  1. Social Engineering Triggering Multiple Times Ruling
    If the ice is rezzed multiple times in the turn that Social Engineering is played, does the runner gain credits equal to the rez cost every time the ice is rezzed, or only the first time?
    The card does not say “whenever,” but “if,” so it is a binary condition that can only be fulfilled once.
  2. Reina Roja + Social Engineering Ruling
    Does Reina's passive apply to the credits gained from social engineering?
    Yes, her ability applies.
  3. Priority Must Be Played With First Spent Click Ruling
    what's the deal with early bird + losing a click at start of turn? I assume "first click" refers to "first click spent", yes?
    That is correct.
