Gloomier: A Night at Hemlock Hall Nears Kickstarter End

Atlas is wrapping a VERY successful Kickstarter

Gloomier: A Night at Hemlock Hall (Atlas Games)Only hours remain to back Keith Baker’s Gloomier: A Night at Hemlock Hall from Atlas Games. The game builds on the mechanics established in Gloom but expands greatly on the storytelling aspects. The Kickstarter campaign is over 3000% funded and you can reserve a copy of the core game for a $24.00 pledge. Or get the additional Glom Grief Case, along with the game, for a $49.00 pledge. The project ends April 8th with an expected delivery this October.

About the project:

The sky is darker, the tea is colder, and the worst is still to come…

This campaign includes these three gloomy goodies:

  • Gloomier: A Night at Hemlock Hall standalone card game
  • Gloom Grief Case deluxe storage box
  • The Gloom Chronicles campaign-style mini-expansion

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 two to five 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 A Night at Hemlock Hall expands the storytelling aspect of Gloom with new, specially-designed story prompts. And this full stand-alone game includes 6 new Stories and 14 new Guests that can be used with any edition of Gloom. So dare to enter Hemlock Hall, and see what delightful disaster awaits!
