In Giants you play a Clan Chief during the Golden Age of Easter Island - the time of scuplting and erecting the giant statues or Moaïs. Your clan is in competition with the others and your prestige depends on the sculpting and transportation of more imposing Moaïs than the other clans. Each of your Figurines represents a group of men and every turn, you will choose which part of your population is dedicated to sculpting Moaïs and which part transports the statues, often in cooperation with other players.
The transportation of statues from the quarries to the Ahus (the stone platforms) is done using Figurine paths and sometimes using wooden logs for assistance.
You may also use your influence, represented by the Tribe Markers, in order to select the best statues and to mark with your colour, the statues that you are not able to transport during your turn. You can also count on your Sorcerer to help you as he possesses many great powers and on the strength of your Chief. You may also call upon the powerful incantations stocked on the engraved Rongo tablets.
The winner is the player that earns the most points, based the position and the size of the statues erected by the player's clan at the end of the game.
Giants comes with a beautifully-illustrated board and a set of sculpted tribal figurines, Moai statues and headdresses.
