  2. To be honest, I have never seen inflated prices for a data pack, adventure pack, etc. for Netrunner, LoTR or Game of Thrones. In fact, they usually stay at $15 or less several months or years later. Currently, EBAY has a listing for A Study in Static asking $60!!! Amazon is asking $30. Very strange. How can it be demand and supply? Did FFG ship out less of this data pack than all similar packs for its various games?
  3. Carist said: This has been happening with the Data Packs for a while. A data pack comes close to selling out everywhere, so the few stores that do have any remaining jack up the price. The reprint of A Study in Static is set to arrive in June, so you can either pay the inflated price, or just wait until next month when all the stores have them again and the price goes back to normal. Thanks.
  4. My LGS went out of business a few weeks back and I have missed out on the fourth data pack. Why is this particular data pack so expensive versus its normal $15 price?
  5. I believe the third Netrunner tournament at Labyrinth will be on Januray 6th. I visited the store on Thursday. Here is the contact info: http://www.labyrinthgameshop.com/Home_Page.html
  6. Steel Rabbit said: Oh! Another question, though: Can you use an icebreaker to break subroutines on multiple pieces of ice in a run? Like, if there're three pieces of ice protecting a server that all happen to be able to be affected by the same icebreaker can I use that icebreaker all the way through (provided I have the resources to do so)? Yes.
  7. If an encountered Ice does not have a subroutine that "Ends the Run," the Runner can pass through it and suffer the damage of each subroutine. If there is a subroutine that "Ends the Run, the Runner deals with the printed subroutines in order and then once he hits "Ends the Run" that stops the run at that central or remote server. However, if the Runner has Icebreakers in play: First, if he chooses to use his tools, he must have the correct type of Icebreaker for the encountered Ice (e.g. Sentry or Codebreaker or Barrier). Second, the Runner must match or exceed the "strength" of the Ice with the "strength" of the correct type of Icebreaker [Note: most Icebreakers have text that allows the spending of credits to increase its strength to match the strength of the encountered Ice. However, a few Icebreakers do not -- in those situations, you will have to use other cards to work with those Icebreakers to lower the strength of the encountered Ice]. Third, most Icebreakers have text that allows the spending of credits to break subroutines (one at a time). In that way, you can spend credits to break the "End the Run" subroutine and move on to the next installed Ice. However, if you have spent all of your credits on the previous encountered Ice(s), rather than move on and encounter it, you may "jack out" and voluntarily end your run. Hope that helps.

And that way every round is a complete experience with people getting to use both of their decks against each opponent. A much more fulfilling experience and more true to the nature of the game. Looks like you are correct. Here is a Washington, DC tournament report (Labyrinth Games) held on November 4th: http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/879798/washington-d-c-tourney-report
  9. Found a tournament report on the Washington, DC event on the Board Games Geek site: http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/879798/washington-d-c-tourney-report Sounds like everyone had a great time!! 10 players showed up.
  10. Is this practical? Most players have three or four hours to play. Although, we haven't sanctioned a tournament yet, we want people to play and not feel burdened. With four-to-six players, we have discussed that the first pair roll a die to decide who plays Runner, who plays Corporation. Then the players move on to Round #2 with a different player. Same selection process. Finally, the players move on to Round #3 and another pairing. That way the tournament lasts three or so hours. This seems much more practical and would ensure that players keep participating.

Kathleen, Thank you for supporting the game. I live in Wilmington, DE (3 hrs. away). I can't make this weekend's event, but will try to attend the others.
  12. I have been trying to build a base of players in Wilmington, Delaware (specifically Between Books, Claymont, Delaware). Five of us play casually on Wednesday nights and Saturdays. Two of us have the core set(s). The store will be restocked soon. In the meantime, the two of us build decks and everyone just plays.

  14. malkavianprank said: i would come from germany to participate ^^ but no register slots open the whole time *sad* Please come to Gen Con. Probably the same cost, but you have until August 2013 to save. I assure you that FFG has a great set-up/ And, you get everything else.
  15. Toqtamish said: That link I gave was to explain the event center itself and where it is located as you were asking about stuff located near it. The World championship page is different and is under the Events page. www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_minisite.asp Thank you. You are very helpful on every board that I have visited. If you don't work for FFG, they should hire you. You read the boards and answer questions extremely quickly. it is very helpful. The FFG message board is a bit difficult to find answers. I can't figure out why. But, please keep up the excellent work.
