This gaming magazine included a complete fantasy or science fiction game in each issue, some featuring gamebook-like elements. Several Ares offerings were later republished as stand-alone boxed games. The series included two adventures of the spaceship B.S.M. Pandora; the first of these, The Wreck of the B.S.M. Pandora, contained no gamebook elements (and thus is not listed here), but the second included text paragraphs providing a narrative for the game.

Ares was eventually absorbed into Dragon Magazine after SPI was purchased by TSR.
