So in a very weird set of circumstances I was able to get all three expansion packs as gifts before I received the base set (that is coming as a gift later). My question is, can I play the game with the three expansions without the actual base set? From what I can tell it is possible, but I didn't know if there was something in the base game that is necessary for use of the expansions.

Yes you can. maybe download the rules, but it very easy rules
1-play 1 minion and/or action
2-check if base scores
3-draw 2 cards, discard down to 10 cards
4-enjoy

Thanks!

Yea, in fact the expansions have 4-factions each specifically so 2-players can use it right out of the box. Rules should be included, if I recall. Enjoy!

The expansions are essentially stand alone two player games. If a bit limited. Comes with rules and tokens. If you have all three, you can easily play with 4.

you'll want the variety in bases but beyond that.. it should play well.

Actually, Awesome 9000 comes with a full new set of bases, so in a way, he's got the full game set up, minus the factions in the initial set.

He could EASILY play Smashup with all three expansions.

I read this wrong and thought you were saying that you didn't have the base deck, and I was no you can't play without bases.
