The base game is as little as $33 from Defiant... I'm tempted to pick up another copy just to get doubles of some cards. The monthly packs are around $13?
The big thing about this game, is that everyone has access to everything. There's none of the usual "You have to buy 3 rares at $50 each to be competitive". For me, it's a really solid game, I prefer it over any other card games I've played and I've played nearly everything. It's the Asymmetrical Game Play that I find the most appealing.
Average game goes for about 20-30 minutes, someone plays the Hacker, another plays the Evil Corporation
I've had games last 5 minutes, Hacker got blown up
I've had games last longer, but in general being able to bash out a couple of games over a lunch break is awesome.
Here's a link for more information. (8.5/10 rating on BGG)

If I can manage it, I'll see if I can set up a meet and play some time soon. I know Jason would be probably be keen if he's available. 4 people would be the best then we can have 2 games going at once. I'll see what I can get sorted after the baby arrives. Which is ... soon. Really, really, really soon!
