"Jeux & Stratégie" (Games & Strategy) was THE game magazine of the 80's in France. The first issue was a quarterly magazine, but the success was such that it became a bimonthly with the second one.

Inside the magazine, you could find everything. Great classics (chess, checkers, backgamon, go, etc...), mathematical games, puzzles, cryptography games, games for programmable pocket calculator, games for computers in basic and, of course, boardgames, role-playing games and wargames.

Each issue came with a complete game as an insert (with counters to be mounted). These games covered a large span of genres, as you will see in this geeklist.

Jeux & Stratégie (or J&S, as fans called it with affection) is mythical in France because it was the very first magazine to introduce role-playing games and wargames to a national audience. (Casus Belli was at first a confidential magazine for gamers only.)

J&S lasted 9 years and a half, with 60 issues. With the competition of video games, and specialized magazines, J&S died a first time in July 1989. Three months later, a part of the redaction tried to relive the magazine. This new series (Nouvelle Formule) lasted for 8 issues only and J&S died a second time in July 1990.

In 2004, a new magazine relived the name as "Tangente Jeux & stratégie". I don't include it here. For now...

There is the complete list of boardgames and wargames published by J&S. In some occasions, small boardgames were published inside the magazine (and leads to the destruction of some pages ). The infamous "Don juans et drageurs" is the best exemple of these littles boardgames. I'm not sure they deserve a full entry in BGG. So, for now, I list them in the comments.

On 68 issues, some aren't listed here because the insert was remplaced by mini-role-playing games (blame the budget cuts). And so, no entry on BGG for issues 56, 59, 61 (or NF1), 64 (NF4) and 65 (NF5). J&S had also three special issues (hors-série): role playing games "Mega 1" and "Mega 2" and a special video games issue.

As I haven't play these games for a very long time, I do not rate them, but I will comment some of them. Those I remenber at last...
