Game acronyms
circuit_four recently posted about "[figuring] out the solitaire rules for RFTG:TGS", which led to some acronym guessing. Clearly some Web-2.0-style crowd wisdom is called for here.

Poll #1368445 It's a board game of some sort

What does "RFTG: TGS" stand for?

Reach For The Gun: Total Galaxy Slaughter
6(25.0%)
Ronin Fox-morph Tranny Girls: Tokyo Glitter Samurai
7(29.2%)
Retail Frenzy, The Game: Teenaged Grabby Syndrome
4(16.7%)
Republican Foot-Tapping Guys: Totally Godly Sex
2(8.3%)
Read From The Guidebook: There's Goals Somewhere
3(12.5%)
Other! (see comments)
2(8.3%)

I'd play either half of option #2, really, and I can't imagine I'm alone.

Ten immediate Baxil points for "Radio Free *", which I tried to work in but was unable to find a good gag for.

Five extra-credit Baxil points for hilarious thematic cohesion with the remainder of the letters. :)

(ETA: Yes, I'm aware Babylon's not near the Ganges, I figured they were doing a traveling show.)

(In the computerized version, there's an easter egg involving a hidden fruit basket; if you try to photograph it you get a painting out instead, and some extra points.)

> Real Fun Teenage Games: Tank Gunner Simulator

Incredibly, over on our side of the pond it's been done.

> Red Fear Takes Greensboro: Those Guileful Soviets

I could see this game being awesome. It would basically be a zombie survival game with the Generic Bad Guys changed.

I don't count. I know the "correct" answer (which is, of course, the least interesting), so it's quite difficult for me to give an amusingly wrong one.

That would be "Race for the Galaxy: The Gathering Storm", however.

Can I suggest "Robert Frost's Tree Grove: They're Getting Snowy"? It would be like Robert Frost's Walk: The Movie: The Poem: The Game.

> Rigatoni Fulla Tortellini Gouda: That'sa Good Stuff

yo dawg i heard you like pasta so

... I mean to say: pasta fulla pasta? That's METAL. That's like a gun that shoots laser guns. Except edible.

"Can I suggest "Robert Frost's Tree Grove: They're Getting Snowy"?"

That would make much more sense!

"That's like a gun that shoots laser guns."

It's like a gun that shoots rakes! Or a puffer train that leaves a trail of glider guns! Or a rake that shoots puffer trains!

In the spirit of randomness (and for lack of inspiration), I wrote a quick script to sling words together. Here's some of the better ones:

Raven Freak Thoughtless Gloss: Treatment Garrulity Screen
Roan Fog Trainable Gravamen: Thou Gratuity Stated
Reluct Fabulous Twisted Greedyguts: Top Gross Sexualize
Rounded Foresight Treacherous Greenhorn: Tonic Gamelan Slip


Shame it's not of form "RTF[M]".
