Gloom of Thrones Deluxe Edition at a Glance

Deluxe Gloom of Thrones includes the same cards and rules as the base game, plus these delightful extras to cheer up your opponents:

  • 4 beautiful full-color player mats featuring each family’s residence, crest, and motto, with a clear plastic tray on top to hold each Character’s stack of Modifier cards in place without sliding. Playmat art is printed on chipboard that slots into the plastic trays. Designed by GameTrayz.
  • A satisfying metal Porcelain Throne token by Campaign Coins. Metal, not porcelain. Cutting-edge technology, without any edges that actually cut you.
  • A deluxe box to hold your dragon eggs, or player mats, whichever you prefer. Box insert (also by GameTrayz) serves as a draw and discard pile during play. Deluxe box also comes with a horrible surprise. Dragon eggs not included.

Also available: Gloom of Thrones, Foot of the Ruler Pin, Gloom of Thrones Lanyard, and Porcelain Throne Token

About Gloom of Thrones

Gloom of Thrones spreads the misery and suffering of Gloom to the ill-fated land of dead monarchs, dead knights, dead brothers, dead sisters, dead heirs, dead grandmothers, dead chambermaids, and almost-dead bastards.

Plague your family with horrible mishaps like being Seduced by a Sibling or Tumbled from a Tower, all while filling the lives of the other noble families with happy events like weddings and family reunions that will raise their Self-Worth score. The player with the lowest-scoring, most tragedy-afflicted family wins!

“The blending of innuendo, creative naming, and mechanics pokes masterful fun of the GoT property.”
- Brian Lewis

Gameplay Basics

In Gloom of Thrones, each player has a family of five Characters. Players try to make their own families the most miserable, while cheering up the other players' families.

Characters become sad or happy primarily by having Modifier cards played on them. Each Modifier affects the Self-Worth score of the Character it's played on. Players also play and discard Event cards for various immediate effects.

As the game continues, the Characters are killed off one by one, as Untimely Death cards are played on them. When one entire family has succumbed to Untimely Deaths, the game ends. Self-Worth scores are then tallied, and the most miserable player wins the game.
