I'm tired of reading Heighway-related threads and seeing dozens of Fish Tales links. People with more skin in the game than I should suggest some alternatives to FT. Once we have some suggestions I'll update the thread with a poll.

#2 4 years ago

FuTh, FTMC, FTHP...

#4 4 years ago

FullT is definitely way better than using FT again.

#5 4 years ago

FullT sounds good...

#6 4 years ago

Ft screw Fish tales!

#7 4 years ago

David, you and I don't see eye to eye on this one. I love my FT. I agree that it is not Williams best game.

#8 4 years ago

I second "FullT"

You know I am about as serious on anything as a box of crayons : )

FullT works

Good thing too. I had a mind to invite you over, tell you only the FT worked. Then make you play it all night while getting you slowly drunk on fine Irish Whiskey. All while my wife feeds you Thai food.

Best regards,

Tom

Well my names on it and I prefixed all the part numbers with
FTHR

I don't dig abbreviations that are mixed case. FullT looks weird. Are there any other games we do that for? Rather just hold down shift and write FTHR and be done.

But maybe FullT is easier to read plainly?

This should be a done deal. FTHR

FULTHROTTL

We could go the other way and just force FishTales to be abbreviated like this:

><>T

#28 4 years ago

I don't like the name of the title anyway
I always expect this when reading "Full Throttle"

Not this?

Definitely the first thing I thought of! Actually, I missed the whole "No Fear" brand thing and thought the game was actually based on just the energy drink line until very recently.

No, but this was second

I have a can of this in my fridge that I got from the U.S. while at Expo 2 years ago

I will crack it open when the first game comes off the production line

Whether or not I drink it after 2 years is another matter ...

Too late, you're now required to post a video of you cracking it open and chugging it! This will be your "Jack cartwheels" moment.

#33 4 years ago

Don't worry, the citrus flavor keeps it fresh! Actually, Full Throttle is probably the most soda-like/best tasting of the "true" energy drink lines.

The real question is whether or not you can beat your previous best score after chugging it!

why would you shorten Fish tales or Full throttle with FT

everyone thinks FT is For Trade.....

Best game ever!

How about something like FTh or F-Th? It's better than FTH or FLTH, etc, because those look like abbreviations for 3 or 4 words, not two. The lowercase "h" differentiates it better. Just my opinion

Not that I matter, but I don't like this. I didn't want to look like an idiot (too late) so I went to the Heighway website to investigate what the HR stood for. Only now to I realize(?) that it is an abbreviation for throttle.

To me, all caps should be viewed as an acronym. If you're including partial words, they should be lower case.

#38 4 years ago

I think FullT sounds a bit too close to Faulty

#39 4 years ago

FTSE
FTLE

#40 4 years ago

It would probably be easier for Heighway to just rename the pin before they ship too many

FTH for me

#41 4 years ago

F&T

See? The & looks like a (vertical) bike with handle bars!

#45 4 years ago

FullT was the clear winner

#46 4 years ago

Actually like FTH ( Rob's thought)....short, and to the point...I'd started a mini thread not seeing this one first....sorry....mark

#47 4 years ago

Internally we refer to the games as FTSE & FTLE - for the Standard & Limited Editions respectively

Make good sense to me!

Fish Tales Shark Edition.

Haha .

I like this one. The same way we refer to Data East Star Wars as DESW.
