Card game Awesomeness! Will your Pirate-Aliens defeat the Ninja-Zombies?
Smash Up lets you combine amazing factions into unique decks to defeat any opponent you face.
Smash Up gives you a literally insane number of ways to play. Even without the Cthulhu set.
Choose two factions, such as Wizards and Robots, and combine them into a unique pair. Each pairing brings different strategies to defeat your opponents! Wizard-Robots will play differently than Wizard-Ninja.
A Ton of Fun in a Single Box!
Smash Up comes with 8 factions to combine in countless ways, including Ninja, Pirates, Zombies, Robots, Tricksters, Dinosaurs (with lasers), Aliens, and Wizards. Each brings their own unique abilities.
But Why Stop There?
Smash Up has many modular expansions to add all-new strategies with factions like Ghosts, Super Spies, Princesses, Werewolves, Bear Cavalry, Steampunks, Vampires, Apes, and more!
Smash Up is AEG’s best-selling, super fun flagship game.
Smash Up, designed by Paul Peterson, is the Shufflebuilding game from Alderac Entertainment Group. In Smash Up players draft two faction decks, such as pirates, ninja, robots, zombies, and more, and combine them 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 of 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 the Zombie-Ninja deck Assassinates your minions then creates an Outbreak, loading the Base with minions from their discard pile?
Or when the 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 64 combinations to try out and every expansion set increases the options exponentially!
The Shufflebuilding Game of Total Awesomeness! What do pirates, ninjas, robots, zombies, aliens, wizards, tricksters, and dinosaurs have in common? They’re all trying to take over the world! But they can’t do it alone, so they’re teaming up. Every combo brings a different experience in this fast-paced shufflebuilding game. Take two 20-card decks, smash them together, and then rock your opponents’ faces! Each faction has a different style: pirates move cards, zombies come back from the discard pile, dinosaurs are just freaking huge. Each pairing creates different gameplay. And each game is a different throw-down! Is Smash Up a game you can live without? Not if you’re awesome. Choose a side. Choose two! And start the carnage! Features: Easy Gameplay Tons of strategy Dozens of deck combinations, making the replay value immensely high! Features 8 different factions, including dinosaurs with lasers!
From the Manufacturer
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. 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 eight 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?

Here's the kicker. The first day I got a chance to play with my buddies, we managed to drop a card from the Steampunks set onto the floor. Well, my wonderful dog being the Shiba Inu she is, decided she was going to chew up and destroy that card. Being the anal person that I am, I could not be short a single card in my set! I contacted Alderac about possibly purchasing a replacement card. The next day they replied saying "We would be happy to replace your card, please email us your address". Well guess what? Three days later I have a replacement card in a sleeve in a padded envelope. Great customer service Alderac. I will recommend your games to everyone I see.
The Starting factions in this game (Zombies, Robots, Wizards, Ninjas, Pirates, Dinosaurs, Aliens, and Tricksters) each offer a unique play-style that meshes very well with most of the others, but not all of them. There is also the issue that certain combinations are very potent and can even be game-breaking at times, but that usually happens only when the card draws of said combo are phenomenal.
The art is very well done and strikingly different from faction to faction, from the hazy environments of the Tricksters to the hard lines of the Robots. Each faction also has a unique card border and symbol on the bottom-right of the cards, making separating them and storing them back in the box far easier. The titles of the cards are also wonderfully hilarious spoofs of various pop culture icons, from TV shows to books to movies and everything in-between.
I would definitely recommend this game to anyone interested even a little bit in fantasy or sci-fi pop culture, but would recommend holding off on buying any expansions until they become familiar with how to play the game.
I've heard it said that this is not a must to start with but, I think it's a really good enough idea to say you really should start with this first.
The quality of the product is made very well and will stand the of time at much use. This game overall is addicting and you will want to purchase every expansion available! I bought after playing it at my daughters. I bought it to play it at Thanksgiving... as a test to see if my son would want it for Christmas. After playing the game I asked him and he said YES. Then I told him of my sneaky plan to get him to play it first to see if he would like it and want it for Christmas. His wife was exsited too and we plan to have the game at each of houses so we can plan to play it when we get together.
WARNING... THIS GAME WILL RACK YOUR BRAIN... PLAY IT WHEN YOU CAN THINK because it requires a lot of it! :)
This is a great game and I see myself playing it for years to come!
P.S. Expansions I recommend are, "It's your fault", "Pretty Pretty" and "Awesome Level 9000" after one or all of those I would recommend "Monster Smash", "What Were We Thinking?" or any of the newer ones. (Side note: This box has room for an additional 8 factions making transportation convenient.)
