Not really a combo, just an idea. that you can hold Astroscript Pilot Program's agenda counter until just before the runner accesses a Ghost Branch, Aggressive Secretary, or Project Junebug. Just before run is declared successful, just as you rez said ambush, you instantly beef it up. if you had 2 or 3 APP scored, this could be crippling or outright lethal to the runner, even if you had no advancement on them beforehand.

Why would they access it if you did this, assuming it was some sort of trap?

Of course, you do this once and get them, and next time you have the cajones to do it to a 'Breaking News' or other Agenda...

There's a paid ability window between the Runner's final opportunity to jack out and the access phase, during which the runner accesses all the cards in the server whether they want to or not. You aren't tipping your hand until they've already lost the opportunity to do anything about it.

So there is.

Thank you.

One more thing to watch out for, a last minute advertising campaign for Project Junebug.

The timing diagrams seem to be of high importance and well worth studying in detail.

And, in at least one instance, in direct conflict with the rules.

This is the second reference to a problem that has been posted in the last few days, but I can't find a thread that discusses it. Can you point it out?

I was hoping someone at GenCon would broach it. I know the identified playtesters said it was being broached, but we haven't heard either way yet.

I really hope that the diagram is wrong and you can trigger abilities even if the ice is rezzed. It should be an easy ruling.
