So the "game" is to come up with a great word to put on a wall. I'm doing redecorating and have a game room with a dedicated table (billiards sized with green felt.) I'd like to mount lighted, marque letters on one wall. If you've seen the show Magicians, its like the physical house wall that says, TADA. You can see it here in the background: http://i1.wp.com/www.tor.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/103-cottage.jpg

I'm looking for something, OTHER than: Meeple, Board Games, Cardboard.
Anything that's 8 or less letters, is related like TADA is to magic, and can be in reference to either board or video games (or better both), and hopefully is neat sounding, without being too corny. :)

Any ideas?

Humm

"Roll & Move"

or

"Your Turn!"

edit: I guess they are not "one" word... or less that 8 letters :(

My vote...

PLAYER 1.

A bunch of references go into this one (Playah)!!! ;) The one (1) - because you are the BEST! And everyone wants to be "Player 1"! Because you are the "Player ONE" or "Player WON"! LOL Or "I'm riding solo" as in solitary gaming... "Player 1" goes FIRST! etc.

Plenty more references if you can just think of more...

Some good ideas there. I guess it doesn't have to be one word, but too many letters will run off the wall and blind anyone unfortunate enough to look at that wall!

Top:
Player 1
Lets Play
(Its) Your Turn

Also could do arrows, so it's a bit too long, but the konami code: up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A.

I am *not* putting WAKA WAKA on my wall. LOL. But thanks for playing. :)

Still open to a few more...

If you're doing arrows,

If you're doing arrows, shorter one can be the hadouken arrows with a fist at the end.

If not WAKA WAKA, you can do a cutout of pac_man and purple/dark blue ghosts.

Haha OKAY.

Winner is:

"Let's Play"

This works because its an invitation, a specific type of video applicable to both video and board games, and will work well when I record videos of my own.

I'll post some images once the painting, etc is all done.

Thanks everyone.

I'm still working on getting this together. Just before I hit the BUY button on the letters, I wanted to run a few other options that popped up in the last week, here for vetting.

LETS PLAY (current winner)

LEVEL UP
1 UP
QUEST
LUCKY
PLAY

Any of those strike a chord?

Some last minute suggestions

These are a ton of gaming terms I thought might be good for a game room.

My top 5:
ARCADE
LEVEL 1
LOADING...
HIGH SCORE
+1 XP

Others:

GAME OVER
NEW GAME
START
IT'S-A ME
NOM NOM
FOR THE WIN
GAME ROOM (I know, generic)
CHECKMATE
ALL IN
BOSS FIGHT
GAMEPLAY
YOUR TURN
WILD CARD
VERSUS
MULTIPLAYER

(The name of an old favorite game maybe?)

Hopefully this will give you an idea or spark a new idea!

I like LEVEL UP because it

I like LEVEL UP because it gives the sense that once you walk into the game room, you're on another level/dimension and you gain some sort of ability and can do something different than normal day to day life. That ability would be to be able to kick back and play games.

"Let's LEVEL UP guys!"

My two (2) favorites are...

1. YOUR TURN
2. LEVEL UP

Personally I don't like "LET'S PLAY" (Sounds a bit too childish IMO).
