Default Looking for a game review on the 80s Necromancer small box game

Hi all!

I recently saw the box art for Necromancer (on the latest kickstarter) and I think it may be a game I've been trying to remember since the 80s.

In the 80s I read a review of a fantasy themed cardboard chit wargame that intrigued me. Since that time, I can no longer find the magazine but have been on a hunt to do so.

Do any of you know of magazines that did a review of Necromancer? I'm looking for the issue, so I can dig it up and see if it's the game I'm looking for.

Cheers!

Might have better luck in the TFT or general thread.
I know it wasnt Pyramid, though perhaps it was roleplayer but pretty sure that started later.

Moved it here out of the Pyramid forum because, although I don't know where this review may have appeared, I am certain it was not Pyramid.

I can't see a game on kickstarter that would be the successor of the Necromancer board game sjgames printed in 1982. Rise of the necromancers is certainly not it.



If you are looking for a good source of info on Necromancer, I find board game geek to be a half decent place to start.

No, it's not on Kickstarter yet. It's part of a forthcoming project that has been teased on a couple of SJ Games's former campaigns, along with the Daily Illuminator and various social media sites.

The Space Gamer #55 actually had the full game in it. Obviously not a review, but probably worth a look?
