Product Description

Product Description

The "shufflebuilding" game Smash Up starts with a simple premise: Take the twenty-card decks of two factions, shuffle them into a forty-card deck, then compete to smash more bases than your opponents. Each faction brings a different game mechanism into play. Pirates move cards, zombies bring cards back from the discard pile, dinosaurs have huge power and every combination of factions brings a different play experience.

Box Contains

8 factions with 20 cards each<BR>16 base cards<BR>rulebook

Comicbook style pugilism is at the heart of Smash Up, which is termed a "shufflebuilding" game.

The premise is simple, 2-4 players choose two of eight faction decks comprised of about 20 cards, shuffle them together and then off you go. The decks themselves represent entities such as "Pirates", "Wizards", "Dinosaurs" etc, each having a particular style or effect, with the replay value coming from the fact that there are a number of different possibilities, meaning that each time you play, you'll need to calibrate your strategy and tactics according to the faction's strengths and weaknesses.

Each deck is made up of minions and actions and you can play one of each per turn. In general minions will have a power value (up to 7) and have a unique ability that they can use at certain points of the game. Actions are usually one off events, although some factions have events that can be ongoing throughout the game.

The purpose of the game is to win 15 victory points - these can be won by laying minion cards at "bases, of which 4 are always present. Each base has what is termed a "breakpoint" and the first player to lay enough minions at a base to match that value is deemed to have won the points. However, points are also given to players who come 2nd and 3rd as well. Furthermore, some bases give more points to 2nd place than 1st place. Smash Up is essentially a bidding game, but one where you can find your bids removed or reduced significantly, just as you can affect other players too. Those who don't like direct confrontation may do well to avoid this game.

Smash Up's flavour and longevity comes from the unique abilities that each faction has and the combinations that you can make with mixing them up. For example, Dinosaurs are very powerful but lack subtlety.

Bought for a teenager who has played card games in the past - quick to pick up, although it rewards strategic play. Seems to meto be a game that improves with the number of players increasing as there's more scope for backstabbing :)

First saw this game on Table Top (You Tube with Will Weaton). It's great fun and very easy to explain to new players. Mixing the decks really adds a good amount of re-playability.

I saw this on a program called table top online and it looked fun.
A good game but I would recommend 3 or more players

A good game but you really need at least one expansion even if just for the variety and vp tokens.

What looks like an almost empty box soon becomes a surprisingly tactical and interesting game. Played it with 2 friends and we loved it! Now I need the expansion pack!
