In spite of that disgusting siphon, you won, right?
I like hearing stories of failed siphons.
Anyway, I have the grandest tale of tales to spread to my net children today.
This is the story of Aryabhata Tech, Broadcast Square, Reality Threedee and Muckraker.
Runner runs R&D and I have all three Techs, and 3 RT out, so he runs into Muckraker. Bad publicity trace triggers, he loses 3 I gain 3, then I trigger the Reality Threedee. Then I do it again, and again. then he hits 3 traces from the ice, that he can’t break. So that’s a 21 credit swing (the runner had only 7 to begin with.) I then gained 6 credits at the beginning of my turn, then Diversified my Portfolios for 17 credits.
I definitely won this game shortly after. with 40 credits. I had like, 4 for most of the game. The runner probably could have avoided losing the first BP trace, but it was simply impossible to shake that many traces, and I have an Expose for those situations where I can’t avoid it. I think he conceded in his heart.
