D&D Assault of the Giants Board Game is Out Now

dd-assault-of-the-giants-board-game-2WizKids has released the Assault of the Giants Board Game which 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.

Will you be able to restore the ordning? Find out on the tabletop today!

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):

Rock Paper Wizard is Available Now!

rock-paper-wizard-2WizKids has announced the release of Rock Paper Wizard, a fast-paced, high-energy card game that combines strategy, luck and a wee bit of hand coordination! Rock Paper Wizard gathers some of the most iconic spells from Wizards of the Coast’s popular Dungeons & Dragons fantasy roleplaying game for a spell casting challenge. The game is now available in North American retailers for $19.99.

In Rock Paper Wizard, 3 to 6 players take on the roles of wizards who must try to outwit their opponents in an epic race for loot!

Each player chooses their wizard’s spell and casts some magic by repeating one of the hand gestures found on the cards in front of them. Everyone says “Rock, Paper, Wizard” aloud, and upon saying “Wizard”, forms a hand gesture and points it towards a target. Each card describes the spell’s effect, which can push opponents towards the exit, advance themselves towards the hoard, or manipulate the coins that the wizards must collect to win.

The first wizard to collect 25 pieces of gold wins the game, but you’ll want to start right over and let the magic begin all over again!

Pick up Rock Paper Wizard today!

Dungeons & Dragons, Volo’s Guide to Monsters is Out Now

Wizards of the Coast has announced the release of the newest supplement to Dungeons & Dragons, Volo’s Guide to Monsters. In Volo’s Guide to Monsters, adventurers explore the breadth of D&D’s monsters in an immersive 224-page volume filled with beautiful illustrations and in-depth lore designed for the fifth edition. Volo’s Guide to Monsters provides something exciting for both players and Dungeon Masters and is now available online and at hobby stores and mass-market retailers across the country. Also, Volo’s Guide to Monsters will be released in a limited edition format exclusively available at core hobby stores that features an alternative-art cover beautifully illustrated by Hydro74.


The esteemed loremaster Volothamp Geddarm is back and he’s written a fantastical dissertation, covering some of the most iconic monsters in the Forgotten Realms. Unfortunately, the Sage of Shadowdale himself, Elminster, doesn’t believe Volo gets all the important details quite right. Don’t miss out as Volo and Elminster square off (academically speaking, of course) to illuminate the uninitiated on creatures both common and obscure. Uncover the machinations of the mysterious Kraken Society, what is the origin of the bizarre froghemoth, or how to avoid participating in the ghastly reproductive cycle of the grotesque vargouille.

Dungeon Masters and players will get some much-needed guidance planning their next ventures, traipsing about some dusty old ruin in search of treasure, lore, and let’s not forget … dangerous creatures whose horns, claws, fangs, heads, or even hides might comfortably adorn the walls of your trophy room. If you survive.
