Alderac Entertainment Group has announced plans to release a sci-fi themed expansion for its hit card game Smash Up in March. Smash Up: Science Fiction Double Feature will bring four new decks to the “shuffle-building” game.
The Science Fiction Double Feature expansion has 88 cards which are useable for a two player game right out of the box, and can be combined with any Smash Up set to support up to four players. The box also contains a VP token sheet and a rulebook.
The new factions each bring new abilities to the game. Time Travelers allow players to reuse their cards repeatedly, while Cyborg Apes take actions that attach to player’s minions to a whole new level. The Super Spies can use their espionage skills to plot out not only the player’s future but also their opponent’s, and the Shapeshifters could be anybody.
The Smash Up base game was featured on June’s TableTop and was placed on ICv2’s Top 10 Card/Building Games in the past in the Fall of 2012.
Players: 2 (up to 4 with additional sets)
Time: 45+ minutes
Release: March 2014
