Board Game: Stronghold: 2nd edition
Portal Games debuted three titles at Gen Con 2015 — but not content to leave it at that, the Polish publisher then went on to introduce four new titles at Spiel 2015, with two items being new editions of previously released games and two items being expansions for other previously released games.

Portal's biggest title for Spiel 2015 was undoubtedly the second edition of Ignacy Trzewiczek's Stronghold, published in cooperation with Stronghold Games.

Board Game: Neuroshima: Convoy
• The other reboot from Portal Games was Neuroshima: Convoy, which retains the head-to-head Moloch vs. Outpost nature of the original 2012 release while also streamlining play through the elimination of the special abilities on individual city boards.

Board Game: Legacy: The Testament of Duke de Crecy – Five Families
Legacy: The Testament of Duke de Crecy – Five Families is a long title that already gives you a taste of what's included in this expansion for Michiel Hendriks' family-building game Legacy. Ideally for 2016 Portal Games will partner with Rob Daviau on a second expansion to be released under the name "Legacy Legacy".

Board Game: Theseus: The Dark Orbit – Hunters
Theseus: The Dark Orbit – Hunters adds a new faction to this "locked room" battle in space from Michał Oracz, with the hunters being the only faction able to unlock that room and step outside for a little while.

Board Game: Tides of Time
Board Game: Rattle, Battle, Grab the Loot
• In case you missed those earlier three releases from Portal at Gen Con 2015 — Tides of Time, Imperial Settlers: Atlanteans and Rattle, Battle, Grab the Loot — Trzewiczek gives an overview of the trio at Spiel 2015.
