Estelle tracked productivity from her PAD. It was one of her favourite things to do.
Percentages tracked across the screen in real time, changing and adapting as her work crews assembled and disassembled and packed and shipped.
Multi-tasking, Estelle swapped to her investments portfolio. The latest model of bioroid nannies were selling ahead of expectation. She readjusted her projections. Additionally, a shell investment into Jinteki’s mining operations on Luna was also doing well. She quietly transferred some credits through several international banks before using those to subsidize her repairs and enhancements pot.
It was looking like it would be a good day.
Combo training wheels
If you’re not against Desperado/Whizzard/Slums (as one of my most awesome local players took to Regionals), then this deck will tick along like a well-oiled machine. I think.
Originally, I’d had Adonis in the Advanced Assembly Lines slot. The money was good, but I thought with ETF, Estelle, Turtlebacks, and Marilyn’s, we’d be able to get to the magic number—which is 14. The amount at which you can score a Global Food from hand. 12 if you use Advanced Assembly Lines as well. Also Advanced Assembly Lines helps us get those Work Crews out quickly and surprisingly. Great with an Estelle draw.
But here’s the goal: Have a Bioroid Work Crew installed (or have it in hand with an Assembly Lines on the board). You must also have two Biotic Labors in hand. Plus the GFI in hand as well.
Play both Biotics for 8. You now have 5 clicks.
Rez the Bioroid Work Crew for 2 (total 10). Trash them to install GFI (gaining 1, total 9).
Advance GFI 5 times (total 14).
Next, you’ll find your third Biotic or use Clone Suffrage or Jackson to recur the other two. Use Bioroid Work Crew and Biotic to score a 4/2. Or, if the runner isn’t checking your remotes, just install a 4/2 naked and then Biotic it.
Last, we’ll want to close the game with an ABT. Most likely.
You can just Biotic it out. Or you can use Subliminal Messaging and Bioroid Work Crew to score it. Or you can never-advance it—though that’ll be less likely against experienced runners if you’re on five points.
Obviously you can do these three scores in whatever order your deck gives them to you. I mean, it’d be really, really cool to score a Concept Hopper early and get the extra credit or card draw drip.
Also, NAPD is in here because I had so much free influence. This could easily be Corporate Sales Team, but I figured I’d put some more tax on the runner. I think the cash will be good enough.
