This is an expansion for, and requires Gloom core game to play.
In the Gloom card game, you make your eccentric family of misfits suffer the greatest tragedies possible before helping them pass on to the well-deserved respite of death. Just mix the 55 transparent cards in this set together with your copy of Gloom to add morbid new Modifiers, Events, and Untimely Deaths, and a new family of intrepid explorers who've faced misfortune across the globe. These days Colonel Bumpersnoot is really more of a bargain hunter, while Lady Bumpersnoot struggles with high society -- but she always loves to have guests for dinner. Their Towering Treehouse is included as a Residence card to use with the Unhappy Homes expansion.
Unfortunate Expeditions introduces Expeditions into the game. An Expedition's rules affect all players as long as it's in play. The treehouse-dwelling Bumpersnoots also enable an additional player to join a game. The second edition includes new and larger packaging (with side-by-side half-decks), rules fixes, timing icons, reminder cards, and more; plus it's fully compatible with the first edition game and supplemements.
