Smash Up, designed by Paul Peterson, is the Shufflebuilding game from Alderac Entertainment Group. Â In Smash Up players draftÂ two faction decks, such as pirates, ninja, robots, zombies, and more, and combine themÂ 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.
A random selection ofÂ Base cards are dealt to the table, and players use 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 theÂ Zombie-Ninja deckÂ AssassinatesÂ your minions then creates anÂ Outbreak, loading the Base with minions from their discard pile?
Or when the Pirate-DinosaursÂ Full SailÂ onto the base with the mightyÂ 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 64Â combinations to try out and every expansion set increases the options exponentially!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=halE5b4v0bo
