Meaning behind the word ‘GIRI’
In Sanskrit, one of the oldest languages in the world, giri means “cloud”, “that which springs up”, while the noun gira means “language” or “speech”. The cloud motif represents an endless world of play and imagination created by the two players in the roles of Storytellers. With them, two to four players can participate in the game as Distractors who distract the Storytellers by changing the course of the story with their cards.
