Double Digit Club

(5+ votes, Clean)
All of them


URGENT!

In December, the FCC will hold a critical vote about Net Neutrality.

If the big ISPs (Comcast, AT&T, and the like) get their way,
it will threaten the very existence of small, independent sites
like this one, which thrive on an open free internet -
not one with "premium fast lanes" - for those who pay big fees.

  • DoubleDigit Acros By Player available

    Index page for the Double Digit acros, organized by player name.
    (Those with fewer than three appear on the "Others" page.)

  • Please confine games which condone vulgar language to ADULT rooms only!
  • Wildcard letters introduced

    On a fairly infrequent basis, one of the letters will be an asterisk ( * ). In such a case, for that position in the acro, ANY word will match it, whereas otherwise the initial letter must match the given letter in that position.

Guidelines/Recommendations:

  • Player ID:
    • from 1 to 15 letters and digits, starting with a letter
    • User names are visible in the lobby to all.
      Choose a name which won't offend anyone.
      Names built on vulgarisms, racial or ethnic slurs,
      or other such words are not allowed.

  • Password:
    Type your password carefully and take note of it.
    All characters count, including blanks, and case matters!
  • Email address:
    You must provide an email address where you can receive a mail.
    To complete the registration process, you'll receive a mail at
    that address which will contain a you-need-to-click-it link.

    You will not be spammed, nor will we share, give, or sell your
    address to anyone without your permission, and we only use
    it ourselves for anything else only on rare occasions.

    We recommend AGAINST using temporary, throwaway addresses.
    The principal use we make of email addresses is to recover a lost
    or forgotten password. If you cannot get back to the original email
    address, you'll be unable to receive a new password.

    A special-purpose address (such as 'myacroname@gmail.com')
    can be created if you don't want to reveal your 'real' address.
    Some email providers allow you to create additional addresses
    linked to the same account.

    Carefully check you have entered your email correctly!
    Typos in emails ("gmial.com", etc) occur often, the result being
    you don't get the confirmation email, and have to create a
    different account.

What is a Story Game?

In a story game, the rounds are all connected by a plot line.

Round 1: Acros specify a title for the story, and the winner IS that.

Example: "Bob's New Car"

Subsequent rounds:
The topics weave the story:

Example: How did Bob pay for the car? ...
... (acros provide the answers)

Example: Tell us about Bob's accident ... (ditto)

... and it continues throughout the game in that fashion
until the last round.

A new game starts with a new title round for a new story.
