I think we need to be careful with the word "con" being so close to several established prisons in the area.

We could have everyone vote for their five favorite names and have the top five go to a final vote. I like the local tie in. Understand what the Indian words mean before you use them.

I think it's funny with the handle "Captain Yid" you are concerned over the naming of anything.



Hell, I laughed.

Hey Buddy, I worked hard to earn the title to lead my crew of the Znutar. Oh God, my first gamer game was a Steven Jackson game!
Yidcon!

My thoughts...

FoxCon
(simple, catchy, has meaning, sounds like slick military lingo or a megacorp name)

Gameapalooza
(It's not another ____Con name and even though it looks unpronouncable and awkward, the name has caught on with THIS group of gamers as meaning something special...not a bad thought for other gamers to have about a con)

Foxcon has a negative connotation as a Chinese factory. There is a couple Gameapalooza events around the country.

Also, he lives!

Yes...I live...but I don't have a life. (sigh)

Ok...to bad about the FoxCon name. But I understand.

I guess Gameapalooza could be a common name....but I really haven't heard of any well-known national "Gameapalooza" or a Gameapalooza in Wisconsin or neighboring states that local attendees would become confused about.

But...I will weigh in on the names you guys put up in the polls!

Look on the bright side. If we call it Gameapalooza, then many of us already have shirts printed. I know I have at least four different ones. I'd like to change my vote. I think Oby is on to something.

What about Foxycon? Wait, that is for the late night con at Seripmav's house.

Well yes and I'd attend anything named that. Though FoxCon does have an X in it so despite some factory in China that no one even knew about until last year that'd get my vote. And actually, it's name is Foxconn so it's not even the same.

Just one more thought to throw in the mix. How about simply the Polyhedral Convention? You guys have built a brand name for yourselves already. If you are looking to go big time with a convention, why not leverage your good name and market it? Polyhedral Undergound could then be the ongoing lifeblood community that sustains this event.

How well a game plays depends on those that sit at the table. If the PU was tied to a convention, then it could get out of control or have members that have been friends for a long time go elsewhere. Isn't this what happened to Superchicken with his group? Gameapaloza would separate that from the PU. .02 entered.
