You have a few options:

1. Trade out cyberware for non-cyber equivalents. Cyberarm -->
Ruger/Uzi/Shotgun with ammo, Dermal Plate --> Harley Scorpion/Armor
Jacket/Lined Coat, Hand Razors --> Katana, etc.

2. Switch deck styles to using Mages, Shamans, Riggers or Deckers
until your friends step back off the anti-cyber craze. Or build a
sleaze deck that won't lean so heavily on cyber augmentation.

3. Recylce trashed runners and cyberware as you burn off your
opponent's specials via things like Chop Shop and Squatter.

4. Add in more Special counter-measures along with LotI: Protective
Spirit, Wabbit's Foot, State of Confusion, Ghost Who Walks, ...

Hope it helps some.

I know we were at 200-some a week or so ago. I'll try and pull a head
count this weekend.
