#5 is not just #5 on my list. It is also the game that I dubbed my hidden gem of 2015. This is a game where soldiers have to work together to support each other in order to make it through the great war. Unlike other war games, however, The Grizzled is not about fighting. It is about come out of the war intact mentally.
The honorable mention also deals with theme and mechanism, as well as dealing with problems communicating when “just tell them” is not an option. The honorable #5 is Mysterium.
