I have never played Netrunner until now.
Usually with my friends, I play quick games of M:TG on small coffee tables, in the lunch room, and even sometimes on a possible small table in public transport.
M:TG games usually last 5-10 minutes in our plays. It only requires 2d10s and two decks.
Netrunner has a lot of potential and can be strip down to play games on the go. Hear are some things what I would strip down:
- There will be no Identity cards. Instead, the Reference card will represent the HQ.
- Near the left or right of the middle of the table will be the dice bag full of tokens
- NO click tracker!
- Credit pool is kept under the R&D/Stack
- Runners installed cards (Hardware, Programs, Resources) are kept closely together, maybe even share the same line or stack on top of each other (NOT indicating being hosted!)
However, the one thing I have to try out is what should the score be? I was thinking maybe 5. Possibly even shorter?
…Just a few things to play Netrunner on the go. My objective is trying to play the game around 10-15 mins and on small surfaces. Whats your say?
