Yesterday the wife and I bought a allotment garden house, since we needed some more room than just our appartment. So the houses are normally named something, most of it rather nonsens, but we have decided to go for a cool name (I will make a voting geeklist afterwards if there is enough suggestions(although the wife will have final saying)). So fire in your suggestions here, and after some time I will move them to the geeklist (pressed on time at the moment, are on the way out there in 10 min)

Anyways what we have come to think of so far is:

- Agricola
- Small World
- Kingsburg
- (Catan)

But it could also be components or gaming terms, so just fire away.

Can you please share a picture of it, or at least a picture of what they look like in general? I'm not exactly sure what an allotment garden house is.

EDIT to substantiate:
Borg is a Danish word for "castle".

Thank you for all the replies, so just a short explanation on what a Danish allotment garden is:

A piece of land is rented at the local county and the divided into smaller lots which you rent. Our lot is roughly 450sqm (4850 sq ft) which is covered mostly in grass but has some fruit bushes and trees. On the small patch of land there is a "house" rughly 30sqm (320 sq ft). The idea is to give people in apartments the possibility to have a garden and grow stuff there,

We have only payed money for the house and tools that followed with the house, so it is very cheap compared to what you get (we payed some 33.000 DKK or roughly 6000$) which is alot of games, I know

The house is one big room and there is a toilet in a adjecent shed, which solves some trouble, however there is no electricity at the moment, but we are working on that the one big room leaves alot of space for bigger boardgames, as soon as we are ready for that, so alot of positives there.

Just found some pictures of the place taken two days ago, we have just emptied the shed, and found all sorts of crap, which we luckily disposed of yesterday.

I am standing with the back turned on the right side of the house in the black jacket, my dad in law is fixing our water supply, so we could actually use the toilet

Very cool! Well, then, name it after one of my favorite games: Dicke Kartoffeln

Or, I see that Colosseum is one of your favorites. You could name it The Colosseum.
