I need help coming up with a name for an upcoming CPC set. The set will be based around horror film villains... J5 still hasn’t gotten around to me to start designing the inlays yet but the current plan is a somewhat “classy” inlay design with subtle nods to the various villains (the chips themselves are as well).

The names I am currently stuck on are The Asylum, Blood Bank or Final Cut but as I am leaning towards “subtle” none of them feel right.

Im looking for the same “AH HA, finished with that!!” feeling I had when the words Pillage & Plunder popped into my head. Please throw out your ideas, if anyone hits the nail on the head you’ll be getting a full sample set of both the chips (seven) and all the dealer buttons (I feel like there are going to be fifteen :D ). If that doesn’t happen, anyone who’s idea ultimately steers me in the right direction will get at least a sample set of the chips.

Im finally happy with all of the chips themselves but not having a name jump out at me is giving me a constant headache. Ideally it would be something that one may not recognize as being a reference to the genre but which is clear as day once pointed out but I’m not against an “in your face” name if it feels right. For added fun, it’s likely going to be CSQ but I do like both A and B molds and would happily switch over if the name fits (that’s why Asylum and Blood Bank are still in the running).

Can you tell us who the villains are?

Going to think about this one @Ronoh but so far the only one that truly jumps out at me is @arch3r "Drawing Dead" really has an awesome ring to it and keeps it tied to the poker theme! Possibly add "Asylum" at the bottom.. hmm

But when you said slap you in the face yes! That one did that for me when thinking about the Theme.

Just realized Arch3r beat me to Scare Card.

Maybe there's something in the way of "Bad Beat" or "Making a Killing"
