AEG nos muestra la facción Pirata de Smash Up!!!

Hoy AEG, empieza ha soltar un poco de información, sobre este curioso juego que ha captado mi atención.
En teoría, pretende ser algo nuevo, dentro del universo de los juegos de cartas, intentando alejarse de los LCG y Deckbuilders.
No queda claro todavía, si lo conseguirán o no, pero de momento, y a la espera de poder leer el reglamento, la premisa inicial puede ser interesante.
Hoy podemos ver, algunas de las cartas de la facción de los Piratas y ver que mecánicas utilizan.

Ahoy there swabs! We be startin’ the preview of the Smash Up with the terrors of the high seas, the Pirates. Bringing to the game their skill with sailin’, Pirates be masters of movement you see. While not every card in their deck be about movin’ to and fro, most are, and that can create some mighty large complications for one’s opponents when it comes to the scorin’ of bases.
We be showin’ you four cards from the Pirates today, four on Friday. The rest, well, perhaps those of a strong constitution for treasure huntin’ may be finding them before the release of the game, but likely not.

The Pirate King
Smash Up Pirate King

How best to be startin’ but with the master of the sails? The Pirate King brings power and surprise to the seas. Aye, your opponents will know he’s out sailin’ the waters, but they will always have to be afraid of his sudden ability to go full sail towards a scoring base, procuring the points they so valiantly fought for, right from under their noses.

The First Mate
Smash Up First Mate
A hearty and good lad, bright eyed and dreamin’ of being a mighty pirate. He could have taken his chances on Melee Island but he chose to come with us instead! That be an in-joke for those of the computer-gamin’ persuasion… Anyway, the First Mate be a tough little fellow to crack. Once he’s on the table, as it were, his enthusiasm keeps him around much longer than most. Aye, if he be getting several First Mates in play, one can move a great amount of power from base to base indeed.
Full Sail
Smash Up Full Sail

The open sea, nothing better than feeling that salty air movin’ through your locks. Well, nothing better except stealing victory from those slimy dogs against you, eh? Full Sail can be used as a normal action or, due to our keen senses, it can be used as a Special, stealin’ yet another win from those dirty swabs. And note that we don’t care who be on the ships, those little green men, the quiet ones in the black pajamas, whoever, we’ll bring ‘em along if they be helpin’ us claim the booty… as it were.

Smash Up Pirate Cannon

Ah the smell of blackpowder as it brings a wretched dog’s vessel to Davey Jones’ locker. We can’t all be about sailin’, every so often even the most keen of us must mix fightin’ into our repartee. The Cannon may be a simple weapon for us of the pirating nature, but it does the job well. Be joinin’ our crew on Friday for more of your Pirate lessons!
All the Pirates be lovingly illustrated by a one Francisco Rico Torres.

When last we left you, the tactics of piratin’ be coming clear to you, we hope. Yet we thought today we’d let you come aboard and learn a bit more of our sea-farin’ ways.

Saucy Wench
Saucy Wench
Aye, here be a sight for water-logged eyes. Of course, more than just looks, this lass brings quite a bit of fire with her. ‘Tis one thing to move to a base, but you’ll be wantin’ that base to be cleared of opposition. Just send in this jewel of the seas.

While the mighty vessels we ply the waves with be the stuff of legend, we know the need for simple, practical modes of transport. The humble dinghy has gotten many a pirate out of, or into, trouble.

A strong buck this one be. And he’s learned the piratin’ ways well. ‘Tis always a better choice to flee and fight another day than throw ones life away over what might be a small bit of plunder. Now a large bit of plunder…

Ah Tortuga, that fine home of refined gentlemen and ladies… bwahaha! Nay, this be our port away from home, or our home away for port depending on the day. And being good pirates, we know leave ways to take advantage of even a loss should violence break out at dear Tortuga.
Note: Bases are themed after the factions in the set, but have no inherent bonus or penalty based on the factions there.
And with that we’ve given you a look into our life at sea. What? Pardon me…
Strange lad, one of the wee ones here was singing some song ’bout how well we’d done and askin’ how many gold doubloons we’d earned… no idea what’s in his head…
We’ll be sailin’ off now. Islands to explore, treasure to be had. We hear that next week a strange group from the far east may be joinin’ you. I’d watch out for those fellows though, they are a sneaky lot.

  1. Cuando lei de que iba el juego me llamó mucho la atención, y es que en cuanto me comentan que es una mecánica totalmente novedosa me despiertan la curiosidad.
    Aunque la verdad es que, viendo las imágenes, no me gustan mucho.

  2. Esperemos, parece curioso, pero veremos que tal puede estar una vez leído el reglamento.
