When I went to the Legend of the Five Rings World Championships this year, I went filled with elation and excitement, looking forward to the thrill of games without the usual trepidation of playing with my favourite Clan, the Phoenix, that I’ve had at other points in Ivory. Let’s face it, with every Sensei printed until the A Line in the Sand expansion giving us a weakened economy, a Stronghold whose Ability most players hardly use, and a generally lower power level of Personalities, it’s been hard for Phoenix players to feel the same passion and competitiveness that other Clans have enjoyed. But at Worlds, I felt all of this and more. Why?
After you’ve acquired your Netrunner products you might be wondering what’s the best way to start playing the game and grasping all of the main gameplay concepts. These are tips on how to learn the game and evolve your deck building and playing skills.
