Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce that the Android: Netrunner Core Set is back in stock at retailers!
The initial fan response to Android: Netrunner has been truly astonishing, and this is your chance to join the thousands of players around the world who have picked up their Core Sets and tapped into the game’s high-stakes cybercrime. Join the growing community of players building Corporate servers and hacking into them!
In Android: Netrunner, one player assumes the identity of one of the game’s four monolithic megacorporations, each of which manages a vast financial empire as it attempts to develop and distribute the latest and greatest innovations in its field. The Corp player seeks to advance corporate agendas to score them and earn their points. However, the other player assumes the role of an individualistic, subversive criminal known as a runner. Runners hack into corporate servers in order to discover the secrets the giant megacorps would rather the world never saw. When they access corporate agendas, they steal them and score their points for themselves. The first player to seven points wins.
The ensuing cat-and-mouse struggles escalate as the Corp installs defense programs known as ice and the Runner seeks new ways and new icebreakers to hack through them. Each player works with a limited number of actions per turn, but has tremendous freedom in how he uses those actions. The asymmetrical game play of Android: Netrunner creates radically different experiences for the Corp and Runner as they pursue different sets of available actions, and the strategies they pursue, the facedown cards they play, and the cards they hold in their hands create multiple opportunities for subtle bluffs and feints. In Android: Netrunner, the game isn’t just about which cards you have, but it’s how you play them!
A Modern Classic
Reimagining Richard Garfield’s much beloved Netrunner card game, Android: Netrunner transports the gritty, cyberpunk feel of the game to the Android universe and updates the basic mechanics for the fixed-distribution, LCG format.
Now, Android: Netrunner is fast becoming a modern classic as card gamers everywhere have jacked into its strategic challenges and creative opportunities. Seven different factions add greater dimension to the game’s asymmetrical challenges, ice and icebreakers place emphasis on your ability to generate and spend credits efficiently, and traces benefit players who can bluff straight-faced.
