All I want for Christ-masssssssss... is Netrunner (extremely aggressive Christmas music starts)

At the time of writing, the Christmas stuff is out in Tesco so I'm allowed to be Christmassy.

Venue: WT0.02 (Westwood Teaching Centre) on Warwick University Westwood Campus. (For those of you at the last Warwick CO, this is very near the building we were in during that.)
Registration from: 11:00.
Tournament begins: 11:30, with a lunch break after round 1.
Entry fee: £6, with all fees going towards paying for the CO kit and any surplus going towards additional participation prizes.
Format: Double-Sided Swiss in Standard (with latest banlist).

This is Warwick’s second Circuit Opener, which being in December is going to have a Christmassy theme! Bring your best Christmas outfits (other Corp identities are also available) and general Christmas cheer to a casual Circuit Opener.

Please sign up if you are coming so I have an idea of numbers!

Tournament Structure

This is a standard format event likely consisting of 4, 65 minute rounds of double-sided swiss. (If we get more players than expected, there may be a cut; if we get fewer, there may only be three rounds. This will be confirmed at the start of the day.)

The full planned schedule is as follows, which contains buffer time:
11:25-11:30: The world premier of A Festive Netrunner Story That WIll Also Explain How The Tournament Works, I Hope
11:30-12:45: Round 1 (including pairing and inevitable overrun)
12:45-13:30: Lunch break
13:30-14:45: Round 2
14:45-16:00: Round 3
16:00-17:15: Round 4
17:15 onwards: Prizes, cut if necessary.


The event is held on the Warwick University campus, in the Westwood Teaching Centre on Westwood campus. There are a few ways to get here:

  • There is parking on Westwood Campus (although paying for it seems to be a whole thing) right next to the venue. The car park is on Avon Road.
  • The venue is a 24min walk (according to Google Maps) from Canley station. This station is on the Birmingham to London line West Midlands (operated by West Midlands Rail).
  • You can get the 11 bus to Westwood Campus or the U1 bus to University Interchange and walk a bit. The 11 goes to Coventry station, so if you're travelling through Coventry station you may want to get off there and take the bus.

The venue is card access only, but Warwick regulars will be about to make sure that everyone can get into the building. If you have issues with card access, or are running late, message @harmonbee on Discord or Slack.


Prizes consist of the Circuit Opener H2 2023 kit distributed as is required for a CO: top 8 get a playset of Magnet, top 4 get a playset of Moshing and top 2 get a Banner playmat.

There will also be participation prizes for all that attend, while my stash of prizes lasts! This consists of Kalypso's stained glass identities, the 2023 Q1 Game Night Kit, and a handful of alt arts donated by vinegarymink.

Finally, I will be offering a special prize to the two most festive individuals. These prizes consist of two older playmats customised to be extremely festive (Hakarł and The Artist will both be wearing a santa hat at a minimum), although I may also pick up some extra last-minute festive prizes because it seems like people are really interested in this.

Festiveness will be judged by me and whoever else I can rope into judging, and will be judged at the end of the tournament. There are lots of ways you can be festive - here are some ideas!

  • You could wear a particularly festive outfit! Please avoid fire hazards.
  • You could put some particularly festive alt-arts in your deck! Please make sure that they are still legible as the card they are representing - you're welcome to check with me whether they're fit for play.
  • You could somehow make your deck festively themed? Honestly if you pull this off then mad props to you, but you will have to justify this to me.

You don't have to do all or even any of these! If you've got other ideas for making yourself festive that fits a Netrunner tournament, go for it - in the end, anything that you can justify to the judges as festive will improve your chances. If you have any questions about this festive side competition, feel free to message me asking.
