    Can a player charge cards that have 2 or more power counters?

    Yes, a card that has 2 power counters qualifies as having at least 1 power counter.

Reviews

If you use Endurance, you should have one copy of this program, it is that good. Because it is unique, having three copy of it would usually not be useful. With all the power counter usage in Shapers (Dr. Nuka Vrolyck, Endurance, Hippocampic Mechanocytes, Environmental Testing, Nyashia, Propeller, Takobi, Hyperbaric), it is a must have program. All of this at 0 cost!

Out of faction, it can power up cards like Time Bomb, Poison Vial, WAKE Implant v2A-JRJ, Revolver and "Baklan" Bochkin. Not to mention the often used Earthrise Hotel. For only 2 influences, it is such a powerful card.

It is so good that it will encourage the corp to trash their ice, which is good for you, considering that it cost you 0 to play.

That is an amazing program that will have a great effect, for the low cost of one MU.

The art completely reflect this, reminding us of an old movie. I really love the quote, reminding us that many english speaker do not agree on how to pronounce "giga" or "gif" :-) haha! Stupendous card design all together!
