Description Edit | History

Silent Death is a fast-playing miniatures game of star fighter combat set in a future in which mankind has spread through the stars.

The miniatures are moved on a hexgrid. Movement is two-dimensional and of the "cinematic" variety, with minimal concern for inertia.

Combat resolution uses dice in a clever way: each weapon and character rolls a different combination of dice. The total determines a hit; the damage dealt usually equals the highest, middle, or lowest number rolled, depending on the weapon. Each ship design features a damage track. As damage is taken, different ship systems are gradually damaged or destoyed.

The game features many different starship designs, although it focuses on smaller fightercraft. Expansions introduce larger corvette ships, cargo ships, and additional aliens. A great many of these ships are available as plastic or metal minitatures. Ship construction rules are also provided to creat your own designs.
