Escape From Infinity is played in a series of rounds. Each round of play consist of two phases; 1) Assigning Movement, and 2) Revealing / Fulfilling Movement. Rounds are repeated with the starting player rotating clockwise until one player completes the predetermined number of laps required to win. In phase 1 each player secretly assigns a movement value for each piece on the board, in phase 2 each player chooses a piece to move, they reveal the card and resolve the movement, play continues clockwise until all movement cards have been revealed and resolved.
The strategy of the game comes in both determining how to assign movement values, and the timing of when each movement is revealed and resolved. Each players aim being to stall their opponents on the detour circles while their own piece moves safely past.
Beautiful game. I dig it. Perfect for family nights or dating nights and stuff.
