We believe that the most enjoyable gaming periodicals are not just devoted to single games or even the products of a single company, but also include content that makes a reader interested in other games, material that can be applied to all or many sorts of games, and items that are self-standing and which can be played on their own. For that reason, this publication includes many voices and exclusive material compatible with many rules systems and the products of many different companies.
Electronic copies of the magazine are available through a number of online venues, including DriveThruRPG (http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/product_info.php?products_id=83393), and subscriptions are available through the Skirmisher Game Store (http://skirmisher.cerizmo.com/items/6320--d-infinity-subscription).
