Card Game Corner

The VOG crew looks at card games in this special feature. This regular feature will range from game overviews, reviews, strategies, and major events!

For those who don’t remember or were not part of the card game scene at the time, Netrunner was originally a collectable card game (CCG) that was developed by Richard Garfield (the creator of Magic: The Gathering). The game was eventually published by Wizards of the Coast during the mid-90’s. It was based on a role-playing game called Cyberpunk 2020, which was the second edition of the original “Cyberpunk” or Cyberpunk 2013 (wait does that mean we are living in a cyberpunk age right now?). It was a game that involved each player to take on the role of either as a runner (hacker) or a mega-corporation in an epic battle for supremacy. Although Netrunner was a moderate success, it didn’t achieve the same amount of players as Richard’s more popular creation did. I can you tell you personally that one of the reasons was because of its over-complicated rule system.
