The Runner and Corporation draft packs are 40 cards assembled in four 10-card booster packs. We know there's an algorithm to how they are assembled, but we don't know exactly what it is. So after going through a draft and playing for a while, is there a way to reassemble the booster packs to do everything over again? It doesn't sound like there is anything marking the cards as to which of the four booster packs they belong to within a specific draft pack. I have never done any drafting. Is there any value in taking pictures of the 4 boosters before starting a draft (or as you are doing the draft)?

Next time, put the cards out face up and take a pic with your smartphone so you can reassemble the 4 "packs" after you play...

Youll get almost the same experience simply shuffling them all together and making new random packs of 10.

True, it wont have guaranteed cards in slots like an agenda in the first slot, but it should be close enough.

I was going to say write it down, but that's a much simpler suggestion.

I would think it would be doable to for a "draft league" by having people keep their 40 drafted cards, and bring these back to the next draft, shuffle, and redraft from, basically, the same card pool.

I have enjoyed "Duplicate play" in other games (such as Bridge), though this works best if the packs are balanced (which sometimes doesn't happen due to luck of the draw).
