Or will it just have little box expansions like a boardgame?

That's all, sorry if this was mentioned somewhere else.

That's the chief difference between a CCG and a LCG.

You'll get a 60 card pack (3 copies each of 20 cards) every 4-6 weeks. No rare chasing, no randomness.

You're welcome.

Android:Netrunner is playable out of the box, for 2 players. The box contains 7 preconstructed decks.

For the expansions, Andy has answered.

Take a look at the other LCG's, either here or on FFG's website, to get an idea of what the distribution will look like for this one.

i.e. Invasion, Call of Cthulhu, A Game of Thrones

See this text? It's a gratuitous waste of GeekGold.

The game itself isn't important. Spending time intellectually jousting with likeminded folks is the real reason to game.

We're actually talking about building a draft cube for this.

360 runner cards, 360 corp cards in what amounts to two cubes.

You draft each cube with 15 card packs, just like two back-to-back Magic drafts. You literally play every card you draft. (We may move to four packs drafted so you can cut 15 cards, but for now there's not really enough cards to do that.)

You must play a faction leader from the faction from which you have the most faction points. Leaders aren't drafted but you can add your choice of leaders after the draft (assuming, of course, that there will soon be multiple faction leaders for each faction).

Once everyone has their decks, you play an eight man tournament.

A solid plan, but you might need to set aside the agenda cards into a separate cube/pile and draft or randompick those to ensure you have the proper amount in each corp deck.
