Android: Netrunner LCG Game Day (3rd Sunday of each month)

E-mail Print

Please join us on the 3rd Sunday of each month from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm for an Android: Netrunner LCG Game Day!

Android: Netrunner LCG Game Day is open to interested Players, new (still learning) Players and Veteran Players!  This Game Day will have something for everyone! 
Even if you've never played before, please come out and check it out!

The idea is to offer an easy-access and central location for Players to meet and play as well as to even get more people playing, through demos or exposure as the group plays. 

Netrunner depicts cyberspace combat between a global mega-corporation (the Corp) and a hacker (the Runner). The Corp's goal is to complete their secret agendas before the Runner can hack in and steal their data.
It isn't easy, though, as the Corp has strong defensive data forts protected by malevolent computer programs known as ICE (short for Intrusion Countermeasures Electronics).
The Runner must use special programs of their own, called icebreakers, to break through and steal the hidden plans.
All this is paid for in the game by bits (representing currency), which are earned and spent during the course of play.

An interesting feature of Netrunner is that each side has different abilities and uses completely different cards distinguished by alternate card backs.
This contrasts with most other CCGs, which usually depict a "battle between peers" where each opponent draws upon the same card pool.
While a player does not have to play both sides except in tournament play, it is commonly held that a firm understanding of both leads to better overall player ability.
