***“It’s a goofy theme with fun art and high replayability, but beneath that veneer of casual play is a great middle weight card game that lives on the line between hardcore gamer and casual enjoyment.” —Jonathan Bolding “The Escapist”
***“Smash Up is smashing good fun, especially among gamers who can relax, revel in the sheer audacity of some stupid-good plays, and aren’t ashamed to let loose and let their geek flags fly.” —Dice Hate Me
Smash Up is an award-winning shufflebuilding card game designed by Paul Peterson, now available in a beautiful digital adaptation so you can play on the go with friends all over the world. In Smash Up, players draft two faction decks from their choice of pirates, ninjas, robots, zombies, and more, and combine them to create a hybrid team that is a force to be reckoned with!
A SPECIAL GAME EXPERIENCE!
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.
During play, Base cards (each with their own difficulties and abilities) are in play. Combine wisely your characters and actions' cards to obtain the most power! You attempt to have the most power on the Base from your minions when the Base is smashed. Sounds easy?
How easy is it when an opponent's Alien-Ninja decides to Beam Up your minions to other Bases - flat out Assassinate them? What about when the Pirate-Dinosaur player Full Sails in and releases King Rex to stomp your minions into the ground, or when the Wizard-Zombies use their Mystic Power to create an Outbreak, suddenly flooding minions onto the Base from the discard pile? Or what if you faced a Zombie-Dinosaur player instead and he created an Outbreak of massive beasts all at once?!?
SCORE THE 15 NECESSARY POINTS & WIN THE GAME!
When a Base is smashed, each player in first, second and third place scores points. Fourth place? Sorry, bro – try harder next time.
With nine different factions, Smash Up includes dozens of combinations to try. Pirate-Aliens play different than Ninja-Aliens, for instance. Which will you use to smash up your opponents?
And did we mention the dinosaurs have laser beams?

Very good still a couple of things that need to be tweaked
I’d been holding off on getting this since past reviews made it clear that the UI needed work. From the looks of it a lot of the issues that were complained about have been improved, so kudos to the developers. If there is anything I’d complain about it’s that some of the buttons are very difficult to click. (For instance the proceed button) in addition it would be nice if scanning and choosing actions would filter out cards that it doesn’t apply to. For instance the wizard deck has a card that allows the player to scan their deck for an action card and add it to their hand. There is no reason to include the minion cards in the selection.
Also would be nice if there were an ability to look through the different faction decks outside of gameplay in order to better learn about their contents and develop strategies.
Shows promise but still a weak beta
Far too many bugs for real release, dealing with problems with the UI and general playability takes you right out of the game. The ability to see what your opponent has done on any given turn is there, but maddeningly difficult to discern. Probably wasn't a problem for the developers who were intimate with every card, but for a newbie learning this game it is painful. Can't recommend this version hopefully the developers can spend some time watching absolutely new players try to use their software.
How can I play w/ friends?
How could this not be supported? Look at Exploding Kittens. SmashUp NEEDS offline multiplayer support and online multiplayer support w/ friends. I assumed I’d be able to play with my kids. Very disappointed at the backward mentality of their online “service” that tries to remake the wheel instead of modernizing the entire experience. Why can’t we use Game Center to connect with friends? Why do I need yet another online account to play ur game?
