This deck is under construction. Anyone is welcome to contribute - check the talk page to find out more.

To differentiate it from various other hacking-based decks on this site, this deck draws much of its flavor from the 1995 movie Hackers. This is, however, just a jumping-off point to designing many other hacks that were not shown in the movie.

Contents

Card Types

Hacker - Each player chooses one at the start of the game.

Hack - Acts of computer chicanery. Each hack has at least one keyword, representing the possible motivation behind the hack:

  • Money
  • Prestige
  • Dominance
  • Boredom
  • Revenge

Each Hack also has a score.

Action - Takes place in the real world rather than cyberspace.

Turns

1. Draw until hand has 7 cards.

2. Play up to two hacks and one action.

Winning

To win, your total Hacks must be over 50 points.
