Everyone knows a few
acronyms. What about
stands for National
Or, how about
S.C.U.B.A.? Did you
know that SCUBA stands for
There are plenty of acronyms out there. The trouble is that they're
BORING! That got us thinking...What about if you could make your own silly
acronyms from random letters?? Now that might be fun! And that's how ACRONYMBLE
Playing ACRONYMBLE is easy:
In each round players get a
bunch of letters and decide for themselves what they might stand for.
If for example the letters for the round were
you might write:
Everyone writes their line
NOODLE) for the letters given on a
piece of paper and hands it to the leader of the round
The NYMWIT reads all the NOODLES without identifying the authors.
Each player then votes for the NOODLE that they liked best.
(NO VOTING FOR YOUR OWN!)
The current NYMWIT does not cast a vote, but DOES write a NOODLE
The NYMWIT then moves each player’s marker.
A player's marker moves one space if their NOODLE contained a sentence of at
least 3 words, and an extra space for every vote their NOODLE receives.
You wrote a sentence and got 2
votes...Move 3 spaces. or,
how about: You didn't write a sentence, but got 1 vote...Move 1 space...or,
You wrote a sentence, but
tragically, no one voted for you...Move 1 space.)
After all markers have been moved the next round begins
(with the person
to the left of the last NYMWIT becoming the new NYMWIT).
The 1st player to cross the finish line wins. Wasn't that fun???
