Android: Netrunner is an asymmetrical Living Card Game for two players. Set in the cyberpunk future of Android and Infiltration, the game pits a megacorporation and its massive resources against the subversive talents of lone runners.

Corporations seek to score agendas by advancing them. Doing so takes time and credits. To buy the time and earn the credits they need, they must secure their servers and data forts with "ice". These security programs come in different varieties, from simple barriers, to code gates and aggressive sentries. They serve as the corporation's virtual eyes, ears, and machine guns on the sprawling information superhighways of the network.

In turn, runners need to spend their time and credits acquiring a sufficient wealth of resources, purchasing the necessary hardware, and developing suitably powerful ice-breaker programs to hack past corporate security measures. Their jobs are always a little desperate, driven by tight timelines, and shrouded in mystery. When a runner jacks-in and starts a run at a corporate server, he risks having his best programs trashed or being caught by a trace program and left vulnerable to corporate countermeasures. It's not uncommon for an unprepared runner to fail to bypass a nasty sentry and suffer massive brain damage as a result. Even if a runner gets through a data fort's defenses, there's no telling what it holds. Sometimes, the runner finds something of value. Sometimes, the best he can do is work to trash whatever the corporation was developing.

The first player to seven points wins the game, but not likely before he suffers some brain damage or bad publicity.

5 Security Testing Tokens
You will find a printable PDF for Security Testing Tokens in this file. This is an 8.5" x 11" document intended to be printed on sticker paper. The tokens are sized to cover the Netrunner core set credit tokens. If you are anything like me and have multiple core sets, you can probably spare 2 or 3 credits to convert these stickers into cardboard tokens. The tokens are numbered 1,2,3 to accommodate for the possibility of 3 copies installed at once. Hope you enjoy. (I dont own the rights to the image of Security Testing, the tokens are constructed from a scan of the card. Since Im not selling these, I figured it was ok. If Im mistaken please let me know and I will remove this file).
