What about the price of this game? I hope it will cost no more than 60 euro / dollars, also because is not a box plenty of things. Any information?

I don't think I've seen it announced anywhere yet, but if I had to guess it would be in the $150 US range. That's what there more recent games have been.

Space hulk fourth edition was 100 euro. If I must pay 150 euro for this... Bye, bye, Mr. Blood bowl...

Still no clue on price or release date so it's a bit of a mystery. All we know is that it *should* show up before the end of the year.

I found this on Spikey Bits web page. Their info is pretty reliable but take it with a grain of salt.

TOUCHDOWN! Looks like Blood Bowl will be here for the holidays as several industry giants have told us the game WILL go on pre-order next week with a delivery date of the rumored November 25th!

Regarding cost-

If you compare it to their other recent games- the Horus heresy games & deathwatch overkill had multi-part, multi-pose parts, with ~50 miniatures as well as thick card tiles, and all the other parts. Those games cost £95 in the UK. The components in BB4 look much closer to something like Lost Patrol- 24 miniatures, single-pose and a board with the other bits and pieces. I can't imagine they will price it the same as the horus heresy games, though it also won't be Lost Patrol price. I imagine £60-70 in the UK?

Also remember this is a game system that they will release lots of expansions and campaign books for. In that case, the pricing strategy for those types of games is a low entry-level cost, not a high one, as you make the money on the additional purchases. You can see that in their 40k and sigmar boxed games. You get a huge amount of stuff for very cheap, point being you're buying into the system and will buy other stuff later on.

There's my entirely uninformed opinion!

Well not to blow my own trumpet, but



That's spot on with my prediction of between £60-70.

Definite buy!

All they've released is a preorder date (the 12th), nothing more. No confirmation on price or actual release date yet.

The vast majority of the time GW boxed games release 1 week after pre-order (So the 19th is mot reliable as a guesstimate). I was told $80 is how much my preorder is costing for what it is worth. So I think $100 is the retail cost.

$100 seems pretty steep and I suspect it won't come with free shipping.

I wonder how much the individual teams will cost.

Some word on Pricing

I believe its

£65 for the core set (2 12 man teams)
£20 for the Deathzone (league rules) expansion
£25 for the only other race which is releasing, Skaven 12 rats.

So before star players or extra positionals to round out the rosters your looking at £85 or £110 if you want the rats.

The extra £20 for the league rules is pretty poor IMHO considering they have been around for 20 years. Still Typical GW I guess.

I would love that pricing (and likely get everything), but it seems other sites are reporting closer to the $100 mark:

Quote:
Also SpikeyBits is reporting that the retail price for the game will be $100.

Dakka’s Guru reports the following prices:

Blood Bowl Boxed Set: 85€
Death Zone Season 1 gaming supplement: 20€
Skaven Team (12 Players): 25€
Skaven Dice (Set of 10 Dice): 9€


From BOLS

If it's 85 euros, then it'll be £85, which seems very steep for me and might put me off getting it or at least getting anything else on release day.

£65 is ok. Its a shame though, because I think at £50 it might have had been a bigger crossover hit.

Anything over $65.00 online is shipped free from GW.

And any amount is free if you have your local store order it, assuming they carry GW stuff.

Looking at GW's last couple of box sets, a $100 is surprisingly cheap. I was expecting it to be $150.

Indeed. I was expecting $150, too. $100 is better.

Quite the same here. Although I know people are going to grouse about being piecemealed to death, I think that is the best solution here.

GW sells a premium product quality wise, anyone who doesn't believe or think this needs to re-evaluate, badly. Getting the base game to market for under $100 (remember a GW preferred store will sell GW product for 20% off retail) is a phenomenal decision on GW's part, and really shows they are making strides to get back in touch with reality.

Sure I will eventually be spending $150 total for everything but I know what I am getting, for those who are hesitant to drop $150 for an unknown piecemeal is awesome.

As much as I'd love to pick this up, I think it's going to end up being a bit out of my range. A shame really, it's a good game, and I wanted to pick up the latest edition so I could pick up the teams as well. I have a 3rd but only the base 2 teams (it's a recent pickup).
