"So Many Acronyms So Little Time".

This game, as with many (and most offices), has a lot of abbreviations. I thought it would be nice if we could come up with a reference list. That way new players, return players, and those that are just having a "brain fart" can look them up right away rather than posting a question and waiting for a response.

So I'll start off with a few (but just a few, I'm supposed to be working :P ), I'll try to edit the list as more are added.

Actually, an acronym is a new word, not just an unpronouncable abbreviation (examples would be: laser, scuba, Aids, Trek-examples are Padd and Visor), and I always found the need to talk in gibberish abbreviations annoying. RATS (Running a tight ship) or DRAGS are okay, I can live with abbreviations of often-used cards like AWC or PNZ, but who really needs ODIGTTF or YABMF? Your readers will need more time to figure out what you're talking about than you would have needed to write those card titles out. Even "Death is Glory" or "Always Favorite" would be much cleverer.

Just my :twocents: (Euro-cents, that is!)

Yeah, I had a lot of local guys that referred to it the same way and even I use that one every now and then.
