FFG Announcing a “new” LCG – Netrunner: The Card Game

Hello Nurglings!

Okay, so I’m just going to share this announcement cause I love the setting of “Android”.
A world that actually started with the board game called Android, and has since then gotten plenty of products surrounding this world like books and most importantly: more games. This is one of them.

Let me share the announcement message with you.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of Android: Netrunner! Originally designed by Richard Garfield and released in 1996, Netrunner was widely hailed as one of the greatest customizable card games of its era. Now, with Android: Netrunner, players can look forward to revisiting the game’s exciting play… or experiencing it for the first time.

Android: Netrunner is an asymmetrical Living Card Game™ for two players. Set in the cyberpunk future of Android, the game pits a megacorporation and its massive resources against the subversive talents of lone runners. Corporation players try to score points by advancing their agendas, and netrunners try to score points by breaking through the corporation’s defenses and stealing valuable data. The first player to seven points wins the game, but not likely before he suffers some brain damage or bad publicity.

So I read that, and sure that sounds like a good pitch and all. But what really got me into it, was the awesome artworks and feel! If any of you played the old RPG Shadow Run and enjoyed that world, you will love this. Sadly there is no magic in the mix, but the world still excites me in the very same way.

I know a certain person that probably won’t be able to stay away from this game (he truly loves the Android universe), and when he gets this, I will be testing the hell out of it! I will be sure to tell you what I think about it once I do.

Until next time Nurglings, take care.
Cya soon!
