Hello!

I'm in the process of thinking of a simple and clever name for my board game that teaches kids about world geography and culture.

Any ideas? Thanks!

After much thought...

"Cultures from afar"... After I eliminated "Jet Setters", "Globetrotters" and "Where in the World is Carmen Santiago"... LOL

Cheers!

Questions:

Age range of players?
Initial target audience in terms of geography? (America, English speaking countries...etc.
Scope and granularity of topics and questions? (Samples questions and categories from the initial release will be a big help.)

Mondo mundi (please don't tell my high school Latin teacher--even if he is dead).

Age range: 8-13 years

Age range: 8-13 years old

Target audience: the entire world, taught to American (U.S.) children

Categories: Oceania, Africa, Americas, Europe, Asia, Spot It! (which is basically questions about illustrations of things from around the world (that are also on the board) that the players must spot)

lol no worries, but I think that name is a bit obscure for schoolchildren

Well, there's a game called Mondo already, and it may be difficult for younger folks to say those two words together. What about just Mundi?

I can imagine that the word, "Mundi!" (or whatever a single-word title might be for this game) can be incorporated into the game somehow. Like, a player who has the answer calls out the name of the game, and is called on first to attempt the answer to a question.

Um, of course it is. That's the country where they speak Hollandaise.

How about this?

"World Explorers"... I am SHOCKED that the BGG name has NOT been taken YET!

Just another name idea...

I love "Passport" in there

I love "Passport" in there somewhere.. "World Explorers" is also a great title to grab if nobody else has used it!

If the mechanics work, run with this..

Props to Left-off.

If you're not going for a game show experience--which demands a low syllable name, start playing with coordinate, geography terms.

"Over Where!"
