Twilight 2000

Yet another game I truly like as a RPGs, is to play Twilight 2000 using 15mm Figures.

Okay so many people feel that it's out dated as far as the "Cold War" goes for the "Cold War is over or is it?

We currently live in a time were a nuclear accident could trigger a limited exchange more so today then 20 years ago.

We almost went there not long ago when a missile being tested, almost triggered such an event, when a simple thing as failing to share information between departments. State departments were aware but military departments were not informed.

Plus with the numbers of countries that have limited abilities today that they didn't have then. So you didn't live during the time period of the "Cold War" why bother with such a game, currently there are about 3500 missiles right now! ready to launch! you are living in a cold war so to speak, you could call it the out of mind war, we don't see it, we don't hear it, and we don't talk about it, so therefor it's out of mind.

All the better for such a game just change up the situation, location and update it to today, what if your were a soldier in Iraq or Afghanistan when such an event happens, how would you get home better yet how would you survive to get home.

Nice thing about this game is using 15mm figures for play, there are a wide range of modern figures one can use for what ever situation you would like from US Troops to Chinese Troops and almost everything in between to include vehicles and equipment, and the terrain can be what ever you wish it to be.

There are a lot of adventure add ons for this game as well.


  1. Never played it - Threads and the news of the day made it all a little too real. Ironically, enough time has passed that Twilight 2000 actually feels viable as a game to me - even if the world, today, is more dangerous than when it was just Us and Them

    1. I liked playing it way back when and feel it has a chance for a second life, I also feel it would be great for a more modern play and Post Apocalyptic gaming without all the extra weird stuff like mutants and magic.
