Hmmm. A new 60 minute cooperative game from GW playable 1-4 players. Intriguing. It goes on sale tomorrow (4/25). I'm guessing it'll be for sale at some outrageous price tag. And yet, I'm still strongly considering it.

I'm thinking about how the title of the game has the words "Ass" and "Ass" as the first two things I read about it.

Looks like a semi-static board. The rules that I've seen so far seem like they have a basis in Space Hulk, with several add-ons inspired by old White Dwarf expanded rules for Power Armoured Marines, Imperial Guard (in the form of cultists) with 'thematic' elements from Warhammer Quest & Space Crusade. Seems to have a Metal Gear like 'sneak' aspect to it and the A.I. feels alot like Castle RavenloftCastle Ravenloft. I could be totally off, but I think it looks fun and has potential for fan expansion, using the existing model range and existing Space Hulk boards

You put your ass-ass in, you put your ass-ass out, you put your ass-ass in and shake it all about ...

Then you do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself around ...

That, my friends, is what it's all about.

Which is better than:

"Hey, dude, did you play that new GW co-op game?"
"Yeah, man, that game was total ass."
"Seriously?"
"Yeah, seriously. Like total ass."
"Like total ass ass?!"
"Totally."
"Man... that sucks ass."

I'm excited to see them support both solo play and coop! That alone makes it a nice improvement over Space Hulk.

Yeah, the fact that it supports 1 to 4 means it will hit the table more than Hulk. It's hard to get pure 2P games to the table anymore.

Looks like they added it to the website but haven't connected it to the store yet. If you click on it you get this error...

Error 404 - All Records Expunged from Library
Sorry, the page you are looking for does not exist or it may never have existed. Not to worry, just click on the Games Workshop logo to return to the homepage.


Maybe it will be available at midnight?

So far there is a bundle version with the latest episode of white dwarf and a paint set, a hard cover novel, and a different audio book novel.

You guessed right:

$248. shake

Anyone who buys this waives the right to complain about GW pricing for ever more!


EDIT: Just realized this is the price in New Zealand pennies, so here's hoping for a sane price after all. At least for those who don't live in Middle Earth.

Good to see that there are multiple boards and a clever 'exploration' mechanic as the room tiles are overlaid randomly(?) over the blank areas.

The UK retail price is £75. Pretty standard for this kind of game nowadays.

:p

The title is a mouthful. I'm sure everyone will just wind up calling it Ass Force for short.
