Learn to Play

Welcome to Netrunner.

In this asymmetric card game, play as Runners, diverse hackers seeking to bring down or profit from the systems of the Lunar city of Heinlein, or as Corps, advancing their agendas to wring even more blood and profit from the lunar dust. You and another player will each take on one of these roles and face off against each other.

Our Learn to Play guide is designed for use with the System Gateway starter decks. If you have System Gateway and a friend to play the game with, choose who will be Corp and who will be Runner, and follow the links below for your guides to the game. For a brief introduction to the basic concepts before diving into the written guides, watch our How to Play video here!
