Silent Death – Metal Express (ICE #7010)

Silent Death is a space combat game, normally played with miniatures. Most ships are fighter and heavy-fighters in size, but there are expansions to include gunboats and small capital ships. Each ship has a control sheet to make all bookkeeping (mostly damage and ammo when necessary) easier. The game is normally played in 10 turns, each player alternate moving all ships before making attacks.

From designer’s notes:
Silent Death is an attempt to produce a fun and fast-moving game that is simple to learn. The mix of design trade-offs (detail for playability) in the Standard Game feels about right, but since you can’t satisfy all of the people all of the time, we piled in a bunch of optional rules so players can find their own optimum mix; either simpler or more complex.

 

Silent Death – Night Brood : Campaign Against the Grubs (ICE #7013)

A gruesome new menace stirs on the periphery of known space. Armed with devastating technologies and a thirst for mayhem, these Hatchling aliens (known simply as Grubs), burst forth from their hidden Clutch-worlds. Millions of them, including an overwhelming contingent of bio-mechanical starfighters, embark on a sector-wide rampage. In their path stand a few isolated frontier planets with a rag-tag collection of out-dated fighters and ordnance.

Emergency calls go out to Imperial garrisons hundreds of light years away. The Terrans muster their far-flung forces, but every delay brings the fall of another frontier world. The clock is ticking, the Hatchlings are gaining strength, and this crisis is rapidly spinning out of control!

Night Brood chronicles the events of the First Hatchling Scourge—the invasion of the Tau Albriton Frontier Sector and the subsequent Imperial relief effort.
