Android: Netrunner: The Eternal Wait

You know that unhealthy feeling when you start to get obsessed with a game? Spending all your waking hours:
  • writing army lists / deck lists
  • cycling repeatedly through every related web forum, waiting for new posts
  • studying spoilers to memorise stats
  • talking about it to people who don't care...
Well I got it bad for Android:Netrunner -  and I don't even have the game yet! I have been walking to my FLGS each day at lunch, and asking the same question - "Netrunner?". The answer is invariably no, but the exercise is good for me. Just recently the answer changed to something like "We expect the ship in Sydney any day now", then "The boxes are in customs", all the way to "In a trunk on the way to our warehouse and should be in tomorrow" (that was today). I wrote a haiku to capture my frustration:

Still no Netrunner
Its always due "tomorrow"
Cry virtual tears

I really can't wait to get my hands on this :) If you don't know what I'm talking about read my preview article. In the meantime I have been devouring all the related content on the web that I can. Here are some useful online links that will be of value if you want to learn more about this awesome game:
That's all for now, hopefully in a few hours I will be drooling over my freshly unpacked cards and  giving them a run against the boys at work.


  1. Fuck, my workmate totally improved upon the final line of my haiku:

    Still no Netrunner
    Its always due "tomorrow" -
    Corporation wins.

  2. Seven agendas
    Delay inevitable
    Tycho extension.
