ACRONYMs

ACRONYMs (Alien Corrupt Recalcitrant Organisms Not Yet Manufactured) are central to this new game. The idea is to take a word mentioned in the previous post and make an acronym out of it, as demonstrated above with the word ACRONYM. The word can be contained in the acronym of the previous poster, or in a word provided by the previous poster for the next poster to make into an acronym. (NOTE: Each poster has to provide both of these.)

I'm considering adding awards to this. I may give out awards for number of posts, ingenuity of acronyms, relation of the acronym to the word it stems from (for instance CAR: Convertible Automotive Racing would work for this), and maybe others. Please advise.

(One more thing: I'm not too familiar with acronym-related jargon, and I'm not going to look it up because I doubt there's much beyond what I know, but if you happen to know that there's more, please tell me.)

The next poster can use one of the words from ACRONYM or this word:

In the rules it says you can take a word from inside the previous poster's acronym (which is what I did) instead of using the word they put out specifically for the next poster. Sorry for the confusion.

Maybe but I've given up the awards idea, I haven't seen any support and it's way too much trouble anyway.
