This card, whether it shakes out in the meta or not, is an absolute triumph of narrative design and storytelling. I looked up the translation of Jeitinho expecting it to mean something like "murder/assassination",or perhaps to be a particular type of weapon. However, Jeitinho (from wikipedia) "is a Portuguese word to describe a method of finding a way to accomplish something by circumventing or bending the rules or transgressing social conventions." This is working thematically here on so many levels. Narratively, it speaks to Mercury's desire to both subvert her bioroid programming, and also to 'solve' the Automata Initiative. However, it is also mechanically circumventing the rules of netrunner by allowing the runner to win by alternative means. In some respects, Jeitinho is best exemplified not by the card itself, but the current efforts by the community to make it work as a wincon.

A sincere congratulations to the narrative, design and development teams at NSG- brilliant design!

I was of course immediately curious whether there are any other Assassination agendas in the game, and the answer β€” which makes sense β€” is no. (Character Assassination is not an Assassination agenda, it turns out. And it’s of course rotated.) I expect that NSG will not release any either, having chosen a previously unused subtype.
