Big Battle ... or Big Board?

I have had a suggestion that a better title for my BIG BATTLE PORTABLE WARGAME: MODERN rules would be BIG BOARD PORTABLE WARGAME: MODERN.

On reflection this actually makes more sense, and henceforth BBPW:M will stand for BIG BOARD PORTABLE WARGAME: MODERN.

  1. Of course, the description used for a large, heavy and supposedly portable laptop was actually a 'luggable'...

    A game entitled BIG BOARD LUGGABLE WARGAME: MODERN somehow doesn’t sound very attractive to me (mind you, BIG BOARD PORTABLE WARGAME does sound like a bit of a contradiction as well!) ... and is bound to beg the question 'Does my game look big like this?'

    All the best,

    I actually laughed out loud when I read your suggestion!

  4. Bob,

    Since portability is reduced or no longer the main issue, why not simply Big Board Wargame?

    But you may wish to avoid using BBW, which I believe is a way of describing 'fuller figured' ladies...

    AS a cricket fan, you might care for LBW - Large Board Wargame?

    Thanks for your suggestions, but I think that I will stick to the name BIG BOARD PORTABLE WARGAME: MODERN for the moment. The reason why will hopefully become clear over the next week or so.

    All the best,

    Bob

    That sounds more like a description of the size of the wargamers rather than the game board!

    All the best,

    Bob
