Android:Netrunner on OCTGN


Android:Netrunner LogoAndroid: Netrunner is an asymmetrical cyberpunk Card Game for two players made by Fantasy Flight Games.

Set in a dystopian, cyberpunk future where monolithic megacorps own and control the vast majority of human interests. While corporation players try to score points by advancing their agendas, they have to guard their intellectual properties from the elite and subversive hackers known as netrunners.

This is a game definition for the Online Card and Tabletop Gaming Network (OCTGN). Its card effects are almost completely automated to allow for smoother play and prevent mistakes

210k Data Set updated

Ooops! Just noticed an error in the way I anonymized the data set caused some rows to break, ending with game names in the wrong place etc. Fixed it now and you can find it on the same place.

Draft IDs have now been added

The Masque The ShadowThe two draft IDs have now been added to OCTGN and they can be found under the Promos set to be used for deckbuilding. You will have to create your drafted decks externally to OCTGN however but once you do, you can build them in OCTGN or in another online editor and simply swap out the relevant IDs.

  • Marker: Not automated.
  • Fall Guy: Not automated, just trash it instead
  • Singularity: Does not autotrash, so just ask the corp to trash all

Fear and Loathing in New Angeles League

A new league is starting in 3 days, organized by Malvolio. The previous one has ended with running_bear once again cresting in the top place.

The new league is based around Fear and Loathing but new sets are legal once they are rezzed in OCTGN. Register here:, and remember to use [BGG-L05] in your game titles.

While we’re on the subject, it’s with sadness that I have to report that Tomatello AKA Nikola Tomic, the person who eagerly organized the previous one, has passed away in the meantime. This came as a shock to many of us since he was a young and very active lad. Initially I was sceptical about the news which is why I didn’t post about it before, but it turns out it’s true. Such a shame…

Nikola was very excited about growing the online ANR scene and it’s a loss to see him go like this. So go play some league games in his memory.

Analyze your OCTGN games

Sample Analysis

A sample game, analysed. Click for larger img.

The people behind have released a very interesting little web application that takes your OCTGN Android:Netrunner chatlog and analyze it to provide a game overview. It’s kinda neat as it provides you with statistics of how many credits you made, how many ICE you rezzed etc.

Check it out here

To use it, simple go to your chatlog after the game ends, press Ctrl+A, Ctrl + C, to copy all text to the clipboard, then go to the site, paste it in the box and press the button to analyze it. If you’ve played more than one game in the same session, make sure the text you put in contains the logs only from a single game.

I don’t know how the magic happens behind the code but it’s some impressive feat of text parsing, especially since my code tends to be standarized but often provides customized text as well. Not to mention all the times players take back actions (including credits and clicks and so on) so it’d be interesting to know how they manage those situations.

PS: The analyzer is still in beta, so expect some bugs and improvements in the future.

playonlinux & playonmac

Someone went ahead and crafter scripts to quickly prepare OCTGN to play on GNU/Linux and Mac. If you’re on either of those platforms, it’s worth a try to see how well it works.


This is a wine bottler basically, so it handles everything you’d need to setup to play OCTGN on Linux/Mac with as little fuss as possible.

Fear and Loathing in OCTGN

Blackmail-Fear-and-Loathing-Netrunner-SpoilerThe next data pack for Android:Netrunner is now available for online play! As always all cards are automated, with some small exceptions

  • Quest Completed: Target the card you want to access before playing it.
  • Tallie Perrault: Not triggered automatically when Operations are trashed. Just double click her when appropriate
  • Blackguard: Rez not automated. Corp has to manually do it after exposing.
  • Blackmail: Does not check for BP.

Also, that damn Subliminal Messaging was a complete PITA to code. It forced me to write a whole new trigger hook just for itself >_<

Worth it!

Image packs not uploaded (not for TC either) since I have no time to craft censored versions. If anyone wants to step up and blur the card texts and send them to me, I’d appreciate it.
