Stay at home and play for free

Challenging times breed creative measures. As we all are trying to #stayhome as much as possible to #flattenthecurve, Portal Games has prepared for you free content for our games that you can play alone at home.

We have prepared a free case Detective: Suburbia. The link will lead you to a webpage, where you can download all the cards, gameboard, and everything necessary to play the free case. Important: you don’t need to own the base game Detective to play this case. Good luck!

3 fun and challenging solo scenarios. One of them will take you to Japan, in the other one your clan will face the Frozen Giants, and in the third scenario you will build the most prosperous farm. You can use these scenarios with any Empires of the North clan you like.

A treat for all Neuroshima Hex 3.0 fans – a very cool thematic plot board for Sand Runners with additional non-tournament rules. It’s time to move the conflict from the kitchen to the game board! 😉

A promo sheet for Imperial Settlers: Roll & Write for 2 players, created by our fan Michał Pilc, that you can print out and play alone or with your housemates. A perfect way to chill out after a hectic Home Office day…

Feel like you need a break from those comfy house clothes and enter the big world of fashion? Here are 3 additional scenarios for Pret-a-Porter you can download and apply during the game tonight. Fashion Week in Essen will have you face the dropping quality of materials, strive for uniqueness and enjoy the benefits of your Evergreen Collection. In Modern Times scenario you will use internet banking, your employees will work from home, and you’ll introduce quality control. In Hype Train scenario you will be teasing your audience with your designes using social media. The 2 latter scenarios were part of our Pret-a-Porter Kickstarter campaign but given the current circumstances we’ve decided to publish them to bring you some fun for those long self-isolation days.

It’s time to add a bit of horror to our evenings. In the special Halloween sheet for Imperial Settlers: Roll & Write you will be building Haunted Mansion and Dracula’s palace and using evil pumpkins to do so. Since the sheet is using additional Resources, it is a real challenge. Get ready for some brain-burning experience.

Are you a RPG fan? Or quite contrary – you have no idea what it means, and you have a ton of questions, that you’ve been always too shy to ask? We have a great suggestion for your evening tonight. “Play smart. Insightful advice on how to be a successful GM” is the book by Ignacy Trzewiczek, in which he explains what RPG is, how to build a Hero, how to act as a Game Master and build a good relationship with the players in the game, as well as lot’s of great tips and advice based on Ignacy’s impressive experience with RPGs. The book is a great source of information not only for the beginners, but for the advanced RPG players as well. We’re publishing a significant part of the book, which will introduce you to the fascinating world of RPGs.

Let’s go back to the last year’s board game conventions. Those were the days… All the board game geeks sitting together at the game tables, new games at the publishers’ booths, hours of gaming, meeting new people. What a bliss… Tonight we can all go back in time thanks to the special promo sheets for Imperial Settlers: Roll & Write, that were created for the largest game conventions last year. Even if we are at home, doesn’t mean that our Settlers can’t have some fun at UK Game Expo, Berlincon, Gencon and Essen Spiel. And we’ll still come back!

Let’s escape this planet for a moment, shall we? And once you’re on Mars, why not make sure your buildings are perfectly adapted for whatever future might bring? To make it easier we’re publishing new alternative building upgrades for you to use when playing First Martians. Print them out, and at the start of the game throw a coin for each building separately to decide which card (the one from the base game or the printed one) will be used during your game. Good luck!

All 51st State fans will be delighted, as we’re publishing free print’n’play file with 4 additional Faction boards. Play Hegemony, Texas, Mississippi or University, use their special powers and implement a new strategy in your next gameplay. Don’t forget that 51st State has a solo variant as well. It’s perfect to try out new game tactics of the new Factions.

Check out this page tomorrow! We’re preparing even more awesome content to entertain you. Take care and stay safe! #stayathome


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.
