    Netrunner Summer Kit 1

    23 Seconds.

    For 23 seconds, Titan Transnational's mainframe was taken offline. For less than half of a minute, zero financial transactions were logged. The digital trail went dark.

    That was all it took to send the world into upheaval.

    Some blame a fierce competition between several cybercriminals that wreaked havoc on Titan's security. Others speculate insider sabotage - Georgia Emelyov, a canny sysop formerly under Titan's employ, made a surprising career move to the Jinteki zaibatsu shortly before the incident. An imaginative few put the blame on the aged shoulders of Omar Keung, an influential New Angeles-based conspiracy theorist.

    No matter who was responsible, the end result is the same. Resources are scarce. Fortunes were lost. New Angeles is in a perpetual state of near-citywide riot. The corporations are drawing into themselves, becoming distrustful of outside influence. Rumours abound that some of yesterday's most notorious runners are being targeted for financial ruin — or worse.

    And so, we have summer kit tournaments. Bank Jobs for all! Hayley Kaplans for some. Power tokens for the best.

    All you will need to play are two decks and an understanding of the rules - there’s no better way to improve at the game than by participating in a tournament. It’s also a great chance to mingle with the Toronto Netrunner community - one of the best, most welcoming, and most forward-thinking group of gamers you’ll ever meet, bar none.

    To ensure that all players receive prize support, this tournament will be capped at 24 participants. We will likely do four rounds of Swiss play, with prizes awarded according to ranking. Prize support will be as per this document, with additional prize support provided dependant on attendance.

    This tournament will be run under Relaxed rules, as per the Android: Netrunner Tournament Regulations.

    Note that the July 2016 update to the Most Wanted List is fully in effect.

    We look forward to seeing you all!

    Game Designers Night

    Our monthly Game Designers Night is a chance for both designers and fans to try out board game prototypes that are still in the development phase.

    The feedback that designers receive from playtesting sessions are extraordinarily valuable to finishing their game. Testers get a chance to lend their insight and suggestions to a game that might be the next big thing.
    Open to everyone; coming just to test games is greatly encouraged.

    Designers who bring a prototype are exempt from paying a cover.
