Acronym game.


I think anachronism is the right word. Okay, here's how we play the game. I pick the first word (I'm going to pick BLUE) and the next player makes an anachronism (if that is the right word) for instance...

BLUE - Bring Life Unto Eden

Then they suggest a word (eg SHIP) and the next player uses the letters to come out with something. A novel title, the name of a villain organization, or a secret government project... you choose.

Ready?

BLUE.

Giggle, Everyone! Anachronistic Revelers!

(Sorry. I just found the confusion of "acronym" and "anachronism" amusing. Have you ever seen the Civil War (etc) re-enactors? Now THOSE guys are anachronisms! And, yes, they make me giggle!)

Anyhow, I work on a satellite funded by the National Acronym Slinging Association (NASA), so I figured I ought to check this out at least once! Here's the next word:

Oops, embarrassing. Oh well... secret confession, I figured this game would help get better at doing these as I'm not terribly impressive.
