Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.
I'm trying to come up with the perfect name for a gaming store. I've got a few that are ok, one or two that (I think) are pretty good and a whole bunch that truly suck. So... I'd like to hear your suggestions!

Some of what I've got on paper so far...

  • Reality Check (I kinda like this one)
  • GameZone
  • Endless Adventures
  • Campaign Headquarters
  • Game Central
  • Beardy McBeersteins Shack O' Smack (not my suggestion)
  • Heroic Adventure! (yeah yeah I know, but I love the name)
  • Little Wars
  • Strategic Advantage
  • Geektopia
  • Nerdvana
  • Armchair Generals

If it helps, think of this as a place for gamers of all types to hang out... miniatures, wargames, d&d, board games, card games, manga, anime, video games, etc... not just stuff for sale, but a place in-store to play, along with coffee, wi-fi and snacky food.

Books and graphic novels probably, but no comics though. That market is well covered (and too much hassle IMO.) Posted on Wednesday, March 15, 2006 8:48 PM General Interest | Back to top

I really like "Reality Check". How about....

* The Melting Cauldron (a play on melting pot which seems to fit your idea)
* Imagination Station
* Boredom Eulogy (okay, that's a stretch)
* Mind Gym / Brain Gym
* Altered States
* Dream Frontier(s)

Reality Check seems to be a popular one. I think a lawsuit might result over Imagination Station... isn't that a kids store or something? I love Diagon Alley, but again... lawsuit.

How about "The Gamers Inn"?

It isn't genre specific and gives the idea of a place you could just stop by real quick or some place you may hang out for a while.

* Jesus Saves, everyone else takes 5d6 damage

Seriously, I like Reality Check with the possibility of a subtitle or extended title, like Reality Check Games & Collectibles.

So far, these are my favorites...

Reality Check
What If?
Danger Room

(assume there would be some type of subtitle, like "games & hobbies" or "fun & games", etc...)

and of course, the special mention for overall coolest name that we'll never actually use goes to: Beardy McBeersteins Shack O' Smack
