Smash City features a dexterity-based game mechanic to represent rampaging giant monsters, challenging players to roll their oversized dice in an effort to knock over the 3-dimensional cardboard buildings. Damaged building can release energy, such as fire, electricity, radiation, and poison gas, which monsters can then use to power up their attacks. Destroying buildings also grants a player “SMASH!” cards that give their monster special abilities.
Smash City was designed by Stephen Avery (Nothing Personal). It comes with 4 large foam monster dice, 1 city map, 3-dimensional buildings, army tiles, car tiles, player boards, and a deck of SMASH! cards. The game is intended for 2 to 4 players, ages 14 and up, and takes about half an hour to play. MSRP is $39.99.
WizKids has also set a March release date for its push-your-luck game K’uh Nah (see “Design the Best Mayan Pyramid in ‘K’uh Nah’”) and a licensed Dungeons & Dragons board game (see “‘Dungeons & Dragons – Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage’ Board Game”).
