thru-the-portal is a free to download ezine that my husband and I have been producing since January. We love gaming, and learning about the gaming community, and we want to share what we learn with everyone who will listen so that we can grow this hobby into new and unchartered territory. We do not just focus on boardgames, but RPGs, LARPs, and video games can feature as well.

This geeklist features the highlights of the 3rd issue, and I will be adding the 1st and 2nd issue in the near future on separate Geeklists. I hope you find something that sparks your interest! To view the full articles, you can download the ezine from:

Our first feature covers the our weekend at the UK Games Expo in Birmingham, England. This mid sized convention covered the gamut of gaming, a superb venue,and super friendly atmosphere that could teach a few in the gaming community a thing or two what this hobby is all about!
