    Mmm themed acro... That sounds like a really fun idea :)))

    I was in there a little bit yesterday and it is quite... hmm... I wouldn't want to read that on a regular basis :p I don't want it in other rooms so why would I want it there? I think I'm going to wait until uc rooms are opened with it before I start playing it properly :)

    I'm not prudent and swearing and vulgar langauge is part of my life. What i disapprove of in the room is that people forego clever, mature and funny sentences that make the game fun and interesting, with immature, racist, sexist, and homophobic (and other words that end in ist) words stuck together.

    User created rooms are the way to go until there is a way to manage the normal rooms. I agree with spectre that we are made to play a certain in Isketch and with Acromania it gets thrown out of the window.

    I had a game where every answer bar mine was pretty much the same. There were 14 people in the room and the first letter was F and there was a Q in it and every answer except mine had F**k and Queer in it. None of them were good, most made no sense, but i have to vote for one to get points?

    My thoughts exactly :).

    I think having Acromania in a UCR is a great idea as it will allow the phrases to carry a certain theme (as long as players keep to it) and avoid phrases full of words intended simply to shock (unless, of course, that is the theme :p). I also with spectre that there is some hypocrisy between having such a controlled sketching environment, where explicit drawings are not allowed, even if they depict the word, and Acromania, where, from what I've encountered, anything goes.

    Just like a General Election xD.

    I could only stand 10 mins in this room last night. And yeah it all stems from the same reasons that everyone else has already raised as to why I hated it so much. Horrible room. Yet to play with decent players, so maybe that would improve it but meh, not enthused to really go back there at all.

    But overall it's good to see iSk constantly thinking up new ideas and improving the game in all sorts of ways, so I guess that counts for something. If only there were some kind of rules, without being too prudent, for this room that would make it enjoyable for all.

    Having Acromania as a user-created room is the best idea for it. If groups of friends wish to take part without other people being lewd they are able to control situations of lewdness.

    Acromania is a great idea for a new room and I love the Acromania specific wordlist themed rooms. Thanks for the info Clau :)

    yes, I would prefer every sentence to begin with H P , but it will be challenging to have other letters as well!
    What theme would you guys want? I mean its still the same letters as the normal Acromania rooms, just thinking in a certain direction other than 'sex-theme' would be great.

    One need to expand one's thinking, doesn't one?

    Well themes would be hard, i mean the game is kinda hard now. History theme, Animal theme, movie theme, music theme, space theme, food/drink theme etc are all pretty broad.

    Acrobot and I are tight, we like to bungee jump and take long walks on the beach.

    most fun of had on isketch in ages.

    Literally played it for about 3 hours straight.

    The other people were, for the main part, not idiots and it was all good clean fun, which I suppose is crucial to how enjoyable it is.

    I'm sitting in this room on my own now, someone wake up and play!

    Yes, this was pretty fun. :D
    I guess some of the answers I'll just have to kinda shift my eyes away from.
    But there are some that really have me laughing.

    Yes, indeed. Some people have natural talents in Acromania, some of their acronyms make me laugh, and I like it if the acronyms make sense and are well constructed.

    I've been playing in Acromania with my boyfriend (he's just sitting there giving me occasional suggestions) and it's been a very fun first-time experience. Took me some rounds before I figured out the objective of the game + how to play.

    Are we ever going to have a competition in that room?

    tbh, it seems that the game has kinda died down in excitement XD at least from what i've seen

    All you need to do is PM the word !rules to Acrobot, although there is a rather long explanation that almost fills the entire window.
