Hi, i am a big fan of Smash Up and i made a randomizer for all expansions and decks.It currently runs on android devices only but i plan to port it on iOS too. You can select which expansions you have and even then you can de-select some decks that you dont want to be played. You can either fast-randomize selecting number of players or you can store player names and select from a list those that are currently on the table.

Now i would like to hear some suggestions for some next steps. I am thinking about two new features, either let user pick way of randomizing ( maybe snake-draft or 2-out-of-3 etc ) or, let user keep final score of each game and maybe, on the long run, see statistics of wins either by player or mostly by deck. Which of these sounds more appealing to you?

Lastly, i am currently thinking of putting some ads (nothing distracting, i mostly hate them too) before uploading to store. I have used some icons that i have found here on file section of smash up ( https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/117116/smash-random-selec... ), would that be cool? Also, if anyone know anything about that, putting ads on an app like that, acknowledging that i am not alderac, is ok also, right?

I think some sort of drafting would be best.

I only have iOS, any clue when you plan to port over? I've been looking for a randomizer so this would be really helpful to me.

If this is a for-profit venture (which it is, considering the ads), I would get AEG's permission. They do have a copyright on all art and images.

Here is a webapp that does the basics of what you're talking about:

The design is more minimalistic than what you're proposing, but it has all the same capabilities. For example, you can do the 2-out-of-3 method by clicking Random three times before clicking Change Color.
