Inspired by Gab’s recent introduction to Netrunner, we dug out our copy of Infiltration to give that another go. This is heist game set in the Android cyberpunk/bladerunner world. It has a similar plot to Netrunner, in that thieves are trying to break into a corporation and steal their data.
Gab always loved the Android board game, but it is a bit too intensive to play very often. We played it with my family in a four-player game and it took six hours. There are only 12 turns in the whole game and our brains hurt.
What Gab loves about it is the cyberpunk Android world. The clones and androids and seedy cops and nightclubs and jet-cars and conspiracies and corrupt corporations.
What Fantasy Flight Games did which was great was realise that even if the Android board game wasn’t a huge hit, they had some amazing IP in the world they created around the game. They published some Android novels and brought out a great heist game called Infiltration set in the same world. They also redesigned the old Netrunner card game with an Android theme.
