Hi everyone!

I'm asking your opinion on title of my new board game.
As a non-native speaker, it is really tough for me to come up with a decent title soblue

My game is an extremely tactical, dueling cities game!
Below is a short description!
------------------------------------
Fill your territory with a powerful army or cultural wonders to reign supreme on the mainland continent.
Carefully plan your strategy to take down your opponent.
Never let your guard down until, at last, you are victorious in this highly interactive game
------------------------------------











1. Mainland - currently most voted title on board gaming facebook groups, but there already is a board game named 'Mainland'

2. Risepolis - second most voted title

3. Mainland Ambition

4. Warring Cities

5. Middle Land

6. Any other ideas??

How about 'VieScraper'...?
Just off the top of my head. To Vie for something is to strive for superiority or victory. The rest plays off the word SkySCraper (i.e. tall building).

Maybe don't translate it?

By the magic of Google combined with my ignorance of Korean.... Bonto seems to be Korean for Mainland and sounds great to my monolingual ear.

Just kidding. I agree with the person who said Dueling Cities. that title is unique and gives me an idea of the gameplay, while the other ones you suggested do not. I also agree that it may work to keep the title completely in Korean, if it's a short word, as that is both unique and more memorable than something generic in English.

Since the description describes cultural wonders or armies, Culture War came to mind. Or maybe Culture Wars.


If you like Culture War but want to give both words equal weight, you could add something that signifies conflict, like Culture> <War

Culture Clash, Rise to Power, Bonto is great especially if it fits the artwork theme.
