Crazy Snowboard Poll

Hey, we wanted to see what you guys think we should call our game. Right now we are using 'Crazy Snowboard', but it has been suggested that it doesn't properly represent the game. The game is quite different to our other 'Crazy' novelty apps (like Crazy Lighter, Crazy Chainsaw, Crazy Disco) - it has 30 missions, 13 animated characters, 16 assignable tricks/grabs that you unlock as you earn points. What do you think?

(if you choose 'other', let us know what you'd suggest -- promo codes up for grabs to names we like!)

I don't think you should use "crazy" because I don't think it's good branding. From a marketing standpoint, you want to create differentiated products, and the reason for that is if one fails, then the others won't be negatively impacted. Sure, you can argue the other point "what if it succeeds", but I tend to counsel staying away from that since it can be limiting.

How about Snow King, Snowboard Master, King of the Slopes, Snow Surfer?

Slope riders? I got nothing. Still, anything would be better than Crazy Snowboard (besides isnowboard)

Extreme Snowboarding

Close to one of the poll options, but the "ing" at the end is better.

Hmm...even something like Crazy Boarders would work. Or you could go for a name like Sway or Edge or Skate and just call it "Snow". Or "Snowy Summit"...King of the Slopes? Hm. In any event I haven't seen a single rock or tree or crevass in the game so I think more interesting courses are in order if i'm going to purchase

Oh wow by the time i submitted that someone had already said King of the Slopes. Yeah my suggestion is just a one word game like Snow or Powder
