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!

A SPECIAL GAME EXPERIENCE!

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.

THINK STRATEGY!

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?!?

SCORE THE 15 NECESSARY POINTS & WIN THE GAME!

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?

Ok ..... fairly sure Im getting this, but a question for any early adopters...

- is the multiplayer async?
- is the multiplayer matching sync or async?
- anyone know if this has been updated a fair amount compared to the (often panned) steam version?

Asmodee fare will be scrutinised before purchase! Im off to play cottage garden because I dont need to ask about digidiced multiplayer implementation before buying

There is no async mode in the multiplayer. Online games take around 20 minutes each I reckon.
The mobile and Steam versions are all releasing today and have had a lot of time spent on them. The Steam version was Early Access, so understandably wasn't perfect.

From reading the android store comments, the UI is terrible apparently.

Thanks for the feedback all. I was hoping post steam early release the UI would have had a bit of love, apparently not! Well one less game for the backlog then! if the devs show up here, any plans to address UI feedback?
