I have played through all of the Core Game and Expansion Scenarios, and even fooled around with Scenario X (Biblical Era) a bit. I am wondering if anyone can tell me the best way to access other official scenarios, such as those published in C3I Magazine, which I have never seen.

I know Alessandro's fan site has many fan scenarios, but for now I'd like to stay with the official ones. Since I have and play all C&C Games with all of their expansions (as well as many, many other board games), I am only now searching these out. For example, I see on Files Page Two a number of other Core Game (Carthage) scenarios.

My Sept. 2018 Starting Point

This started out for me today when I began to compile all of the scenarios I have, so I can go back and choose to replay some of them. I noticed that the scenario list in Expansion #1 which lists Core Game "Second Edition Battles" on Page 31 (the inside back page, where some later expansions listed their scenarios on the back cover) notes 14 Scenarios, where I have only 10 (Ticinius River does not appear, but Metaurus, 2nd Beneventum, Bagrades, Trebbia, and Great Plains do).

I see that these and about 20 other Carthage battles appear in a post on Files Page Two. Are other official battles from later expansions listed on the Fan Site rather than in the Files as these are?

This is my very first post on the C&C Ancients forum, as far as I recall. I'll be doing more research on previous posts here and on the fan site, but there is so much that I'm overwhelmed right now at how many there are to look over! So thanks for any help you can give me, to start me off and get some shortcuts to finding other official scenarios!

On top of this I would add Vae Victis scenarios:

1. Is C3i a GMT publication? Is it restricted to C&C Ancients? Is it available online?

2. What/who is Vae Victus?

It is Rodger B. MacGowan magazine (https://www.c3iopscenter.com/) which mainly published GMT related stuff - additional scenarios, counters, articles. Really cool stuff which spices additionally the already published games.

It is French magazine about board games and history (https://www.vaevictismag.fr/en/). They actually had 3 official scenarios created by Richard Borg publishe din one of their magazines (https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1448594/new-scenarios-vae-v...). I put them in Vasal format and Alessandro published them on his webstie (https://www.commandsandcolors.net/ancients/news/1134-2017-09...)

Hope that helps!
