My son is an avid magic player. I picked up android net runner in a trade thinking this would be a game we could play together. I got about 800 cards in the trade. Recently was able to organize such that I have a weyland and shaper core decks. After that, I am completely overwhelmed. The rules suck and The jargon is opaque. Anybody out there willing to work through a learning game with me.

Thanks,

Barry

Probably you are doing this, but I would separate the core set card and start learning the game from that point. Then choose one faction for each side and start putting more meat from the other 500+ cards that you have. If not, reading all the card + their interactions could be more than overwhelming.

If you are interested, I live in BFE and the closest FLGS is over an hour away so I have started playing games with friends over skype. I would have no problem running through a few beginner games with you to give you an idea of how to play. If you're interested, shoot me a geekmail and I'll get back to you!

For OP and any other newbies in this thread: "tutor" is imported Magic: The Gathering jargon for a card that lets you find another card. It dates back to an old card called "Demonic Tutor".

Not to sound nipticky, but there are no where near 800 cards, there aren't even 500. Unless you count each playset as 3 cards rather than 1, in which case there are almost 1500.

He probably is talking about physical cards received rather than individual unique cards printed. Especially coming from MtG which doesn't have a fixed distribution.

Welcome to the game. Spend some time with the rules. Use the rules forum here if anything is unclear. You'll usually get a reply within minutes of posting.

Before you know it, your son will forget about Magic

Please, do not ask (rules) questions in the forum before thoroughly searching first. I am pretty sure that any questions you may have have been asked and answered numerous times...in the last week.

I am all for people helping each other in regards to NR-rules but the same questions are asked over and over again, rendering the forums hard to navigate and increases the overall noise.

Even any odd situations you might encounter are more than likely to have been discussed since some people come up with the most fringe cases resulting in absurd rules as soon as a new card that allows that situation is spoiled (and this I mean in a good way, the community will find and destroy/leverage/expose the tiniest "flaw" in wording or other faster than an "oiled flash" - crowd sourcing ftw).

With that said, I do not think the rulebook is bad and there are on top of that exhaustive resources available for new players to learn, and as can be seen in this thread, a communtiy that will help new players to learn how to play this great game

Hi Barry,

What game stores are near you? I always teach new players with a few hands-on examples. The learning curve to this game is 2 hours - after that it's just card knowledge and a little math that separates you from a pro.

I may be off by a few hundred, but I have at least two starter sets and a few (maybe 4 expansions).
