I have been working on a card game for quite some time and its gone through many drastic changes and now im considering renaming it too. It was named Eden 1157B then I changed it to New Eden after the last set of changes now in not sure I like that either. Please add you 2 cents.

Here is a synopsis

“Scientists have discovered a pristine earthlike planet around star 1157 and named it 1157B since it’s the second planet from the sun in that system. This causes a sensation and the press dubs it New Eden and many clamor to inhabit this paradise. No one government, corporation or religious group alone has the recourses to build the ship needed to reach it so they collaborate. Upon reaching the system there is an accident and everyone must evacuate to the much less hospitable planet 1157A. Still wanting to reach New Eden but unhappy and placing blame on the other groups for their misfortune each faction now works on their own to build an escape ship to claim New Eden for themselves.”

Player play these factions, harvest recourses from the planet, and build their ship all while trying to rule the current society using intimidation and force so they can control the means of production.

Which name do you like best?

Eden 1157B
New Eden
Paradise Express

Or if you have a better one let me know.

I was gonna try to come up with some names...

...but I really like Eden's Reach. This name is great because I think it encompasses the situation perfectly.

Eden or Bust would be an ironic title since they crash on the way :)

I really like your

I really like your backstory/synopsis. However, to me the phrase "...since it’s the second planet from the sun in that system." seems a bit forced, like someone explaining the punchline to a joke. This is how I might phrase it:

"Scientists have made a monumental discovery! The second satellite orbiting the distant star 1157 is a lush earth-like paradise ripe with resources. A weary humanity rejoices, a new beginning has been found... a New Eden. Hope ignites a new spirit of cooperation amongst the earth's nations and religions. A multinational expedition to colonize this paradise is launched. However, as they enter the star system tragedy strikes. A catastrophic accident forces them to evacuate just short of their destination to New Eden's desolate sister planet, 1157A. The old feelings of distrust and discord reemerge, the era of cooperation is over. Each faction now plans their own escape to claim New Eden for themselves. Will they ever escape or will they remain just outside...Eden's Reach"

Well, just a few thoughts. I hope you like it. :) If not, no biggie.
