If you were around for the Madness last year, you can remember how infuriating it was when others would say that Netrunner was just a passing fad, that we were all a bunch of little children, and that the we ruined the Madness with our "cult of the new" game.

I propose that we come back and show them how wrong they were.

GO HERE TO GET INFO ON GEEK MADNESS

Round 1: Netrunner Vs. Love Letter

Round 2: Netrunner Vs. A Game of Thrones: The Board Game

Round 3: Netrunner Vs. Race for the Galaxy

Round 4: Netrunner Vs. Puerto Rico

Round 5: Netrunner Vs. 7 Wonders

Round 6: Netrunner Vs. Agricola

Remember, be polite! We want to show them that Netrunner is still awesome and a winner, not justify their negativity towards us. I'll keep this thread updated with the rounds as they go through.

Seeing the support it got in the 2013 GeekMadness made me get into the game.

I had a similar experience. I had never actually heard of Netrunner before I spotted it winning its way through the later rounds of the 2013 tournament. I bought my first core set fairly soon after the tournament was over.

What are your feelings about the game a year later?

I am under the impression that this game has done nothing but grow in the past year or so. Netrunner also has an entire subreddit dedicated to it (Settlers of Catan is the only other game with a dedicated subreddit I know about, other than Magic: the Gathering of course, which is too hated on this site to win Geek Madness), which gives it more "rally" potential than pretty much any other game. Obviously it's madness and anything can happen, but I'd have to expect Netrunner to be the favorite heading into this tournament.

Also, there's a good chance that the final rounds will take place around the time Honor and Profit releases, so that could also help things. Basically, if Netrunner fans care about winning this, there's no reason the game can't win a repeat championship.

Still like it just don't get to play it enough. AS part of a game group, it is harder to bring 2-player games to the table. And my wife is lukewarm on it so she'd rather play different 2-player games at home.

I had just gotten this when the last Geek Madness happened (had been playing it about a month). My votes were definitely more on the "this is the new hotness" game, but looking back over the last year, this game is far and away my absolute favorite. It has grown very well, the people supporting it are great and it really deserves it's play among gaming's best.

I think A:NR will stage a brilliant 2nd half come-back. We just wanted to give them a little hope before we crushed them.

The problem is A:NR didn't finish the Corp before he had his ICE up. Now you need to wait until your rig is fully functional and get him in the end game.

I wouldn't worry ... yet. I suspect another 1,000 votes to be cast before this is over. A 40 point vote difference is nothing and could be erased in no time. The problem is the timing as weekends are slower traffic times on BGG. So I would expect a bump come Monday once everyone is "working."

Netrunner players are the sleep in late type, once they wake up things will change.
