OFFICER TRAINING: ITS 9 Annihilation

Annihilation has lost specialists entirely, and it’s not alone in that. Several missions in season 9 now no longer need specialists at all. But don’t be fooled. What really changed was how this mission scores. Do you want to know more?

MISSION BREAKDOWN: Hunting Party

NOTE: ITS Season 8 Post As always, the breakdowns and advice for this mission assume equivalent player skill and roughly even dice luck.   There is a lot going on with this mission. A lot. I’ve tried to make this article as ‘chewable’ as possible. Hunting Party is essentially a ‘Bring ‘em back alive’ version…

OFFICER TRAINING: Quadrant Control

NOTE: ITS Season 8 Post As always, the breakdowns and advice for this mission assume equivalent player skill and roughly even dice luck.  Quadrant control is actually easier to score and play than Annihilation, and a good mission for teaching new players the importance of taking the second turn in ITS.

OFFICER TRAINING: Transmission Matrix

NOTE: ITS Season 8 Post As always, the breakdowns and advice for this mission assume equivalent player skill and roughly even dice luck.   “My best friend’s sister’s boyfriend’s brother’s girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who’s going with the girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night…” If…

OFFICER TRAINING: Annihilation

NOTE: ITS Season 8 Post Annihilation’s detractors might criticize it for being ‘simple’ but let’s be honest: when was anything in Infinity as simple as it seems? It does tend to play very quickly, and it teaches a really important skill: defensive deployment.
