Arrakis. Dune. Desert Planet. Raise your banner above the vast wasteland before you. As the Great Houses of the Landsraad marshal their forces and their spies, whom will you influence, and whom will you betray? A tyrannical Emperor. The secretive Bene Gesserit.

Dune: Imperium blends deck-building and worker placement in a deeply thematic new strategy game where the fate of the Empire hangs on your decisions. Will you seek political allies or rely upon military might? Economic strength or subtle intrigues? A council seat… or a sharpened blade? The cards are dealt. The choice is yours. The Imperium awaits.

Great Game, Great UI, Great Dev Support

Picked up Dune: Imperium for my phone a few weekends ago, having heard great things about the board game. And wow, does this game absolutely deserves the accolades it has received.

First, the game itself is a perfect of a blend of tactics (adapt to your hand and the opponent’s worker placement), strategy (plan multiple turns ahead due to limited moves and resources), and luck mitigation (build your deck to accommodate your play style).

Then, variable point system places all the elements of the game on even footing: you gain points from deck building, worker placement, and the conflict system. What seems like an easy-to-learn victory path blossoms into a complex web of options.

The system is utterly brilliant.

Then you throw in the static 26 (!) challenges that drastically modify the gameplay… the rotating skirmish gameplay features which do the same… and the promise to release Rise of Ix midsummer, which is believable after a short early access period… This game has dev supported variety coming out its ears!

Finally if you’re worried about the UI on a phone, don’t be. I’ve played over 30 games on my phone at this point. The UI is seamless on a small screen.

This app is completely worth your $12. It is mobile board gaming at its finest. Great mechanics, great variety, great UI, great support. I can’t wait for Rise of Ix.

What is going on…?

You can say whatever you want about me not being an expert player and whatnot, but I feel like the AI gets exactly what they need- like every time. It seems very difficult to battle them: when I go for the combat win- they mysteriously always get the bonus plus 5 intrigue card to eek out my victory- or if I am trying to go up the faction ladders they always seem to have the right counter card to go higher. I’m just frustrated because I feel like I have to play 10 games to win one. (That’s even on easy…who wants that?) Because it is digital I feel like I’m playing poker on a computer where the computer is getting just what it needs to beat you. And not by a landslide- just enough to squeak by for the win and throw a sand pie in your face. And then when you are marauding them and the game is over, then all the sudden the triple faction bonus intrigue card pops of their hand and I loose by one as well. It’s not fun plain and simple. I feel like the AI is cheating or getting exactly what it needs. At least if I was playing the cardboard game I’d be able to verify they had been holding some junk intrigue cards or the real ones that led to victory. Lord knows when I get the intrigue cards they are situationally good or I have to pay some kind of price to use them…
Wanted to like the game but oh well- you got my 11$. Good for you.

Developer Response ,

Hi there!

First up: The AI in Dune: Imperium does not cheat, or play by any special rules: It's playing the game exactly the same way that you are (though it's got more experience!). There's absolutely a learning-curve as you begin the game, and it's our hope that the Tutorials, followed by Easy AI games and the Challenges give players some space to explore and discover the strategies available. And if you're stuck, we've got a great player community on Discord that's happy to answer questions. Hope that helps!

Must play strategy gem!

As soon as you play this game it becomes immediately obvious why the board game won so many awards. I’ve been a gamer for decades and have played many digital board games, deck builders, and strategy games. There is, however, something about the way all the richly layered, deep systems of this game come together in brilliant ways that makes it one of the best strategy games ever in my opinion.

The polish in every aspect of this game is easy to see and appreciate, and it all works flawlessly including the online portions, though you can still play offline against the AI whenever you wish. There is definitely a learning curve to the game, but if you are aware of that going in you will be fine.

It took me a few games to get a win on easy mode, and still longer to work up to and get wins on hard mode. Having a challenging AI makes the game enjoyable in the long run, and it prepares you for skirmish mode, online games and the multiplayer events.

This game is well worth the price, and I am eagerly looking forward to upcoming events and DLC! It is truly a must play strategy gem for anyone who enjoys board games, deck builders, or just strategy game in general.
