***“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!

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?!?


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

Satusfied User

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.



So excited for this to come to mobile, but it’s missing a key feature! Choosing who you play in multiplayer NEEDS to be there! We need to be able to create a private lobby for online play and invite our friends. Whether it be through unique codes specific to each lobby or being able to add friends on the game in order to invite them. Unfortunately, I’ll have to prevent my friends from downloading this game until that feature exists since it’s the one thing we were all the most excited about. Despite all that, the game plays well.
Please make “private lobbies” available, I believe in all you AEG guys!

Changes need to be made


The interface needs an overhaul. Expanding your hand so all cards can be both seen and easily picked would be nice. Easily seeing what's on a base would be nice too. Finally, I think an undo button would be a great addition (disabled when a card would be drawn, etc).

FIXED: While it's not necessary, I would want to disable the ability for users/ai to choose the same faction.

Oh and to reviewers who are saying how great it is and the rest of us are whiners, we aren't saying it's completely unplayable. We're saying we want it to be more easily played so it's not as frustrating to's supposed to be fun, remember?
