The Book and Lyrics of "The Gothic Game Musical". The Gothic Game Musical is a darkly comic musical based on the classic board game "The Gothic Game", recently updated (2021) under the title "Damnation; The Gothic Game". A wedding party makes the mistake of hiring the caterers from hell, and are transported to a crumbling Gothic castle, haunted by grisly supernatural beings, with Dracula occupying the vault. There they find they have become characters in The Gothic Game, and only one gets out alive.
