Played it 4 times over the past 2 days. Though some deck combinations can be unbalanced, this game is still fun. I love that each deck really plays differently from each other.

Gives me the 'yugi-oh' feeling that got me into card games.. and then board games. Needs more deck types!!!!

My favorite game of all time is Cosmic Encounter. My second favorite is Heroscape. I've only played Smash Up twice and already it's looking like it will take the number three spot. It has everything I like in a game. How could it miss with me?

The only thing keeping this from a 10 right now is that it's so text-based that new people have to read all the cards, so the game can slow down considerably with new-comers.

I give this game a 10 because I'm super biased towards the game's thematic design. All of the factions are super fudgin cool and goofy. They also all play so completely differently from each other, and playing as two of them at a time makes the options for strategy far more open. It's super simple, I learned it in a turn. I feel it plays best 1v1 but 4 player ffa isn't bad. I have played this game pretty much everyday since I bought it. I've met no one who dislikes it.

This game simply is a blast to play. Lots of geek culture references. Lots of strategy and endless replayability. Figuring out how best to use your two factions that are smashed together is challenging, fun, and rewarding -- especially as the game can be chaotic, but because of player decisions and interactions, rather than sheer dumb luck. This is more fun than I thought it would be and more fun that it has a right to be!!!

Smash Up is the game I have picked up and put down more than any other board game. It looks and sounds great, but somehow I always managed to justify not buying this game.

one week I had no other options on the table and my board game allowance wasn't about to go towards paying a bill, so I broke down and purchased this gem.

Then I felt dumb for putting it down all those other times. So much wasted time not playing this game. What a great game. So much diversity to choose from. Pop culture factions that don't feel ham-fisted into the game. Each faction has a play style that works with the theme they represent.

Strategy, fun, game mechanics, High quality art... I know a score above 6 on this site jeopardizes a gamer's geek-cred but I find it near impossible that anyone would not enjoy this game.

I Love Smash Up!

I Plays like a fun and Light-Hearted Variant of Magic: The Gathering.

The Shuffle-Building Mechanics is the best thing since Sliced Bread

Some of the factions are little better than others *Cough!' Robots, Elder Things, Zombies *Cough* - But that is to be expected. With 30+ factions some has to be the best and some have to be the not best.

Love the GAME!

Phenomenal game. Reasonably quick play (depending on deck choice!) and amazingly fun and intricate. Plus the artwork is truly top notch. I've played about a dozen times and loved it each time, win or lose. Plays really well with just two, and I look forward to incorporating some (or all) the expansions to my game!

Smash up is my favourite game. Combining two different factions to make up your deck is loads of fun. Zombie-Pirates, Leprechaun-Werewolves...the combinations are endless. It has a Magic the Gathering feel, without the booster buying. I recommend this to everyone.

This is my favorite game on my shelf! I play Smash Up as often as I can and it's usually the most requested game that I own. I haven't played with anyone who didn't enjoy themselves.

Let me explain something. I've probably played close to fifty or sixty games of Smash Up, I have won 4 of them. I don't care because I always enjoy playing this. The number of combinations of factions is amazing and only getting bigger as they release more expansions. My only qualm with Smash Up is the Obligatory Cthulu set. Other than that, this game is fantastic and I recommend that everyone at least play it once.

Smash up makes you think and makes you use your mind. This game starts off slow but once the first base is taken over the game speeds up fast. Its a great game since you can turn on your friends and try to stop there whole process that they have started. great game want to buy.

Smash Up is an excellent game that involves in-depth strategies and synergies that make the game diverse in its variety and game play, as well as a humor that is conveyed nicely throughout the game in its card artworks and titles. Very simplistic to begin with, many players will be able to understand this game and enjoy it. In my personal opinion, I love many games that involve cards (Dominion, Dragon’s Hoard, Jaipur) but this is a game that I absolutely enjoy playing with family and friends. I rate this game highly.

