Hungry for a new breed of board games, the creator of Magic: The Gathering, Richard Garfield, introduced Android: Netrunner to instant acclaim. Designed to be closer to poker than Pokemon, Android: Netrunner is a collectible card game (CCG) that pits a ruthless corporation against a lone hacker in a battle for information in a not-so-distant dystopian future.
If you’ve already played the original enough times to memorize every card, it might be time to add a few more players to the deck. Creation and Control, the first deluxe expansion for Android: Netrunner, introduces 165 new cards to the equation to shake up your strategies, install higher stakes, and generally bring enough variety to the table to ensure you don’t have to play the same game twice. Or, seven times, whatever the case may be (we don’t know you).
Although the expansion focuses on struggles between the executives at Haas-Bioroid and the Shapers that screw-up their systems, there’s enough neutral cards and secondary uses to appease fans of any faction. As this is only an expansion of a pre-existing game, we recommend you buy the original first. If you’re hankering for a new generation of card games that gets as involved as your favorite science fiction without mucking up function, you’ve just found the winner.
