But f**k me, this game is incredible. It’s all about control. The players just have an incredible amount of control. It’s not just about what cards you play and when, it’s about the psychology you bring to the table, and how you pace the game itself. And you can feel it too. You can feel when the Runner is in control, when everything is falling and the Corporation is just trying to get off its knees. And you can feel it when the Corporation has an iron grip. You can feel the Runner poking, probing, looking for an in. You can feel the Runner panic as he’s overwhelmed with traces and tags and starts being hunted. The whole thing is moving under your fingertips. And the theme is just perfect. The richness of the theme is reinforced with every card that gets played.
That's a great description of what a great card game is. Classic games like Poker are sweat and nerves. Sounds like Netrunner could be a classic.
