Apart from servicing a very bad and (IMHO) illogical pun, TOO MUSH doesn't make any sense and is gramatically incorrect.

Go with MUSH!MUSH! before it's TOO LATE.

thumbsdown That's too bad.

Like the other poster said, the new name doesn't make much sense. Can someone explain how "too" is supposed to work in that name?

And can anybody explain me why "Too mush" is "more international" than "Snow Tails"?

And the people below you! I'm still probably going to get the game once it's released, but that name blows!

According to what Asmodee said, more than 800 proposals. Also on french forum (tric trac) this name does not get much support.

Pretty much my thoughts exactly. I know what "mush" means, but what the crap does "Too Mush" mean? Is it like, too much mushing? Are they trying to say that the game sucks or something?

Even though it's just a title and has no effect on the game, this is almost enough to make me track down an original Snow Tails.

Maybe it's supposed to be "To Mush" and someone accidentally added an extra "o" in the title?

Or maybe the original memo said "The new title of the game has been changed from 'Snow Tails' to 'Mush'", and someone screwed up the press release by adding an "o" and putting "too" in the title.

Or maybe it's just the crappiest name of a game of all time.

Well unless the graphics boys have been chugging Absinthe as well, it's all horribly true;

Fraser, Gordon, can't you slap them down with some editorial control, or maybe just some common sense?

The pix on the Tric Trac news is only a photoshop thing to illustrate it made by the french webmasters. Nothing official I assume

One more vote for "poor renaming choice" (and a surprised stare since it was a contest!).

"Mush" would be a great name for the game. "Too Mush" is just a bad attempt at being punny.



But, as long as they don't add a catapult I'll probably still buy it as soon as it becomes widely available...

It seems to have some marketing value, considering the number of people who want a copy now...
