It’s not uncommon to have area control games where armies battle each other, whether its infantry and tanks or humanoid high fantasy figures.  WizKids is taking a different approach with Assault of the Giants, where you take control of a race giants to conquer the land.

WizKids, the industry leader in quality pre-painted plastic miniatures and publisher of premium tabletop games and accessories, is pleased to announce that the 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.
