A couple weeks ago Jerry Holkins introduced the "C-Team" audience to a game called Giants and Halflings. At first glance, the game looks to be a little unfair for the Giants. However, after some investigation I can confidently say this game is a complicated way for a giant to lose his stuff. In this post I'll explore precisely how bad an idea it is for a giant to battle two halflings.


Giants and Halflings is an asymmetrical dice game, with one player (the giant) rolling a D10 and the other (the halflings) rolling two D6's. Thematically, the point is for the halflings to hit the giant in the knee without getting stomped or jumping into his mouth.
