Hi everyone!

I really like Smash Up, but it's not a favourite of some of my friends, so I unfortunately can't go all out and get all the expansions, sadly. I currently own the base game, Pretty Pretty, and It's All Your Fault.

I really love Pretty Pretty, especially the ponies and princesses for their functionality and features (though the kitties are super cute!), and I really like the greek gods and superheroes from It's All Your Fault. I like the tornadoes, sharks, and dragons too, but the others match my style of gameplay better.

What expansion would you recommend me to get next? I am really interested in picking up a new one.

Thanks so much

Smash Up: Munchkin is a fun big box expansion for Smash Up.

I like Awesome Level 9000. Steampunk and Killer Plants are two of my favorite factions.

I'd say you have a good set (I've been paring down my smashup collection) but if you add one set, add the Awesome level 9000.

I'm a big fan of Cease and Desist

I have bias of course... so I could say all of them!!! But I would recommend Awesome Level 9000 or Cease and Desist next given what you said. Science Fiction Double Feature might be a good follow up one.

It's Your Fault all the way.

You get 5 factions for the price of one. Sharks and Dragons are really fun to play, Greeks can get really insane, and Tornadoes and Superheroes are cool, but maybe a bit more boring with more expansions.

Based on what you say you like (Princesses, Mythical Horses, Greek Myths and Superheroes - all have beafy minions or can make big plays), I think you will most likely like:
In AL9K: Steampunk, Bear Cavalry, and probably Killer Plants
In TOCS: Elder Things
In SFDF: Cyber Apes, maybe Shapeshifters
In Monster Smash: Werewolves
In Munchkin Smash: Orcs, Warriors, maybe Halflings and Dwarves
In C&D: Changerbots, Astroknights

I would recommend C&D or AL9K for you.
(Edit: apparently I came to the same conclusion as Todd from AEG. Both of our feedbacks are clearly based on what you wrote, and not on our own preferences)

You will almost certainly need the Big Geeky Box to store all your stuff.

I would suggest either AL9K or C&D for your next expansion after the Box. I personally like the Cthulhu set and the Munchkin set, but to each his/her own.

I think either Munchkin or Cthulhu may be reasonable buys, simply because it makes the game play on a different way that may appeal more to those who do not love Smash Up in your group.

Some of my friends were starting to get bored with the game. Munchkin Smash Up helped me out tons with that.

Basically this... You upgrade the base cards from the first game, while getting 4 solid and fun factions to play with.
