Desert power! This week on the Vintage RPG Podcast, we look at the classic strategy game Dune (1979 from Avalon Hill, though Stu played the 2019 reprint from Gale Force Nine). There are a lot of cool things in Dune that have become staples of modern board game design, but it still manages to deliver a unique, spice-flavored experience.

Dune is one of the most intricate, yet well balanced, gameplay I’ve ever seen in a boardgame. The game is an absolute blast right up to the moment the Harkonnen ally with the Fremen. It gets ugly from there.
