Super ACRONYM 2: Global Announcement

Post by InvadErGII » Mon Aug 20, 2018 11:34 am

In addition to the previously announced ACRONYM 12, Play Quiz Bowl is also producing Super ACRONYM 2 for summer 2019. As with the last one, this will be pretty hard, have a lot of interesting answer lines, and be a lot of fun.

Set Info and Distribution

Super ACRONYM 2 will be written by Erik Nelson, Danny Vopava, and Travis Vitello (this is the same team as the previous set). It will also use the same distribution as the last Super ACRONYM:

4/4 Movies (split evenly between the ~2000s and earlier)
4/4 TV (same split as above)
4/4 Music (1/1 each of pop, rock, rap/r&b and other/multi)
4/4 Sports (1/1 each of baseball, football, basketball, and other/multi)
1.5/1.5 Games (mostly video games)
1/1 Trash Lit
1.5/1.5 Other/Miscellaneous

But When?!?!

If you're reading this, you can schedule a mirror right now! Just shoot me a PM.

You missed the fantastic opportunity to call this Super Acronym 2: Electric Boogaloo.

This set is fully edited and ready for mirrors starting this weekend! Please don't hesitate to reach out if you'd like to have this mirrored in your area. There are a couple of other quick announcements regarding this set:

- Travis Vitello also joined up as a writer for this set.
- The distribution was announced to be the same as ACRONYM 12, but the set was built using the original Super ACRONYM distro. This is a minor difference (the set now has 1.5/1.5 games and 1.5/1.5 miscellaneous instead of 1/1 and 2/2, respectively), but it likely warrants mentioning. This was a total oversight on my part and I apologize for any inconvenience. The OP has been updated to reflect this.

Can a private forum be set up for this?
