When I first started playing on Jinteki, I really had only played Netrunner with my daughter, and we’d not found many of the weird little quirks of the rules. As I played a few times, I noticed the game prompting me to rez my Adonis campaign before my turn started. It blew my mind that I’d never thought of rezzing it at the end of the runner’s turn so I could get my money back out right away.
Fast forward a while and here I am listening to Breaking News episode 55, and one of the hosts “reminds” us that there’s a rez window at the beginning of your turn before the “your turn begins” triggers fire. MIND BLOWN AGAIN.
I am tempted to whinge over the weird semantic space that is created by allowing players to change the board state at the beginning of their turn and then trigger things that happen ‘at the beginning of your turn’. But instead I want to ask:
What nuances of the Netrunner rules blew your mind when you learned about them?
