Dune Strategy Tips

Players in DUNE must amass spice, convert it to effective weaponry, defenses, and other strategic aids, and then position themselves with enough forces to be able to suddenly move into key strongholds and defend them. The game will be won by daring, strategy, mobility, and treachery.

The storm is important, because it determines who is First Player.

Being First Player is an advantage in battles (ties go to the First Player), but being last is an advantage in movement (surprise takeovers by the last player cannot be countered that turn). …


In all sumoku games, tiles must be arranged in a crossword- style pattern such that each row and column adds up to a multiple of the key number. The key number is the number rolled on the die.

The created pattern itself is called a sumoku. In all sumoku variations:

  • There are only 6 colors.
  • A color cannot repeat in the same row or column.
  • A row or column must be a combination of 2 to 6 tiles in the same unbroken line.
  • The "6" tile can be used as a "6" or a "9".
  • The die is rolled only once for an entire game.

  • 1 die
  • travel pouch
  • Rulebook

Object of the Game
