Reception[edit]

Rick Swan reviewed Quest for the Silver Sword for Dragon magazine #191 (March 1993).[1] He reviewed the adventure Sword and Shield in the same column, and felt that these two introductory adventures typify the "easy-on-the-brain" revised Dungeons & Dragons game, as each of them "boasts clutter-free story lines, maps that double as game boards, and colorful sheets of punch-out counters that makes playing a breeze".[1] He felt that Quest for the Silver Sword would be easier to manage for beginners than Sword and Shield. Swan commented: "Game snobs may sneer at the meager plots and superficial characters - these are, after all, little more than glorified dungeon crawls - but the nasty monsters and gaudy treasures are guaranteed to dazzle novices. Weary Dungeon Masters can run either adventure almost effortlessly; I didn't even have to read them first."[1]
