Games should be fun to play with everyone

Hello!

I guess I'm a bit of a noob to this site. I have friends who work for game companies though so I have been around gaming forever.

So I created this really cool board game, but I don't have a title for it. Any suggestions? Oh yeah, its about islanders defending their home from invading conquistadors. A lot of the inspiration is drawn from the song "downpressor man" by peter tosh.

Thanks in advance!

Maybe you can get Mel Gibson to let you use 'Apocalypso'?

This sounds like a co-op game. Is it? Or does another player get to play the conquistadors?

How about 'The Day They Came'?
'Decide and Conquer'?
'Paradise End'?
'Spears and Swords'?
'Iron and Bone'?
With permission from A.C. Clark, 'Childhood's End'?

"Conquest of Paradise" springs to mind, but it is taken. (really taken)

"Conquest of the Caribbean"
"Subjugate Them All" -- Columbus' conclusion about what to do with the Indians.
"Conquest of Espanola" (may be too historically specific though)
"Struggle of the Taino", "Destruction of the Taino"
"Guacanagari" -- Taino leader who allied with Columbus


My favorite: "Anacaona" -- The name of a female leader of the Taino executed by the Spanish for resisting them.

Seems simple enough;

Resist the Downpressor
Peter Resists the Downpressor
Pedro the Downpressor

The title then becomes an easter egg.

If its a war game;

Red Wave from the East
Conquistadors: Wrath of Gods
The Return of the Deities

After reading your brief description these were the three titles that sprung to mind:

Native Land

White Demons.

Guanahani (this is the what the natives called the island that Christopher Columbus first landed on)

Hello! Thanks for the suggestions. There are a couple I am going to consider. The game is a player versus player or teams of players versus teams of other players. One player or group of players takes on the role of conquistadors and the other player or group of players takes on the role of the islanders. Thanks again for the ideas, I will definitely give them some thought.
