    • A More Perfect Union: The US Political Historical Simulator
    • A More Perfect Union: The Game of American Political History
    • A More Perfect Union (no subtitle)
    • Project America (which was the codename for this game when I felt uncomfortable sharing the name of the game publicly)
    • Other (mention below)

I like the idea of a subtitle.  If I haven’t heard of the game, I don’t know what “a more perfect union” means.  
 

Is it a civil war game?  An acquisitions and mergers business game?  A relationship counseling simulator?  ;c)

Of the options you’ve offered here, I like the one that tells me exactly what the game is and what makes it unique.  It’s an American politics simulator, 1770s to present.

I don't agree with the idea that it's a simulator. To me, it means that you're just running through history and watching. It's not a simulator, it's a game. I think that could turn some people off. I'm not super warm about any of the subtitles. My vote would be no subtitles if it was those versus having none. I'm not sure we need a subtitle or if it is best to just have "A More Perfect Union" followed by a description. Most people read short, paragraph or less descriptions.

I like it. 

Options 2 and 4 seem the best for me personally. You don't want the title to be to revealing or long, if that makes sense. The first title is too long. 

If I was in a more creative mood I'd come up with something catchy, and an attention giver.

Hmmm...

maybe,

A More Perfect Union: The Genesis and Unfolding of American Politics.

Just different definitions of simulator.  I mean in the sense of "SimCity" or "The Sims" -- open ended games where you can play your way instead of linear objective-to-objective gameplay.  In that sense, games like Crusader Kings or Stellaris are simulators too, though some might call them strategy games instead.

I like project America because it makes it sound statistical and data driven which is probably the niche this game appeals to most besides history nerds and map simulator game fans. 

Actually, Project America might grab my attention more than A More Perfect Union would (which in my head feels like a Civil War battleground game).  Maybe "Project America: A More Perfect Union"?

And then AMPU 2 will be "Project America: Make Unions Perfecter Again"

;c)

I still prefer A More Perfect Union over Project America. Project America just sounds a little childish/amateur for the actual scope of the game. 

I agree with you. I veto the combination of the two. The subtitle should let the players know what the game is about, unless it's a sequel.

  • A More Perfect Union: The Game of Faction, Party, and Politics from Revolution to the Future.
    Too lengthy
     
  • A More Perfect Union: A Game of Politics, 1772-Present
    3rd best title
     
  • A More Perfect Union: The US Political Historical Simulator
    By far the best title, because it explains what's in it.
  • A More Perfect Union: The Game of American Political History
    2nd best title
     
  • A More Perfect Union (no subtitle)
    No subtitle is bad imo
     
  • Project America (which was the codename for this game when I felt uncomfortable sharing the name of the game publicly) Nice but not really a description

A More Perfect Union: The US Political Historical Simulator

A More Perfect Union: The Game of American Political History

These ones stuck out the me the most. I would maybe reword the first one a bit as it doesn't really flow, but it has potential. The second is better structured right now but I like the simulator part of the title from the first.

 

Maybe:   A More Perfect Union: The American Political History Simulator
