There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

Sounds fun. They could have an indexed list of all the titles.

Or, I wonder if there's any way to have the title be generated in the same way the rules are generated. Maybe for each module have an adjective listed for if goes first, a noun for if it goes last, or something like that...

This is part of the world book. When you flip the pages to make the set of rules it says over on one side "The world of [adjective] [noun] [something]" or something like that.

It would be fun though for people to come up with their own titles, maybe drawing inspiration from other games that combination is similar to.

I'll probably end up doing this with my favorite games. The names will likely just reference something funny or otherwise memorable that happened during the game just to ask if someone(s) wants to play it in particular.

I already do this for Dominion combinations. The names often read like titles of fairy tales ("The Baron's Breakfast", "The Island of Rats", "The Thrifty Squire", etc.). Helps me to remember the flavor of that particular combo.

Cool, could you publish the list to BGG? Would be fun to have the title going in to a particular combination...

167- Legends of the Silk Road
164- Warriors of the Silk Road
162- The Silk Road Race
165- The Mysterious Silk Road
169- Sponsors of the Silk Road
168- Fruits of the Silk Road
163- Adventures of the Silk Road

16X = Silk Road for us

61X and all others- unnamed and will not have a name anywhere similar to silk road.

My wife and I moved recently. As soon as I figure out which of my unpacked boxes the list is in, I just might do that.

I think this is a good start. The flavor module (TOP 3) can just be appended to a name.
1: Shipment
2: Race
3: Adventures of...
4: Warriors of...
5: The Mysterious
6: Trails of...
7: Legends of...
8: Fruits of...
9: Sponsors of...

Now you just need 71 more names to cover the other combinations for the VP and economy modules.
