Make it a poll, you'll get the most accurate opinions that way.

Would suggest adding:
'Railroad' and 'Economic'
to the list.

And if a survey is done, make it so multiple topics can be chosen, not just one topic.

OK, seem to have put up a survey about the same time my last post went up.

Would also suggest that winning topics can be combined into one theme. Remember that even from a joke topic, they did make a game about 'Nato, Nukes, and Nazis'.

We are developping a card game with different clans that have a humorous but strategic aspect. The clans have no special powers and are strictly meant for character card design.

Economic is a good theme but would not fit for the project.

Thanks!

None of those themes excite me because they're all cliche.

Good point,

They are meant to be as we want to make a reference to common board gaming universes. Those themes are not meant to be part of the mechanic of the game but more for the artwork itself.

Though I do like the horror genre, I dislike zombies.
I never found them frightening whatsoever, only dull. I can't understand the fuzz about zombies in the last years.

None of these appeal because you're pasting them on rather than having your setting inform the mechanics.

I suspect I'm not your target market though.

You are right in a way because the game itself does not rely on the theme. However, the graphic aspect of the game is important as it is meant to be a humorous and clean look on different gaming universes blended into a simple card laying mechanic.

Not liking themes in games is one thing, but liking themed artwork is much different.

This. Horror can be cool, but zombies are dull and overused. (There are exceptions to everything, though.)

I'd also distinguish between fantasy (potentially cool) and D&D (dull and cliched).

He missed Italian Renascence. (I don't know, but I think he was being sarcastic.)

Ditto. I think the two should be separate in the pool. Horror would be my third selection (after Sci-Fi and Fantasy), but I left it out because of the association with zombies.

The general message we get is that people are really tired of the Zombie theme even if you have an humorous take on the subject.

For a reason I am unsure of, there is no way for me to modify the poll though.

Thanks!
