This tournament is supposed to be fun and encourages newer players to participate while playing with the more regular players. That means you might play against more experienced players but based on the tournament structure you will also play against players of the same power level. To accommodate this we are using 1 side tournaments, meaning you will bring 2 decks (Corp & Runner) but only play one against each opponent. The tournament software will decide which side you are playing in a match, and ensure that this is balanced through the tournament.
So, we are playing something comparable to regular 5 rounds of swiss which is 8 rounds of swiss in this short format, each round with a maximum time of 40 min.
Hack the Egg:
Each player will build his standard Decks. At the venue you will get 2 additional cards, the eggs (it’s a proxy so please bring sleeved cards, additional sleeves and regular cards that can be used as the back of the proxy). These are Agendas with 3 advancement, 0 point that each player will include into his corp deck. This might be your 50 & 51th card, which is ok, for the eggs the deck building rules don’t apply, you add them later.
If the runners steals an egg, he takes it and includes it into his corp deck so the deck might get more and more eggs. To secure his eggs, the corp can simple score the agenda. The best egg hunter will get a special price at the end (see below)!
Yes both sides can forfeit eggs and they still belong into their decks (e.g. Archer).

Please bring decks that are fun to play against. Please avoid Siphon Spam, Asset Spam, Prison and other decks that you might have in mind. Focus on decks that might be strong but or not creating frustrations on the other side as the other side can’t play their game any more. Please respect the MWL, it applies to you, not to Beginners!
