This week on the LTM Gaming Podcast, we play Gloom! Gloom is a tabletop card game in which you control a set of characters. You play modifier cards on those characters with the aim of getting them to the lowest possible negative value and then killing them off, ending play. Any player may play modifier cards on any character, not just their own.
While Gloom could be played as a simple card placement game, our group prefers to play it as a collective storytelling game. We base our descriptions on the cards played, but the story grows from there. The descriptions and story are the best part of Gloom! We always have a good time playing it.
