King Arthur’s Knights (1978)

Recommended Posts

King Arthur's Knights is so old school it was released back when Chaosium was "The Chaosium". A fun little boardgame in Arthurian England, fighting opponents and finding romance. Another of those early games that's a short step from being an RPG. Meints' Out of the Suitcase blog post on KAK was a very helpful primary source.

Do you think the map would be useful for Pendragon RPG play?

Also, I thought I recalled an article for this game in Dragon magazine #58 (February 1982), but it turns out I was thinking of the Knights of Camelot board game (1980) from TSR. I wonder how many Arthurian board games came out at that time?

D&D is an elf from Tolkien, a barbarian from Howard, and a mage from Vance fighting monsters from Lovecraft in a room that looks like it might have been designed by Wells and Giger. - TiaNadiezja
