Well I would like to propose that we shift gears a bit.. the naming
contest was moved up to help the art group figure out a visual theme..
and I think that might be backwards.. how about the art group comes up
with various visual themes.. that gets voted on and then we come up
with a name that meets the chosen theme. [It would actually make for a
new game ]
