The 2018 Android: Netrunner Regional Championships are nearly here, and they promise to offer some of the greatest cyberduels the game has ever seen!

As the Kitara Cycle races toward its climactic conclusion, and we draw nearer to the release of Reign and Reverie, the 2018 Regional Championships will reward those runners and sysops who can best adapt to the ever-changing battlefield. The principles of economy, bluffing, and calculated risk remain, but your virtual struggles find new context—impacted by the release of new ice, icebreakers, and key events in the meat world.

Accordingly, while the 2018 Android: Netrunner Regional Championships offer you a chance to enjoy large, energetic events, full of your region's best and most enthusiastic players, they also serve as a critical test. Is your deck ready? Have you learned how to pilot it? How do you adjust your strategy when you fall behind? How do you bait your traps, and when do you spring them? The answers lie before you—our list of 2018 Android: Netrunner Regional Championships is now available. Visit the list to find the event or events nearest to you!
