Dune: Ixians & TleilaxuExpansion of: Dune
2 - 5 Players
This mechanic requires you to place a bid, usually monetary, on items in an auction of goods in order to enhance your position in the game. These goods allow players future actions or improve a position. The auction consists of taking turns placing bids on a given item until one winner is established, allowing the winner to take control of the item being bid on. Usually there is a game rule that helps drop the price of the items being bid on if no players are interested in the item at its current price.
Not particularly great as a whole but some of the additional cards are useful whilst the majority are best not played with. The 2 new factions make a change from using the original 6 but only on occasion as they are simply not up to the same standard as those found in the original box. I would rate this expansion above the Duel but below Spice Harvest. What it adds is mostly more ridiculous treachery cards that people will hate to play with similarly to some of those found in the duel and spice harvest.
How to pronounce "Zoal". Is it two syllables? Seems like, to help the Tleixlaxu, every player should start with some pieces in the tanks.
Remove - expansion to a game I am removing -The added parts to this in terms of weird cards seems not great, but the two factions do sound interesting and seem to be a good option
