ACRONYM 11: Global Announcement

Post by InvadErGII »

Play Quiz Bowl LLC is thrilled to announce ACRONYM 11, the latest edition of our low-difficulty pop culture tournament. As with previous years, this will be geared toward a high school audience but will be accessible and enjoyable for players of all ages.

Set Info and Distribution

ACRONYM 11 will be written by the same team as ACRONYM X: William Golden, Danny Vopava, and myself. It will contain 12 packets (this is one more than last year). Distribution will be the same as last year as well:

4/4 Movies (split evenly between 2010s and before)
4/4 TV (about 65% will be 2010s and the rest older)
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

When Can I Play?

ACRONYM 11 will be available for mirrors beginning the weekend of February 17th. As of this time, the following events are scheduled:
