I've been laying dormant for about 7 years and ready to break out and at least start painting minis again. I'm not exactly able to make it down that often, but I would like to focus myself on things that are relevant.

So, what I'm really asking, is what is being played these days? 

I've currently got Infinity, Malifaux, and WHFB. From what I gather Infinity is safe. I only ever got one game in but do like it. Malifaux has a new edition coming out but is anyone playing? WH is dead, but this 9th age shenanigans might be pretty good?

Yay! Welcome back. It's still smorgasbord as far as what is being played.  I'm down playing infinity tonight, and I know there's a game of 40k lined up. There's lots of 40k going on in general at the shop, it seems, though not necessarily on "WarHamster" night.  Sherbert plays some 9th age every once in a while. Lots of board games.  

I am partial to Infinity, and there's usually 3-4 of us playing on Tuesdays, plus Andy is really good about organizing tournaments here.

You coming out tonight?

No, it'll probably be a while before I make it out for a Tuesday (I'm bowling on Tuesdays this Spring). I might want to set up a random game here or there though.

I'll probably stick mostly to Infinity then, for now. Fitting, since it's the last thing I actually bought anyway. I never actually learned the game beyond the basics. What's the average game size?

Standard game size is 300 points/6 SWC.  The official Army Builder for Infinity is actually really good these days (like, other game companies need to take a serious look at how well it's executed and kept updated).  Link: https://army.infinitythegame.com/.  There's an official Android app as well, but nothing on IOS yet (though the mobile site is quite good).

The rules wiki is also a fantastic resource and is kept up to date with each new rules update.  Link: http://infinitythewiki.com/en/Main_Page

*note that clicking on skills and stuff in the Army Builder links you directly to the wiki. 

We pretty much play ITS (the official tourney system) scenarios/rules for pick up games/etc.  There's a few modifications each season to the regular rules.  Currently Medium Infantry get Forward Deployment Level 1 for free, drop troops don't need to use the blast template for placement when dropping, and TAGs get Fatality Level 1 for free.  That more or less covers it.  The full ITS rules are here: https://assets.infinitythegame.net/downloads/itsrules/season10/en/v1.0/season10.pdf.  If you're looking for an easier to digest version of the scenarios, check out the app Comlog.  Pretty much everyone that plays Infinity uses it nowadays, and it's expected to be used in tourneys (so glad I don't have to print out a ton of pages of missions that will just get tossed in the trash at the end of the day).

I run a tourney every other month (next one will be 5/26), alternating with the Canadians.  We'll probably also do either an Escalation League or some type of Campaign in the near future.  @Wiccus will likely organize once school calms down a bit, or I'll step up if he's too busy.

I"m Andy btw, nice to meet you!  If you have any questions or want to BS about the state of the meta/etc, feel free to hit me up.  We also have a FB group that gets used for setting up games/chatting about upcoming events/etc, if you use the book of faces: https://www.facebook.com/groups/311125849638839/
