ToysBulletin.com called The Gate “a magnificent game.” The independent toy review website went on to say that The Gate “…introduced some new element of strategy each time we played, and that is rare to find in today's board games.” ToysBulletin.com also listed The Gate as one of the best games of 2012. An article in the Ohio Plain Dealer recently raved, “It’s destined to be a classic.”
Launched at Toy Fair 2012, The Gate is currently available in over fifty stores in eight states with plans for expanded distribution in the coming year. The Gate combines the competitive spirit of a classic board game with a fun fantasy theme. The game contains over 330 cards, 10 specially designed dice, and custom zinc pieces. It’s actually 2 games in 1 – beginner and advanced rules are included. The beginner game is accessible to younger players while the advanced version offers a strategic challenge to high school kids, college students, and adults.
