Okay, I've finished the version 1.4 rules to my cannibalism game, and it's ready to playtest after some componant making. It's leaning more toward a "regular cannibalism" game, though, rather than auto-cannibalism (where people eat themselves). People try to eat each other, and only eat themselves when they're really hungery, or the other players have better weapons than they do. Yeah, it was strange to write, too, believe me.

What I'm looking for is a good name for this, and I can't seem to come up with any. Rather than struggle, I thought I'd get some ideas from the crew here.

Basically, players are stranded on a tropical island, and must hunt a diminishing supply of wildlife and collect or build the necessities of life. But the animals don't last long, and then the players begin to look mighty tasty to one another... and then to themselves...

Any name ideas?

How to Serve Your Fellow Man

(Hey, old jokes are the best jokes, right? Right? Aw c'mon, right?)

Okay, if you didn't like that one, how about: Bite Me? Or...

Long Pig is an old euphemism, because people taste like pork. (Um, so I've heard... I mean, I read about it in, um, some old book. Yeah, that's where I heard it!)

Or how about: Friends for Dinner

Eating Disorderly
(No WAY is a US publisher putting a game with this name on the shelves!)

Fighting Over Fatso
(This game is so far from PC already, nobody will notice the slur on the metabolically challenged!)

TLC: Tastes Like Chicken
(I'm sure the irony is not lost on the savvy bunch that is BGDF.)

A Fistful Of Fingers
(And when the expansion comes out? "For A Few Fingers More" baby!)

[For anyone left scratching their head on that last one... Those are modified versions of Clint Eastwood's "spaghetti western" movie titles "A Fistful Of Dollars" and "For A Few Dollars More" [Oops! My original post had slightly inaccurate titles.]]

First a big LOL to Rick and Nando for some great titles.

@Hedge: Is it tongue-in-cheek thematically (sorry for the bad pun)? Or will it be presented as a serious survival challenge where the players' only option is a rather bad-but-necessary one?

My suggestion: Good (Tasting) Neighbors

A quick apology to one of our newer BGDF members -- GoodNeighbor -- who has an ice breaker name by nearly that name!

Here are my few quick attempts:

Last Supper (sorry, I had too...)

Eat Soma or Soma Eaters
(soma - alternative name for the body of a human being. though you might be able to get a good play on the word Soma - sort of sounds slang for "some of". I ate soma this and soma that....)

Wow, these are some great ideas! And Brykovian, no, this isn't any sort of serious survival challenge. Useful items include a hammock and a shrunken head, among others. Challenging decisions include deciding your hungry enough to try to hunt sharks and trwls river piranha, failure for which costs you the limb of your choice. And if you might lose your right leg to a hungry carnivore, wouldn't you be better off if that carnivore was you?

In my best Barbara Streisand imitation:

People... People who eat people...
...are the hungriest people...
...in the world...

All right, I know that wasn't helpful. I'll go away now.

Hmmm I will jump on the band wagon..

How about: It was nice eating you.

Come to think of it, you could change says that contain words like greet or meet and replace them with the word eat for a clever title.

With appropriately themed castaways, Celebrity Roast.

And don't overlook the value of substituting 'meat' for meet, as well as the already mentioned 'eat'.

Another idea for you to digest

Given that the players seem to have the choice of eating animals, others, or themselves, how about "A Question of Taste"?
