So fire away!

If you want to focus on the fun factor you could use names such as Joy Division or Strength Through Joy.

At my school it was called The Strategy Society. That was 13-18, all sorts of games. Generally speaking clubs were called Societies there. As for the Strategy part I guess the clubs founders (before my time) were into fairly long broad strategic games: they certainly left a few behind in the cupboard.meeple

Here's my suggestions:

Chitz
Hello God It's Me, Board Game Club
The Dicey Club
Random Spiel Club
Geek Games
Dicey McDicenheimer and the Strategic Nightmares
1-2-3 Board Game!
Over the Top Gaming Club
(this would work best for wargames centric clubs)
Are you Game?
Bored Games Club
The B-Gs
The Tossers
Whose Afraid of the Spiel de Jars?
(sorry if I spelled any of this wrong)
Game Over!

Beyond Monopoly!

It's a franchise, please feel free to use it. Just tag your local name onto it. For example, Beyond Monopoly! Singapore.

Most problems can be solved with either a stiff drink, a bowel movement, or a bullet.

The Bees Knees

Geeks Anonymous

Geeks with Meeps

A Tower O' Dice




or...

just "Game Club"

but then you would need rules like:
1) You don't talk about game club.
2) You do not talk about game club.
3) If someone says stop, goes broke, even if he's just faking it, the game is over.[12]
4)Only X guys to a game; only Y games at a time
5)They game without shoes or shaving.
6)The games go on as long as they have to.
7)If this is your first night at game club, you have to game.

"Time we'll spent gaming!"
"Borsh Gorging Greeks"
"School of Card Chocks"

Haha, some (or should I say, most?) of the names here will probably get the school's faculty looking askance. They most likely will love boring, functional names like - "Intellectual Games Society".

By the way, which school are you from? Nice to hear that Singapore's starting to breed more gamers

Try:

Kuhooloo's Thought Improvement Group goo
Games They Want You To Play
After School Fun and Games Club
The Illuminated Gamers Association
Paralysed Analysing Players Love-In
The Lee-T Spiellers Gathering

Haha. Have fun gaming!
