Android: Netrunner is a fantastic card game set in a dystopian future, pitting two player against each other in a cyber duel. Published by Fanatasy Flight Games, the game is sadly no longer in print, but player devotion to the game is still high. So high, in fact, that Edmonton will play host to the 2019 Canadian Netrunner Nationals this weekend. And Renaissance Gamer is helping sponsor the event!
The whole thing is being organized by my buddy Josh, and will take place at The Tabletop Cafe all day Saturday, with a Core Experience tournament on the Sunday. You can pre-register for the Nationals at the link above, which will save you a few bucks, or register at the venue. There is no registration fee for the Core Experience tournament on Sunday, though Tabletop Cafe’s usual play fee of $7 for all day still applies.
I haven’t had a chance to play Netrunner as much as I would like, but the times I have I had a blast. For Josh to get to organize the National Tournament is huge, and they have done a great job pulling this together. Both days are going to be super fun, so I encourage you to stop by at some point and check out the tournament, and maybe come by on the Sunday to try it out for yourself. The more we can support these fantastic local events, the more of them we are likely to get, so come cheer folks on!
