Dune Spice Wars - Quick beginner's tips

Here are some quick starting tips for Dune Spice Wars.

  1. Remember about pausing the time - until you get used to the game, you can pause the time by pressing the Spacebar and still plan your actions. This will give you time to read the messages and descriptions of activities/buildings.
  2. Plan how you want to use your resources - at the beginning, you need Spice to pay taxes and earn Solari, Plascrete is for building structures, Water and Power are for claiming lands. Everything you build - from buildings to units - has a maintenance cost. Check consumption on a regular basis and wisely occupy new areas and build units.
  3. Focus on defense - rebels can attack almost any village, even in the middle of your empire, until you know their location and deal with them. The game has a fixed pace of the gameplay, so do not expect a quick and strong offensive from other factions.
  4. Benefit from trade and treaties - other factions are often open to exchange goods and establish treaties that benefit both sides.
  5. Keep exploring - even after you've explored the surrounding areas, keep exploring - Ornithopters are indestructible, and in addition to discovering points of interest, they will inform you about the approaching enemy troops.
