(Edit – 12/20/19: For those of you finding this article in some other way, the review is up!)
Smash Up is a game with a special place in my heart, mainly because it had to earn its way there. When I first played it, I didn’t really care for it; even tried to trade it away.
When nobody bit on it (maybe because I had no expansions?), I decided to give it another try, and now I really enjoy it. I have three expansions for it now and will be adding to that.
My list of yet-to-buy expansions has grown, unfortunately, as Alderac Entertainment Group (AEG) has now released That 70s Expansion, another creatively-named edition following the likes of Cease & Desist.
In this expansion, we get four new factions to try to figure out how to best play, all based on genres made popular in 70s movies and TV.
Joining the Smash Up team are the following factions:
- Disco Dancers
- Kung Fu Fighters
My favourite card of the ones AEG included in their email has to be Shift from the Vigilantes faction.
Once again, designer Paul Peterson hits it out of the park with his parodies. The Vigilante faction has heroes like Brojack, Dusty Henry, Foxy Green, Jackie Bill and many more.
I’m behind on my expansions, so it may be a while before I get this one. Or maybe I’ll get it before I get the others I’m missing.
But rest assured…this will be bought. (Editor: Ew, he just made a blood oath…clean that up!)
