The Smash Up core game features 8 distinct factions that you can mix and match to defeat your opponents.

Pirates move cards around the table keeping your opponents unbalanced.

Ninja strike from the shadows and steal victories from under enemies.

Zombies refuse to stay in the discard pile, continually returning to the fight.

Robots churn themselves off the factory line with frightening efficiency.

Dinosaurs (with lasers) bring stunning power to the fight, dwarfing their opposition.

Wizards use their arcane knowledge to secure whatever  cards you may need at the time.

Tricksters use their mischievous nature to make life extremely difficult for opponents.

Aliens change the very nature of the battle, moving enemies about, and manipulating the Base cards you fight for.

Combine these groups into teams of two for various effects!  Smash Up contains 16 Base cards to compete over.
