Contest: Rename Our Game! (A.K.A. Help Us Not Get Sued)

Updated: Apr 25

Between printing mix-ups and our new relaunch plan, we can't seem to catch a break. After discovering existing trademarks for the name "Office Politics" (whoops, guess I should've checked on that sooner), we're preemptively doing some CYA and changing the name of the game.


The caveat: I'm running low on creative juices these days, as you'll see from the list below, so I need some help. Here are the ideas I've put down on paper so far, for better or for worse:

  • Undercut, Inc.

  • Corporate Warfare

  • Climb the Ladder

  • Office Treachery

  • Corporate Duplicity

  • Bigwig Scrimmage

  • Who’s the Influencer

  • Panjandrum

  • Corporate Ascent

  • CEO Material

Pretty plain to see that I need some help. Hence, an announcement for a Naming Contest!


The Objective: Come up with a quippy, catchy title for our satirical office politics-themed game. Main mechanics include bluffing and cooperation with the possibility of sabotage.


Deadline: Monday May 10, 2021 | 12PM CST. Winner will be announced by 8PM CST the same day, along with any honorable mentions.


Prize: Winner will receive card game "Coup", its accompanying expansion "Reformation" (this is a great game of secret identities and bluffing that provided inspiration for "Office Politics") and a free copy of the game you've helped to name upon successful funding on Kickstarter!



Also, bragging rights.


How to Enter: Submit your ideas to this form. You may enter more than once!


Looking forward to seeing your creative suggestions!
