Dune is my favorite board game. Rex is a better and cleaner design. Yes, it is better!!! It does not have the theme of Dune, but the game mechanics are great, streamlined, and very very effective. Kudos to the designer! Still Dune because of its theme stands on its own in a higher level than Rex.

Extremely fun, very deep game. Looking forward to playing this lots.

Makes me wish I was alive when the Dune board game came out.

What this loses in theme (compared to Dune) it makes up for in being slightly faster, slightly more accessible, and still capturing 99% of what made Dune a great game.

A very simple and tense (no luck) combat system, a simple set of resource management rules that create a deep and interesting economy, and intricately balanced factions with fun special powers make for a great gaming experience. I'm very happy FFG reprinted this so more people can experience Dune.

Our first game with multiple new players and a full rules explanation lasted just over two hours. I'm pretty sure you can whittle this down to 90 minutes if everyone knows how to play and things move fairly fast. The two hour mark will be reserved for games that come down to turn eight and the special victory conditions.

I have not played with the new betrayal cards but I am excited to try them.

Love this game. I'm not going to say this game is better than Dune, they're both different in their own ways. I will say the changes made are positive, and the components are beautiful.

Asymmetrical powers, bidding for cards, alliances with combo powers that prevent backstabbing, nice battle system, battles in every round... Every game is a different experience, usually depending on number of players. Games with 6 players are the best BUT they can last for 4 hours and that is the main reason why I don't play it often. And some people really hate this game because it's not well balanced so you need to find right group for the best experience.

Second Review: Played this game for the second time this weekend with four players. This is the best board game experience I've ever had thus far, and have updated it to a 10.

I've read some of the reviews that hate this game and I find that while some of their issues may have merit, I find that you need to have SERIOUS gamers who are also INTERESTED in playing this game. If you have someone who is just playing to play, this will affect the entire gameplay.


First Review: Really enjoyed playing this game. Played it once, and ended up playing it wrong (what do you expect when Fantasy Flight is still allowed to write rulebooks).

Much fun. The very type of game I love to play.

Simply my favorite game. Area control, backstabbing, little to no luck involved, variable player powers, complex, yet fairly easy to teach. Lots of suspense and back-and-forth combat. This game is a gem!

An excellent fast paced game of themed poker. Special abilities and numerous wild card options turn a decent game mechanic into an all out contest of bluffs and double-bluffs where anyone can potentially win. Avoid 3 player only games.

I've only found another 5 players to have a game once but I loved it and can't wait to play again.

I don't like the art or the theme but this will do. I think the rules are an improvement on Dune.

An intriguing game where 6 asymmetric powers vie for control of Mecatol Rex. It’s a game with a lot of secret information, and that sounded as a negative point when I first heard of the game since I like open information. But the game does a remarkable job of building a terrific game around that. It’s strong points is diplomacy, which is handled better than for example game of thrones.

Dune streamlined. Excellent 1979 mechanics, still fresh! Light wargame of choice for increased number of players. Thematically sound. A nice addition to your light wargames collection. Wish the manual included some kind of story.

Epic game! I didn't play the Dune boardgame, but this one is perfect. I love its universe and I love the mechanics. Maybe a bit strange that you lose so many in battle but still its great

At the first game, we made a few mistakes, but I expected it. It was a very interesting and exciting game. I see the potential in this game. We all had immense fun. That's why I give it a 9.1 (for the first time I use partial ratings.)

Costed about 15000 HUF

Dune + Twilight Imperium = Insta win.
This game rocks but I can't talk much about it because my opinion is biased, I love Dune and I also love Twilight Imperium. Is hard to not love this game.
