What Price Glory. It is December 1916, in the recovering fortified town of Verdun, France. You and other members of the French Infantry have finally repelled the Imperial German Army after 11 months of tense fighting. Now you are enjoying a brief respite, but elsewhere in France, the Great War rages on.  When you are called upon, will you rejoin the fighting? What Price Glory was inspired by the 1924 play of the same name, by Laurence Stallings and Maxwell Anderson.

What Price Glory is a card based, GM-less, table top role playing game, based on the For The Queen SRD, for 2 to 6 players. Using the card prompts, answer the questions in character, pass the card to another play, or X-Card the question and move on to the next. When you finally come to the last card, answer the question of whether you will rejoin the fighting.

Just finished playing it.  Great game.  I would recommend shuffling the "Lion calls" card into the last third of the deck rather than leaving it at the bottom of the deck like we did.
I might also include a card explaining a bit more about the 2 Generals if someone wants more historical accuracy.
All small issues aside, I think this is the best Descended from the Queen game i've played besides the original For the Queen

Thanks. Glad you had enjoyed the game. Here's to more fun games in the future. 

I tried this with 15-16 year olds in a History class. They loved it. They where able to use some of their knowledge about life in the trenches to add flavour to the story. They were still chatting about their characters when they were leaving.

I am so glad that your student enjoyed it. And props to another teacher making the classroom a great fun place to learn.
