Does anyone think that this might be playable solo, or am I completely fooling myself?

It's a two player campaign, one playing the Runner, the other playing the Corporation.

You absolutely cannot play Netrunner in a proper way solo. There is a large amount of hidden information.

Have you played the Netrunner LGC? I find it strange you would ask if you did.

I haven't. I recently acquired a fairly good size collection of stuff and haven't had a chance to read over everything yet. I saw this and thought it sounded pretty cool. Was just hoping that I might be able to play it by myself, as no one else seems even mildly interested in it around here.

I really don't see any way at all this will work solo -- the Netrunner base game already doesn't. Find a second person! It's the perfect thing to play through with a friend -- maybe the gamers you know are more interested in a limited campaign with a small cardpool (just Core Set and Terminal Directive) than a sprawling LCG.

Netrunner with the base set is really playable like a board game if you built the decks for both players, and I think Terminal Directive will appeal to people who otherwise would not be interested in a competitive card game.

I just did a gamer search for 25 miles around Birmingham, AL. There were around 70 gamers here on boardgamegeek.

I would bet that at least one plays A:NR.

Worst case, you could drive the two hours and play with us in Tupelo, MS.

Jinteki.net is the place to play Netrunner if you don't have a local opponent.

You can view some of the Terminal Directive cards there by looking under Cards--> Set-->Draft Cycle-->Terminal Directive.

The TD cards will be in play there very soon. Doubt that the site will be useful regarding actual TD campaigns, but stand-alone games with the new cards will be conducted around the clock.

The TD specific decks have not yet appeared on netrunnerdb.com...

Sometimes you have to roll the hard six.

...for what it's worth--there is a solo variant for Android: Netrunner floating around out there in the A:NR BGG page files section:

https://www.boardgamegeek.com/filepage/87006/running-solo-an...

I've not tried it myself, but it's got a solid number of thumbs.

It's very likely that this solo ruleset won't work with Terminal Directive without some tweaking...but honestly, I don't know, having played neither.

Still--though it's maybe not the full A:NR experience to play solo, it is *possible*.
