James Pittman Game Lead
Lifelong gamer, sci-fi, fantasy and anime nerd James has been gaming for more than 20 years. Introduced to Infinity more than 5 years ago starting in 2nd edition, James has been running Infinity events for more than 4 years and and is an Official Infinity Warcor. After playing events all over Florida and the east coast as far as Gencon James is bringing Infinity back to the Crucible for 7. Infinity is a game and ruleset that works well for both new and veteran players alike and all are welcome at Infinity events for Crucible 7! Last year we had a huge turnout and hope to improve it this year!
175 years in the future, humanity has conquered the stars. These brave souls are the members of the Human Sphere in the game INFINITY. Infinity is a sci-fi tabletop skirmish wargame that recreates Direct Action operations, high-stakes missions in the battlefront or behind enemy lines, where victory or death is 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.

Team Rules Interactions:
Command Token Strategic Use: The use of command tokens for either strategic option (Removal of orders, restriction of command tokens) is done PER PLAYER. Teams going second can opt to only use the strategic use on 1 of their 2 opponents.
Example: Team 1 is going first, Team 2 opts to use the strategic use of the command token to remove 2 orders from Team 1’s order pools, EACH TEAM 2 PLAYER will have to expend a command token.
Command Token Tactical Use: Tactical use of command tokens can only be done to impact the army list of the individual player.
Example: Player 1 of Team 1 fails a doctor roll on a model with cube. Player 1 may spend a command token to re-roll the doctor roll, but Player 2 may not. Note: If player 1 is ‘doctoring’ a player 2 model, they may still use the command token to re-roll as it is Player 1 making the rolls. Player 2 will still not be able to use their tokens even if the target is a Player 2 model.
Strategos and other abilities that target your ‘opponent’ – These abilities will only impact a single opponent, not the entire opposing team. The impacted ‘opponent’ must be selected when any ability is revealed or activated. These abilities also do not impact both friendly players. Example: Strategos does not allow an entire team to hold 2 models in reserve, it only allows the army in which the LT has strategos the benefit of an extra reserve model.
