One player has three dwarfs and the other has one giant.
Firstly, the giant is placed on one of the top sites. After this first move of the giant, it is the dwarfs' move.
Each piece can move between the different sites only if they are connected by an edge. The dwarfs can move only forwards or sideways, the giant can move in all the directions.
