Characters in the 6 player game:
Ebenezer Stooge – Jacob Barley’s business partner
A wealthy white haired miser, Ebenezer’s clothes are extremely worn and nearly as old as he is.
Bella Deball – An eligible spinster
A handsome woman, Bella still has the ability to turn heads in her not-so-little black numbers.
Bob Scratchitt – Chief clerk to Jacob and Ebenezer.
Struggling to make ends meet, Bob dresses as smartly as he can in regularly mended hand-me-downs of varying size.
Clara Net – Ebenezer’s niece.
Young, attractive and with a liking for the trappings of high society, Clara Net has exceptional taste in clothing and looks stunning.
Fred Nephew – Jacob Barley’s godson
A smart banker, Fred Nephew is always in a well cut suit.
Wanda Scratchitt – Bob Scratchitt’s wife
A comely but not unattractive woman, Wanda spends a lot of time engaged in domestic tasks and usually wears an apron.

Tiny Tom – Son of Bob and Wanda Scratchitt
Crippled since birth, Tiny Tom walks with crutches and wears his father’s clothes which have been patched and cut down to size.
Christine Present – Jacob Barley’s housekeeper.
With an apron and a work-worn dress, Christine Present is a cheery bustling individual.
Additional characters in the 10 player game:
Mr. Fuzzywig – Business acquaintance of Mr. Barley.
Smartly dressed and full of energy and plans, Mr. Fuzzywig enjoys company and a few too many tipples.
Mrs. Dibley – Jacob Barley’s laundress
In faded clothing which is always spotlessly clean, Mrs. Dibley is always ready for work.
Additional characters in the 12 player game:
Nick Wilkins – Apprentice to Barley and Stooge.
Lean, and paid even less than Bob Scratchitt, Nick only just manages to scratch together some suitable business clothing.
