I prefer the second one Mike.
“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.

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,

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 🙂

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…

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.26/10/2014 at 16:43 #1125126/10/2014 at 16:44 #11252JoeParticipant

“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.”28/10/2014 at 19:53 #11425intpParticipant

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

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.
– “The games we play.”
– “Conquering your imagination.”
– “Adventures in Miniature” (may sound too much like LAF…)
My blog: http://wargamingraft.wordpress.com29/10/2014 at 16:42 #11494
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).29/10/2014 at 16:48 #11495
The Wargames Website
“The Gaming Alternative!” or “The Gamer’s Alternative!”
EDIT: “Your Hobby Alternative!”
Or “Welcome! We’re a BS-free zone!”29/10/2014 at 16:51 #11496Angel BarracksModerator
