Product Description

The Grizzled is a fast-paced cooperative hand management card game for 2-5 players recreating survival in the trenches of WWI.

A best seller in Europe, The Grizzled is an elegant game of avoiding threats and leading a team, and is regarded as one of the finest cooperative games ever made. Featuring beautiful art by French artist Tignous, The Grizzled’s outstanding art is the perfect complement to its message of peace and enduring friendship. Planning, teamwork, and a little luck are the tools you’ll need to win this cooperative game.

Each round, the current team leader will choose how many cards every player draws. Then, going around the table, players must either play a card in their hand or back out of the mission. Each card represents either threats to the team (such as mortar shells and weather conditions) or negative personality traits (such as frightened or obsessive). At the end of the round, more cards are added to the draw deck. The game ends only if the players can deplete the draw deck as well as their hands without letting time run out.

If one threat shows up too many times, the team fails the mission. The team must play their threats correctly in order to gain any progress. However, most of the information in a players hand remains secret throughout the game.

1 review for The Grizzled

  1. Rated 4 out of 5

    The Grizzled is a beautiful game with a coherent theme that achieves what it sets out to do.

    Everything about the game is beautiful from the cartoon style (think Hergé’s Tintin, to the atmosphere it creates and the cohesive way it brings your band of brothers together to overcome insurmountable obstacles.

    Expect moments of tension, desperate plays and near misses as your group fight the uphill battle. With all that said while this game is not overly difficult it does make you work for it.

    This is a great game.
