Dune: Imperium – Uprising review – “An elegant mix”

Even though Dune: Imperium – Uprising is a standalone sequel to Paul Dennen’s excellent Dune: Imperium board game, you don’t need to have any experience with it to dive in. Focusing on the characters and events of the second Dune movie, this has quickly become the Dune of choice at my gaming table. In fact, it takes what was already one of the best modern board games for adults and improves on that formula.

Much of the characters, art, and even card names tie directly into the film and give you the feel of battling for power and influence on Arrakis through hatching schemes, attracting allies, and leading sandworms into battle. An elegant mix of worker placement and deckbuilding, Dune: Imperium – Uprising has immense replay value, encouraging you to test new strategies each session based on the cards available.