Print up the base mats they really help it play smoothly. I have all the expansions and it is really fun to smash up new mixes and see what happens. Lots of replay with the combinations (the Cthulhu one with madness we haven't played with yet... the madness cards seem to make it one that doesn't mix unless everyone uses it).

low learning curve, yet rewarding strategic gameplay if you learn the decks. The two expansions have completed the game IMO, covering all possible deck archetypes. The variety of inter-play between decks and bases makes every deck combo have its potential (except the ghosts still seem weak to me)

L'avevamo già adocchiato da tempo ma non sapevamo se comprarlo o meno...! Sembrava un po' spam, ma ragazzi, ci siam ricreduti al 200% una volta giocato!!!
Ci siam fatti coraggio e l'abbiamo comprato a scatola chiusa ed è stato fantastico scoprire che il gioco è veramente bello!
Set-up VELOCISSIMO, grafiche curate e belle, regolamento semplicissimo e ben curato, semplice da spiegare e giocare, vario, confezione con porta carte bellissima, prezzo giusto! Più di così cosa si può volere??? È divertente, semplice e costa pure poco! Ogni partita puó esser diversa dalle altre e ogni fazione fa sentire completamente la sua "ambientazione". In due giorni abbiamo già fatto tre partite e sicuramente diventerà uno dei titoli che giocheremo con più piacere
Il gioco base offre già molto e arriva a 9.5, ma con le espansioni sono sicuro che arriverà anche a 10

Smash Up has an interesting dilemma going against it. On the one hand, it is casual PvP area control "shufflebuilding" card game utilizing all of the fun tropes of our contemporary age, tickling a similar itch as Magic: The Gathering. On the other hand, strategically choosing two factions and then knowing how to optimally time and synergize between, not only those two factions themselves, but the bases as well as the other combinations being used by one's opponents requires a high degree of familiarity with the game (thus a relatively high learning curve) as well as beyond-casual analytic capabilities. If you play Smash Up under the former set of circumstances, that is as a casual game, you may likely not have much fun with it (depending on your group) because of the latter set of circumstances, namely the extent of the learning curve; or, if you play Smash Up relying significantly on analysis and deductive reasoning, you will, as has been the case in at least few games I've played, break the game.

That said, Smash Up is a tremendously fun game and should not be taken super seriously. This for me is the same reason I used to play Magic: The Gathering, but I stopped within a few years of playing it because too many people took it too seriously and sucked all of the fun out of it. For Smash Up though, the fun feels built into the game. Its lightheartedness with ranging thematic appeals make it a treat to play.

Oh this game has become so popular with my gaming groups. They absolutely love it. It's crazy fun and crazy fast. The games can be done in 30 min or can take up to 2 hrs if we want to play to a higher number of points. I love it. I just bought the expansion because I loved it so much! EDIT: raised my rating from 7.5 to 8.3

I am madly in love with this game. May be the perfect gamer's filler. It would not be a filler for people that cannot quote the rules of stack from Magic like it was scripture, but for those of us who can, very light and perfect. I want new factions though. Badly. The idea that as shipped, all factions are represented in a four player game rubs me wrong way. Bring on Ninja Bears!

This was a great game in GenCon. Each deck has a very different feel, and I can see the geometric progression as they release more factions. Unfortunately, they were sold out.

Super Fun! Fantastic card game for adults and kids, and for gamers and nongamers! Light card game, using your 2 unreal factions in playing out outrageous and creative combos against other unreal faction pairings and their outrageous and creative combos. Massive replayability. Cannot wait for expansions. 45 minute game. Better with 3 or 4 players.

Fantastic artwork and graphic design; really helps the feel/mood of the game.

Same game designer who made Guillotine, another fantastic card game.


Have not tried the 2 box variant; I don't see how that can play out without problems.

The capture-the-base mechanic reminds me of that of Loot, but I love this game much much much more.
