Assault of the Giants Board Game is now available throughout North America!

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 need to command armies of giants as they wage war throughout northwest Faerûn. Order your giants to assault small folk villages and cities to score points and secure resources including food, artifacts, ore, and runes.


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, storm giants seek to restore their lost monarch, King Hekaton. Cloud giants search for an ancient dragon treasure trove, while hill iants seek an abundance of food with which to feed their massive monarch, Chief Guh.

Contents include 12 Giants miniatures, measuring from approximately 60mm to more than 90mm in height, and three Giantslayers!

    Interesting that WotC is having Wizkids make their board games now. That must mean that it wasn’t lucrative enough for them to do it in house (w/Hasbro).
