Ixians & Tleilaxu Houses expand Dune the board game

December 29, 2019 - 6:05pm

Dune is a 2-6 player strategic board game where players are leaders of six great factions, who each wish to control the most valuable resource in the universe, a mysterious spice called melange, found only on the planet Arrakis. The expansion adds two new houses who are mortal enemies, the Ixians and the Tleilaxu, to the Dune board game.

The Tleilaxu are fanatical and xenophonic, and are led by a small council of Tleilaxu Masters. Though underestimated by rival factions, they hope to dominate all through superior genetic engineering.

Prince Rhombur of House Vernius, is a cyborg who leads the Ixians. They are masters of manufacturing and other technologies which only they are able to employ.

New game mechanisms are set to debut in the expansion, published by Gale Force Nine, which will release in Q2 of 2020.
