A guide to help you navigate Odum Library's board game collection and the world of gaming.

Smash Up

Description

What do pirates, ninjas, robots, zombies, aliens, wizards, and some other things have in common? They're all trying to take over the world! But they can't do it along - so they're teaming up. Every combo brings a different experience in this fast-passed shufflebuilding game. Take two 20-card decks, smash them together, and then rock your opponents' faces. Each faction has a different style: Pirates move cards. Zombies come back from the discard. Dinosaurs are just freaking huge. Each pairing creates different gameplay. And each game is a different throw-down! Is Smash-Up a game you can live without? Not if you're awesome. Choose a side. Choose two! And start the carnage!
