    I am looking for some sort of slogan/strap line to go with TWW.

    What do people think of the below?

    or?

    I prefer the second one Mike.

     

    This,

    “IT’S OUR HOBBY, THERE’S ONLY ONE LIKE IT, THIS ONE CAN BE YOURS TOO.”

     

    Or this one with tongue in check  “YES I KNOW WHERE THE SHOWER IS, I CHOOSE NOT TO USE IT”. (but I am an ex submariner just getting used to having excess water).

     

    Or PERUSE, PLAN, PREPARE, PAINT, PLAY.

    How sad of me 3 in 3 minutes.

    “IT’S OUR HOBBY, THERE’S ONLY ONE LIKE IT, THIS ONE CAN BE YOURS TOO.”

    Does not remind me of the actual line/motto though, it is too far changed.
    Not similar enough.
    Sorry.

    PERUSE, PLAN, PREPARE, PAINT, PLAY.

    hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm interesting…

    H’mmmyes, but “many hobbies like it, this is ours” could equally well be said about kayaking, batik, or Morris dancing.

    I have googled “How to write a good strap line”, and now have several tens of seconds of education and experience in practical advertising. A brainstorming session at which all expense or effort was spared came up with the following efforts at straplines:

    The Wargames Website: It’s a website about wargames.

    The Wargames Website: We’re all about wargaming.

    The Wargames Website: Where Wargamers Wend their Way to Wibble.

    Any of these ideas are available to you for an exceedingly modest licence fee.

    All the best,

    John.

    It needs to be short, for instance:

    My hobby, my world

    A world of wargaming

    No one will remember anything longer than six words – and six is pushing it 🙂

    Currently, of course, it’s:

    For strapping men and women 🙂

    Big fun with little men? No, maybe not…

    Serious fun with toy soldiers.

    You might wish to avoid references to “I” and “We.” They suggest egotism more commonly associated with rival sites with similar content. Most marketing folks suggest focusing on the product, the website.

    John’s suggestions shortened to “A World of Wargaming” fits an effective marketing strategy. You could get clever, illiterate and try to work in “A Wide World of Wargaming.”

    I like “A World of Wargaming” – it’s positive and doesn’t imply a need to legitimize, as “This is our hobby” may do. Also, it makes clear that this site indeed is about wargaming and not some of the antics other sites cater for…

    What about
    World of Gaming rather than wargaming, we do have console games, ccgs and boardgames too.

    The site is about wargaming primarily with the cross pollination that happens as we as gamers tend to dip our toes in many gaming pools. I wouldn’t necessarily come here as my first choice for dual weapon pairing suggestions in Dark Souls 2 but I’d come here for certain if I was hunting up opines on a particular brand of primer or info on a mini out of production nigh twenty years or so. I do agree that ‘I’ and ‘we’ have an exclusionary air to them. I want TWW to be at the forefront of the charge to grow the hobby and make any and all from every corner of the world, age group, yadda, yadda, etc. etc feel welcome and that they have support here if they’re starting in the hobby.

    Guess I’m trying to mellow as I’m surely not as quick with a dissenting opinion on a sets of rules that give me hives. I figure if you’re enjoying yourself, painting miniatures, and slinging dice at the table you’re doing it right.

    Gaming matters.

    Because it does and becuase TTW is about matters related to gaming.

    “Putting Warfare In Its Place” is one I’ve used in reference to the hobby, but it’s a little tendentious.

    The motto of the New York Law School is “New York’s Law School.” Which is about as lame as it gets.

    Hmm. This is an interesting one. Maybe… Hmm… “Fighting Friendly.” Or to further elaborate on James’ entry above, “Fighting Hard, Playing Nice.”

    What about…

    ‘It’s gaming, but not as we know it’

    or

    ‘It’s all about gaming’

    Or mayne just…

    ‘of wargamers, by wargamers, for wargamers’

    or if you want to broaden the appeal

    ‘of gamers, by gamers, for gamers’

    Not sure I should join in really as it might be considered a fix if I win.

    Gamers Unite
    or
    All About the Games
    or
    Make Games Not War
    or
    Don’t be mean to each other and try to behave like grown ups but lets face it mostly we will fail at that and get into arguments about rules and the like.

    I like ‘Gaming Matters’ and ‘Make Games Not War’ – the last one also stresses the ‘making’, which is such an important part of our hobby.

    What about

    – “The games we play.”

    – “Conquering your imagination.”

    – “Adventures in Miniature” (may sound too much like LAF…)

    The Wargames Website

    “Because Games Matter!”

     

    Because they do matter to all of us. That’s why we play ’em.

    Plus, it reinforces the idea of games mattering more than, say, politics, rules lawyering or nazis.

     

    (Also, it sounds a bit like SIZE MATTERS!, which I’ve always liked).

    Or, or…

    The Wargames Website

    “The Gaming Alternative!” or “The Gamer’s Alternative!”

    EDIT: “Your Hobby Alternative!”

     

    Or “Welcome! We’re a BS-free zone!”
