Hype on hold until further details beyond two game mechanics.

“Whom will you influence? Whom will you betray?”

Whom will they sell to with that torturous tag line?

"The poser of the entire universe" is about right. Deckbuilder and worker placement is like three strikes right away. Let's just reduce the setting and theme to a thin, peeling label that we can easily apply to a couple of massively overused and overrated mechanics. Hard pass.

Cautiously optimistic. Would love to see a Dune deckbuilder (I still play Imperius, which is the best non-Dune Dune game, and dream of it incorporating deckbuilding), but I'm not convinced they can, or would, incorporate the kind of competitiveness I feel is essential to the setting. The only deckbuilder I can think of that has the required level of savagery is Arctic Scavengers.

No idea if this will be good. But I like Clank a lot, so that's something...

When someone told me there was a great deck building Alien game, I dismissed it.

I later discovered that I was wrong.

When you read the Dune books, or watched the movie or the tv show, did you feel that Dune was primarily about spice farming? Because worker placement deckbuilder Dune is almost certainly going to be a spice farming game. We can thank BGG for brainwashing a large segment of our hobby into thinking that eurogamers are the best games, so much so that all standard euro mechanics should be applied to every setting and theme and license.

Worker placement/IP license combo- just reminded me of the Nazgul/Quarriors mashup. Never played it, but heard nothing good about it.

From their website — “Who will you influence? Who will you betray?”

Pesky technical writers.

Personally, I'm finding it difficult to understand how anyone can take anything either positive or negative from this. The preview actually previewed precisely nothing except a couple vague mechanics with Dune attached. How is that either bad or good?

'Worker placement' can mean guys holding different sietches on Arrakis to this or that benefit. 'Deckbuilding' can be a matter of accumulating armies to hold said sietches. Nothing they said means basically anything. I'd wait before casting any kind of opinion.

We have very little information on this game. Their marketing strategy is to dribble it out in tiny bits. This is all we have right now. Not even a designer’s name, release date or price.
