Silent Death - My New Obsession

Posted September 6th, 2018 at 11:32 AM by kolakoski

Well met!

chas recently picked up a copy of Silent Death Next Millennium, a miniatures game released in 1995, which I had never heard of. I'm shocked, shocked, that it is so little known, as it is wonderfully elegant. With Taeblewalker, we played it last night, and had a blast!









From a review in BoardGameGeek:


Silent Death: The Next Millennium is the second edition of the Silent Death game published by Iron Crown Enterprises in 1995. This edition was written by Matt Forbeck.

Silent Death is one of my favorite games of all time. I have always had a blast playing this game.

The boxed set includes a 168 page rule book, scenario pack, tables and ship display pack, 48 plastic fighters (4 each of 12 types) and stands, 248 miniatures of missiles, torpedoes and asteroids,

We can't ignore this any longer . . .

Well met!

We can't ignore this any longer . . .

Sunday morning, I flew to McAllen, Texas to find out what's really happening to immigrant families ripped apart by the Trump administration.
There's one thing that's very clear: The crisis at our border isn't over.
I went straight from the airport to the McAllen Customs and Border Protection (CBP) processing center that is the epicenter of Donald Trump's so-called "zero-tolerance" policy. This is where border patrol brings undocumented migrants for intake before they are either released, deported, turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), or, in the case of unaccompanied or separated children, placed in the custody of Health and Human Services.
From the outside, the CBP processing center looks like any other warehouse on a commercial street lined with warehouses. There's no clue about the horrors inside.
Before we could get in,...

A Very Good Time to be a 'Scaper!

Posted June 25th, 2018 at 03:12 PM by kolakoski


Well met!




Secret Island Base of 'Scape


To begin, some shout outs:

To all those who have aided and abetted my Kha obsession (especially my SoV mentor @BiggaBullfrog), on this site and among the Gang of Four, a big thank you for your patience.





Kha appears to be on track to be released as an SoV unit (although it may be posthumous ).

To @Dignan and @Flash_19, thanks for their fine maps. I've been suggesting Dignan's maps in my blog for years (see Kolakoski's Map Suggestions), while Flash_19's are relatively new on the scene.


To dok, thanks for Flip 'em first,

Islandscape 2018!

Well met!

Big year in Karate - climaxed with promoting to Sensei - but expensive (promotion ~ $400). So not going to Karate Summer Camp this year. The silver lining to this is that Summer Camp occurs on the same weekend as Islandscape (7/22), so I will be competing again this year.

Super Duper Kudos to Warbanner for coming up with the coolest format yet -- 5 armies (500, 525, 550, 575 and 600 points, no unit in more than one army) played in succession, with the 600 point army for a potential championship game. The NYC Gang of Four will be represented in its entirety at this event. We may have a little mini-tournament in early July, and/or chas and I may get together separately. Last year's performance proved once again that my level of play is not quite elite, so I feel justified in displaying a not quite elite level of cheesiness this year. I have already built 5 tentative armies for this tournament (see spoiler below).

Spoiler Alert!
