We are pleased to announce the addition of Infinity to the games played at the NOVA Open. Infinity will make its entry at the NOVA Open 2012 with a 16-person Infinity ITS tournament run over two days. We will be using missions from the Infinity Campaign book due for early 2012 release.
What is Infinity?
Infinity is a 28mm miniatures skirmish game simulating combat and special operations in the near future. Infinity’s miniatures exhibit a futuristic aesthetic characterized by high levels of detail and dynamic poses. In addition to free, downloadable rules, there is a detailed wiki available for those looking to learn more about the game and universe.
What if I’m already signing up for another big event at NOVA?
We’ve organized the schedule so participants can play in both the Infinity tournament and other events, including Warmachine/Hordes, the Warhammer Fantasy GT and the Warhammer 40k GT. The first two rounds of the Infinity tournament will be played on Friday morning, August 30th. The Final Four will then play on Sunday afternoon in Rounds 3 and 4. We will use a similar “Day 2 Brackets” style to the NOVA Open Warhammer 40k GT, ensuring players compete meaningfully for prizes and recognition on the 2nd day of the event. This system earned high praise at the NOVA Open 2011, and we will continue that trend and many of the same themes of fairness and reward for all player types with Infinity events at the NOVA 2012.
We will also be running demo events over the course of the weekend. Have a friend who’s playing in the 40K/Fantasy/Warmachine/Malifaux/Flames of War events that’s interested in learning about Infinity? Bring them over to the demo table, and we’ll be glad to show them how it’s played.
Tickets for the event will go on sale January 1, 2012. Tickets will allow you to game on both days of the Infinity tournament, as well as put your name in for the results of Corvus Belli’s ITS system. Prize support will be generous, coming from a wide variety of sources and sponsors.
If you’re new to Infinity or a seasoned veteran, sign up for the first NOVA Open Infinity Tournament and test your skills!
