To follow up to tournament play - here are things that are ideal. I don't always do all these things, but I certainly should.

Keep the game state very clear. Place credits arranged clearly, ideally swapping five small tokens to a large 5 token whenever you can. If you're using non-standard credits, make sure they are clear for the opponent to read. I played against someone recently who had small burgandy things for 1 credit, slightly larger but otherwise identical burgandy things for 2 credits, and larger still but almost identical burgandy things for 5 credits. Then he stacked them on his ID. In a casual game I'm probably just going to sigh and give up knowing what your credit pool is; in a tournament I'd probably tell you to use something different.

If you're using dice, think carefully. At Brighton someone moved their four dice determining the credit total, and dropped them. We could reconstruct the gamestate (I think?), but you're just asking for trouble if you do this. If you're using a 20 sided dice for anything, consider what happens if the table is knocked.

Ideally track clicks. If you don't track clicks, announce 'click 1...click 2..' for each of your moves. Reduce short-cuts to a minimum - e.g. pay 2 for Dirty Laundry, remove them from your credit pool. Resolve the run. Then take the 5 from Dirty Laundry.

When paid ability windows are present (which may be any time, given Street Peddler and face down cards) pass priority back and forth correctly. "Mandatory draw...any response? Click one, install. Any response? Click two, advance. Any response?". Yes, this is a pain but it's time we all got used to it.

Mostly, slow down and do everything right if you've got a big fancy rig with huge amounts of start of turn triggers. (Noise players: that means you.)

Try to have fun. Everyone is very friendly and helpful, and winning this children's game is not so important as enjoying it. Even if you do all of the above wrong, nothing 'really bad' will happen. The worst that can possibly happen is someone will say 'Can you do X differently? I can't follow'.

Hey! Any folks coming tonight? I think I should be able to make it. I'm guessing Old Hollywood isn't out yet?

Old Holywood is out!

I'll be bringing the random IDs that Jonny has assigned me for the next Reading tournament: Nasir and GRNDL. What fun!

I am doing the same but will be slightly later than usual because I left said decks at home, which is not the best start to a Netrunner evening I have ever heard of.

Thanks for the games guys. Considering my complete lack of anything that resembled good play skills, yes I managed to repeated run R&D and then play a Medium and Run again....I scraped together a 50:50 win loss rate. Hopefully it won't be six months before my next games with you guys.

P.S. Next up is more Jank

Cybernetics and possibly the return of the professor........

I'm not certain but I feel like Stu and I should have spotted it if it was there - I had crap all over that table by the end so upon leaving I had to have a bird's eye view. Not certain though.

Tourney was a lot of fun, sorry you had to leave early Ben! Enjoyable games, was fun trying to beat stu butchershop with leela, pressure was good but still got scorched.. Maybe more pressure next time? ;) noisemill pwned me too as lamprey somehow kept me poor (and that card just sounds like an innocent pokemon...)

Was good to play rich for the first time too, close games and both ended up with some lucky rnd mills xD I look forward to the next one!

Good fun last night!

The highlight for me was staring down Ben's NEH, that had two Corporate Towns rezzed and trashing my resources! I don't think I was going to be installing resources that game ever again...

Good fun as well,

Sorry I had to bail out the last round, it was clear I couldn't finish it before my last "useful" train so rather than start and not finish the round I thought it would be better to leave between rounds...

No worries!

Next time we're aiming for a Sunday morning. Hopefully we'll get a bigger turnout as a bonus of being able to run another round or two.

I'm away this weekend and likely not present Monday either (but I might be!).

Tomorrow isn't out yet. Good luck at Quinn's!
