Featured Game is The Grizzled!

The Grizzled is a cooperative card game about survival and friendship in the trenches during the first World War where players win or lose together. You can learn the rules by watching the video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=63W4EJE4EI0&t=

Each round, the 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.

I'll be teaching four people who are interested in playing but also feel free to bring your favorite games along and get a group together to teach, learn, and play. As always, I will be bringing in some past featured games and if you have any specific recommendations, put them in the comments!

Cheers!
