Ok, so I get the reference between "gateway" and the St. Louis tagline... but I had to think twice about it, and I chuckled... thinking it was initially a kin to a "gateway drug". Like... "D&D is a gateway game to more serious d20 RPGs, a new study finds. Federal authorities are on the look-out of these and other gateway games that may turn a casual gamer onto a more addictive system. More on this and other headlines at the top of the hour."

Or maybe it's just me.

Thats Hilarious. :) I initially thought it was a spam from someone working for gateway computers. :D I like your interpretation better. :p

Well, it's not spam for Gateway computers. I recently took on the role of Admin for the forums, and I'm working on building up some awareness in the region.

As for a gateway game...

"Tonight were Discussing UNO. Were you aware that children who play UNO are more likely to move onto harder games like Munchkin and Magic the Gathering? And often from there they will become involved in... ROLE PLAYING GAMES!!!"

From UNO to Munchkin to D&D to D20 Modern to Paranoia to Call of Cthulu. UNO is the gateway to madness!
