Smash Up, an award-winning shufflebuilding card game designed by Paul Peterson, is now available in a 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! During play, you will be attempting to destroy base cards (each with their own unique difficulties and abilities). Combine your character and action cards wisely to obtain the most power and score points based on your contribution when the base finally succumbs!
As a fan of the board game I was quite excited when I found there would be a digital version being released. With an exceptional library of digital board game adaptations (Ticket to Ride, Pandemic, Jaipur, Splendor, Small World, and Colt Express to name a few) it was a fairly safe bet Asmodee Digital would do the game justice too. They have quite the history of providing great gaming experiences by offering more than just a straight digital adaptation. Case in point this digital version of Smash Up features:
- Online Cross-platform multiplayer: 2 to 4 players
- Play with 4 players or solo against the AI
- 9 faction decks, including the base game set and more: Zombies, Aliens, Dinosaurs, Ninjas, Pirates, Robots, Tricksters, Wizards & Geeks
- Random or manual faction selection
- Fully automated scoring
- Tutorial system plus ‘Step Through’ and ‘Review’ modes to help players learn
- Leader boards & Achievements
- 16 Base cards to compete over
That said I must admit that their ad did leave me kind of… meh.
At $6.99 AUD it’s priced a little higher than the norm but considerably cheaper than some of many other board game adaptations. What do you think? Worth a shot?
