Data Tokens launched in 2012, as our first real effort in custom game tokens. We wanted a beautifully designed token set that fit in with the Android universe and clearly tracked the game state for both players. Fortunately, many Netrunner players wanted the same, and the support that Data Tokens received still impacts us to this day.
The Revised Core Set announcement dropped in 2017, and we immediately started working on a Data Token update to celebrate its release. Instead of dramatically changing the classic, double-engraved parallax imagery, we opted to meticulously refine it. Each token was brought up to our current design and manufacturing standards, informed by an additional five years of experience.
Now, Data Tokens are ready for this new phase of Android: Netrunner. Keep running with the best.
This set includes:
- 15x 1-Credit/1-Advancement Token
- 5x 5-Credit/5-Advancement Token
- 12x Virus Counter
- 5x Brain Damage Token
- 5x Power Token
- 4x Bad Publicity Token
- 4x Tag Token
Every token in the set is translucent, with complementary front and back designs that create a holographic, parallax effect. Watch as each design seems to hover in space, as if projected from a PAD or similar console.
Both the 1- and 5- Credits are different sizes and colors in order to facilitate clarity during gameplay, and each is paint-filled on both sides. Easily flip between money and advancement without reaching for additional tokens.
The Virus Counter demonstrates a controlled chaos at the heart of malicious code, with bright red, geometric repetition backed by fractal patterns.
Each of the five Brain Damage Tokens is slightly different, with each representing actual brain scans of humans responding to pain. There is no better way to internalize the harsh reality of getting wrecked by a nasty piece of HB ICE.
Power Tokens are ideal for thematically marking random effects during a game of Netrunner. We use them as, of course, power counters, as well as agenda counters, femme tokens, “once per turn” signifiers, and everything else.
Both the Bad Publicity and Tag Tokens stand out with rectangular shapes (smaller than the 1.0 versions) and evocative imagery, since forgetting either can be disastrous. Keep the Bad Publicity Tokens in your credit pool and flip them over when used – or pair them with our Recurring Credits (sold separately) for even better credit tracking during a run.
Here are a few more reasons why we love them:
- Art-forward designs create a more engaging game experience
- Complementary front and back imagery creates holographic, parallax effect
- Striking colors provide easy recognition and comprehension at a glance
- Laser-cut to exceedingly precise measurements
- Will not bend, warp, or fade over time
- Made from the highest quality acrylic available
- Designed in-house at Covenant in Tulsa, OK
- Manufactured in small batches in Tulsa, OK
Every token is covered with adhesive protective paper to prevent cosmetic damage during shipment, so peel them before use! The appearance of your tokens may vary ever so slightly from the renderings and images shown here due to color variations in displays, cameras, and acrylic. Data Tokens are third-party accessories produced and sold exclusively by us, Team Covenant.
