What comes in the box?

With the release of Dune only a few weeks away we thought we would give you a sneak peek of what you will be receiving with your copy of the game!

Scroll down and have a look, and don’t forget to Pre-Order Now!!

The Game Board

First up, we have the actual game board. This map of Arrakis is where a lot of the action takes place and it is a great size for all players around the table to easily reach. The board includes all the different regions of Dune as well as the number of spice that could appear each turn, which helps for planning your strategy and moving your forces.

There are also spaces for the Tleilaxu Tanks and Spice bank, as well as a handy turn and phase counter.

The Rulebooks

Two rulebooks come with the game. A quick start guide, which acts as both a reference and easy entry point. And the complete rules, for both the basic and advanced version of the game.

If you want a closer look you can download both now!

Faction Reference Cards

There are six faction specific reference cards included with DUNE. These give each player an easy way to see any special rules their faction has as well as their starting resources.

Faction Screens

The box also contains six faction screens. To keep your secrets (and your spice!) hidden away from prying eyes.

Leader Tokens

A key part of DUNE is managing your leaders as you fight across Arrakis. Each faction has five unique leaders for a total of 30 leader tokens. These leaders are characters from the book itself and fans will recognise many familiar faces.

Troop Tokens

And where would your leaders be without troops to command? Each faction has X troop token for a total of X troops that can be all fighting across the desert to the next Spice blow.

Some factions have special troop tokens that play a part in the advanced version of the game, such as the Bene Gesserit Advisors or the Emperor’s elite Sardaukar troops.

Battle Wheels

DUNE is a game of diplomacy, betrayal… and conquest.

In the box you will find two battle wheels, these are used for resolving combat between players as well as determining the movement of the always threatening storm.

Special Tokens

You will also find a number of special tokens including, the storm, a turn marker, the destroyed shield wall, the pieces representing the prophesied kwisatz haderach, and of course the mighty Sahi-Hulud, the sand worm.

Card Decks

The box includes a number of different card decks to pull from. Some are faction specific, such as the Bene Gesserit prophecy cards, and the House Atreides kwisatz haderach tracker.

Others are for all players to draw from such as the treachery and traitor decks. While the storm and spice blow decks determine in game events. Finally the alliance deck acts as a reference and reminder of who your friends are.

Spice Tokens

Finally, of course, there are 144 spice tokens to fight over included in the box. The most valuable substance in the universe and the ultimate reason so many factions have converged on Dune!

“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.”
