Fun and easy co op game
This is a fun little co op game that doesn’t take much time to get into and play, played this a few times during a hurricane with no power and it was nice being able to play a game that doesn’t have much set up or complicated instructions. This is now in my hurricane kit cause it’s small and quick to play. I’ve only played with 4 people so I’m not sure how it would be otherwise but our experience was good.

Embrace the tension
What makes this card co-op unique is that it really is a challenge to survive and win. Theres numerous difficulty levels to increase the games overall tension. This theme really sells itself for me each time I've played. This is a more heady game where each player really has to take their time playing the best card for his/her team. The tension is fun, and victory actually pretty good within this little co-op card game.

Can Friendship Survive The Great War? Maybe not...
This is a low cost, thematically awesome, cooperative game.

Set in WWI, you take on the role of a French Soldier battling in the trenches. Your goal, you and your friends must strive to reach the calm blue skies of peace before you become memorialized on a monument, or one of you dies in battle.

This is a co-op card game, where risk must be measured against reward. It is loads of fun, very fast, and very difficult. My group first played with 5 players, and even in Novice mode we lost and lost and lost... and lost. The game is very difficult at 5 players. We never won with five. We did finally win with 4 players. Of course this was still on Novice mode...

A very good game.
The biggest down side, the rules are not the best written.

If coops are your thing, then this is a must have
Let's just get this out of the way, this game is only $16! I am a big fan of coops and think they are a nice balance to have in your collection. This game is wonderful, tense, and satisfying with every play. I do agree that higher player counts are optimal, but 2 player is still enjoyable. The art is a quirky style and very enjoyable.

Amazing artwork, interesting theme, but poor at two players
I normally am not that big of a fan of coop games. But the no speaking rule of the Grizzled helps to make sure everyone is on even ground. The artwork is fantastic and helps to drive the theme home. I do find the two player variant to be disappointing, and I don't think it succeeds the way the game is designed. That said, higher player counts specifically at 4, feel really good and the game is tense and enjoyable. If you have the group to play it I would pick it up. If you only play 2 player games, I would pass on this one.

Can't recommend this strongly enough
This game is a gorgeous, thoughtful, and enjoyable take on the cooperative genre. Every mission is stuffed full of this empathetic-deduction thing, where every decision is based on hidden information. It really brings the group together.

Fantastic components, great artwork, evocative theme. A home run, really.

This is a fantastic and possibly best cooperative game out there. The game revolves around the fights of World War I and keeping the group together through the battles and losses. While at first it may seem simple, the game quickly creates a lot of tough decisions that the group must decide how to face without suffering a defeat. A solid game with a price tag under $20 definitely makes this one worth getting.
