thru-the-portal, launching January 2010, will be a quarterly digital magazine targeted at the social gaming community. The magazine will be covering board games, card games, miniatures, RPGs, LARPing, and MMORPGs. There will be reviews, game news, articles, and special features, along with a once-a-year printer edition.

The great part is that the digital magazine will be free and it’s encouraged to help distribute it through your own websites, etc…

Right now they’re setting up by finding contributors, advertisers, and retailers. More info can be found at

It’s refreshing to see a new magazine come into play, and I wish them the best with their effort. I’ll be looking forward to January to see how well things pan out.
