Hello,

I am currently in the process of printing my own version of Dune. In particular, I am presently trying to decide whether to use the French or the original character disks (both available at this site: http://www.sorvan.com/games/dune/).

To my eye, the original disks have way more character than their french counterparts. However, a significant difference is that the French counters also have a 10 leader for each faction. Not having yet played Dune, my natural question is, why is this? Is it a significant reason to print the french versions rather than the original ones?

Thanks for your help.

This is because the French version incorporates the DUEL expansion, which had a 10 value leader for each faction.
My personal opinion is to look for the Dune CCG, and use character images from those. Way better artwork than either of the boardgame versions.

Thanks, that answers my question perfectly. Because the Duel expansion does not sound very appealing and because I do not know where to find the graphics for the aforementioned CCG, I am going to go with the classic tokens.

An excellent choice. The classic art is very nice, and the black-and-white makes it easy to reproduce.

Neither the Duel nor the Spice Harvest are very good expansions.
They have some entertainment value for newbs, but they are at best time wasters and at worse terribly unbalancing. We played with them quite a few times before figuring out that they were thrashing an otherwise elegant game.

Here's the CCG card art that was posted in another thread here.
