Crowd Sourcing

June 28th, 2010 by skippy

So I have this little project I have been working on for a while, and I have reached a snag.

The title.

I just cannot think of a catchy enough title for this damned project. And this is where my readers come in.

I want people to suggest titles. If anyone comes up with one that I like, I will give them a prize (Probably a mug or a t-shirt)

The project is a board game. The theme of the game is zombie survival. Specifically to get as many of your own team of survivors to safety as possible. There aren’t enough safe places, or escape routes to go around so the players will wind up fighting over them.

The working title was “Escape Zombie Game”.

Anybody have any suggestions?

    the first thing that came to mind was “Sorry… you got zombied,” then “Survivor, zombie edition.” Of course, those will get you sued.

    Captain Scurvy reply on June 28th, 2010 5:44 pm:

    just The Quick and The Dead would even be good.


  13. Kal Says:

    “Be Faster”, as in “I don’t have to be faster than the (insert threat here), I only have to be faster than you”, as well as being good advice in the event of a zombie apocalypse anyway. It might even make a good tagline for the title.

    “Death before Dishonour?”, given that it’s the choice.

    If he doesn’t use it, I am going to be forced to make a game/write a book just to use that title. You can have 50% of the profits.


    Bryan reply on June 29th, 2010 6:35 pm:

    Damn. I was gonna say Natural Selection, but this is much better.

    This was actually written for Soylent Green: the musical, but it seemed appropriate for this discussion.

    Bast me again with the Pinot Noir,
    You can have my thigh to go.
