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 is a set of random faction cards for every faction up to pretty pretty. The purpose of these cards is to give 2 to each player and those are the factions that are played. If a player draws the "your choice" card, then they get to choose one of their factions. If people enjoy these random faction cards, I can create some for the 8 munchkin factions coming soon.
A brief summary of the core mechanics/theme of each Smash Up Faction, including a brief flavorful description in parentheses. Also indicates which factions are more difficult to play (in my opinion) or have non-traditional deck structures. Includes all expansions up through Pretty Pretty Smash Up. Version 1.0.
A 30 point base mat for Smash Up. I designed this based on Outinthedark's base mats but wished the track to extend beyond a break point of 20 as well as have spaces be a little larger for pawns/meeples. Two mats are printed on each page and should fit the cards fine.
Based on Outinthedark's excellent bases, these have been extended to include support for 30 point scoring.
The background of the bottom row isn't perfect as I don;t have the source files, but it worked well for us so I thought I would post them up.
