Name Change

I am now considering "City in Peril" for the name of my superhero boardgame. Good idea? Bad idea? Thoughts

I must confess to being somewhat ambivalent about either choice, but as of yet I don't have anything in any way better to suggest ;)

I thought HVV was in improvement over the original title - VBAM: Supers. ;)

For someone who enjoys superheroes as much as I do, I sure have trouble coming with good superhero names. It's a good thing I don't have to be superoriginal when naming my characters on Champions Online! :D

City in Peril came to me as I was in driving this past weekend. It struck me as an improvement over the current, which merely describes who's in the game.

VBAM: Supers is certainly somewhat... dry!

While "City in Peril" is selling the setting, does it push the superpowered theme enough? If not it may make a better subtitle?

So you could have:
Heroes, Villains, and Vigilantes
- City in Peril -

On the cover?

That could work. In essence, HVV would become the series name. So the intial release of the main game could be HVV: City in Peril. A future expansion when I ramp the power level up and increase the scope could be: HVV: World in Peril.

Have to ponder that for a bit, but I like that. :)
