Between LoL and ROFLMAO should be ROFL = rolling on the floor laughing
WB is welcome back
I sometimes use lo for hello

Some people abbreviate Rhydderch to Rhy or Ry
DD or Dyzzle for D-Dyzzle :P

Someone recently used TV for Thora's Vengeance
HLD is Hot Lava Death (coined by the creator of the lava set and now a website)
MBS for Me-Burq-Sa used by you in your Battle Reports

Hot Lava Death was something on a board game website or blog of some sort and placed on the packaging as an inside joke.

funrun is surprisingly tart
Nice little reference thread u started here D-Dyzzle. So long as this thread stays on-topic, I think it's sticky-worthy. I also edited the thread title to be a little more explanatory.

Read my blog for interesting randomness as it comes to me.

Hot Lava Death was first mentioned by one of the game designers back on .net when the designers used to hang with us. It was the first hint that we would have the lava set.

The website came after or at least that is what I recall. The sticker on the game pack included a picture of the designer who made the comment, and yes it was an inside joke both within Hasbro and for the people on .net.

By the way Dyzzle... you mispelled the abbreviation for me. Its Rhy not Ryh!

*grumbles*

You can also add in .net and HSHQ for the two precursors of Heroscapers since they are sometimes mentioned.
