This is becoming almost a weekly thing! Or maybe it just seems that way.
Anyway, with my latest expansion acquisition (not the latest expansion period, since I am nothing if not eclectic (Editor: You mean random, right?) in my Smash Up buying habits).
Still haven’t come up with the meta joke yet to open these reviews, but I guess that will probably happen with the last one.
Ain’t that always the way!
My latest expansion is What Were We Thinking? The expansion is once again designed by the illustrious (and probably extremely handsome) Paul Peterson with art this time by Alberto Tavira, Marcel Stobinski, Gong Studios, and Francisco Rico Torres. It is once again published by Alderac Entertainment Group (AEG) and was released in 2017.
If I keep on getting and reviewing Smash Up expansions, I’m going to have to come up with some creative openings that don’t all sound the same. Maybe make up some meta joke that will carry throughout the reviews? Not sure on that one.
Cease and Desist is probably one of the funniest expansions I have seen for this game (I’ve seen them all, just not in action). It comes this close to being copyright infringement, but in such a hilarious way that I’m sure the executives at HBO/CBS/Lucasfilm/Hasbro are laughing their asses off rather than trying to fight through the parody laws.
Ok, not always. It sort of sucks to be driving along late at night and then suddenly you’re in a construction hold-up in line with other cars that you weren’t expecting and there’s no way to turn around or bail.
But some surprises are wonderful.
Like when you see the badge on your App Store icon, go in to see what’s been updated, and you find out Onirim has a new expansion available!
Called “Crossroads & Dead Ends,” this expansion adds 16 more cards to your deck.
There are 6 Crossroads cards, two of each basic type (Sun, Moon, Key). What’s special about these is that they are multi-coloured, which means that they can be used as any colour.
Which is especially helpful when it’s a key and you draw a door, as it will open any of them.
