Standard Expansions

Once you’re familiar with the game, these sets will allow you to explore new gameplay directions. We aim to release at least one expansion per year.

Midnight Sun Booster Pack

The Midnight Sun Booster Pack is a small interstitial release featuring seven cards, one from each faction, chosen from NISEI’s next major release, Midnight Sun. These seven cards were chosen to add variety into the Standard and Startup formats, as well as serve as a teaser of mechanical and creative themes to come in the full set. Each card in the Midnight Sun Booster Pack is printed in a deluxe full-art frame to show off the illustration.



In the wake of the attack on the Beanstalk, the world recoups and reorganizes. Things are looking up.

Uprising is a 65-card expansion and the second half of the Ashes Cycle. While expanding on the designs of Downfall, it also introduces new ideas like lockdowns—powerful Corp operations that dissuade the Runner for an entire turn.



The Beanstalk has been attacked. The world will never be the same.

Downfall is a 65-card expansion, the first half of the Ashes Cycle, and the first NISEI original set. It features all-new art and graphic design and contains card designs that are equal parts fresh and familiar.

Additional Sets and Expansions

These are smaller supplementary packs of cards, produced outside of our typical release pipeline.

Magnum Opus Reprint

Reprints of the limited-run Championship cards given out at the Magnum Opus event in 2018, featuring updated art and wording.

System Core 2019

NISEI’s first “starter set”. System Core 2019 was a virtual-only product; a list of cards that players could assemble from their existing collections to create a new “core set”.


Curious about what’s coming next? As NISEI projects proceed through our production pipeline, we’ll start by listing them on our Upcoming page. When enough information is public and release gets closer, we’ll give a product its own page, as you might see below.
