Netrunner, I love and hate this card game. The game with runs, stim hacks, hidden agendas, brain and meat damage, bad publicity, advancement tokens, ice breakers and many more terms that belong in the Android universe. It took us more than two weeks before we felt like we started to grasp all the different aspects of the… Continue reading It’s an emergency!
So, last week I participated in my first Netrunner tournament (actually my first game tournament ever!). I’ve only ever played Netrunner against Heinze in the comforts of our home. So this was quite a big step for me. I find Netrunner a very, very hard and slightly nerve wrecking game. My brain tries to grasp… Continue reading It’s just a game
It’s been eleven weeks since my last comic about Netrunner, so I thought it was about time to post this one. 😉 People that don’t know or play Netrunner really won’t get the joke, so I’ll try to explain it a little. The comic is based on the card Scorched Earth. Source: NetrunnerDB.com In Netrunner,… Continue reading Tag!
At our FLGS (friendly local gaming store) we met somebody who is a big fan of Doomtown and has very balanced decks of all the Doomtown outfits (factions). He invited to us to come play Doomtown one day and so we did. I’ll be honest: the first time it reminded me of trying to understand all… Continue reading The Weird West
Like mentioned last week, there was going to be something different this week. I’d like to introduce The Golden Standees! Our own (quite random) awards for board games! I’m not going to explain all the awarded Golden Standees, they are quite self explanatory. Perhaps the first one might be strange if you’ve never played Coup. All the players… Continue reading Presenting: The Golden Standees 2015 (pt 1)
Heinze came up with these fantastic poems of these two games we love and I just had to make a comic about it. I’ll make sure that we’ll come up with less ‘romantic’ comics for the coming weeks. 😉 And there is this last wedding-related thing I wanted to share with you guys. As a… Continue reading Board Game Vows
This is a reoccurring problem of Netrunner players: they stick to their known jargon. I’ve seen (and done it myself) with all sorts of games! “I’ll install this trait card” in EVOLUTION! A game that’s thematically so far removed from Netrunner that it doesn’t even make sense. 😉 But with Arkham Horror the Card Game… Continue reading Confusing keywords
Look at the chaos we create while building new decks, madness! 😀 A post shared by Semi Co-op (@semicoop) on May 29, 2017 at 2:21am PDT So yesterday there was a Netrunner Terminal Directive event at our FLGS. It wasn’t a tournament, but participants could either continue playing the story campaign or try to fill… Continue reading Effective communication
It’s is the 2nd of October and that means that the first two card cycles of Netrunner are officially out of play since yesterday, literally a big game changer! And with the disappearance of a lot of iconic cards, the biggest ‘loss’ (or at least the most spoken of in our meta) will be of the… Continue reading So long and thanks for all the cards
