I got to play two games of three player Gloom.
Since I was out of town without access to my laptop, it took some time to write these things up and most of the juicy details have already been forgotten.
However, one of the most beautiful love stories ever was told during second game.
Thumbelisa, the diminuitive diva had been an agent of foreign countries and she used the mobility of a circus as a way to hide. Eventually justice caught her and she was tried for a treason. During trial the prosecutor fell in love with Thumbelisa and instead of putting Thumbelisa to the death row, the judge declared prosecutor and Thumbelisa husband and wife!
I guess it was the spur of the moment, and marriage was a little troublesome in the end. Marriage was demanding too much of her attention, which resulted in Thumbelisa arranging things so that her husband died.
Acts of violence have a tendency of causing even more violence. Apparently the son of the prosecutor, who would now inherit his late father, either was rotten to the core and killed Thumbelisa out of pure, selfish greed or it was a win-win revenge.
Still better love story than Twilight?
