Hi,
just wanted to see what you chaps thought of Net Runner?

Looking to get my 16 year old son started on a card game and I was thinking about Net runner as it is played at a local shop.

How much is it to buy in?

How long does a game take?

Is it a game of skill or is it whoever buys the most expensive cards wins?

Thanks

Gary

Assuming you're talking about the current Fantasy Flight Games version of Netrunner....

It's a "Living Card Game" much like their other ones (Warhammer Invasion, Conquest, LotR, etc), and is probably their most popular LCG currently. They release $15 expansion packs monthly, and the pack gives you a full set of all the cards included. So it's not really a "He who has the most expensive cards wins" since everyone really has access to the same cards. However, it's been out for a while now, so there are A LOT of those $15 packs, and a few larger box sets as well.

It's a 2 player only asymmetrical game, if you buy a collection of cards, one of you can take all of the "Runner" cards, and the other can take all of the "Corporation" cards, and build decks to your hearts content.

A big part of the game is bluffing - since a lot of information, mainly on the Corporations side, is hidden and secret until you choose to reveal it, so it takes a specific kind of thinking to get behind.

I'd say a game takes from 10-30 minutes.

The core set is typical for Fantasy Flight were you don't have 3 copies for every card and a couple cards are just one "ofs". Data packs have 3 copies per card. Each cycle has 6 days packs and a deluxe expansion and they are on the 6th cycle I think

It's a great game. The tension is amazing.
