Game board name ideas

Postby Kigagal В» 24.09.2019

.

I usually have the NAME before any ideas about the design It's like: "Oh wouldn't it be cool is there was a game called 'X'? BGG will actually tell you if a board game with the name exists.

Then it's up to you to sufficiently "distinguish" yourself from the other games Game Name idea: Maybe you like it, or maybe it sends you down another road, reading your description seems like it has to do with various "Factions". It's kind of a "play on words" of "Force of Nature" Meaning that nature is wild an unstoppable. So that kind of echoes in "Force of Faction", the might, the magic, the power, etc Whatever a faction may have as tools to combat their opponent I understand the question you are asking but to truly give you advice, people need to know what your game is about.

Please inform us on it and I'm sure people will answer. Due to the strong fantasy theme, the first thing that popped into my head for your game was "The Battle of Five Armies - The Card Game" but that won't do, as that would be The Lord of the Rings Also, your game has 4 factions You might look up words in other languages than mean things you might want to mix into such a name.

Hebrew transliteration for "to come near, approach" Kaw-rab , mixed with the Latvian transliteration for death nave. I wish you all the best in coming up with a good name Yeah that is what someone said to be before, come up with the country or place the battle is set in. My last game Minimon Fusionz even though i had to come up with the place it wasn't too hard and i called it Miniunovus.

Hmm for me as I was making a power rangers inspired game I wanted something to do with colors and I wanted it to sound cool. Eventually I decided the first part of the name which was Spectrum and finally settled on Force as the second part. As for your game I guess try and think of your theme and what would fit the theme of your game and most importantly check if the title hasn't already been used.

For me, the name of the game is only conceived of once I think about submitting it to someone else to review. Sometimes, the game's name comes naturally out of the theme that I've selected, and other times, it takes a two hour brainstorming session to come up with anything don't worry - that's what genetics class is for For me, the name of the game is only conceived of once I think about submitting it to someone else to review So first it's a "dungeon" with "monsters".

But in the game, you try to "keep the monsters" by winning the most battles! And then of course I Google and BGG the name to see if anyone has already picked up the name of the game When I have a good name - it gets me excited about the design, knowing that I am "designing" game 'X' I'd like my game names to have some meaning to the game, so it's either super obvious, or I'm hunting down a conce0pt or a theme and then going to a thesaurus to find unique, but easy to spell names that are similar to the theme of my game.

Like for example, my game "Conquest at Kismet". I chose the name "kismet" because it meant "fate". I set the game in the Raccroc Galaxy because Raccroc means "luck", which is a big mechanic in my game. My advice would be to use a name that's easy to pronounce and spell. I'm all for unique words, but don't drown it in apostrophes and consonants. You ought to be able to come up with several options, particularly when combined with your fantastical names and such.

I was actually going to say thesaurus as well, haha. I like to think of what my game conveys or what the main mechanic is and try and find alternative descriptive words for it. I looked up a list of words that were created by sci-fi authors and worked in some of those to create my company "Telekinetic Labs". At the end, I agree with everyone saying go with a word that describes your theme. One of my favorite names for a game is Scythe - which gives you not only the image of a worker reaping wheat, but also the proletariat symbols of the U.

Plenty of options. Just try to ask yourself as much as questions possible. Then answer them. Perhaps you find new words that you didn't think of yet. And you can combine them. Wow this is old, didn't even know i was the one who started it, I already have my name but this is still good for people who needs some tips coming up with a name for their own game.

That should help you get started! So here comes what I thought of while reading that thread: "Force of Faction" It's kind of a "play on words" of "Force of Nature" What is your game about?

Its in new game ideas under. Names are important. You might try naming the fantasy world that the game is set in Example: Kawrabnave - Kaw-rab-nave "To approach death Yeah that is what someone. Pretty hard coming up with fictional places My last game Minimon Fusionz even though i had to come up with the place it wasn't too hard and i called it Miniunovus. Adam Leamey. Hmm for me as I was making a. As some random suggestions Nations at war, Domination That' all i have for now hope it helps.

On opposing viewpoints. Another example. Oh, come ON! Willem Verheij. Call it the third best game. Call it the third best game ever.

Got to stay humble after all. What are your creatures called? Just name the game after what your creatures are called.

Thesaurus and Theme. I looked up a list of words that were created by sci-fi authors and worked in some of those to create my company "Telekinetic Labs" At the end, I agree with everyone saying go with a word that describes your theme. Name the game after An important character?

Perhaps including a key word of the quest? A mechanic? The goal of the game? The problem that your characters face? Simple, catchy and describes the game. Wow this is old, didn't even.
