Descriptions of New Smash Up Marvel Factions
The Ultimates: The cosmic themed faction that has the likes of Captain Marvel and Spectrum moves quickly from one base to another, allowing its member to attack from afar.
The Avengers: Six well-known and loved characters including Iron Man and Hulk have robust powers that are enhanced by items that were made just for them, creating impactful results.
Spider-Verse: Moving with spectacular speed is this deck’s forte, which means a quick response and special actions that boost the power of its stealthy arachnid characters.
S.H.I.E.L.D.: These highly-skilled agents infiltrate the battlefield with intensely honed team effort.
Masters of Evil: Diabolical members like Baron Zemo are built to become more aggressive as the game goes on, claiming more points through their nefarious plots.
The Kree: Otherworldly and steadfast, their leader The Supreme Intelligence is able to add power to the other members of this militaristic faction.
Hydra: If one member falls, two can take its place, resulting in intentional sacrifices that evildoers Arnim Zola and Red Skull will have no problem putting into effect.
The Sinister Six: The city is at this group’s mercy as they have base modifiers that lower breakpoints and allow characters like Doctor Octopus to grab up Victory points as he pleases.
About Smash Up
The “shufflebuilding” game Smash Up begins with a simple premise: take the 20-card decks of two factions, shuffle them into a deck of forty cards, then compete to crush more Bases than your opponents! Each faction involves a different gaming mechanism – the pirates move the cards, the zombies bring back the cards from the discard pile, the dinosaurs have enormous power – and each combination of factions brings a different gaming experience.
