I would pronounce it like it looks. All short vowel sounds.

The game looks interesting. Here's a description:

Ad (like a TV commercial)

Ass

Trah

It's Latin, by the way.  It means "to the stars" (there's another thread down there that goes into more detail.)

In terms of what it's about, it's about 5 different subspecies of humanity who have evolved differently in various environments travelling out to the stars in search of resources and (presumably) financial gain.  It plays a lot like Settlers of Catan in some ways, I would advise you to give it a spin.  It's a nice, non-hostile space-themed board game.
