After various manufacturing and shipping delays, we’re happy to now offer a direct pre-order for Dune: Imperium – Rise of Ix and the Boundless Ambition promo card!
Rise of Ix Rulebook Now Available!
Over the last few months, we’ve enjoyed digging into some of the new gameplay twists and strategic surprises on the way in Dune: Imperium – Rise of Ix in a series of Design Diaries that explore what the first expansion has in store.
Want to see even more of what’s on the way in Rise of Ix? The full rulebook is now available for download!
Timing and Shipping
While we encourage everyone to pre-order from and support your local game stores, we understand that not everyone has that option. So next week, on Thursday, November 18, Rise of Ix will go on sale in the Dire Wolf Store for US-based customers. (We’re hoping to have news for non-US customers soon, as well).
Shipping note: We’re going to level with you: Getting games distributed in the past year has been harder than piloting an ornithopter through a sandstorm. We don’t have an exact date for when Rise of Ix will be available – our vessel is due in the US on 11/17, and we’re hoping to get it on shelves and out to customers by mid-December but the truth is we don’t know what the timing will look like. As many of you know, our container of the Deluxe Upgrade Pack sat for eight weeks on the dock before finally being released!
Speaking of which, US orders of the Deluxe Upgrade Pack have begun to ship, as of yesterday. You should start seeing tracking notices and packages chock-ful of Dune: Imperium miniatures showing up on your doorsteps over the next week or so as our fulfillment partner gets through the pre-orders.
As with the FLGS pre-order period that opened this past summer, your pre-order from Dire Wolf will include the Boundless Ambition promo card to help you indulge in your inner Harkonnen:
