Board Games in Review – Smash Up – Munchkin Part 2

Smash Up MunchkinWell it is that time again and Happy Monday.  Today I am going to bring you part 2 of my review of Smash Up Munchkin.  You can find part 1 right here.  I already went over four of the factions and monsters in last weeks article.  I also explained how monsters actually add to the break point of bases.

When a monster is defeated usually through the use of an action the player responsible can earn treasure for defeating that monster.  Treasure cards go to your hand but once used go to their own discard pile making for just a little extra clean up.  How ever you get your treasure once in your hand they still break down into the two standard card types, Action or Minion.

Board Games in Review – Smash Up – Munchkin Part 1

Smash Up MunchkinHello Nerdarchists and board game enthusiasts.  Today I bring you another great game for your consideration, or at least part of it.  If you missed last weeks article I did Munchkin Zombies, located here.  Smash Up is a fantastic game that only gets better as it adds more options and mechanics with wonderful expansions.
Smash Up Munchkin is a stand alone expansion to the base game and can be played separately or as a standalone game much the same way Munchkin games are treated.  In this card game you get 8 new factions, a set of bases to add to your collection. new tokens of course,  and 2 new types of cards.

Will You Play Smash Up Munchkin Alone or Add it to Your Others?

Since there is so much in this box I am going to break up the review to go into depth into each pile.  The two new card types are monster, which I will talk about below and treasure which I will go into in next weeks article.  Since there are 8 factions I will also go into depth about 4 of those options below.  Again you will have to wait until next week for the others.  They are Elves, Dwarves, Halflings, Orcs, Warriors, Clerics, Mages, Thieves and Warriors.
