Smash Up is custom-built for adding factions from pretty much every genre. Well, thanks to the team-up between AEG and The OP Games, we're getting some new decks coming in the form of Smash Up: Marvel. Yup, your favorite superheroes will soon have cards of their own trying to break bases and defeat minions.
From the post:
Last year, Alderac Entertainment Group (AEG) and Usaopoly (The Op) announced their freshly penned partnership to bring official licenses to AEG’s popular “shufflebuilding” game franchise, Smash Up, this year and beyond. Quickly garnering excitement on social media, followers began anticipating what the new year had in store for their ever-growing collections.
The Op is thrilled to reveal the first license to welcome pop-culture fans into the fold: Smash Up: Marvel!
For hobbyists on the outside of this entertaining fusion of illustrated worlds, Smash Up is a card game designed by Paul Peterson (Pokemon, Magic: The Gathering) that lets competitive archetype enthusiasts face-off for virtual territory, using dream teams that they pair up. These fictional armies, called factions, have comprised everything from campy characters (Kaiju, Disco Dancers) to relatable clichés (Geeks, Rock Stars)—but players of the award-winning title can now celebrate having superheroes and villains of galactic proportions at their disposal.
Smash Up: Marvel will allow seasoned players and newcomers of all ages to join the limitless clashing with comic mainstays, such as the vigilant members of The Ultimates and criminal masterminds HYDRA as two of eight factions leading the charge!
