ACRONYM! - When you need something to do while waiting for your turn in those "turn-based" word games...
ACRONYM! - A game completely free of birds!
ACRONYM! is an online multiplayer word game where players join a room with up to 9 other players. Players are given a random acronym and compete by creating logical or humorous meanings. After time expires, each player votes anonymously for their favorite meaning (but not their own).
For example, the game might give you the acronym "TGR" to which you could submit, "This Game Rocks", or for "ILA" you could submit "I Love ACRONYM". The possibilities are endless, and only your creativity will win over the votes of the other players in the room. Do you have the vocabulary and quick wit to succeed? Download ACRONYM and put your humorous use of the english language to the test!

What's New in Version 2.0
TBP: Turn Based Play!
If you've never been able to play because no one is online when you are playing, you will enjoy the new turn-based game option. Turn-based play consists of 5 players and 3 rounds (a 3, 4, and 5 letter acro). You can start as many turn-based games as you want, and when others log in to play, they will complete their turns. The scoring system is a little different in turn-based play, and is more similar to traditional acro.
T.A.W.N.Y (This App Works Never, Y'all!)
I was so excited to play Acronym, hoping it would be some faint reflection of acromania from back in the day. Not even close. I started six games, thinking by casting a wide net I might get a better shot at a worthy opponent, but no. Days went by and no one would answer my cleverly crafted acronyms. Imagine my surprise when, upon checking back after seven days and expecting little, it seemed someone answered my call into the darkness. But when I click on that game, there is no correlating acronym, nothing from the other player but brooding blind silence. This app is utterly worthless, and I am crestfallen.
Well made game and potentially a lot of fun if more people would play. Developer should start promoting like crazy on Facebook (or similar platform) it's a shame all the work that was put into creating a fun word game app just to have it fizzle because not enough people know it's available & fun.
A social game without players
This has the potential to be a great game. It is a game I have always loved! But alas, it is a social game requiring players. There is never anybody else playing, no matter when or how often I check. Maybe to get this off the ground, the developers need to set up and advertise tournaments so people will show up at designated times. The turn based play doesn't interest me. As a matter of fact, the one game I have going has been sitting dead in the water for days now.
