Can your friends survive the Trenches of WWI? Check out the game that puts the power of Friendship to the test: The Grizzled

Hello BoLS Readers, AdamHarry here with a unique game – The Grizzled. It’s a Co-operative game that takes place in the trenches of World War I. Players take the role of a squad of friends sent off to war. Through a mix of cunning, leadership, inspiration and risk-taking – players have to survive long enough to reach peace. If too many players die, you all lose – but sacrifices will have to be made in order for peace to be attained…

Overall – I really like everything about this game. The mechanics are solid, the interplay between players and the “game” is really interesting, and the art work from French Artist Tignous is outstanding! Games are around 30 minutes – so it’s fairly quick and you can scale the difficulty up or down based on how comfortable you are with the game. So go check it out and see if your friends can survive the trenches!

The Grizzled $19.99
