  1. Sneakdoor Beta v. Hokusai Grid, Tori Hanzō Ruling
    I am wondering about how Tori Hanzō works with Sneakdoor Beta and Hokusai Grid.

    If i am not mistaken, when the runner uses Sneakdoor Beta, an Hokusai Grid on Archives would not trigger but an Hokusai Grid on HQ would, since the replacement effect of Sneakdoor Beta must trigger first.

    Now, let's say I have Hokusai Grid on HQ. The runner uses Sneakdoor Beta and makes a successful run. Can I use a Tori Hanzō on HQ to change the Hokusai Grid damage to brain damage? What about a Tori Hanzō on Archives?

    Tori Hanzō would have to be protecting HQ, just like the Hokusai Grid, to be used.
  2. Sneakdoor Beta & Security Testing Ruling
    If the Runner uses Sneakdoor Beta with Security Testing targeting HQ, does the Runner get credits or an HQ access?
    The Runner must take 2 credits.
