Assault of the Giants, a New Dungeons & Dragons Board Game – Available Now
February 15, 2017

HILLSIDE, NJ – February 15, 2017 – 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.

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

WizKids is now offering two versions of the game, Standard (SUK: 72185) and Premium editions (SKU: 71616):

  • The Standard Edition (SKU: 72185) has single color, injection molded miniatures (MSRP: $79.99)

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
