Netrunner, Game of Thrones and other LCGs move to rotation policy


Fantasy Flight Games have announced that their lineup of competitive Living Card Games, specifically Netrunner, A Game of Thrones, Call of Cthulhu, Star Wars and Warhammer 40,000: Conquest will move to a rotation policy, retiring older cards as newer ones are announced.

The move to a new policy comes about as a result of FFG identifying problems with the “unrestricted growth” of the LCG format.

“As much as these game have continued to grow and be successful, we see that their growth will eventually make it increasingly difficult for new players to find their way into the collection and for retailers to support their local play groups,” explains FFG in their news post here.

Their rotation policy will keep only five cycles active in Standard Format games at any one time, retiring the first two cycles from play as the eighth is launched.

Take a look at FFG’s website for more information and for specific links to explain how individual games will be affected.
