Name That Campaign

Except for raising the money, the most challenging thing about a campaign may be naming it. (We know, because we've named a few of them.)

Inspired by a Chinese menu, this game started life as a spoof published on the back page of CASE Currents. Periodically updated, it has made three appearances in Currents and one in Harvard magazine.

For your enjoyment—and, perhaps, inspiration—we now present the interactive version.
