The Spice Must Flow – DUNE – A Game of Conquest, Diplomacy & Betrayal.
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 players become the leader of one of the six great factions. Each wishes to control the most valuable resource in the universe – mélange, the mysterious spice only found at great cost on the planet DUNE. As Duke Leto Atredes says “All fades before mélange. A handful of spice will buy you 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 mélange 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.
