The FAQ for Android: Netrunner The Card Game is Now Available
Android: Netrunner The Card Game | Published 03 October 2012

In the high-stakes cyberstruggles of Android: Netrunner The Card Game, one false step or one errant click can send you crashing into a lethal blast of static. Corporations need to shore up their every defense or risk losing their most valuable secrets to talented hackers. Runners who accidentally trip a data mine may find themselves vulnerable to sentry ice that can cause permanent brain damage, or they may just find their homes tagged for demolition.

There is no room for muddied vision or uneasy guesses. Fortunately, the Android: Netrunner FAQ (pdf, 6.9 MB) is now available for download.

Designed to clarify rules, and address your most pressing questions, the FAQ comes in both an interactive version, which allows you to see each of the cards discussed by scrolling over their titles, and a printer-friendly version (pdf, 429 KB). Both versions are available on the game’s support page.

To further clarify the FAQ’s primary contributions, Lead Developer Lukas Litzsinger offers a brief introduction:

Lukas Litzsinger on the Android: Netrunner FAQ

Greetings Corps and Runners!

This first FAQ for Android: Netrunner includes rule clarifications, frequently asked questions, and updated timing charts. At this time, no cards have received errata.

The rule clarifications include information on abilities that trigger when cards are accessed, the definition of “bypass,” and the timing of accessing Archives. 

There are answers to frequently asked questions about Parasite, Net Shield, Tollbooth, Femme Fatale, Cell Portal, and many other cards. 

We have also included updated timing charts to replace the timing charts in the Core Set rulebook. Most of the changes are for readability and to help players distinguish the order of the steps better. However, the original timing structure of a run mistakenly prevented the Corporation from rezzing cards before the Runner encountered the first piece of ice during a run. This has been corrected. The timing structure of a turn has also been updated to allow the Corporation to rez cards and score agendas after the mandatory draw and before the Corp’s first action.

If you have further questions, please submit them via our Rules Question form. Thanks for playing, and remember: always be running!
