Assault of the Giants

950 SEK650 SEK

Based on the story first presented in the Storm King’s Thunder adventure from Dungeons & Dragons, Assault of the Giants is a new board game designed by Andrew Parks for 3-6 players. Players will command armies of giants as they wage war throughout northwest Faerûn. Order your giants and assault opponents and settlements to score points and secure important resources, including food, treasure, ore, and runes.

Each player issues commands to his or her giants in the form of command cards (recruit, move, attack, pillage, and so on). This allows players to recruit new giants, send them out to attack settlements and other giants, and also to pursue special agendas based upon their race.
Each player represents a different giant race (hill giants, stone giants, frost giants, fire giants, cloud giants, or storm giants), each with a different agenda. For example, the Storm Giants seek to restore their lost monarch, King Hekaton. The Cloud Giants seek an ancient dragon treasure trove, and the Hill Giants seek an abundance of food with which to feed their massive monarch.

In Assault of the Giants players send their giants out to wage war on each other and the small folk, but the game’s real strategy lies in each player’s ability to pursue their giant race’s unique agenda, not only through combat but also through clever cardplay.
