I thought it might be fun to have a weekly Netrunner Math Puzzle thread! I’ve wrote a few of these and if people are interested I can put a couple up each week or so for us to discuss. People can also post their own problems here, either for curiosity or practical reasons.
Problem #1: The runner has 5 cards including 2 I’ve Had Worse in hand. None of their other cards are relevant and they have no more I’ve had Worse in their deck. They run a Snare! and the Corp rezzes 3 Dedicated Response Teams. What is the probability that the runner is killed?
Problem #2: Your 40-card Chaos Theory deck has 3 Magnum Opus, 3 Self-Modifying Code, and 3 Test Run. You mulligan any hand that has none of these cards and keep any hand that has at least one. What is the probability you will start the game with one of these cards in your hand? (BONUS: If you end up with none of these, but have a Diesel, what is the probability that the Diesel will draw you at least one of them?)
