Let's Name the Spiel Nation!


By otscotty - Posted on 25 August 2007

Ok, so Jerry Garcia has his 'Dead Heads'. Jimmy Buffet has his 'Parrot Heads', and Jim Rome has his 'Clones'. We need to come up with a similar name for all the devoted fans of the Spiel. I suppose 'Spiel Heads' would be too easy. Perhaps we could use 'Meeple Heads'. What do you guys think? By the way, let me go ahead and register my vote against 'Goober Heads'. Someone was bound to suggest it. So, get creative. List your suggestions below.

Spielers?

Meeple Peeps? Or mush them together... Meeps?

"Meeps" is an excellent suggestions. It is certainly more catchy than "Spielunkers".

A pod of 'casters and a cast of players ? If the collective noun for iPods is a "play of Pods" then we will have a circular argument a pod of cast of play of pods I'm not sure that the spacetime continuum could support such an infinite loop and we'd end up in an endless game of DieMacher a la groundhog day. ------------------------------------------------- We don't stop playing games when we get old...... We get old when we stop playing games

Zoo whores! I can already see the next t-shirt design I am going to make...

Not sure we have quite enough listeners yet to merit a Horde, either.
