Awesome Level 9000

Awesome Level Over 9000 is a ‘’must have’’ expansion for Smash Up veterans. The new factions introduce core mechanics to the gameplay, like moving around.. a lot!

A rage-quitter favorite, Bear Cavalry, will make moving between bases a dangerous game, most of the times deadly. Ghosts get you to discard cards like mad, rewarding you with extra VPs or insane burst power.

Killer Plants grow incredibly fast, and keep many debuffs under their sleeve. Last, but definitely not least, we get Steampunks, an action (on a base) based deck with tons of movement, that will make for the most interesting combinations as you keep growing your Smash Up collection.

The expansion needs a few playthroughs to let you incorporate the new mechanics, but you’re guaranteed to experience over 9000 strategies!

Awesome Level 9000 is the 1st expansion (2nd set) of Smash Up, and it already changed some of the main strategies of the game for good. Some factions move between bases a lot, and from now on it’s not gonna be such a safe thing to do.  Discarding from now on can be rewarding instead of a scary nightmare. This expansion makes a very fun mess in gameplay and it suits perfect the profile of a hardcore player of Smash Up!

You are given 4 factions, 8 bases that pair the factions included in the box, and  all the 16 core set bases awesomely reanimated! If you own the Core Set, there are 12 factions and 24 bases, which makes 66 possible pairs of factions by now, This is only the beginning!

The expansion includes the first VPs (Victory Points), colored with the basic ones, blue and yellow. If you own some of the latest sets, you already know that you can use them as power counters as well, if you don’t, we suggest to read more about this here! The special card dividers are included in “The Big Geeky Box”, as most of all.

Fresh things first, the faction that makes all the “moving-based” factions tremble in their sight. Bear Cavalry! Their talents and abilities are extraordinary as their basic strategy is to move enemies on bases where they have more power or actions that allows them to show-off a marvelous insta-kill. Hard to destroy them or avoid them on game.

Ghosts follow a crazy-scary tactic on gameplay. You have to trust them! Discard as much as you can, keep the ones you need in hand and don’t worry, they are generous! They reward player with discard pile minions, extreme power or even VPs! You can do everything as far as you’re not afraid to discard. They are your friends, they are protecting you from the dead!

Killer Plants are here to cause trouble, overgrow, suffokate and confuse their enemies. Search your deck for minions that turn your “sprouts” to (killer) flowers! Their abilities allow them extra minions, drawing cards or even subtract power from themselves to make things even more confusing. Their actions are kinda “anti-moving”, fact very helpful if you compete Bears, Pirates etc.

Finally, Steampunks, is a deck that mostly owns incredible “play-on-base” actions, that even if they’ve been destroyed, getting them back from the discard pile can happen in a heartbeat!! Most of them are power-ups and the others make moving between bases really easy. Minions of the faction work awesome combined with their actions as most of them get their abilities activated by them.

Factions of this set combine perfectly with some of Core factions and some future factions as well. We have to admit though, that it might be hard to play at first if you are not kinda geek and don’t know abilities of other factions of the game well. But, well, if you do find them, victory is in your hands!
