Infinity, A Miniatures Combat Game

Infinity is a 28mm metal miniatures game simulating special operations and skirmishes in a high technology sci-fi universe.

Infinity recreates Direct Action operations, which are quick, lethal, and very risky. Missions are executed in the midst of a combat zone or behind enemy lines, but always in critical areas where the level of risk is the highest. The player assumes command of a small group of elite troops, specifically chosen before the battle begins to suit the mission's profile. This allows players to tailor their team's composition depending on the current mission, fielding different operatives from different units to find the professional troops whose skills may be the most useful during the operation.

Infinity is an innovative game system, dynamic and entertaining, which allows all players to participate during the entire gaming sequence. It possesses a great amount of realism and flexibility, providing players with a wide variety of tactical and strategic maneuvers to employ during the game.
