An intricate game like Netrunner requires a robust and ever-evolving set of rules to support it. As new sets are released, the NISEI Rules team carefully updates the Comprehensive Rules to support the new expansions, and issues card text updates so that previously printed cards are in line with the latest rules.
On this page, you’ll find the NISEI Comprehensive Rules and card text updates. If you’re new to the game, don’t start here—check out the Learn to Play guide instead.
