    GAME: Acrophobia Lite

    I don't know if anyone else recalls the web game "Acrophobia". Basically, in Acrophobia people were given an acronym and then had rounds where a group of people tried to come up with the most interesting breakdown. Premiums were placed on humor and topicality, since there was usually a topic designation as well to steer people.

    How to adapt that here without a program to control the duration of the rounds and assist in the judging? Simple. Make a "round" a set number of posts, where people are obliged to use that acronym, and dump the judging aspect.

    Lets say a round is ten posts. The tenth poster declares the new topic and acronym letters. To mix things up we should (voluntarily) vary the length of the acronyms to play around with the difficulty. It should however, stay between 3 and 6 letters, since less is too easy and more is WAY too hard. And the resulting acronym has to make SENSE, as well as be on topic.

    So if I start with:

    TOPIC: "Animal Farm"
    ACRO: P.I.G.O.

    Then we need to produce ten "P.I.G.O." posts, producing on-topic, hopefully intelligent, and maybe humorous "answers".

    I'll do the first:

    ============================== ==

    TOPIC: "Animal Farm"
    ACRO: P.I.G.O.
