DUNE: A Game of Conquest and Diplomacy

Take control of one of the four great factions–House Atreides, House Harkonnen, the Fremen, and the Imperium, all vying to control the most valuable resource in the universe: melange, the mysterious spice only found at great cost on the planet Dune.

Ship your forces to Dune, harvest spice, seize control of strongholds, and destroy your enemies.

A refinement and evolution from the classic 6-player game.

2-4 players | 30-60 mins

DUNE: Imperium

As one of the Great Houses of the Landsraad, raise your banner and marshal your forces and spies in this deck-building twist on the worker-placement genre.

2-4 players | 60-120 mins

Arrakis : Dawn of the Fremen

Each player controls a tribe of Fremen warriors, struggling to gather the scarce resources of Arrakis, developing the weapons and sietches they’ll need to survive, and harnessing the power of sandworms for battle. Will your tribe prevail, or will you vanish into the desert?

A brutal, cutthroat game about tribal control of Arrakis, set long before the events of the novel Dune.

2-4 players | 60-90 mins

DUNE: House Secrets

A deeply thematic experience that drops players in the middle of the highest stakes unfolding on the harsh desert planet of Arrakis.

Featuring the co-operative game system used in Portal’s award-winning Detective: A Modern Crime Board Game

1-5 players | 120-180 mins

DUNE: Betrayal

A social deduction game.

In this game of tactics and deception, you are secret agents, representing different roles within the famous factions vying for control amid the sands of Dune.

4-8 players | 30-45 mins


A Game of Conquest, Diplomacy and Betrayal

Let the spice flow! The beloved strategy game set in the incredible world of Frank Herbert’s DUNE returns in an updated edition. Who will gain control of the planet that is home to the only source of the most valuable substance in the known universe?

2-6 players | 120+ mins

Cars: The Triangle Car Park is at the end of Clifton Road. In addition, there are 30-minute parking bays just up the road near Newtown Stores convenience shop, as well as 2-hour bays in each of the side roads off of Clifton Road (Clifton Street, Chute Street, Sandford Walk, etc). If you have an electric vehicle, there are charging points in Belmont Road (along the front of Belmont Park), on the left as you exit Clifton Road.

Bus: The nearest bus stop is Lower Summerlands at the junction of Clifton Road and Heavitree Road. The new Exeter Bus Station is only a few yards further away, by St. Sidwell’s Point Leisure Centre and the VUE Cinema (walk down past the VUE cinema, across Western Way, between Jury’s Inn and Belmont Chapel to the Triangle Car Park and then turn left past The Clifton Inn).


Clifton Road Games do not provide or sell food and/or drinks on the premises, but customers are welcome to bring their own.

Newtown Stores is just up the road (on your left as you exit the shop), The Clifton Inn has an in-house bakery, as well as their regular pub menu, and is also just up the road (on the right as you exit). Exe Coffee Roasters are across the Triangle Car Park (opposite the Pyramids Leisure Centre).

We generally advise that gamers take specific breaks for food and drinks, rather than snacking throughout. It’s safer for the games components.

Customer toilets are available. Note that these are wheelchair accessible but not fully equipped as disabled facilities (ie. they do have extra space for a wheelchair and low hand basins; they don’t have hand rails or emergency assistance alarms).
