Dune Chess:

Alex R. Kraaijeveld pointed out this neat game by L. Lynn Smith to us.

Smith introduced Dune Chess with:

When I first read Frank Hebert's 'Dune', I was amazed at the visual depth of the story. Every now and then, especially when I smell cinnamon, I see an ocean of sand beneath a clear sky of stars and two moons, I hear the static hiss of an approaching sandworm and the distant melody of a thumper.

I designed this simple board game to reflect the struggle to control Arrakis. I hope the reader finds joy in its appreciation.
