Publication historyEdit

ReceptionEdit

Aaron Allston reviewed Knights & Magick in The Space Gamer No. 35.[2] Allston commented that "Overall, I would guardedly recommend Knights & Magick, but not to straight FRP gamers; they would find little of use. Fantasy and historical miniatures gamers will find some innovation and a good deal of resource material."[2]

Lawrence Schick felt that the game was "Designed mainly to sell Heritage miniatures".[1]
