Description Edit | History

Dust is a strategy board game of conquest and control. Seize power sources and capitals, develop your infrastructure, and build and wield vast, high-tech armies in your bid for global domination.

Players will probably recognize the map as that of Earth, but what they will not see are any borders or nations. In the world of Dust, the unending war and the new technologies have altered the political face of Earth beyond all recognition.

At the beginning of each turn, players select a card from their hand. This card represents their strategy for the coming turn and to a large extent dictates the actions a player can take.

During their production phase, players spend production points to buy additional factories and units. Each individual unit type has its own unique statistics and effects, so players have to carefully consider the composition of their armies.

In combat, players alternate rolling dice and destroying units until one side has been eliminated (either due to casualties or retreats) or a cease-fire is declared.

At the end of each game round, players score victory points for power sources, capitals, and majorities they control. The player who controls the most land areas earns bonus victory points, as does the player who controls the most sea areas and the player who controls the most production centers. The first player to amass a set number of victory points while also controlling a capital is the winner.

Only once a player has amassed at least half the victory points required to win can he or she attack an enemy capital. Once the war has been so escalated, however, then all players are free to attack capitals.

5 Dust Premiumregeln Zusammenfassung (deutsch / german)
Eine Zusammenfassung der Premiumregeln. Sie soll vor allem neuen Spielern während der ersten Spiele Sicherheit geben und auf Details hinweisen, die sonst leicht vergessen werden. Auch deutsche Spieler der englischen Version können sie zum schnellen Nachschlagen verwenden, ohne die (vollfarbige) Originalregel ausdrucken zu müssen. Diese Regelzusammenfassung ist nicht unbedingt vollständig, und enthält keine Beispiele oder Erklärungen zu den Karteneffekten (hierzu empfehle ich den Kartenreferenzbogen von OneArmedSorcerer)! Ausdrucken am besten beidseitig auf einem Blatt A4, und in der Mitte falten. This is a summary of the German premium rules, meant to aid new players during their first games. It may be incomplete and doesn't contain excamples or descriptions of the cards.

1 Descrição das cartas, conforme regras italianas
Descrição em português das habilidades especiais das cartas, atualizada de acordo com as regras italianas. Bom para imprimir e ter à mão durante o jogo: 2 cópias em uma folha A4. Pelo que sei, os designer italianos puderam desenvolver mais as regras depois do lançamento americano, a partir da versão "Epic". Por isso, acho que é mais interessante jogar com essas regras. São, aliás, apenas pequenas mudanças.

11 Cards description according Italian rules
This is a description of the Special Abilities, updated according the Italian rules. Good to print and have with you when playing. Two copies in a A4 page. As far as I know, Italian rules were a further development, made by the own designers, from American Epic rules, so I think it is an improvement to the game.
