I really think there needs to be more focus on WWI. Much of the world as we know it today comes from that conflict. Thankfully, there are games like The Grizzled. Speaking of which, CMON Limited has announced that they are purchasing the game from Sweet Games. Along with that, they’ve announced...

I’m a huge WWI buff. To me, no other event of the 20th century more-defined the world we currently live in than that. So I love games based on it, as it helps others remember that the conflict existed (as it’s often overshadowed by other events). The Grizzled is one such game. Now, the ex...

Last year CMON Inc. brought us the English version of The Grizzled, a WWI-themed card game of squad survival. It’s right in my wheelhouse for favorite types of games, as it’s quick to set up and play, has some cool artwork, and the theme being WWI I really like. Well, now I’m going ...

While WWII might get the majority of documentaries, movies, and games (video games, tabletop games, and other such), I always preferred learning about WWI. If I weren’t doing TGN right now, I’d be finishing up a graduate degree in history, quite possibly studying WWI. It really was the fi...

While WWII is certainly more written and talked about, I personally favor studying WWI. If I were still working on an advanced history degree, I’d possibly be doing my research on it in some form. It really set up the entire 20th century and basically created warfare as we know it today. WWI is...
