- For Science!
- Mirage: Illusions and things that aren't really there. Or any other meaning of the word.
- Zodiac: Use any of the symbolism of the zodiac, just make sure that it impacts actual gameplay.
- Honey Badger: Use either word. Use both. Surprise me. Just use something.
This year we had a hard time thinking of themes, so you get four to pick from. Whichever you pick, be creative with it. Find meanings that I wouldn't have thought of; do something unexpected. Whatever you do, make sure that the theme impacts actual gameplay, and is not just a skin on top of the game.
