1. Introduction

(from the Vae Victis website :)
Every two months with 68 full colour pages, VaeVictis offers as an insert a complete war-game [...] of a great battle of history, complete game rules to play with figurines immediately, articles on military history (analysis of strategy and tactics throughout the ages, presentation of the units used in military campaigns) and all about what is going on in the war-games world, on maps, with figurines, or on computer together with critical analysis and new release box opening.

Vae Victis is a French language game magazine published bimonthly. Issues 1 to 121 were published by Histoire & Collections, replaced by Cérigo Editions starting from issue 122.

2. General description

2.1 Unmounted and uncut games (Standard issues and "Hors-Série")

Issues 1 to 84 contained a A2 map format wargame, while issues 85 to 99 contained A4 map format wargame.
Starting with issue 100, the wargame is only included in the "Special game" version.

"Hors-Série" issues 1 to 5 and issues 7 to 9 are on miniatures wargames while "Hors-Série" issues 6 and 10 are on board wargames. Starting with "Hors-Série" issue 11, articles are now on both miniatures and cardboard wargames.

The games published in Vae Victis standard issues 1 to 99 and special issues 6 and 10 "Hors-série" must be mounted and cut out. These games are in French, although English translations are available for most.

2.2 Die-cut counter games (Special games and Wargame collection)

Issue 98 and all issues starting with issue 100 are also sold with a professional quality wargame (108 die-cut counters and A3 map). This version is labelled "Special game". English translations are available online for all except one (En pointe toujours !).

Following "Hors-Série" issue 11 publication, wargames are now published in Wargame Collection in French and English (216 die-cut counters and A2 map). This collection is printed, independently from the magazine ("Hors-Série" or standard issues), twice a year.

(Special note for issue 98 : the standard version contains an unmounted wargame while the "Special game" version added an other die-cut counters wargame.)
