Hi guys. SO I'm sneaking in this post at work....sneaky sneaky! Don't have a lotta time, but I wanted to get a feel for why people got interested in netrunner, and what really hooked them about it.
I think the key to hooking a beginner is recognising what that person likes, and really emphasising that part of the game, at least at first. If someone loves the theme, then pointing out all the rich thematic elements of the cards and art really hooks them. If someone is a rules junky, then pointing out all the little intricacies can get them really excited.
Reading the beginner is key to making them a player for life. So what got you into Netrunner and what keeps you coming back for more??
Ok. Here's the next mulligan scenario. I think if you play Andromeda as a new player, you are excited, yet also a bit lost when you face 9 cards in your opening hand. Given the fact that with a 45 card deck, you start with 20% of your deck in your hand at the start, its pretty good chance that you have a good starting hand. But, you there are still good and bad opening hands for andromeda too. Also, I think who you are playing will influence your choice of hand.
The choice on your first turn is always do i run? or do I get rid of cards and not have to discard…and that choice depends on what corp does and what your hand is…so….
You are playing Andromeda, a fixed breakers data sucker type deck
You are playing against Jinteki: Personal Evolution
They did NOT mulligan. Here's your opening hand:
inside job x2
forged activation orders
Mulligan or not? and why?
What if you were playing Weyland: Building a Better World that did not mulligan? would your decision change?
