Product Description

Product Description

Richard Garfield’s classic cyberpunk card game returns cleaner, sharper, more flavorful, and better than ever with the release of Android Netrunner: The Card Game! This two-player Living Card GameTM of megacorps, runners, and cybercrime pits monolithic megacorps against subversive netrunners in a high-stakes struggle for valuable data. Humanity has spread its wings and taken trade to the far reaches of the solar system, having colonized the Moon and Mars. Visionary corporations created braintaping techniques that have led to the development of lifelike artificial intelligence. As these massive corporations guard their intellectual property on the network behind layers of ice, netrunners seek to expose their secrets, for ideological reasons or for profit.

Box Contains

Box Contains: 252 cards, 7 unique identity cards, 1 Action Summary for each side and 1 Action tracker for each side, rules

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Game 1 Nov 2012

Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was a little worried at first that the learning curve of this game would make it difficult to teach another person especially given that I'd never played it before myself.

I needn't have worried, although there the game is a little more complicated than most the mechanics fit the theme so well that learning is really easy. The terminology used throughout the rules at first seemed overly obtuse, for example always referring to the corporation's hand as "HQ", however I ultimately found that it helped things fit together nicely in my head. Soon I was seeing a collection of servers in front of me, each protected by neat rows of electronic countermeasures. I found that as a game its far easier to set up than a traditional board game and getting a game going was stress free once we had the card decks in order.

The game is fast paced once both parties get familiar with the rules and the decks included with the box provide a huge variety of play styles. Each deck can fight its own corner and is nicely balanced so beginners don't need to worry about being forced into the sometimes daunting world of deck building before they're ready. Gameplay itself is highly bluff based and makes for really fun interaction between players as they try to suss each others plans out.

The quality of the cards themselves, both their material quality and the artwork, is universally high and there's as many tokens included as you'll ever need.

In summation, a fun, thematic game that you can play hours on end. As we continued to play the depth kept growing and I don't think you can come across a boxed game with such a great enjoyment to cost ratio.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game, so addictive... 2 April 2013
Verified Purchase
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I wanted to get into a card game so i could play with my housemate and after much deliberation and investigations on the net (my housemate is a big Star Wars fan so that LCG was considered as well as GoT and LotR) i decided on A:NR.

It is without a doubt a great game. There are other reviews explaining the nuances of the game so i wont get into them, except to say it is very addictive.

Our first few games typically took a little over 2 hours to complete and when teaching a new person, it will take this amount of time as well. After a few games, however, this time will be reduced to approx. 1 hour or so depending on how fast the runner is, as usually their go will last a bit longer.

I would definitely recommend watching the tutorial video on the fantasy flight games website and for each player to read through the rulebook. The recommended starting combo is to have Jinteki as corporation but as they are usually cited as being the weakest of the 4 corps. one of the other (Weyland Consortium or Hass Bioroid are good choices) might be better for starting off.

First impressions are that the runner is sligtly overpowered as they win more games at the beginning. However, over time as the corps start deckbuilding from the other corps things balance out nicely.

One thing i will say also is that if you are agonising over getting more than 1 core set, 1 core set is fine for normal playing around with your friends. 2 or 3 sets is really only needed for compeitive play.

A couple of rules that we got wrong at the start and we didnt pick up on for a couple of games. The runner does not have a draw phase meaning that he has to spend that extra click he has if he wants to draw a card.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easily one of the best games ever created 9 Jan 2013

Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Instead of writing a professional, thorough review as I'm used to doing, I'm going to let my enthusiasm speak and confirm what a countless number of gamers already have said - the game is simply legendary.

The Internet said it all: one of the best mechanics of all time, great art, an awesome game. I say it's all true. Never in my life a card game delivered on promises and hype so completely.

As a long time Magic the Gathering player, I was constantly searching for another card game to invest my time and money in, only to see those games ripping MtG off or have uninteresting mechanics/theme. Netrunner has none of those problems. The most surprising thing is, Netrunner was originally created (in 1996) by Magic's father - Richard Garfield. Yet, those games almost couldn't be more different in terms of... actually everything - feel, mechanics, theme.

Speaking of theme, if you ever wished a card game to make you feel like a powerful character in a game's world, then your search is over. Netrunner's immersion factor is unprecedented. You really are building digital defences behind which you execute your evil plans or trying to hack the hell out of corporation's servers - for personal gain or sense of achievement. Many cards' names and flavor texts are clever or simply hilarious and always appropriate.

Core set box is gorgeous and packed with content, those seven decks alone are going to keep everyone busy for months. I have absolutely no problem with execution of any of the components. Each card and token is colorful and durable.

The game's pretty much perfect as it is. The only thing that can go wrong are future expansions that would destroy fun by overpowered cards and dumb mechanics, or rule changes.
