Hi,

Has anyone compiled a list on some of the common acronyms used on this forum? If so, could you point me to it?

Like OOB for example. I see this when reading about the imbalance issues in this game.

Thanks!

OOB means "out of box", i.e no house rules or bid.

Thanks!

I see I probably should have posted this in the Player help forum.

Personally, I think I've seen more "OOB" useage when referring to sculpts/units that come with the game and/or replacing/supplementing them.

Then again, I'm highly obsessed with the unit sculpts.

OOB, or out-of-the-box, is used as an adjective that's paired with whatever thing is being talked about in a given context: OOB sculpts, OOB rules, OOB map board and so forth.  It basically refers to any component of an official A&A game in the form in which it's found inside the game box, without modifications.  For example when it refers to sculpts and units, as my fellow sculpt enthusiast Wolfshanze notes, the term can be used to draw a distinction between the sculpts in the A&A box and the sculpts that can be purchased from third-part sources like HBG, or alternately between the unmodified sculpts in the box and the painted versions of the sculpts that are customized by model-painting hobbyists.
