Game Arrivals: Week of Aug. 24th - 29th


Come in and see this week's game arrivals.




Fans of Gloom and Munchkin will enjoy Munchkin Gloom, a new version of the card game Gloom.
Munchkin Gloom
Atlas Games

The world of Munchkin can also be a miserable place - the backstabbing, discovery by ducks of doom, and being dined on by dragons. Heroes delve too deep, plummet down pits, and lose their loot. And that's before they die. 

In Munchkin Gloom, players steer their Munchkins through terrible travails and troublesome tribulations until  inevitably — they perish in pain.





Gloom is a light-hearted card game where you don’t want a happy ending if you want to win the game.  It’s all about making your eccentric family of misfits more miserable than your opponents.  You’ll play cards of mishaps on your family members to lower their Self-Worth scores while bestowing happy occasions and positive points on everyone else.  The more miserable your family members are when they die, the better chance you have of winning.

Adventure Time Fluxx
Looney Labs
Also new in from Looney Labs is Adventure Time Fluxx, the latest in their line of themed Fluxx card games.

Join Finn, Jake, and all their friends for some ever-changing fun.  Draw a char, play a card, and change the rules to battle candy zombies, and maybe even floop the pig.


It all begins with one basic rule: Draw one card, Play one card. You start with a hand of three cards... add the card you drew to your hand, and then choose one card to play, following the directions written on your chosen card. As cards are drawn and played from the deck, the rules of the game change from how many cards are drawn, played or even how many cards you can hold at the end of your turn.
