“From the designers of the War of the Ring board game comes the thematic strategy board game Dune: War for Arrakis. Centered around the Desert War events from the acclaimed Dune novel by Frank Herbert, this universe and its iconic characters are brought to life for the first time with a myriad of amazing miniatures. The devious House Harkonnen, with the backing of imperial House Corrino, must battle the remnants of House Atreides, who are allied with the desert Fremen, for control of Arrakis and its most precious resource: the spice melange.”
