February 16, 2016 at Victory Point Cafe in Berkeley.
The latest beginner-friendly tournament at Victory Point will be on Tuesday, February 16th at 6PM! The format will be:
3 rounds (so all attendees can expect to play six games: 3 as runner, 3 as corp)
Legal decks are: built from a SINGLE core set and ONE deluxe expansion of your choice! (NOTE: the deluxe expansions are Creation and Control, Honor and Profit, Order and Chaos, and Data and Destiny)
$5 entry fee – which goes towards prize pool and venue support (thank you Victory Point!)
I’ll be bringing two extra sets, so enough for two folks who don’t yet have the game. If you’d like to borrow a deck, please let me know beforehand, as I want to make sure everyone gets what they need.
There will be a prize pool (open to anyone) from a standard Game Night Kit (I’ll be posting pictures) as well as some side prizes (still figuring these out, I’ll add more details as we get closer).
Last time we had a great turn out and gave out lots of goodies, so we’ll be looking forward to another night of fun (and prizes)! We won’t be doing a teach-the-game event like last time. However, January 4th and 11th I will be at Games of Berkeley from 5-9PM willing to teach any and all newbies (and generally deck test for the tournament if anyone wants to bring some core+deluxe format decks as well).
What the heck is Netrunner?
An extremely enjoyable game. Check out: http://www.shutupandsitdown.com/videos/v/susd-play-netrunner/
I’ve never played Netrunner before, can I attend?
Yes, but you should learn a little bit about the game before jumping in. I’ll be at Games of Berkeley on January 4th and January 11th from 5PM to 9PM teaching anyone and everyone how to play Netrunner. Come learn the game (teaching it only takes about an hour) and you’ll be ready to go!
I don’t own the cards, can I attend?
Yes! However, there are a limited number of decks I can lend out and it’s first-come first-served so let me know if you’d like to come play and need to borrow some decks!
I’d like to buy the core set and/or a deluxe expansion, where can I do that?
If you’re in Berkeley you can pick up Netrunner and the deluxe expansions at Games of Berkeley or Eudamonia. In Oakland you can get whatever you need at Endgame, and if you’re in SF I’ve been told that Gamescape is where it’s at.
I’d like to make a deck. Where do I start?
netrunnerdb.com has deck lists for all formats, use the search function to limit your criteria to a core set and your selected deluxe expansion! Also, Monday night at Games of Berkeley I (and a bunch of more talented players/deckbuilders) will be around to help test decks and talk about how to build them!
