Infinity recreates Direct Action operations, high-stakes missions in the battlefront or behind enemy lines, where victory or death are a trigger pull away. Players command a small group of elite soldiers, chosen for their adequacy to the mission parameters at hand. Each battle calls for a different composition, and building an effective team from hand-picked members of different regiments is key to a successful operation. Infinity is a groundbreaking, dynamic system that allows you to make meaningful, fun choices throughout the entire game sequence, and gives you the tools to implement any number of strategies with realism and flexibility.” -infinitythegame.com Items needed to play: -A Rulebook, army lists and Weapons Chart. -Infinity miniatures. -20-sided dice (at least three) -Templates (Circular, Large and Small Teardrop) and Markers. -Measuring tape.
