Android: Netrunner is an asymmetrical Living Card Game for two players. Set in the cyberpunk future of Android and Infiltration, the game pits a mega corporation and its massive resources against the subversive talents of lone runners.
Corporations seek to score agendas by advancing them. Doing so takes time and credits. To buy the time and earn the credits they need, they must secure their servers and data forts with "ice". These security programs come in different varieties, from simple barriers, to code gates and aggressive sentries. They serve as the corporation's virtual eyes, ears, and machine guns on the sprawling information superhighways of the network. The first player to seven points wins the game, but not likely before he suffers some brain damage or bad publicity.
Summoner Wars is a fast-playing, action-packed card game for 2-4 players in which they take on the role of Summoners: powerful beings who harness the power of mysterious Summoning Stones to lead their race to conquest on the war-torn planet of Itharia.
These Summoners wield terrible magic on the battlefield, freezing their foes in place, draining their enemies of power, and even bringing rains of fire down from the heavens. But most notoriously, they summon their great race's hordes of warriors to the battlefield, to clash in the never-ending struggle for supremacy. A Summoner is both mage and general, and must combine their wizardly might with clever tactics to defeat the enemy Summoner on the opposite side of the battle.
The Summoner Wars Master Set contains six new and different complete factions from which to choose:
Tactics determine the effectiveness of those cards in battle. Call walls of stone to protect you in combat and serve as magic portals for you to summon your warriors. Call your forces forth and send them in a surging wave against your enemy. Cast spells that bolster your forces and cut down those who would oppose you. Victory can come only from the death of your opponent's Summoner...
As with all the Data Packs from the Genesis Cycle, Trace Amount reinforces the core mechanics and personalities of the game's seven factions, all while allowing players greater means to narrow their focus and refine their strategies. Trace Amount is a perfect Data Pack for fans of bluffing as its many events and operations open new surprises and synergies, and prove in more than one way that a card in the hand is worth two or more actions on the table. And as one might expect, in a Data Pack all about bluffing and surprises, Jinteki features prominently, gaining a new identity.
What Lies Ahead is the first Data Pack in the Genesis Cycle for Android: Netrunner The Card Game. Its sixty cards (three copies each of twenty different cards) expand the base game, adding muscle and theme to each of the Core Set's seven different factions. The Corps each receive a new agenda and flavorful piece of ice while the Runners launch into the ongoing cyber struggles with new icebreakers and support cards. Additionally, the Anarch and Haas- Bioroid factions each pursue new interests with a new identity card.
