Description & Details

Smash Up is the award-winning game of battling teams of zombies, ninjas & more!

***“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?


- 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
- Contains 16 Base cards to compete over

Horrible execution, you should feel ashamed. Good game, piss-poor port onto digital.

Le jeu est particulièrement laid, le multi joueur ne fonctionne toujours pas et il n'y a que 9 factions.

Well, it's certainly the game, but the interface is unbearable and tone-deaf. To be specific; the UI animations are slow and obnoxious. I'm not here to see/hear your interpretations of what this game would look like if it were a cartoon. I want a streamlined, fast version of the game to play, with a gentle balance of showmanship. The menus where the options "collapse" into view? Ugggggggh. It takes an eternity for a base to finish scoring, and it doesn't even make it entirely clear where all the points are being added to/from, unless you analyze the event-history. The "press-hold-and-drag" method of thumbing through cards is extraordinarily difficult to to use. Many of the mechanics do not exercise common-sense while resolving. For example, a Wizard card permits me to draw minions from the top-five of my deck. The UI forces me to click on *every* card (including ones I can't draw) and select an action for them. I don't even like to play these cards for this reason. I would pay an additional 5 dollars for a stripped down version of the game, without the stupid animations, and a greater focus on quality-of-life features. I'm stuck with this for now.

Currently this is rated 3.7 stars which I feel is low for how fun the game is. There are slight UI tweaks which would make it better, but overall it's really fun. I'm new to the game and there is definitely a learning curve. But once you figure out the mechanics there are endless variations which keeps the game fresh. Hope they come out with faction expansion packs soon.

The game is great. We own smash up and all of the expansions in card version. The lack of a working multiplayer is a bummer, but hopefully it's being worked on. I would really like to see the faction expansions added to the game. It would make play much more fun. Also if players could select the amount of Victory points needed to win the game that would be much better as well. We at home often play to 30 or more, and with more than just 2 factions. If some of these things could be added I would love it even more. 5 *'s regardless.

The game simply does not start. It says "Starting..." and stays like that for ages. How do I get a refund? [Asmodee Digital replied - not sure if it will still be displayed afyer editing the comment] From the settings on my phone I do not see any option to give the app storage permission. Storage is simply not a permission I can give, to any app, apparently.

Love the table top game but having some issues with the app. It crashed during the tutorial so I had to do it twice even though I didn't need it to begin with. It would be great if you could skip the tutorial. I also can't sign up for an online account. Everytime I put in information it says it sent a confirmation email but hasn't. I found gameplay really difficult against the ai at first, even on the easy setting. My tabletop win rate for the game is about 80% but on the app is about 30%. I've gotten much better at it but it was strange. Wish it had more factions.

A great game with a "not so good and useful" interface. My opinion is that the interface is the main issue, not the only problem but the main. I would like to see color change option and roll back my play. For example if I accidentally play a minion on an other base or an action on a wrong minion to simply roll back my play. Can't wait for the expansions to be added.

It's broken. I can start the game and it automatically starts the tutorial. Once the tutorial is complete, the game locks up every time. I uninstalled and reinstalled the game, but it always locks up at the same place. It's a shame, really. I've played the physical game and really enjoy it, but buying this was a waste of money since I can only ever play the tutorial.

So I am a big Smash Up fan and this game is legit, but I am getting really frustrated with the online play or lack thereof. I have an asmodee account but it won't let me log in at all. I don't know I just feel like that would be the most fun part about this, but it continues to suck.
