User summary:

SPI (Simulations Publications, Inc.) created and published Arēs issues 1 through 11 and created issue 12. They also created and published two "Special Editions".

TSR published Arēs issue 12 and created and published issues 13 through 17.

Each of these issues included a full game with a foldout map and counters.

In April 1984, a dedicated section called Arēs appeared in Dragon. This section functioned essentially as a magazine-within-a-magazine, but had a different focus than the standalone issues. This incarnation appeared between Dragon (Issue 84 - Apr 1984) and Dragon (Issue 111 - Jul 1986) and was then discontinued.

A digital archive of all seventeen regular and two special editions was later marketed by SPI (Simulations Publications, Inc.).

N.B. the "Internet Archive" (at archive.org) holds all issues of Arēs online, and they remain legal for personal download.
