Previous Sets

Super ACRONYM is a high-difficulty pop culture set, and is also available on the archives.


ACRONYM began as a fundraiser for the quiz bowl team at Robbinsdale Armstrong High School in Minnesota. Initially running on NAQT questions, it later evolved into a house-written pop culture tournament, which was head edited by Matt Quinn. Beginning with ACRONYM VII in 2014, head editing duties were handled by Erik Nelson. A year later, ACRONYM VIII became the first ACRONYM to be mirrored across North America, and it has grown into the most widely-played pop culture set in the world for high school students.
