  Ruling Source Date
The Corp has the right to count the Runner's bits before the effect starts, but not once the guessing game begins. Sparky

You must encounter a piece of ice before you pass it. If the Runner chooses an unrezzed piece of ice, the Corp has a chance to rez that ice. Sparky

Social Engineering only allows you to pass that piece of ice one time during that run. Skipper Pickle

This is such a weird card. I suppose there is a correlation between the total number of  bits the runner has and the outcome of the Corp.'s guess.

more numbers between 2 and the runner's bit total = more numbers of potentially wrong guesses for the Corp.
