Nightlancer is a competitive cyberpunk game set in the unique dystopian future of 2099. Each player must guide their Nightlancer through a hazardous underworld career, intent on securing their future before society collapses around them.
Each player controls one of 10 unique Nightlancers. They take on challenging missions with multiple choice paths, choosing the option that best utilizes their abilities and options. If they are successful they get paid.
They can invest the money either to improve their pool of options with Black Market or Training cards, or they can invest the money in their Prospects to try to secure victory.
Players can use their hand of Contact cards to gain advantages or obstruct their opponents throughout each game round, or they can save them to help complete Agendas – giving them another path to Prospects.
The player with the most Prospects at the end of the game is the winner.
Nightlancer includes solitaire and cooperative optional rules.
