This is a weekly meetup to play the Android: Netrunner LCG at Pandemonium Books and Games in Central Square!
Android: Netrunner is an asymmetrical Living Card Game where players act as either a shady megacorporation or a sly hacker known as a "Runner" to advance or reveal hidden agendas in a futuristic cyberpunk dystopia. As a Living Card Game, Netrunner is a collectible deck-builder, similar to Magic: The Gathering. Unlike TCGs like Magic: The Gathering however, you know exactly what cards you will get in every pack, so no need to spend tons of money trying to get the best cards. We also fully allow print-and-play proxies to be used in all games, so there is no need to buy Netrunner cards at all, if you have a printer and some card sleeves.
If you want to learn more, I would suggest watching Team Covenant's Learning Netrunner Videos (
) and read up on the current state of the game either at the Netrunner subreddit (r/netrunner) or on nisei.net. You can also play practice games at jinteki.net!
We play mostly using the NISEI Standard format ( http://nisei.net/op/supported-formats ), but sometimes we play other formats as well! If you are completely new to the game and don't have a collection, feel free to stop by and we'll be happy to teach you (and we will have decks for you to play with)! No matter how experienced you are at playing Netrunner, other collectible card games, or board games in general, we are more than happy to teach beginners and welcome them to the game.
Sometimes we have GNK (Game Night Kit) tournaments during our usual meetup time instead of casual playing. If a GNK is happening, we'll post about it in the Meetup listing. Also, larger Regional tournaments happen occasionally on the weekend. If a Regional is coming up, you can read about it on alwaysberunning.net or the Pandemonium Books & Games website.
