There is also a board game called ''Mainframe'', in which six runners, also playable in Netrunner, are hacking into a Titan bank server to steal as many credits as possible. Players take turns drawing cards with shapes on them, and producing those shapes on the playing field with the goal of enclosing as much territory for themselves as possible. A new board game, called ''New Angeles'' was announced August 2016, in which players play exclusively as the Corps of the world of ''Android,'' trying to advance their agendas while coping with civil unrest.
