Reviews

NBN's reprisal of the set, Threat Assessment is an interesting way to meddle with the runner's tempo.

Pros

Unlike Wake Up Call's 4 meat damage, absolutely 0 runners want 2 tags on their turn, and will amost always ead to the bounce option

Putting back a costly console or program could set the runner back many clicks and credits

Bouncing cards that host other cards such as Dhegdheer, Leprechaun, Dinosaurus, etc. doubles the setback

Can be used with Kala Ghoda Real TV to permanently get a runner card off the board

Gets around Sacrificial Construct and other prevent cards

Cons

RFG's after use, so recursion is impossible- have to make the right target choices

A few tag avoidance cards such as On the Lam and Forger exist- OtL is gaining in popularity especially

Best against a money poor runner, as bouncing something against a rich one only costs them time

Overall Threat Assessment is a great edition to the already impressive reprisal suite that is sure to make its way into at least a few NBN decks.

I think these reprisal cards may end up forcing some runners to include Slums in their builds again. —

Absolutely awesome against resources like loaded Net Mercur or The Turning Wheel; if the runner takes the tags, the resource can be trashed (though Fall Guys may make this harder). If it’s returned to grip, the hard-won counters are lost.
