Smash Up, designed by Paul Peterson, is the all-new Shufflebuilding game from Alderac Entertainment Group.  In Smash Up players take two factions, such as pirates, ninja, robots, zombies, and more, and combine their decks into a force to be reckoned with!

When the game begins, players take turns drafting one of several faction decks.  Once each player has two decks, they shuffle them together, combining their distinct abilities into a unique 40-card deck.  Players then deal out a number of Base cards, and play their decks to attempt to have the most power on a base when it is scored.

It may sound simple, but how simple is it when your opponent’s Zombie-Ninja Assassinate your minions then create an Outbreak, loading the Base with minions from their discard pile?  Or when their Pirate-Dinosaurs Full Sail onto the base with the mighty King Rex, whose massive power dwarfs that of other minions?

Each combination gives a different experience, Pirate-Aliens play very different than Pirate-Zombies, and with 8 factions in the base set there are tons of combinations to try out!

Value for Money

Smash up is a great concept that almost lives up to it's premise. You take two faction decks and smash them together to form a mega deck that you will use to score bases before other players do. So you may have pirate ninjas vs zombie dinosaurs. A lot of the appeal comes from this concept. Each turn you may play one minion and one action from your hand, but of course card powers are cleverly woven together to create combos. First too 15 points wins. This works well with 2-3 players but I wouldn't play it with four. It can be come hard to keep track of all the different active powers and that can bog the game down a bit. Also there is ton's of room in the box for expansions and really this is a game that you will get more out of if you expand it so be warned that the price may be more than you think!
All that being said we have a lot of fun with this one, and the factions are great.

Bought this game after having seen it played on WIl Wheaton's Tabletop. Great game, simple to learn but with lots of depth and variety and interesting themes and artwork.
Introduced it to a friend who went out and bought it the next week.
The only problem is now I'm hooked into getting the expansions and seeing what they add to the game (so far I have Awesome Level 9000 and Science Fiction Double Feature both of which I'd recommend)
