My Android: Netrunner Resources

I’ve pondered Android Netrunner Must Haves before, but didn’t go into much detail about the game itself, or the resources I use to gather information about it. I’ll leave details about the game for another day, but a quick basic before I jump to the meat of this post. I’ve also expanded my Board Gaming in the Canton/Akron Area post to include more information about Netrunner locally.

Android Netrunner is a Living Card Game put out by Fantasy Flight Games. A Living Card Game is sort of like a Collectible Card Game (think Magic the Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh, etc.) but you don’t have to chase cards as the packs aren’t randomly packed. The core sets, and every expansion pack has the same cards as another core or expansion of the same name. Android: Netrunner is based off the original Netrunner game, designed by Richard Garfield, the guy who created Magic the Gathering, Robo Rally, and King of Tokyo among several others. In it, two players play against one another, one as a corporation who is trying to advance their agendas, the other a runner (Cypberpunk hacker) is trying to steal the corporation’s agendas. The corporation wins if they can force the player to discard more cards then they have in their hand (called flat lining) or by scoring 7 agenda points (each agenda card is worth 2 or more points, but it takes time and money to advance an agenda in order to score it). The Runner wins if they steal 7 points of agendas from the corporation, or if the corporation has to draw a card when they have no more cards to draw (I’ve never heard a game ending that way, but I guess it could happen).

Okay, to the real meat of this post, the who, what and whens of information. This is just a quick list as I need to get to bed, I’ll modify and adjust this as time goes on.

  1. Yes… there should be a floating bar to the right with Twitter and all those sort of things… though I don’t update Twitter much, even less than this site.
