BLOG: What happened in Alton?

Where to start? This time I guess I need to take you to Alton in Hamshire, England. That’s where it all began. I was sitting in Asmodee UK offices meeting with their sales team and presenting Detective. It was spring 2018, a few months before the release of the game

Few names from the rescue expedition

On our behalf and Fawcett family’s, we would like to thank each and every one of you for such a fantastic response on to our call! We were genuinely stunned to see that many brave people, jumping in to search for Colonel. We’ve been going through the list, trying to

BLOG: I hate board games!

I hate board games. I am serious. It’s a constant flow of disasters. I see new amazing cover art and I am immediately sold on the game. I know nothing about the gameplay, I did not read the rulebook, but man, I know it’s gonna be great. Hey, don’t give

Correspondence from Brazil

Restless days and bad omens

The jungle is as hostile as it ever was. It has already been 23 days of travel through it, and even though we are doing fine, something weird is going on. Rimmel got severe food poisoning, and he’s not looking good, but that’s not what I mean. All I know

In one of his reviews, Tom Vasel once said that every game should have ultimate and final tie-breaker. He said he really is disappointed with: “In such case, both players share the victory.” I couldn’t agree more. I precisely remember my one and the only game of Power Grid that

Welcome to PORTAL GAMES

We are bookworms. Movie maniacs. Story addicts. We grew up reading Tolkien, Howard, Herbert, Dick, Lem… We were watching Willow, Blade Runner, Never Ending Story, Robin Hood…

And yet, we don’t write books… we don’t make movies. We don’t make those things, because we make games. We make games that tell stories.
