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

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.

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.

Was very excited to get this game to play with my family and friends across the country. Installed it and got a few family members as well. Tried to set up a private match but wasn't able to invite any of my family to the private match. I tried to invite friends and when I searched their account names or in game handles, and it returned no results for any of them. We tried to all find each other and add each other for a private match and none of us were able to find each other. Tried going through my account information it had a spot to list 'My buddies' but there was no way to find friends or edit my friends list. I have no use for this app if I cannot play with my friends and family, and we would all like refunds. We were not able to find any help documentation or faqs regarding this.

I've been able to play since the game came out but suddenly I can't connect to the server and as soon as I press play online game it loads for a second and goes back to the main menu. I CAN'T PLAY THE GAME! Would rate 5 stars if the game was playable online.

Love the real game and the digital version too. Only issue is there is never anyone to play against. The whole reason for paying for this app was so i could play globally. Very sad.

Been playing the IRL version since it's release. It is always fun, and the app is no different. It had a rocky start with the UI, but the app publisher has shown they are willing to listen to constructive criticism and fix problems at a reasonable pace.

Offline play is fine but while it says you can invite friends, thanks functionality doesn't seem to work at all - my wife and I tried inviting each other, but nothing. Not ideal.

Paid for this and it won't load, stuck on the start screen. Great job on testing your product guys...

I've been waiting for this game in the app store! But the game won't start!

A fantastic game in both physical and digital format, easy to pick up and addictive to play!

I really like Smash Up, the board game. This does a great job approximating the game in a digital version. My chief complaint is the interface for viewing a large amount of cards at a time. I end up barely sliding back and forth trying to hover over a single card. I also wish there were more expansions in the game. Even 2 player matches with the computer are redundant after a while. Also, I'm not counting off for this but it isn't super clear how many cards the opponent has in their hand. I might be over looking something.
