I decided to try a more ambitious game of 'Giants' today, running four monsters. I used Tyrranix and Gakura again, using their stats from the rules (Atomic Reptile and Gigantic Gorilla). I added Mothra (again, there's a version in the book) and Gigan (using stats from a post on the Giants page on Facebook.
I set up a city on a 2' x 2' board, and ran the game with all distances halved. The scenario was a simple Last Monster Standing one. The buildings were just there to get in the way.
Gigan and Tyrranix approached each other along a street. The piece of card is a bridge. I need to make a suitable bridge. Tyrranix started the fight with an atomic blast, and Gigan responded with a laser shot. Neither monster did any damage to the other.
You can see that some of the buildings had been destroyed at this point.
Gakura set to work on Gigan, knocking him back into buildings and through the resulting rubble. Mothra was knocked off her perch as well.
Tyrranix took the opportunity to hit all three of the other monsters with an atomic blast sweep.
Mothra's stinger is a very useful attack; she finished off three damaged monsters with it to win. Tyrranix's atomic breath was surprisingly good too; it has the Sweep option which allows it to hit multiple targets. Gakura is nice and basic, with two useful melee attacks that inflict steady amounts of damage over time, and a powerful knockback option. I never really got a feel for how to play Gigan, though. He has an attack like Mothra's stinger, that can convert stress to damage, but none of the monsters had enough stress to make it worth using before Gigan fell. The laser isn't a bad attack though, but Gigan was quickly hemmed in and never really got a chance to use ranged attacks.
Anyway, it was good fun, and I have a better feel for the rules now.
