Designed for 3­6 players, Assault ofthe Giants challenges players to command one of the six types ofgiants and claim the right to rule over all giantkind. Command giantsand assault settlements to score points and secure importantresources, including food, treasure, ore, and runes.

Thisallows players to recruit new giants, send them out to attacksettlements and other giants, and also to pursue special agendasbased upon their race. For example, the Storm Giants seek torestore their lost monarch, King Hekaton. The Cloud Giants seek anancient dragon treasure trove, and the Hill Giants seek anabundance of food with which to feed their massive monarch, ChiefGuh.In Assault of the Giants players send their giants out to wage waron each other and the small folk, but the game’s real strategy lies ineach player’s ability to pursue their giant race’s unique agenda, notonly through combat but also through clever cardplay.
