benjoshua wrote in Character Chronicle Cards:... Since Judges Guild was devised to work with multiple platforms/worlds/campaigns, perhaps it is short for "Game," but I would think the layout artist would go ahead and spell out the entire word.  The layout indeed suggests it is an attribute stat, but not everything in the world makes sense.  I'll be curious if the answer is ever revealed.   :?

This is the thought I had as well. But not only is it weird looking in layout, but why wouldn't that be one of the first things at the top of the sheet?
But yeah, I'd be interested in what others think too!

I think GAM is actually a stat for Gambling.  I could be wrong but I thought one of the Guidelines booklets detailed this as a stat or something.  I will look thru my stuff tonight.

I found the reference I was thinking of in the original City State of the Invincible Overlord.  This is what it states on page 4:  Gambling is done by exceeding 0-100% dice roll of establishment game plus house odds.  Players have 'Gaming Skill' +3-18%.  So this may be, and I say may be, the source of the GAM on the CC Cards.  Cheers!

Huh. I'd say that's a pretty good reference. Thank you!

Looks like I asked about that GAM stat about five years ago in this thread!  8O

Good to have the question finally answered!
