Very interesting effect on this one. And amazing art.

Jinteki is really developing a "crazy effect" theme for their ice. I love it.

And Hourglass is nice support for Haas's bioroid ice.

I am not too crazy about these "wierd" Jintenki effects, but I love Hourglass. It is both smart and fits nicely into the Haas Bioroid play style.

Bullfrog fits with Jinteki and I like they are doing different types of things with them. Not for everyone but certainly unique in design.

Didn't you know 'psi' is short for psi-ch? burla

Just you wait. There's gonna be a James Roday reference on one of these cards sooner or later. complice

If such a card does come to fruition, and it does not feature a pineapple, either hidden or prominent, then I will be disappointed.

How fun would it be if Hourglass was a Bioroid with the standard bioroid rule (spend an action to break a subroutine)

It should have a troll face for the illustration then. :)

Where did they spoil Hourglass?

I don´t see the Picture in the News and can´t find it anywhere on the Website exept here?

It's kinda hidden in the text. Look for "Haas-Bioroid gains a piece of ice capable of wiping out a Runner's whole turn."

Honestly, it's not that strong. It doesn't end runs. Similarly, a Runner who knows this is coming up can use up his clicks before engaging it. I know its meant to compensate for the weakness of bioriod ice, but a Runner could just save up his creds for breaking the subroutines of bioroid ice on the same server while completely ignoring the subroutines on this one.

Nevertheless, I love the flavor, cost, strength and mind games it plays so much that I'm so going to try it. complice

Against HB most Runners will run on their first click because of being able to pay with Clicks on say Ichi or Viktor….this one can come as a nasty surprise against such a runner. Especially of course if followed by Ice like say Ichi or Viktor ;)

In theory, yes….but with a cost like that I don't know if that can be pulled of reliably. I'm certainly going to try though ;)

I really like both of these pieces of ICE.  They will likely go directly into decks for me.
