Smash Up Digital news.

If you have already purchased Smash Up from Nomad Games in Early Access, Asmodee Digital will now provide you with an updated and improved version for free.
If you downloaded the free version from Nomad Games during Early Access, the full game is now for sale as a complete package with all original factions included.

When the game was in Early Access, Smash Up was provided free with limited factions (3 factions) and players could pay to expand the game to have the base pack of cards like in the physical game version plus The Geeks deck for free.
Now the game is now a single premium priced package with all the factions available that were originally sold as separate items.

Hereafter are the main differences between the early access version and the premium version that was launched on the 12th of October;

nine factions sold as a single package
cross-platform play
new chat feature
detailed tutorial
improved UI
support for French and German languages

The free component of the game from the Early Access version will thus be discontinued.

We'd like to take the time to thank all of you for giving Smash Up your time and attention and we are especially grateful to all those people that took the time to provide feedback and help move Smash Up towards to the high-quality game it is today.

About This Game

Smash Up is the 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?!?

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?
