Rules

Players may register at any time during the League.  All League games must be played at the store.
Players are responsible for bringing their own cards, tokens, mats, etc. Cards are not required to
be sleeved, unless you intend on using promo cards, in which case, opaque sleeves must be used.

You will have a weekly checklist to track your progress.  At some point during the week, have a
staff member emboss your sheet.  Turn  sheets in at the counter after a week is completed. The League Organizer (LO) will add up each week’s tally and post the current standings to the store
website. The LO may play, but is ineligible to win prizes.

Games vs. Matches

A game is a single round, in which one player plays the Corporation and the other the Runner. A “game win” is awarded to the first player of a game to score 7 (or more) Agenda Points.

A match is a set of two games played with the same players, in which both players change sides for the second game. For a match, you will use your corporation deck for one game, and your runner deck for the next.  A player is awarded 10 match points for a win, and a number of match points equal to how many agenda points they scored if they lose. A match win is awarded to the player with the highest overall match points.  In case of a tie, both players are awarded the win.
