Also free on OCTGN I played it when it first came out and enjoyed it. I never kept up with it. I kind of want to run through it cycle by cycle on OCTGN some time. The prizes for the yearly kit this year look sweet. I am playing in it in November at our FLGS even though I don't have many cards. Dat playmat -
Jinteki is the only real game in town for online play. I'm kinda getting tired of Netrunner atm...For a LCG they are sure churning out expansions(of really questionable quality, playtesting wru). There are also balance issues with must include cards atm...*cough* Jackson Howard I am looking at you.
The great thing about the game is that there are really no "must include", but there are definitely cards much more useful/powerful than others. You can make all sorts of corner case builds and anything with a strong enough plan can win.
I might steer clear of LCGs (other than Star Realms/Hero Realms) until the Lot5R reprint comes out (FFG guys told me to expect it at GenCon next year).
I have it and really got in to it last winter. I never really got very good at it though because I have a young kid and wasn't getting a lot of playtime. I like the game a lot but it's hard to keep up with the serious people, I think about selling it once in a while. Hell i have like 8-10 unopened data packs
Oh? Did they update their model? Originally they were just going to do 2 "decks" every 3 months, which was like 22 cards total with the way their decks were structured. I kinda clocked out when that announcement was made, since the rate of new cards was going to be absolutely glacial.
