Final Exam Stress? Try a little 'Gloom'

By December 3, 2012

Follow me on:

Gloom card game (Photo by J Burrell A bit of "Gloom" and hilarious doom sound like fun? This card game may be the perfect antidote to exam week stress - and it's sized just right for tucking in a care package or Christmas stocking for your college kid, especially if he or she was a childhood fan of Lemony Snicket.

The idea? Players compete to make their characters - a dubious family of five - as miserable as possible by terrorizing them with topiaries or menacing mice, while making their opponents' "families" as happy as possible. It's the perfect game for a pair of stressed-out roommates - or a quartet of them - to play. Add it to your holiday shopping list.
