local games and hobby store.
