You could try to make the others use different Specials by strengthening
other aspects of Your deck like Magic or Decking. They will not use too
many Specials, and if they get the impression that Your Deckers, Mages
etc. are giving them severe headaches, they´ll focus on those more.
Another possibility is using so much Cyberware that they can´t possibly
play Cyber-Psychosis or Chrome Infection on all of the Runners. A good
trick is playing cheap Cyberware on a cheap Runner to make them play
their Specials on that one, and then You have a free hand at using Your
more important Cyberware. ---Felix
