You no sooner set foot inside the ancient ruins than the tunnel behind you collapses. Foul laughter screeches all around you. You cannot hope to dig your way out; all you can do is search for an exit…

So another one of FFG's big Gen Con announcements is this card game adaption of Warhammer Quest. I'm sure GW and FFG have seen the success of the Pathfinder game and decided they wanted in on the action. To early to tell if it will be any good...but I'm at least intrigued.

I actually watched the video. Hearing those guys, god bless 'em, talk about the game is like listening to someone say "this is a card game that you play with cards, because it is a card game and those are played with cards". Every single thing they said in the video about the game could be applied to literally fifty other games on the market today. It's not their fault, it's just that unfortunately any kind of game like this is so oversaturated right now. The differentiator (which they do touch on) is that they are attempting to bring forward WHQ specifically into a new format.

But even that doesn't feel all that fresh or interesting anymore.

I dunno, I'll almost definitely wind up with a copy (probably get it through MM) but I feel pretty indifferent about it. And you know that they'll start rolling out the expansions posthaste...

Hopefully the first expansion adds the board.

I'm cautiously optimistic. If done right, it could bring the spirit and the flavor of the original game to people who wouldn't ever get a chance to play the original.
I would expect the price point to be reasonable. I look forward to trying it out.

Yeah, this is all going to be down to the quality of the design. I can imagine this going pretty well, but it has to be clever and thematic w/a lower overhead than a full minis dungeon crawl.

Love that the dude in the Green Lantern shirt uses a copy of Merchant of Venus to set his Mac up on.

Wow...I wasn't that far off:
fortressat.com/forum/10-ameritrash/82702...?limitstart=0#205810

I've also come to appreciate Death Angel quite a bit. It's made me consider purchasing Space Hulk again, but I know better.

I do need to pick up the little expansions though.

Man, I'd love if FFG would have been able to swing a similar playing cardame for Warhammer Quest prior to the Old World getting destroyed. To have a version of Warhammer Quest in a little box that plays sort of like Death Angel would have been awesome. Heck, Advanced Heroquest would have been a better fit (it has henchmen - which would make a good 'second marine' to the main character with unique powers,),but AHQ doesn't have the pull WHQ seems to. Buying expansion packs that were new monsters/dungeon locations (orc and goblin lair, undead tomb, skaven lair, etc) would have been cool. Man, would have been a great little dungeoncrawler.


Anyway, looks like a big marketing fail here on the part of GW. They should have given FFG more lead time so this could have been called Warhammer Quest: The Cardgame of Dungeon Adventures in the Age of Sigmar.

I was getting a Death Angel type vibe from it as well. Looking forward to this one personally.

Soloing well would be a huge plus for me. That's Death Angel's bread and butter.

I'm intrigued, I enjoyed Death Angel and I love a dungeon crawl.

Also, don't forget the success of Blood Bowl: Team Manager.

It also sounds like they've adapted the quest mechanic from the LOTR coop card game, which we played regularly until Pathfinder was released.

Warhammer will have to be completely amazing to replace Pathfinder in my household.

I'll wait for reviews on this one. I have Mistfall coming in this month and it's a mix of LOTR LCG, Mage Knight, with some of the card play of Myth.

I'll probably still end up picking up Warhammer Quest or Runebound 3.0 before the end of the year.

Not a whole lot of detail in the actual game play there. But I'm interested. At least it's not Terrinoth again.
