icon Guess The Acronym (+2)  
1. Somebody thinks of an acronym for something.
2. They give the acronym and a broad clue.
3. Over time, they provide more and more detailed clues.
4. Somebody guesses it. It is now their turn.

A simple example.
Acronym: WA

Click here to view the secret text
Answer:
Click here to view the secret text


The acronym can be for something obscure, but it should eventually be googlable with the clues.

---

I'll start off with one that I noticed recently.

acronym: DS
clue #1: Nintendo

Fun fact: Nintendo has never officially stated what the 'DS' in 'Nintendo DS' stands for. :p

Wikipedia says it's appparently Developers' System. *shrug*

Neither dual or double screen is what I am thinking of. (or Developers' System)

Clue #2: Gamecube

Those revealing messages are probably the clues.

I'll guess Hydrogen Bomb.
