The Library Game Lab had its first outing last week. We had a collection of board games and video games. At first, people were drawn to the video games - DDR, GH, and Wii. As the evening went on, people moved to the board games, so DDR and GH sat there quietly unused as people played Ubongo, Ingenious, Tumblin' Dice, and Liar's Dice. More information at http://gamelab.syr.edu

The point of this post is to get some clever ideas...

I recently played Portal and was really taken with its setting, and I'm inspired. I want to add a layer of theme to my Library Game Lab outings. We already have matching labcoats, and at the end of the night, one of the participants asked how they had done in our experiments.

So, I'd like to take it further in that direction, calling people "Test Subjects" and making the whole setting that of an experimental controlled setting where subjects will engage in pleasurable pasttimes.

What I'm looking for are clever taglines to have on posters and the like around the Game Lab space, things like:

"We have Play down to a Science"
"Your Pleasure is our Measure"
"Sometimes you get Cake." (inside joke for Portal players)
"Bored? Not on our watch."

So, I'm looking for similar things - tongue-in-cheek, a little darkly humorous, satirical slogans that a corporate-funded game lab space might have created in the 1970's.

Ideas? Thoughts?

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

Boardgame tag lines, eh?

"Come, Sit, Play"

"Boardgames: Where your mind meets the table." (hehe, sorry had to laugh at myself on that one)

"We only need 1 brain to complete our experiment..."

"Needed: 1 brain, criminal or otherwise."

This was a triumph. I'm making a note here: "Huge Success".
It's hard to overstate my satisfaction.

"Building the future one person at a time."
"Advanced brain testing subjects wanted - inquire within"

"Out of the Gaming Stores and into the Streets!"
On a similar note: "Out of our Parents' Basements and into the Streets!"

"Measure for Measure, and Wood for Sheep."

"Our humility knows no bounds."

"Playing outside the lines since _____" (insert date into blank.

"Busting the Bell Curve through innovative play."

"MC Squared and the Gaming Posse."

That's all I got on short notice. Maybe tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow something better will come.
