Dune: War for Arrakis Board Game Up On Kickstarter

CMON has launched their Kickstarter campaign for their next game. This one takes you to the desert world of Arrakis, where you walk without rhythm or Sting in a Speedo will get you. It's Dune: War for Arrakis and you can check out the campaign now.

From the campaign:

From the designers of the War of the Ring board game comes the thematic strategy board game Dune: War for Arrakis. Centered around the Desert War events from the acclaimed Dune novel by Frank Herbert, this universe and its iconic characters are brought to life for the first time with a myriad of amazing miniatures. The devious House Harkonnen, with the backing of imperial House Corrino, must battle the remnants of House Atreides, who are allied with the desert Fremen, for control of Arrakis and its most precious resource: the spice melange.

As war rages on, House Harkonnen must dominate Arrakis and keep the spice flowing, lest they lose the support of the great powers of the Imperium. Meanwhile, the young Atreides leader-turned-messiah, Paul-Muad'Dib, must wrestle with his prescient visions and find his path between the fate of Arrakis, the inexorable jihad, and the destiny of the Kwisatz Haderach.

The campaign's over 4x funded but only has 7 days left to go.
