Overview

A Barnes & Noble exclusive Edition! Contains 3 exclusive miniatures: The Storm, The Worm and the Atomic Explosion.
Imagine you can control the forces of a noble family, guild, or religious order on a barren planet which is the only source for the most valuable substance in the known universe.

Imagine you can rewrite the script for one of the most famous science fiction books of all time. Welcome to the acclaimed 40-year-old board game which allows you to recreate the incredible world of Frank Herbert’s DUNE.

In DUNE you will become the leader of one of six great factions. Each wishes to control the most valuable resource in the universe - melange, the mysterious spice only found at great cost on the planet DUNE. As Duke Leto Atreides says “All fades before melange. A handful of spice will buy a home on Tupile. It cannot be manufactured, it must be mined on Arrakis. It is unique and it has true geriatric properties.” And without melange space travel would be impossible. Only by ingesting the addictive drug can the Guild Steersman continue to experience visions of the future, enabling them to plot a safe path through hyperspace.

Who will control DUNE? Become one of the characters and their forces from the book and . . . You decide!

This is a re-release of the classic Avalon Hill game from 1979; players of the previous version will notice some streamlining of the game by the replacement of the notepads with additional cards to simplify notekeeping. The game plays best with four to six players, it combines diplomacy, treachery, and military action. It is not overly complex, a turn of two will be enough to familiarize most players. There is a polite brutality to the manner of play; combat is costly to the victor as well as the vanquished. All factions are opposed to one another at the start, though there are opportunities to form alliances. The gameboard itself provide hazards with an ever present storm and the unexpected arrival of sand worms that can shred armies left exposed. The planet provides spice, which is the currency and the reason for the game "He who controls the spice,controls the universe.
