Dune Imperium

Dune: Imperium is a 2020 strategy game inspired by the Dune franchise, and it is designed for 1-4 players. The game combines elements of deck-building, worker placement, and hidden-information mechanics, and it takes between 60-120 minutes to play. Players take on the role of leaders of one of the Great Houses of the Landsraad, and must raise their banners and marshal their forces and spies to fight for control of Arrakis - Dune, a desert planet.

Players start the game with a unique leader card and a deck identical to their opponents, and must use cards to send agents to certain spaces on the board, where they can gain resources, and influence the political factions: The Emperor, the Spacing Guild, the Bene Gesserit, and the Fremen. Players must also use their cards to fight their rivals in combat and acquire precious cards to build their decks, which is the main way of gaining power in the game. Persuasion is used to acquire more cards and Swords are used to fight for rewards. The objective of the game is to lead your House to victory by managing your resources and navigating the political factions shrewdly.
