We’re totally jazzed to be hosting Fantasy Flight’s Plugged-In Tour for the Android: Netrunner Living Card Game, which is coming up at the store on Saturday, October 26th 10am-6pm.
The Plugged-In Tour is a celebration of the Netrunner LCG taking place all across the country. FFG staff members will travel across the United States to visit select retailers and promote the dystopian, cyberpunk struggles of Android: Netrunner. At each store they visit, FFG staff will host learn-to-play demos, face off against fans in staff challenges, and run a tournament with exciting prizes. Every player who participates in any of the events will also have a chance to affect the future of the Android: Netrunner storyline. FFG will unveil two upcoming runners, and every Plugged-In participant can vote for the one they prefer. The winning runner will be added to the game, while the losing runner will be deleted!
The focus of the game day is the tournament, which starts at 11am sharp. This mini-event will offer exciting, exclusive prizes for those who earn them – including Netrunner playmats and a messenger bag! We’ll also be offering an alternate-art Gabriel Santiago card to anyone who participates in the event, including playing a demo, or challenging one of the FFG staff to a game of Netrunner.
The tournament will be played using Swiss-style pairings. Each player must bring both one Corporation and one Runner deck to the tournament. Players will play both decks against each opponent. The latest version of the tournament rules for the Netrunner tournament can be found here. Please make sure that you’re up-to-date on these before attending. Registration for the tournament opens at 10am. All players should show up with pre-filled deck lists to assist with a speedy registration. We suggest using the excellent CardGameDB for their deck builder, but any legible format will be accepted.
But even if you don’t want to play in the tournament, there will be plenty of things for you to dig into. Never played and want a proper demo? An intermediate Runner wanting to get some tips directly from Fantasy Flight’s staff? Walk-ins will be very welcome throughout the day, and we’d love to see you in the store.
Being invited to host the Netrunner Plugged-In Tour is a very exclusive opportunity that we’re extremely proud to be a part of. With over forty-eight participants already signed up for the tournament, we’re sure it’s going to be a great day of Netrunning!
