Hailed as an all-time classic, the game pits six factions against each other for the conquest of Dune, each with extremely unique powers. The native Fremen for example can reinforce for free, while the Spacing Guild gets money for every time a unit is transported on the board.
The game also allows for the formal creation of alliances, which grant powers to you and your allies but makes it more difficult to win.
Dune will be available in August and can be pre-ordered now.
Dale of Merchants is one of our favorite deck builders, and Dawn of Peacemakers is a really unique anti-war war game. Here’s the designer on the new game:
In the game, players explore an open and evolving game world filled with interesting stories and memorable characters. The adventures continue over multiple games as players’ actions and decisions affect not only the current game, but every following game as well.
Snowdale is an amazing indie developer and we can’t wait to see what they bring. Demos of Galzyr will be demo’ed at Essen in October, with a Kickstarter due next year.
Play as a guinea pig, a mouse, a hamster, or a vole in a world where humans have mysteriously disappeared. Grow your colony between missions, fight off predators and bandits, all in a post-apocalyptic setting.
Boogie Beasts is a fast little card game about skydiving animals that takes place partly in real time. Perform group jumps to improve your score, or sabotage the formation to hurt the leaders.
Join the new space race in Exploration, a game about orbital mechanics, building decks of spaceships, which plays in a svelte 30 minutes per player.
