Welcome to the second in a series (of four…that’s a series, right?) of Smash Up micro-expansion reviews for one of my favourite games from Alderac Entertainment Group.

My August 2022 Gaming

Alderac Micro-Expansions Looking Really Cool

Just a brief post today because I saw something that I found very cool on Boardgame Geek and I felt I had to share. What is a micro-expansion? Micro-expansions are a set of cards or some other small piece of an already-published game that… Continue Reading “Alderac Micro-Expansions Looking Really Cool”

The OP & AEG Announce New Marvel Smash Up Factions

Even after all of this time, I’m still kind of on the fence regarding the idea of Alderac Entertainment Group and the OP teaming up to do an officially licensed Smash Up expansion. The idea is cool, and I’m sure the execution will be there,… Continue Reading “The OP & AEG Announce New Marvel Smash Up Factions”
